Re: Yoeddynzs 1965 Hillman Imp project with Datsun A12 power

I have wondered about synthetic rubber (such as polyurethane) for driveshaft couplings for Imps (and other cars). Did your mate make their own couplings or can they be purchased somewhere? :?:

Re: ... LTU 378C ...

The air filter gaskets' cut-outs allow the float chamber to breathe. If they were blocked, say because the wrong gaskets had been used or they had been fitted the wrong way around or misaligned, the engine would run badly.

I am probably 'preaching to the choir' here, of course! :wink:
