  1. @ OP Check the drop links (I've snapped one in the past) if not that it's a bush or 2 that have worn. Its not usually something you can see unless they are hanging out but they have worn out most likley on one of the control arms. Not so sure on the 370 depends on age but IMO the ARB on the back end of a 370 is a bit whimpy to start with - upgrade made a huge difference on mine.
  2. What you think I haven't been up to my neck in it ???!!!! To be honest I have been really busy with loads of stuff, work is manic and there are possibilities of some major changes in the company in the next few months, if these do go ahead then there will be some lifestyle changes for me and the good lady wife. This has also got me thinking about my current project list along with the huge number of other things (not necessarily car related) that I want to do. There is a very strong possibility that I will bin the Pop Z project as something has to give and I can't bring myself to let go of the Radical just yet!!! Believe me when she is running right (which is not very often ) there is nothing like it as a driving experience, or at least nothing else I can afford to do! I also do not have a limitless supply of this thing they call money and you can only spend it once - being as I'm getting older (read got old) there are a few other things we would like to do which unfortunately also cost money! So if anyone wants to do a 350 or 370 LS swap drop me a PM I have an LS engine and gearbox that would drop in a treat going up for sale It's not all doom and gloom though so do not fear, We still have to get round to another complete redesign on the Radical to stop the bloody thing melting / blowing up on track, The Electric go carts project is still being progressed and I still have the GTR in the "Stables" for those occasions where a pleasant drive out is in order I'll catch you up on the E Carts soon as we built another one and in the meantime this happened. Yes I had to collect @Beb 370 after it broke down Original diagnosis was CPS, also the battery died and would not take a charge, Beb replaced the CPS and put on a new battery, The Z then started but wasn't right, I diagnosed a seized aircon pump from what I could see looking between the rad fans and the engine (not much) Unfortunately I was close it was something sized but it turned out to be the Supercharger !!!!! The Zed is currently in the Zed Shed II in bits while we try to source a replacement C38 – 81 Rotrex SC! Not sure what happened, the cause is oil starvation, but we have no idea where the oil went, the reservoir was checked on a regular basis, I found no leaks, split pipes or damage to the oil cooler. There was no oil in the undertray or on Beb’s drive (which is block paved and you would see it). My current theory is that the seal on the main shaft went and the oil pumped through the engine, but we will never really know what happened. More on that story soon. Keyser Maximum Effort

  7. Me I'm the supervisor I personally don't report to anyone (except Mrs Keyser when I'm in need of plasters / medical attention and dripping blood - happens more often than you'd think ) But I do have the T-Shirt to cover this - What you can't see in that picture is the last line of the notice - Here is a close up There are a few Notices in the Zed Shed Keyser
  8. The long set of draws is from SGS https://www.sgs-engineering.com/stc9600b-stainless-steel-work-bench Very impressed with the quality especially given the price - go look at the price of a snap on Would recommend it - but you need a long space to fit it! They do a couple of smaller ones. The tool box is from eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/40-US-PRO-MASSIVE-TOOL-CHEST-CABINET-BOX-STAINLESS-STEEL-54-FINANCE-AVAILABLE/311124254989?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 Not as good as the SGS one quality wise but given size and price I think it's OK my Mac Tools one is a lot better quality but costs 4 time more, for what I wanted I'm happy it will do the job but if you want something more "rugged" you will be paying a lot more - Of course I don't know how they will last, I'll let you all know if they start falling apart
  9. Ha - Got ya! Thanks mate I almost feel bad - only ALMOST If you doodle on my walls you will have Mrs Keyser to answer to - I wanna be there for that
