    Bonnet compatibility

    The front panel is further back on the series 1 4 pot which is the real differnce. You could be unlucky and buy a 4 pot bonnet that someone has fitted the ally trim to.

    The V8 has the aluminium trim across the front.

    If it's a Series 1 V8 bonnet you would be OK

    Please listen to this: sound of not starting

    That sounds like the starter motor whirring after the bendix has been thrown out. (Inertia starter motor) and if that's the noise you mean I can't see that stopping the car starting, after all, it still cranks, it just won't start. I'd be checking the usual suspects.

    Bonnet compatibility

    A series 1 V8 bonnet will fit a series 2 car, but a series 1 4 pot bonnet wont, and a series 2 and series 1 V8 bonnet wont fit a series 1 4 pot car without modifications. I think.....

    HIF6 bimetal failure

    At the time you are suffering the high idle speed I'd make sure that it isn't the linkage sticking and causing it, or an air leak on the inlet side, and after that checks out OK you're probably right about the bimetallic strips. PS did you centralise the butterflies when you fitted them?

    AED versus Choke Conversion

    If you have the late shorter kickdown cable and bracket then as far as I remember nothing needs changing apart from the carbs and manifold. (Obviously you will need the linkages between the carbs but they should come with if you buy the lot as a unit).

    AED versus Choke Conversion

    Peronally I'd fit a pair of HIF6's and manifold and be done with it.

    Propshaft alignment

    Yes, providing that the arrow marks on the short yoke and the prop tube are in line.

    Bell crank bushes and front damper works

    I had seen vids of this and didn't know about the frame by frame option, but I had always thought it was brake related rather than suspension movement related, the problem being that applying the brakes also makes the suspension dive, but if we agree it's brakes, then compressing the suspension...

    Bell crank bushes and front damper works

    I'm struggling to see how that extra link between the top balljoint nut and the nut on the end of the bellcrank can acheive anything unless the bellcrank itself is flexing and I doubt that. Those two points are fixed ends of the bellcrank and all the link does is triangulate it, which if it is...

    Bell crank bushes and front damper works

    Later joints came with Nylocs, so I see no problems with retro-fitting one.

    You could use a Nyloc instead of drilling another splitpin hole.
