I need to replace my Black and silver number plates, so I need a recommendation please , as most of you know the p6 plates are wider than standard. If I ordered as for example from ebay they would not fill the back plate.

Has anybody info on fitting a check valve on the BW 35 gear box to stop drain back, I understand that one can be fitted to the return pipe on the oil cooler if so what type/part number should be used

Just a query, apart from fitting styles are condensers all rated the same? for example I have a condenser (new) from my 2.2 p6 and it is the same fitting style as my sons mk3 ford zodiac 6 cylinder, can it be used on his car ?. I now have electronic ignition so it is no longer needed.
