        Hi Dave thanks as for the misfire the engine was misfiring when it was cold I ran the engine up to running temperature and the misfire disappeared, but today the engine stalled went to start it back up and the misfire reared it ugly head once more can you throw some light on this.

          Dave you was the first person to see the car after I bought it you have been a great help throughout the rebuild and thanks for the under tray I still have not fitted it. I have a question after rebuilding the suspension the car riding higher I have used the existing springs but did change the shocks to Bilsteins can you throw any light on this

            If you 're used the original springs it should settle back down to where it was. The shocks shouldn't alter the ride night at all. Did you seat the springs in the cups properly? The end should be against the stop on the cup.

                  It will settle a bit as it’s driven. All the old bushes will have sagged so it will look a bit taller with fresh ones

                      That shouldn't alter the ride height at all.

                      Did you tighten the bushes once the weight of the car was on the suspension, or when it was in the air still? Especially the wishbone bushes.
