HT lead layout

Hi Thanks for the diagram, I put the HT Leads as shown in the diagram, she now turns over, but does not start. As I had changed the rotor arm and distribution cap, I decided to put back the old set, but I'm unsure if the timing has been altered. Is it possible to alter the timing by 'just' changing ...

Carpets

As well as replacing the gearbox and clutch, the brown carpet of my 110 V8 has seen its day. With kids, dogs and kayaks often taking a place inside her, I was wondering if anyone has had experience with refitting carpet, rubber matting, or found a cost effective method of taking care of this issue, ...
