    Recommended Battery Cable Size

    current draw will be between 100- 150 amps, sometimes more depending on temperature conditions , go for 322/0.30, 25mm², 10mm, 170A , cross section is 10mm or go next size up 35mm², 12mm cable cross section size, rated to 240A. If Halfords don't have it, find your local Durite stockist, they should sell it to you by the metre

  4. you could try putting some of those unibond aero 360 things in when your parked usually quite cheap in asda or tescos...if they don't work you've only lost a tenner
  5. Wonder if the Passat later version calipers would fit, the ones with the electric handbrake, and would that retrofit be legal?

    brake caliper

    sorry admin if this is allowed, delete if not ....quoting a bit from from an old post from lotus basically the guy has been getting his reconditioned calipers for a late s4 elan "The number stamped on the caliper casting looks like 64327547. The guy at Classicar Automotive thought the number should be 64327863. Neither of these part numbers are listed in Paul Ribinshaw's Elan book. I am rather perplexed as there seem to be so many possible Girling part numbers! Can ayone shed any light on this part number issue or had a similar problem Thankyou in anticipation" I have discovered a brand new Girling caliper. in the deep forgotten depths of our obsolete stockroom at work It is of unknown origin but has both said numbers casted on either side of the unit looks similar to but the brake line enters in the side , back of the piston and not the top as in the caliper in the link any use to anyone? yours for price of P & P or the inconvenience of collection in Newcastle upon tyne
