Re: Sub Frame Mounts

There are 2 short and 2 long mounts at the front and at the back.

The F has rubber bushes in the subframe mounts whereas the TF has bushes that are not rubber filled.

The rubber bush gives a softer ride and reduces the chances of rusting out.

Re: Misfire

If the heater circuit is switched on and off it will be controlled by the ECU - it is there to get the probe up to temp quickly to enable early accurate readings. I can't see it being a problem if the heater is always on, the exhaust will run hotter anyway.

Or you could find a car with body work in good condition but poor mechanics and swap the panels over leaving basically just...

Re: Suplex Kit

Did VHS beef up the anti roll bars?

Were they bigger on the TF?

Re: Water inside hardtop!

The bit that’s between the rear window screen and the side window, on a car with a roof I think are referred to as A pillars. There is a plastic cover on the inside. The A pillar is the front one, by the windscreen, B pillar is behind the front door so between the doors on a four or more door car. ...

Re: Parking sensors ~ where does the feed come from?

If the reverse lights work the sensor should.

As already said the feed comes from the reverse light, earth to the chassis, probably via the rear light cluster.

Re: alternator testing

Where did you read the voltage, it will be highest at the alternator and lower at the battery. A slipping alternator belt when cold can be an indication that the alternator is being worked hard to replenish the battery after a cold start. Check the condition of the belt and it's tension before conde...
