    Re: I hate this

    Hey, TOC, they have two wheel boxes for 120/140/150 on ebay.uk for $150. Might be close to what you need. Page 21.

    My nephew just had the same problem in his Toyota. Wound up being an intermittent problem in the alternator. Might put in a temporary votage gauge and see if it cuts out, kills car and resets on...

    His designing is great, but not my taste. Do like him over most designers. Fabricators of off customs are fine, I won't buy them but will look at them. Just can't get the wheels, still on the old...

    Re: Camping

    That's how we use the small rv, get out and away. Take the boat do some fishing, fall asleep and find ourselves on the other side of the lake. Pull up to camp, light a fire and wait for the stars. ...

    If you have to ask, you probably will get sticker shock. You've had the car for 40 yrs, time to repay it and get it done. Ask your local machine shop their hourly wage for work and an average time...

    Might check battery, no codes and warning lights doesn't mean battery good. Engine needs 9volts to keep computor running. Once engine is off, sometimes a slight rest raises voltage to start. This...

    Re: XK120 fit 140 rack & pinion

    You might take pictures of a 140 and try to copy. Measure 140 rack and see if it will fit. A lot of hot rods use Mustang II racks, cheaper and maybe smaller.

    Re: XK120 fit 140 rack & pinion

    There is a company in England that rebuilds the steering box and changes the gearing to make it respond as rack and pinion. Costs less than trying to engineer the rack into a 120. Don't know the name...
