If you are using the car as a road car then why upset its characteristics by ending up with a heavy clutch pedal.  I have used borg and beck lotus twincam pressure plates for years and they are a straight fit with no sign of slipping. MGB pressure plates are also a direct fit.

Finally, the all stainless headers, 24" mufflers and undercar exhaust system are complete. Thanks to meticulous planning, the original ground clearance has been maintained and there is ample room between the header and the footbox for air flow and heat shielding, despite 1 7/8" primaries, 2 1/2" system. In a RHD car, the motor offset reduces the drivers footwell width by a full 1", compared to LHD, so you need to get your comprises right. Simpson Race Exhausts, here in the UK made light work of the installation and I particularly like the elegant and compact, one bolt jointing system used. Thanks to this the headers can be removed in situ, without removing the steering. Hopefully first fire up, the weekend after this.

Thanks Luke, and thanks for the good advice via pms.
It's annoying when a dealer who is selling a car at that price automatically assumes it has a Moss box...
As mentioned, if the situation changes I'll give you a ring.

Vintage, PVT & 2 Litre Forum / Vintage steering boxes
« Last post by galfredus on April 17, 2019, 22:15:17 »
Evening all,

I'm seeking some reassurance from more experienced members re the steering boxes on vintage ACs. In one of the docs in the members area the AC steering box is described as a close copy of the Marles of the period. (Interesting note, if my researches are correct, John Weller's brother was involved in the design of the Marles box).

Im also an Alvis enthusiast, and a Marles box was used on later vintage Alvises. A few years ago there was veritable panic among the membership of the Alvis register regarding hidden cracking of the shaft inside the steering box.

My (obvious) question is: Is the AC steering box known to have similar problems?

All guidance gratefully received.

They do look fantastic!
It's been an epic journey, but the results appear to justify the efforts. Can't wait to see them in chrome, and fitted to an Ace!  8)

Thanks for the photos, Gary. Didn't quite make up for not being there, but much appreciated!
