Hi mate,

I had the very first 4 valve classic mini kit from rayvern and worked with them to iron out the issues.
The first kits were two valve but gave Issues with levelling etc

I’ve noticed that you’ve got just two switches “front” and “back”. In all honesty you’d be better off having two fronts and two backs.. you can fit a switch link to control both rams at the same time if you wish but you’d still have the individual control for bleeding the system and levelling control issues etc.

Rayvern states these are self bleeding but I found that the only way to fully bleed these was to pre fill the ram and pipe off the car and then fit it to the car and pump.

I’ve got the original wiring diagram somewhere if it’s helps (doesn’t look like you’ll need that though)

That's really interesting. I was going to have 2 front 2 rear switches but ray said I wouldn't need to. And I wanted them for exactly the reason you said - to get them all equal. As the cub may be not exactly equal in each corner, I was going to see what it's like and then may be have ray knock up some collars/spacers to sit on the ram.
Regarding filling up the pistons before installation, pity you did say earlier as I've put them in today. I might have to pick your brains on the wiring to the compressor if I may.
Unfortunately the witing diagram ray sent over was a very pale picture taken on his phone.

It was a lot of years ago now but I’m shocked he said not to bother? Your thoughts are the same as mine so maybe it’s the right way to go on your build

Think I'll need steering rack bump stops, judging by the tyre Mark's on the inner arch.

I will find the original wiring diagram I played with for Ray

It was a lot of years ago now but I’m shocked he said not to bother? Your thoughts are the same as mine so maybe it’s the right way to go on your build.

Please feel free to pm me any questions


Will do cheers. I'll PM a picture over to you with some coloured arrows on.
Think ray was saying to get it up and running initially, just use the 2 switches. I was originally thinking of key fob controllers but I didn't think it would suit the car as much as a curly cord would.

Here’s what I sent ray..

So all those earth points on the motor go to the bolt that sticks out (what I have put the blue line to)? And the spade terminal on the solenoid (with the other blue line) links to the bolt that sticks out too?
