I can do that, not a problem, it will be on top of the rocker cover price, as an extra. All prices to be announced! still waiting on the pattern! But once that is done, it will be plain sailing! I will be doing a run of about 10 to start with, 4 already called for.

Anyone know where I can get clear ht like this? (I want the ones that allow you to see when it sparks)

I think you can get them from Minispares, but you won't see anything when it sparks - its just conducting electricity afterall - the sparks don't travel along a tube ;-)

 

The only things you can get to allow you to see when it sparks is either an '90s clear dizzy cap or you can get a Gunson thing that goes between the HT lead and the plug for diagnostic purposes, but these aren't meant to be on all the time and will probably weaken the spark.

That did make me laugh. ;-)

 

Will the red Horsman lettering be standard or will it be an optional extra at extra cost?

I heard of some ages ago that you could see the spark, the outer insulation was made of material that reacted when energised and changed colour, you wouldn't have been able to see the spark go along, but the whole thing would have 'flashed'

I will have to see how costings go, If I can do it standard, I will, however it seems quite a few people are wanting colour options, so I may make it bare alloy as standard, the red a cheap option, and a custom colour as a bespoke option.

 

I've been let down by the manufactures of the sleeve nuts I wanted, so I am trying to source another engineering company.

 

Seems to be a lot of hassle and waiting around, but I will make this work!!

 

 

Edit: Also, coming soon, Horsman Conversions exhaust backbox  ;-)
