Hi Andy,
Just take a 1/4" to 1/8" reducer.

Doh! of course, thanks Eric.

Actually, things have taken a slight twist. I have agreed a price that would allow an engine rebuild, should that be necessary, although I hope it won't. So I will be joining your ranks - looking forward to it.

My 1972 Jenen-Healey has just sold, so the Plus 2 will have the garage to itself! It would have been a tight squeeze to get them both in there.

Really appreciate all your help in getting me this far guys.

Well done Andy!

It looks a really nice straight car, I'm sure it will give you a lot of pleasure.

Right, the car is being delivered tomorrow. I'll take some pics at some point and let you know how things progress.

I bought it at a price that allows a £5k engine rebuild if that proves necessary, but I'm hoping it won't!

Hugely grateful to everyone who took the time to comment and help me.

Cheers,
Andy
