The P38's are a heavy beast, looking for brake upgrades that people have tried and work well?

15 June 2020 - 08:08

Thankyou all for your input, very helpful. I will start to sort out a full brake overhaul, think that is the best way forward.

Thanks once again everybody, they do look good those Brembo calipers. But i will paint them black when they are overhauled. Think i will go for EBC pads with a good set of quality discs maybe braided hoses as i had them on my 90 and where very good.

Thankyou everybody, My Hankook will be delivered today (ordered Monday morning). hope it will be a quick swap.

Will add it to my to do list, which connection should i connect to on the alternator or would i piggy back off of an existing cable?

12 June 2020 - 10:08

That's great thanks for that. Will look for some good leads.

Hello all,
looking for a new battery for my 4.6 Gems any help would be great. Last battery lasted just over a year from Euro car parts.

Hankook arrived yesterday, fitted this morning. reset windows started great. thankyou for the tip re table that helped a great deal. new battery fits nice and cables reach fine. have read about an extra cable from the alternator to the battery direct. Has anybody carried out this cable upgrade?

Hats off to Gordon,
that sounds like a great idea. I did think the other site was slowing up a bit.
I do admit i enjoyed doing to o rings.
It's nice to look over other peoples P38s and get hints and tips.
Roll on the end of lockdown.

Well i am a plumber, have a box of o rings, I understand its frustrating when you try to help people and you get no feedback. but you are a godsend in my eyes. Keep calm and carry on the good work.
