Excellent work Colin 👍

Your Stratos replica is going to be a bloody road rally weapon 😎

Looking forward to the progress, Ciao

I stayed with the standard linkage, but had new long cables made to run behind and under the engine... There was going to be a fair bit going on in front (cooling pipes and hoses etc).

Some Black magic including sacrificing a few black cockerels to make the 916 shifter work well...

Plus: an eye watering $800 bill to make the cables!!!!!

Who did you get to make up the cables, looks like they used the original factory end fittings?

Hi Colin, try Retro Spares, Eltham and Flexible Drive, Kensington. The latter once made up a 105 tacho cable for me many years ago.

Hi Colin, I just wanted to say that I am loving your work!
I am a designer not an engineer, and I am really developing an appreciation for the creative/problem solving element of your engineering work as well as the technical aspects.
Cheers,
Al.

Cheers Al, glad your enjoying it, and don't worry there is no shortages of problems to be solved in this project!, I've managed to engineer myself into a pretty big hole with the driveshaft situation, so that should show up in the next few videos.

Thanks John, I'd actually already sent Flexible drive an e-mail, nothing back yet, might try and ring them tomorrow, looks like retro spares just sell already manufactured cables, but given they are about 100m from my house I'll give them a try also!

From memory, it was Flexible Drive. Good to deal with... They did warn me it would not be cheap!

My drives were a challenge: mixture of Lancia Beta bearings, Alfa 916 flanges and Nissan stud pattern.  :o

And yes, they reused as many parts as they could.
