A very kind invitation, Richard! Whether or not I attend would depend on what's on the menu!

Very interesting. Have you noticed how the plunger plug leads seem to go over the head to the crossbar yet the swinging arm ones go along the top fin (and look very untidy in my opinion!). Also some of the rocker oil pipes are different, some sag down towards the plug, others bridge over the plug.
Happy New Year!

Are the versions with heat-shrink tubing original? The top plunger picture appears to show a solid tube. Regarding running next to the head or down from the crossbar, I wonder if it was based on the running temperature of the iron head versus the alloy. I plan to copy this wire bundling for my SA alloy head this weekend.

All original, Richard.
Scanned from the road tests of the day.
The tubing isn't heatshrink but good old PVC.
