Your CK just gets better and better each time you modify it.

Looks really good Geoff. How much travel does it have?

It's about 3 1/2" but spring units are adjustable.

Hi Geoff. I love the rear subframe suspension, I have been contemplating the same thing for my next project (still way off).
As with all complex vehicles requiring technical feedback I see you have a 'black box' up front. Is that still an 03-803 in there?? Brilliant !!

Thanks Geoff, just got chance to watch the video through, and you've provided the solution to the spongy, dead feeling cable drum on the Morgan. Hydraulic is the way to go, just ordered the bits.

Modified Honda backplate. Cut off speedo drive with hacksaw, clean up and create hole for alloy disc, weld or lock in with
grub screws (As shown)  back plate is "handed" so one will need extra mod, remove original cable fixing bolt on alloy block to take slave cylinder as shown.
 cheers, Geoff

Thanks Geoff, it should actually be quite simple on the back end of the Morgan, at most it'll need a bushing in the eye the cable runs through.
