This info I liberated from one of the old UMM Club alternative parts guides PDF – should be available on this site somewhere together with a bunch of old magazines scanned in as PDF – some of the early ones were really good with technical info and suggestions.. also an interesting read when these vehicles were available in period.
Good luck and let us know how you get on!
ps. I can’t see Filipe list one on his website but might be worth dropping him an email: email@example.com (www.pecas-umm.com) – he’s been pretty helpful with getting parts for mine.
