You ought to be posting this on the FB EK site Laurie. Not that it isn’t appreciated on here. Adjustable main jet as Bruce says. I have no experience with them but anecdotally they are pointless and troublesome.

The bonnet locks are primitive and temperamental at best but can help by stopping the bonnet rising at speed.

Original coil but the resistor and bracket I don’t think is.

If you don’t want it I would love to buy the odd seatbelt buckle. My first EK had those old Hemco belts, but one of the springs has broken. Hemco are still OEM and after market Australian manufacturers.

I matched a bit of new vinyl from Daleys trimmer suppliers and replaced the top horizontal panel on my sedan rear seat, using wife’s sewing machine. Machine was never the same, oh well….

Thanks Clay.  I will get around to having a look at the FB-EK forum, but just don't have the time right now. If I track down another belt in the same material as the rest, the Hemco is yours.
