OK so I got the caliper plate sorted the boys at work machined one face on the plate to ensure the caliper mounts square with the stub after oxy cuttig, they also did a bit more machining on the in-err side of the hub so it doesn't foul on the caliper plate, and so the bedford bearing seal fit's into the Vn hub.

No matter what the question is, the answer is always more horsepower!

thats a good comparison, i knew i ground 1-2mm off but didn't really have any way to visually see the before and after!

I'm using the complete vn loom out of the donna car, that's why I changed the dash using the vn instruments so it all plugs straight back in, I'm trying to keep cost's down and use what I already have pretty mush all vn ruining gear into the Bedford

Hi Phill,
I used all the vn loom wiring  made it easy for all the switches and instruments to match in, cluster just plugs in.  Had to extend some wires and shorten others but everything works.   Having said that I like and used  the vs dash and cluster as well as the steering column,. Vs also plugs straight in to the same 3 plugs of vn BUT THE WIRING IS DIFFERENT. There are 3 or 4 earth and power wires that are different and the cluster will start to smoke,. 😖  Yes found that out first hand, fortunately not to mutch damage 😀     only have to work out the headlight and wiper wires to get everything working correctly.  The wiper plug fits the beddie wipers and it works on slow/fast/ intermittent. 
Keep up the good work so far.
Julian
