I know post '70 engines are ok on unleaded, little unsure about before then.
Unleaded conversion kits are available but they're about Â£300 but do included heads and stuff. Not needed if it's a post 70 engine.
I'm sure someone on here will come to your rescue and say that I'm talking shit!!! :D...

no need for any conversions which is nice :D

68 on engines are fine, just retard the ignition a couple of degrees to account for the lower octane rating.
As for the seals, get a complete gasket set from GSF. Â£10.50+vat, flywheel oil seal and rubber ring Â£2.00 & 90p +vat.
Should be all you need. :)

cheers guys thanks for your help. one more question. how easy is it to replace all the window seals on the car? and where would i get them from?

pretty straightforward, just need some string and an extra pair of hands.
Last set of bug rubbers I got where from custom and commercial and were a spot on fit
