Re: Oblongs & Circles

There’s an analogy here to a blackadder episode about Dr Johnson’s dictionary. He finishes this work of art only to have suggested to him more words that he had not included! :D

Re: Pickup

Nice but not as original as the other one. I think those prices are exceptional , even so, the first one sold.

Re: Gearbox woes

Whilst it saves the job of clutch shaft alignment, installation of the combined assembly will involve the extra work of dismantling the front radiator panel, with the inherent danger of the threaded trim fixings breaking off, if the front is not already off, think twice about disturbing it.

Re: Stolen EBAY UK

I’m not sure you’re right to say there is a blissful indifference to research, granted we’re not all compiling a data base, what would be the point of that, we’d all be logging the same details. The fact that folk have shown considerable interest in the offer to buy your book suggests there is suppo...

Re: Installing a windscreen

There’s no joining piece with the plastic filler strip, so be sure the ends butt together tightly.

Re: Installing a windscreen

I think it worth getting sealant specific for windscreens, the string will need to be strong, preferably a cord about
3-4mm diameter, pull the cord slowly when installing screen to avoid tearing the rubber.

Re: Installing a windscreen

One thing I would say Russ, when the screen is in place is to make sure the filler strip is pushed well into the corners making sure the rubber is spread tight to the metal aperture. I put the rubber onto the screen first, then used the string method to get it in place. Good luck, it can be tricky a...

Re: Moss Viton sender unit gaskets - a warning!

Just a thought, If the gasket is made from a type of rubber, maybe the added sealant caused it to slide, resulting in the gasket being squeezed out.

Re: Minor Identification Booklet

I think it inevitable that no matter when released there will be long lost vehicle numbers crop up from time to time, that have evaded inclusion. Similar to the thoughts of Russ, maybe this could be dealt with by updates or supplements.
