Re: Dash panel removal

I can’t imagine the entire dash board is the subject of this enquiry, because it would be readily seen that it is part of the structure and not removable without an electric grinder ! Without further clarification I would hazard a guess at the glove box lids but there again the the screws for remova...

Re: Large Vacuum pipe angled out of HS2 S.U body

If it’s the angled brass tube, I’ve seen it fitted with a plastic restrictor. I’m not clear as to why this was.

Re: Clutch stuck on

I think I must have. A good friend of mine built the garage, using Thermalite blocks inside, brick outside, cavity in between.

Re: Clutch stuck on

Reading this post yesterday I started to worry. I haven’t use my pickup for well over a year, and the van for a good few months, so today set about freeing the suspected stuck clutches. Panic over, both vehicles started, and no clutch issues. I must have have fitted special super duper plates!! :D I...

Re: Engine in bits for a rebore-anything else worth doing?

Looking at those pictures, piston ring compressors have come a long way. Mine must been made just after the internal combustion engine was invented! :D

Re: Rolling Road

Ok thanks, looks like £100-150 for a session. Is that right in anyone's experience? As a starter for 10, I'm going to put a BDL needle (MG Metro) in my HIF44. Planning also on fitting a Piper MB270 camshaft, I will get my existing camshaft reground to this spec, as it's cheaper, and allows me to re...

Re: Torsion Bar replacement

I doubt you’ll get away with that area of the crossmember, I suspect the hole had been well distorted. A picture of the torsion bar in place would be interesting, to see the extent of the bend ( the other side of the nut)

Re: Brake fluid theory

I suspect the reason is, dot 4 is cheaper than silicone! I did hear that Rolls Royce use silicone fluid, can’t confirm that though. I have used it for a number of years and can’t report any issues.

Re: Stopped getting notifications

I can’t recall when I last received a notification of a new post, although I get them for the lcv register. However I just click the ‘New Posts’ heading on the forum to see what’s new. That’s how I get round the issue. I’ve given up wondering why computers do what they do!

Re: Vacuum take off on Minisport manifold

The banjo fitting suggestion sounds the best option, should be well within the 2cm clearance you have, along with the advantage of being positioned in any direction.
