Re: Distributor issue.

Phil, it’s a Bosch cap, the rotor arm contact was dull in appearance, I’ve now cleaned it with fine wet&dry paper, and looks ok. It’s the chips I was concerned about.

Re: Distributor issue.

Thanks Phil but the thing is virtually flush and the carbon acts like a lubricant. However just before you posted I tried to delete my post but couldn’t, presumably because you were replying. The reason being one hour five minutes into the job I’ve done it. Surprisingly, some strong adhesive tape ra...

Distributor issue.

I’ve been struggling for the last hour, trying to remove the centre carbon from a distributor cap, it’s almost flush and tweezers simply slide off the material. Any other ideas how to remove it ? I doubt glue would stick to it.

Re: Tin opener.

Sainsbury sell tin openers that open tins. I believe there are two to choose from, the cheaper one works and I’ve no doubt the expensive one does too. I know your not interested but my Grandmothers tin opener also works.

Re: hood blown back

Re: diff drain plug - magnet clearance

Re: Stock pile

Apparently they are there as evidence. Good luck in picking out a boat from that random heap, if indeed that is the reason. How would they connect the people to the specific boat? Hardly uncontaminated evidence. I’ll have to investigate further.

Stock pile

Re: Headliner bows

I found this picture after a search, so haven’t got the actual item. From memory, imagine a tube that’s been flattened along its length, and the spring assembly pushed into the ends.
