Re: Disc brakes

I think it’s horses for courses.... we can do ,or not do, whatever we choose to our cars. Provided it’s legal of course :D.
And the degree to which we ‘improve’ them depends upon personal taste and how the car will be used.

Re: Morris Art

The characters in the pictures appear to be wearing COVID face masks 😷.
An example of Morris owners being ahead of their time?

A late, great, contributor to this forum would have had a lot to say about headlight peaks :lol:
Suffice to say, he wasn’t keen on them...

Re: Van cab seal leak

I know that boat owners swear by Capt Tolley’s for stopping leaks from windows.
It is a very useful product.

Re: My 'Modern' during lockdown...

The DPF on my 2010 Tiguan was coming up as faulty. I had it flushed through under pressure. They inject a cleaner, then neutralise it. Then run the car for a while. It did the job, no more limp home mode. What is concerning is that the clouds of smoke coming out of the exhaust, after the treatment, ...

Re: Tin opener.

Three men were stranded on a desert island with no food apart from a box of tinned meat. They debate how to get into the tins. One, an engineer, proposes a machine made from palm branches and sharp stones. The second, a thermodynamics expert, recommends heating the tins on a fire until they rupture....

Re: Gasket material for Dyson vacuum

I’m not much of a Dyson fan. They perform well ,but for a ‘premium quality’ machine their reliability is quite poor...in our experience.

Re: Land of the Giants

It’s a tricky one this. We would love to drive a smaller, more environmentally friendly car...but we need the slightly higher driving position of a crossover type car to comfortably access and egress.
I’m finding it increasingly difficult to use my classic cars comfortably these days :cry:

Re: Hot starter motor

Hijacking this post slightly, my starter has always been prone to jamming once in a while. Traveller with 1275 engine and Ford 5 speed box.
