Re: Bilt Hamber

I used to use International Yacht Paints 2 pack self etch primer as a rust eater but that has been discontinued on H&S grounds. I now use Fertan (250ml size) and it is good.

Re: Sikkening

I have a tin of Cuprinol Wood Preserver Clear product code: 5 010368 010264 it contains low aromatic solvents.
You are right that solvent based and water based wood preservers will not mix. You could end up with a gooey mess. :oops:

Re: 50s and 60s modifications ideas

If you want ideas for performance modifications look at old Car and Car Conversion magazines from the 1960s.

Re: 50s and 60s modifications ideas

Have a look in old magazines like Car Mechanics from the 1950s 1960s and you will get plenty of ideas of what modifications/alterations are or were available.

Re: Rubber crank seals for 1275 A+

The rubber seals for the 1275cc Midget are suitable for the 'A' Plus engine. The only difference to the sumps of the 1275cc Midget and 1275cc 'A' Plus engine is that the 1275cc 'A' Plus sump has a strengthening plate welded to the bottom of the sump and bolted to the bottom of the 1275cc 'A' Plus be...

Re: anti roll bar

Here are some anti-roll bar mount bushes - I would suggest that the bar is 3/4" outside diameter (cross section) and Ford derived. With the listing below you need to specify the size you require. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231307476554?fits=Car+Make%3AFord&epid=1842873251&hash=item35dafffe4a:g:SHoAA...

Re: engine breather 1275 engine

The gasket requirements depend upon the timing chain cover fitted. If you have the timing chain cover with the bulge covering the timing chain tensioner you will need the following gasket:- http://www.minispares.com/product/Classic/Engine/12G2625.aspx?10&ReturnUrl=/search/classic/timing%20chain%20co...
