Re: Fuel Leak

It has been knurled at the end,to stop it coming loose.I have removed them.using a pair of pliers.Open the pliers and with one jaw over the end of the pin and the other on the metal where it is entered ,squeeze the pliers.

Do it over a piece of cloth,so you don't loose it.

Re: Seized brakes advice sought

I managed to release the drums by pouring a kettle of boiling water over them , I think the hot water loosened up the gunge inside the drum also.

Re: Exhaust stud stripped - removal ideas

I removed a stud by tapping the stud lightly and rapidly ,with a small hammer, whilst my assistant tried to undo the stud with a ring spanner,You get the same effect with garage air tools,
