Re: Big bore exhaust

The first thing to check is to make sure the manifold outlet matches the 'bell' on the down pipe. I used a similar manifold and found that it was smaller than the sports system, I cut the welded adapter off and re-shaped the end of the pipe to fit the manifold.

Re: Wedding Present Restoration

That's Photobucket for you, not happy with the revenue they were getting they decided to block accounts unless you paid a ridiculous amount to link pictures to forums. I doubt they will survive for very long and all that storage will be gone. I copied everything I had on there over to Imgur which se...

Re: Oil pick up pipe basket securing bolts

I fitted the Mini Spares centre strap to my Mini engine. After getting the bearing cap machined down there was still enough groove left for the thrust tang.

Re: Caterpillar

It's amazing what a slightly wild garden with a variety of flowers and a pond attracts. Make your own micro ecosystem and sit back to watch. Sometimes quite scary as well, like the time a female sparrow hawk took a wood pigeon off the garage roof and crash landed right in front of the wife :o

Sounds like a humming bird hawk moth, we had one sipping from a lavender plant early in the summer - in the Northwest of England :) I took a short video, I'll see if I can post it.

Re: A little shocked

Compared with other cars I think most panels are pretty reasonable, some even cheap. But when you look at the number of them you need (floor edge/individual sill panels) then the cost escalates rather quickly - as I have found out collecting everything to do my traveller. The bonus, of course, is th...
