Re: bonnet

You’re offering a bargain compared to this wishful thinker ——— makes you wonder doesn’t it!

Measuring instruments

I’m slowly going through my tools with a view to thinning out. I’ll never use some of them again.

Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

I don’t know what’s put you off Chris, there’s a lot of interest in your work. If you do decide to stop, fair enough. There must be enough information gathered by now to be released in booklet form, with any future additions taking the form of supplements, if you do decide to carry on. A booklet rel...

Re: Traveller Stormforce All weather cover

They look like nice covers, I agree if the need is not great, good to leave for others, I bought one a few years back and it served me well, not sure if it’s the same make, a lot of covers seem to use similar sounding names.

Re: Austin Pick up 1972

My pickup is 1971 (Austin) and falls into the latter area of the chassis numbers you list. Looks like you’re Pickup started as a van then, I’m not sure of the precise date production stopped but vehicles are often registered at a later date. Good luck with the restoration, I bought my pickup when it...

Re: Silicone brake fluid

Thanks for all replies, I would normally clean it up but the position of the master cylinder makes this unrealistic, hence my query about the possible harm.

Re: Silicone brake fluid

From what I’ve read that does not ring true, also my experience of 20 or so years of use does not bear that out.
It’s Recommended that the system is clean to start with.

Silicone brake fluid

I have a question for any budding chemists here. After removing the plate covering the master cylinder, I noticed the Chassis leg below looked a bit wet. It’s covered in Waxoyl from years ago but it could be the wet appearance is caused by silicone fluid that may have found its way into the leg whil...

Re: Rear wheel cylinders

Well, I was having a general checking session, and on removing the nearside drum I thought the general area looked a bit damp. I deduced it was from a cylinder, so as good practice I bought a new one for each side. I am now wondering if my deduction was correct because during the renewal process I n...

Re: what oil and how many litres?

A good idea is to fill the filter with oil, that way the oil should start to circulate quicker. However in the time taken to build pressure I can't see the bearing surfaces being without a film of oil.

Re: Rear wheel cylinders

Just a follow up to conclude the thread, I jacked the rear up pretty high and pushed a quantity of fluid through the system, which ran clear. The pedal feels good now.
