Re: Who's had the Covid vaccine? Anyone going to refuse it?

Vaccination has been around a long time, I wonder if those that refuse this particular vaccine, have refused all previous ones that have helped prevent various ailments.

Re: 2021 National

With respect to those trying to make plans, unless there is the prospect of a full blown National rally, maybe they are a bit premature. There surely needs to be amenities, entertainment, trade stands and public boot sales going on to ensure a good turnout, and as implied, at this stage those things...

Mot or not the RAC would not cover it.
The RAC recovered our minor van quite a few years ago. I'll need to see if the Pick up is covered.
I’d be interested to know how you get on, covering the Pickup !

Re: Convertible rear springs - 5-leaf or 7-leaf?

I would suggest you do one modification at a time, and see what improvements you get after each. Start with new springs, Kevin’s idea sounds a plan.

Re: Steering Rack Gaitor

Further to the above ‘repair’ it has been known for complete new drive shaft rubber boots to be split, wrapped round the joint being attended to and superglued back together to save dismantling. ————- No I haven’t done it ! but superglue really works on rubber.

Re: Steering Rack Gaitor

Rubber components nowadays seem to give limited service, so maybe try the other ones.

Yes, it amazing how it passes through such a small needle. So far I haven’t had any adverse effects, maybe it’s not been activated yet. :o

Re: Who's had the Covid vaccine? Anyone going to refuse it?

As I understand it, this ‘herd immunity’ thing suggests that if most get vaccinated, the few that don’t, can’t effect the rest, or something like that.

Re: Two wires left in the engine compartment

If your former engine had a mechanical pump, that engine, in my opinion, would have come from an Austin minor van, or possibly a 950 Minor. I’m pretty sure I’m right in saying It’s the Austin 1098 engine version (or 950 Minor) that has the opening, covered by a plate, for a mechanical pump, whereas ...
