I have managed to get some from ESM.
Thanks for your kind offer Phil.
Can you measure them up before you fit them for future reference in case anyone is stuck in future :D

Re: Traveller rear door check plate

I was hoping you understood my method in the description, because it will be difficult to get any photo's now until after winter when the car comes out of hibernation. But what I did was use the left hand tie bar on the right hand door and vice versa, if you do that when the door is fully open the l...

Re: Tappet chest engine breather for 1098

Hi Mike

I reckon the cost of my time and materials should be covered by £20 plus any postage.
I need to keep most of my free time spare to continue work on my model Corliss mill engine, so don't want to be inundated with other stuff.

Re: Traveller rear door check plate

I swapped mine over from left to right and replaced the dome head with a spring loaded cap head screw. I have a little knurled brass know on the top of each one which you have to lift the screw up with before the door will close. The original idea just seemed rubbish to me as the doors would never s...

If you get totally stuck and can provide me with a dimensioned sketch, I could make some for you for a few beer vouchers.

Re: Tappet chest engine breather for 1098

If anyone does end up buying one, I can modify these so they can be dismantled and cleaned out for a very fair price.
I did my own and it was in a right old mess inside when I opened it up.

Re: Spare tyre/wheel-does anyone not carry one?

When I bought my Skoda Yeti, I insisted on it having a spare wheel kit fitted or I would buy elsewhwere. They relented and fitted it FOC.

I was told the reason new cars don't have them is to save weight, apparently it is all to do with the CO2 emissions rating applied to the car.

Re: Timing cover leak solution?

I made a stiffener out of 1/4" thick aluminium to go around the bottom portion of the timing cover when I rebuilt my engine recently. Not sure if it really needs one but I have the facilites and I enjoy making stuff. I think you can buy these online. I dont have any oil leaks front or back on this e...

Re: Electric Cars

I fear it wont be just forecourts that disappear, it will be the whole infrastructure including the refineries and transport network etc.
It will be the fuel itself that vanishes, not the places where you buy it.

The same thing is happening in the steam preservation world with coal supplies.

Re: Cross-member bolts. (and... Brake Master Cylinder)

I think you may well be right about the bottom lug on the clutch pedal being in the wrong position Looking at your photos of the original pedal when it was in the car, the relay shaft looks to be in a much better position. The only difference is the new pedal that could be causing this issue. Have y...

Re: Gearbox to chassis earth strap bolt

Assuming your earth strap is connected to one of the crossmember bolts and is just spinning a not tightening up, you will have a problem with the captive nut no longer being captive. Depending on which side of the car you are looking at will determine how difficult it is to fix, if it is a UK right ...

Re: Water temp gauge

I totally agree, the actual temperature indicated is not that relevant, but it will tell you if it differs from its usual normal when driving. I actually fitted an electronic stabiliser when I did the dashboard mods on my car. That's how I knew about the 10V bit. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Semicondu...

Re: Water temp gauge

The voltage stabiliser gives a nominal 10V supply, so if running on 12V you might get higher readings.
