Re: Which hoses to buy?

I wrap PTFE plumbing tape around some connections then push on the hose as some castings are not very smooth.
This always works for me if the hoses are in good condition.

Re: Timing chain replacement

Fitted duplex chain, I had to shim crank gear a small amount but no real problems.
Its a good quality kit and happy with result.
Thanks for advice.

Timing chain replacement

I have a Series 2 803cc Minor and about to change the timing chain, Any advice would be appreciated.
Should I check the cam and crankshaft gears, do they tend to wear?
I see that ESM sell duplex kits are these suitable for the 803cc engine and are they a better replacement?

Thanks Chris
