Re: Split Pin? Rear Shocks

I think you might find the holes are present, but disguised!
Unless the stud is part of an aftermarket repair which wasn't drilled.

Re: Brake fluid theory

Must admit when I rebuilt my braking system I was planning on using silicone but kept hearing negative things about it, but used it anyway! as I thought well it doesn't absorb moisture, is non corrosive on paintwork and it won't need flushing every couple of years. Not had any problems with it, bled...

If it's 'only' heated to 100c surely only the water content will vapourise?

Re: Laygear advice ?

I'd say your laygear and selectors look fit for further service unlike an elderly vauxhall box I used to have. I guess through wear the needle's escaped from their correct positions and we're going round with the teeth of all gears! The driving effect was quite 'different' to say the least, the box ...

Re: realigning the doors

When I fitted my doors/seals I discovered there are 2 types of seal and one is a lot softer than the other. First seal I fitted was just 'too much' even after realigning the seal flange.
Second seal I fitted was so much better, almost acceptable!
Although I can't remember where I got them from!

Re: Coil mounting bracket

Looks like it would give the coil more support but I don't think it's an original fitment.

Re: Electric radiator fan

Yes temp sensor fitted in top hose and adjustable controller fitted with override switch fitted under dash with indicator light so I can see when it is on.
Although as it uses quite a bit of current you can see the deflection on ammeter!
Just make it out in my photo.

Re: Electric radiator fan

I fitted a Kenlowe fan behind the grill and in front of the rad as I found there wasn't a great deal of room behind it. Don't think Kenlowe are around anymore but the one I have measures 10 inches diameter, quite a tight squeeze to fit, even had to grind a bit off the bonnet catch! Does the job ok, ...

Re: Difference of opinion

At least your using 'proper' mortar! I pointed our 50m new patio that I laid with one of these brush in resin type products. Good make and not cheap. About 2 years later I scraped and swept it all out as it was absolutely useless. Repointed it (3:1)! and it's been fine ever since. I think I was draw...

Not got a traveller but would it be an idea to 'sleeve' the holes so the water doesn't get soaked into the grain?

Just had a look at their website and see they are not listed again.
