Windscreens

ok I am sure that this has been asked before?

But what is the best sealant to use around fairly newish front windscreen rubbers that fit but not tight enough so ending up with a little puddle of water in the foot well when it rains all rather boring!

Thanks in advance for your ideas

Marcus :-) :D

Alternator Slip Ring Lucas ACR type

Thank you for all your advice. MY orginal probelm was an alternator that intemitantly worked. On opening it up I found that the bushes were worn and the slip ring was in poor order after 4 years of use and less than 20k miles this was not good. So I ordered up a repair kit from BB classics Read on t...

What Tools?

Hello Everyone,

we are heading to the South of France camping in a few weeks time in our Traveller and it looks like we will be covering 1,500 miles over the space of 2.5 weeks and we wondered what tools we should take with us?
Any other advice would be useful.
Many thanks

Wiggle on the back end!

My 1968 traveller Dorris has a strange wiggle on the back end you feel it when you pull away or slow down, the back end of the car goes side to side!

Any ideas ?
