Re: 2 door side glass in rear removal.

I recently did mine & putting the rubber on the glass & then the assy to the body worked great. The best lube I found for fitting all the rubbers to body was hellerine oil, sold for electricians to run cables through conduit.

Re: Brake Pedal recessing

Worth trying another bleed, but it sounds like the master cylinder needs replacing to me.

Re: Edd's 1969 2 door. UHU62H

It's a pity you don't know someone with a nice dry garage where you could store it for a while until you have the time/money/enthusiasm to carry on with it. It's always much harder to justify purchasing another one at a later date than it is to eventually finish one you already own ( I know from bit...

Re: Remote brake reservoir

By gravity bleeding, do you mean once the new rear cylinders are fitted just open a bleed nipple (with a pipe going into a jar of brake fluid obviously) and let the fluid run through to eventually bleed itself of air?

Re: Remote brake reservoir

Excellent, no need to lift the flooring again then to touch the master cylinder. If I ever have to replace the master cylinder I'll probably do away with the remote reservoir, but I'll keep it until then. One more daft master cylinder related question if I may: When I was checking the fluid levels t...

Re: Oil for axle

It's funny you say that. I was at Newark autojumble yesterday & a stall there was selling Castrol classic EP90 so I bought some of that to refill with instead of the EP80/90.

Remote brake reservoir

Hi all. In the next few days I'll need to bleed my brakes. A previous owner has fitted a remote brake fluid reservoir under the bonnet. Obviously I don't have any instructions for this or even know what brand it is, when I bleed the brakes do I ignore the master cylinder now & just keep the remote r...

Re: Slight axle leak. Advice please.

Found them, I was looking on the outside of the hubs, didn't realise they were on the back :roll: .
They were blocked up, all clear now.

Re: Slight axle leak. Advice please.

I've had a look but haven't found them yet, I'll have another look this morning. I've checked & cleaned the main breather on the diff housing.

Oil for axle

Hi.
Is it acceptable to use EP80/90 GL5 oil in the rear axle instead of the EP90 that's recommended in the manual?
I have plenty of 80/90 to hand but I'm struggling to get EP 90 locally, will the thinner oil make it more likely to leak?
Thanks.
Neil.

Scuttle panels (interior trim)

Hi all. I recently bought new front scuttle panels (the interior trim panels by your feet in the footwells), they have a flap of material loose along the edge that meets the door, is this to wrap around the edge of the door frame & the door draught excluder put back in place over the top to hold the...

Re: Slight axle leak. Advice please.

Confused now :-? . I've bought new paper gaskets & O-rings to cure my weep at the hub flange, but I was talking to a friend tonight & he said that I'd definitely need to change the main seals too as if they weren't leaking there'd be no oil getting past to leak through the paper gasket. Is he right?...

Re: Slight axle leak. Advice please.

I'm pretty sure it's only leaking as I've disturbed the paper gasket whilst removing the drum as it didn't seem to leak before but to be on the safe side I think I'll get a new paper gasket & o-ring and change them both before I put the car on the road.

There's one countersunk screw. It's still tight.
