Re: Body paint

Clarendon grey would have been GR6 paint code

Re: Sidevalve head removal issues. Help!

Did i once read on here to put 1 and 2 piston at bottom of stroke and feed in rope to fill cylinder ( use same amount of rope in each cylinder ) and turn crank to see if it will shift head ,can't see any dangers with this method but can't be held responsible for any mishaps. :oops:

Re: Seat straps

Thanks simmitc
Don't think i need to worry about excess weight just yet :lol: .I had an idea that there was a problem with the diaphragms in the past that were perishing quickly,may be just a senior moment. oh and my seats have wood under seat cushion so rather hard.

Seat straps

Hi all
Does anyone know if there is any advantage to using a seat diaphragm instead of the straps, apart from cost as the diaphragm is a lot cheaper than straps.
Thanks Ian
