hi guys,
got the filter - 2 nos from the spares man - Mr Bryan.

With all hi and lows the minor is back,, just managed to fix things along with the overhauling
with re-sleeving the bore to standard and all ( yes all re works) for the USHM3.

An happy moment for the entire family it got ready on march 30th 2016, just the previous evening on "MY BIG DAY"

Thanks for all the Smart experienced people back there who take care of all the queries globally.
i will definitely need some more support on the doors , suspensions etc etc...

here are some pics on my big day along with the great minor SVH.

Hello,
Also need cork sheet which i can use for making some gaskets which i may require in future..
i came across this website in the UK and not sure whether they will sell a sheet or two.

http://www.corkstore.co.uk/quietcork-un ... s-31-c.asp

Anyone can help me out in finding cork gasket ?

thanks.

Pradeep
Firstly well done to get the Moggy ready for the wedding, it looks very fine. Be sure that the problems you have had are not unique to you!!
Gaskets, I don't think I would use commercial cork on a car. Google it or try RAMS gaskets who make for vehicles etc and are suitably certified. As they say on their website cork comes in different particle size and densities etc. You need to be sure you are using a good quality product. Maybe you have someone nearer to home who can supply?
As for your on-going needs ESM (East Sussex Minors)are a good supplier and can be relied on. They offer original and pattern brake cylinders, always buy original! Shipping to India will not frighten them. Always try Bryan first, though, he will often have these sort of parts.

Thanks mr Colin for the info.
I did contact Mr Bryan by email,he is on leave and will be back after 5th of august. Mt parents are on a visit to the UK and thought of getting these when they return back.
Most of the important spares i have sourced either from the club or recommended suppliers.

thanks
