Re: Summer camping

Yeh I agree Bob but what's more entertaining than watching a couple put up a new tent when he won't just read the instructions and she is just waiting for him to mess up and ask for help. Best laughs you can have for free.😁

Re: Changing odometer reading

But you can still have a twiddle, well, on the 95 plate one that I had you could, didn't say it was cable driven, it's a case of opening the gears apart and rotating to where you want but it's not easy.

Re: Changing odometer reading

I just swapped the head with one I found that was very near, others have stated ( years ago) that remove the entire gauge cluster, remove the Speedo via the mounting screws, get a thin narrow blade/screwdriver and create a gap between the rotating discs to space the peg from the next disc/gear, cont...

Re: Where has it gone ?

Too late bud, lock down in our house means something different to the government's intended meaning, I'm seaking legal advice if I can get this padlock undone that's fastening me to the cooker. She's pulling rank as her employer says she's a very special worker, I think that means she puts her life ...

Re: Exhaust manifold is off! YAY!

I just get a large piece from a scrap yard but never tried to buy new, I would imagine it will be available from the car build/ tuning web sites, search heat shield or similar.

You don't need a bath, a bucket will do to catch it.😉.

Re: Front anti roll bar

Yes they are available as they are a service part. They anchor the anti rollbar to the body, but must be flexible whilst anchoring to allow for the twist in the anti rollbar, Careful when undoing the bolts as they can sheer off, slow even pressure usually gets em but please be warned as they are int...

Re: Archive Film

The family had a great half day out on the tywyn railway some years ago and it does still look like the movie, if the weather is good it's a lovely run up the valley, you can get off at each station and jump back on again. Not sure the 3 rd class would be much fun as it would probably be on the roof...

Re: Rocker cover gasket replacement

No, the tubes go round each bolt and through the gasket, they act as a spacer so you have something to torque the bolts against without crushing the gasket/cover to the head. The bolts also have a mushroom rubber washer on top also to each bolt top to cover external.

Re: Rocker cover gasket replacement

Just a little heads up, the tubes that go through the gasket can get deformed with previous overtightening etc, they tend to crush in length or even lean over. Check they are all ok before refitting or your new gasket may leak. Cannot remember the torque setting but it's not much. I've lightly filed...
