  1. A picture saves a thousand words, Little Grasshopper. But only if the picture includes the whole subject! But don't take the steering wheel off to show how you did it! Me, I'd have bolted the wheel to a spare column, and held that in the vice! JOhn
  2. DVD3500, So THAT'S where Project Binky got the name from! http://img.retro-rides.org/i/v/metalshapes/8f91f6521863.jpg Is this a new restriction? I get a a message that says only picture with URLs are allowed. Random Test Pic: That works (I've given up, honest! Smoking sent me me white-haired) So what's with the "URLs only"? Can't I copy a pic off Google, but do so from my hard disk?
  3. I get suggestive messages from Amazon!! But if this kit is as long and stiff as it seems than perhaps it is worthwhile.

    Exhaust GT6 mk3

    I very much agree, Joanna, Revolutions are the Ones. Or dare I offer Only caveat is that the Triumph PCD is rather small, and the modern incarnation of Revs has a larger central hole, so less 'meat' in the hub around the stud holes. Old stock wheels may be best. John

  6. NEVER click a link you don't trust. But would reading a PM on here, even from a scammer, have any risk? JOhn
  7. There must be a mould somewhere. Mark is on Facebook, would he know who owns it? JOhn

    "Twitchy bums"? I know of the predelictions of our Public Schools, and have heard of those in our Naval services, but in the Army? Surely not? JOhn
  9. O. M.G. Now, we have "Marvellous Mystery Olive OIl"! But the idea, and the successful execution of the project, makes me think of getting an old pressure cooker, to ensure matrimonial harmony. Lots, on eBay! Then I could put, well, anything in it! John
  10. Yes! Work it to and fro! If at any time the bolt starts to squeal, STOP! It may be about to seize and break! Reverse, oil again, wait, try again. John PS Pressure cooker, good idea! Did you cook in some oil?
  11. Wow! And I thought SofS was the only racing Vitesse left in the UK! Does anyone know the owner? PS I've found him! Geoff Mackrill. Anyone know him? John
  12. WD40 is USELESS as a penetrant. As a product it's as overhyped as the American's "Marvel Mystery Oil"!! "Coke" is just ridiculous! Ive been impressed with "Innotec Deblock Oil XS". To try and keep anything soaking the part is a good idea, or else, frequent (every hour?) little squirts. John

    Noise camera's

    Pete Lewis, a "quick test in the pits" it is not! See the Blue Book Section J, p.153. where the conditions are defined in extensive detail. John

    When I had "Wheel barrow" exhausts on Silverback, one scrutineer found it too loud, on one side! I offered to only circulate the track in that direction but that got tyhe respect it deserved, and I was given a caution - "correct before next time". JOhn
  15. The amount that a spring washer is compressed must be a long, long way from the yield point!
  16. Certainly, the young are less likely to be severely ill, but there is wide variation. Tenagers, without 'vulnerabilities' have died. More important is that infected youngsters can pass it on the parents grandparents etc, who by now will have domishong immunity ,unless they are 'boosted'. The ideal is 'herd immunity' but the big is now so infective that requires 90%+ to be immune. So, get vaccinated? John
  17. "Look, and you shall find" Well done! JOhn
  18. I've been giving booster AND flu jabs at same time, different arms, natch! Lots keen on the idea, saves another trip. But our project to hold Vax clinic in a bus at the Uni fell flat. In two days we did almost, not quite, forty people!! We wanted the Freshers, many of whom will only have had one jab, but it seems that The Rules prevent the Uni asking them how many they have had! Madness, when they are just moving into a new community! We continue to hold clinics at Uni, although that as asked for their brand new Health Campus building back, so we can't use it anymore. They wanted to teach people in it, or some such nonsense! John
  19. Might be more useful if you explianed what it was you needed steadying. John

    Engine mounts

    Poor quality rubber in mounts has been a bane. Rear gearbox mounts in particular.
  21. Hang on Trevver, Show us a pic! Flywheel teeth are bevelled to aid engagement with the starter pinion. JOhn

    So satisfying

    I was at medical school with one who became Dr.Bastard. No messing about, no "B'tard", no Barsteward, just Bastard pure and simple. Rather posh, and a good doctor too! John
  23. Mathew, Yes I did! I got mush advice, from 'hit it harder', to 'weld a pull hammer onto it'. But the best advice (thank you, Nick Jones!) was to look inside the hole in the flywheel hub, that takes the spigot of the Torque converter, that is about half an inch in diameter. There is another bore at the base of that hole, threaded to take a 5/16 bolt, that screwed in will push off the flywheel from the crank shaft. BUT, tha hole so deep that a 3" bolt with 2" of thread is needed! Well lubricated, I used copperease on the jacking bolt, the fly wheel came off easily. It's not what you know, it's the way you hand it out. I owe Nick a drink! John PS Andy Flexney? He's not on here under that name. Please point him to this thread? J.
