  1. I seem to remember digging something like button out from the spot in disasembly. It wouldn't have been renovated before. Perhaps it was just in the slot. They might just get schutzed.
  2. I'm thinking the original may have been butyl.
  3. Greetings, So I'm putting a gt6 engine in my old 1300 mkiv. Long story boring... Does anyone know which look or combination should be used? Thanks Johno
  4. Evening all, What's the sealant smothered around the shims of a radius arm after fitting? Anyone? Johno
  5. Cheers that's where I was going if anything. Just the whole grease and brakes thing.
  6. I've heard replacement brake adjusters are made of monkey metal! So I've spent some time (arguably to much) to unseize my own original ones. So without wanting to sound sense were the little piston and the adjuster spigot ever lubricated with anything, or left completely dry. If so what? Regards Johno
  7. Evening all, So is there a correlation between short drive shafts and early car springs? I'm thinking about camber angles and imagining that early car springs don't swing. But are possibly shorter. Therefore if I use a later "swing" spring with short shafts I'll get more camber and potential tuck! Which nobody wants. Can anyone Shine a light on correct spring / shaft length combinations? Regards Johno
  8. reclining Gt6/ spitfire seats. Thanks for the leads.
  9. Who makes the best seat covers Cheers Johno
  10. Alan hi, I don't but I'll keep an eye on the post as I'm in exactly the same position. I think they're a cracking upgrade. Boy racer image be damned. Johno
  11. Can anyone rent me a hub puller ? Regards Johno
  12. Greetings all, I'm going to replace the bearings in my hubs whilst the car is stripped down. Is there anyone in the Bristol area that might loan or rent me a hub pulled for the purpose? Regards johno
  13. Evening all, I have seen this question begore, it is " does anyone have any experience of dura flex bushes? " I know people mentioned other sources and their reliability or not. However I'm asking about dura flex and any review on them. Not meaning to be rude just don't want to waste anyone's time. Many thanks Johno
  14. Greetings, I'm looking at the potential water trap in the lower rear wing beading, and considering what to fill the beading with before placing it on the wing joint. In order to fill any gaps and thus prevent water pooling. Anyone done this and able to recommend a product. Regards johno
  15. Hi all, I have contacted the local club to see if anyone has a powder blue or Wedgwood blue car that I could look at to choose between the colours. It appears Avon club don't and not all are attending meetings for obvious reasons. Does anyone have a car in either of these Colours reasonably close to Bristol so I can get a better idea of the colour on a big scale? any help muchly appreciated regards Johno
  16. Cheers Nick, I will give it a go.
  17. Afternoon all, So the next turn in my diff reno... The input flange needed a pulled to come off and although spotless now it really doesn't want to go back on! I've thought about heating the flange but am concerned about the new seal. Who's dealt with this before and how? Regards Johno
