  1. I thanks for helping. I got the housing unbolted without damaging the capaillary. The parecine is a good idea regards
  2. On mt TR3a it's stuck in the housing. Any tips how to get it out in one piece? regards Bob
  3. Hi Would the piping be in the body colour as in this car or would it normally be white?

  5. Hi I just bought a Judson S/C to fit my TR4a. It will need a rebuild. Anyone have any experiance? Als I am looking for a good quality scan of the original installation instruction. regards Boudewijn
