  1. Ok thanks Richard, most unusual to find LH & RH drive options included how very far sighted! I'll have another check later David
  2. Richard, you are a complete star, that is exactly what I was looking for! I suspected as much that in the LHD to RHD conversion, the captive nut for the upper stay is missing and I will need to add it; fortunately at this stage of the rebuild that is not a problem. I'll come back to you if I have any follow up. Again many thanks Best Regards David
  3. Thank you both; I've done the hacksaw mod and just awaiting some new bolts, I might have a look at whether the 5/16" bolt is a viable option Best Regards David
  4. I tried this in an old thread, but I think it got lost in the background noise. I have 2 questions; the clamp bolt through the coupling clamp is listed as 5/16" x 1 5/8" which I'm pretty sure is not correct, my old bolt is 1/4" x 1 3/16" ; which is correct, and do you use an HT bolt for this? (maybe I should drill out the clamp to 5/16"? ) Second question is does anyone have pics of the upper steering column (in car) showing the fitting of the various brackets and what they connect to, I've tried with my pre-resto photos and workshop manual but I'm flummoxed Many thanks David
  5. you painted it with a roller? that's very impressive
  6. Some really useful help on this thread, thank you all. I have 2 questions; the clamp bolt through the coupling clamp is listed as 5/16" x 1 5/8" which I'm pretty sure is not correct, my old bolt is 1/4" x 1 3/16" ; which is correct, and do you use an HT bolt for this? (maybe I should drill out the clamp to 5/16"? ) Second question is does anyone have pics of the upper steering column (in car) showing the fitting of the various brackets and what they connect to, I've tried with my pre-resto photos and workshop manual but I'm flummoxed Many thanks David
  7. Stuart, what grade/colour of scotch do you use for this? Regards David
  8. Thanks Rich, so I guess the 4a just blanked this hole on top of the tank? David
  9. and the first question re the tank vent?
  10. 2 easy questions on the petrol tank if anyone can help pse. Photo 1 of the top of the fuel tank; the 5/8" unf bolt hole should I believe have a banjo bolt and vent pipe, is that correct for a 4A? I can't remember what I took off the tank 2 years ago, but I can't that fitting, can they be got second hand (not new I believe) Photo 2 shows the inner rim of the fuel filler, the PO has had a go at removing the seal in the base (it looks suspiciously like asbestos??), can that seal be replaced? Many thanks David
  11. working through the fun and games that is door gapping; At the leading edge of the door at the A post, is the position of the lip which takes the door seal about right or should it be angled further inside the cockpit? Any comparative photos appreciated Many thanks David
