  1. Thanks for the advice gents, waiting for the rain to stop and I'll be out there swearing.
  2. Is it advisable to use jointing paste on fuel lines?. I will be replacing flexible hose to MU and concerned about possible problems if any paste should get into MU or injectors
  3. Hi all, Just checked rubber fuel hose rimmers cat no 214890, possibly 25yrs old and it feels and looks like it needs replacing. The S/S braided is slightly more expensive so is that better ? Having read about damage that ethanol can do is there something better I can use. Mick
  4. Having done a few similar projects in the past, I would ask the local building control office. They will tell you what needs to be done and what materials are suitable. As previously mentioned it could be very costly if you get it wrong.
  5. Last year when I picked the car up from voluntary MOT, the Overdrive switch was in the on position and the car had been reversed into parking bay. The switch may have been accidentally knocked or used as lights/indicator. Would the inhibitor switch prevent damage, although I would rather not risk it.I really don't want to give a toolbox talk on the workings of a TR when I take it this year, and was thinking if it is possible to pull wires on relay switch, I have two red, a white and green, can anyone advise if this is possible and what wires to pull. Any advice greatfuly received
  6. It's what they're good at, They once sent me a tax bill for £00.00
  7. He don't like being called that, you're be getting a visit from the boy's with the special perfume.
  8. Get yourself a bag of cold lay macadam from wickes about £8.00. Warm the area as you fill it you will get better adhesion

    New tyres

    I will be changing my aged tyres from 195 to 165, in the hope that it will be easier to steer at lower speed. Would it be necessary to make any changes to camber, toe in/out etc. I won't be doing this myself but it would be good to know.
  10. We have overcome problems in the past (ie- when on the many occasions the French have blockaded the Calais docks) I'm sure we will overcome this
  11. Would it be possible to take the weight by the head, lift off the floor 10mm so that the weight of the block can work in your favour. Might be worth temporarily replacing the studs loosely so you can keep control of the block. ps I'm not a mechanic and might be talking a load of s*it
  12. Hi Richard, I changed my radiator about 10 years ago (long story). Have the old one in the garage, as far as I know nothing wrong with it. Mine is a 72 cp model which is as far as I am aware is the correct one. I am in Bletchley and your welcome to it for a small donation to help the heroes. Not to clever on PM contact but I'm sure that a meeting can be arranged. Mick
  13. Black is black I want my baby back, it's grey it's grey since she went away ooh ooh,what can I do for I am feelin blue Los Braves (1968)
