'A' post repair ? how structural ?

How about using the gutter rivet holes to inject (*desperately thinking of something liquid metal like, that might flow well enough yet set hard enough*) into the tubes? Maybe something like this?? https://www.google.com/search?q=evo+stik+serious+stuff+liquid+metal&client=safari&channel=iphone_bm&p...

You'll receive many opinions :D but I have always used CV joint grease. It's a very soft grease well loaded with Moly - but you know that. And a grease gun.

Workbench magnifier/light

I use one of these converted to LED - mine's an older version than the one here but I've had it at least 25 years. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/22W-Fluorescent-Daylight-Flexible-5-Magnifying-Lamp-Multi-Position-G-Clamp-New/191444155926?epid=2254370927&hash=item2c92f5fe16:g:r6MAAOSw9NdXqG3~ The big prob...

Workshop heater - recommendations

If it's for a couple of hours there's little point in trying to heat the air. An electric radiant heater would be the best fit.

Coil spring compressor

Anyone else had any problems? Probably everyone who has ever tried to do it :) . It isn't easy and requires great care - my first ever attempt resulted in three hook-type compressors skidding round to one side of the spring. The damper rod bent like a banana. After that I wired them in place. The o...

SS1 1600 Spark Plugs

Interestingly, to follow-up a little on this, I was in Halfords today (failing to buy wiper blades for the Yellow Peril) and I was having a general scout around, as one does :roll: , and I noticed that they only seemed to have Bosch plugs, and not a very big selection.

SS1 1600 Spark Plugs

Within the basic spec there can be variations like suppressed/not suppressed, socket fitting, loose or threaded cap, electrode material, copper-core electrode, electrode shape etc. The important part of the spec relating to heat range, thread form, and thread length stays the same.

Steering column

I have the correct die to clean up damaged threads. If anyone would like details so they can buy one of their own please pm me. Or if I remember to do so I can post details on the forum. Remembering is the difficult part.
