Another use for solder

Last night in the 'social centre' the discussion turned to gear backlash and methods of measuring it. A former mechanic said that he used to do it by sticking a piece of solder wire between the teeth and turning the gears. The solder pushed the teeth apart and then got squashed between them. Turning...

6 or 8 interior mirror

The silvering on my GTC's interior mirror is coming off, does anyone have a surplus one please? It's pretty much the same as on the 6a if that helps.

Block drain plugs

Since it's antifreeze time I've been trying to get the drain plugs out of the GTC motor. The RH one came out reasonably easily but the LH one is well stuck! It has a hex socket head for an Allen key but none of mine fit very well. Does anyone know what size I need? Have a feeling it may not be stand...

'pinned' topics gone / missing

Maybe a sticky at the top of each section redirecting to the FAQs so mods aren't bombarded with 'where are' requests?

The FAQ section itself looks fine to me, easy just to search for what your problem is.

Just one more if I may - how would a non-member contact the admin? I've been looking for about 15 minutes and I can't find contact details ot...

Asking about axles

Interesting replies! I have a surplus axle lying about. Can't quite remember where it came from but I might have a play with it to see how hard it can be before I start on the GTC!

Asking about axles

I've been looking through some old 'Slices; and I noticed a couple of items by the late great Robin Rew. In the first he says that he has "fitted a few 3.07:1 ratio axles into overdrive SE5/5a's as they will pull this ratio quite easily..... but that gearing is too tall for the 6 series" and I'm puz...

SE8 Axle noise query

Ian
Are you still getting on OK with the 3.31 axle? Just asking as I'm thinking about whether to replace or have rebuilt the seized unit in my GTC!
