Another use for solder

It's definitely a good idea, however, strictly speaking it's not quite the same as plastiguage. This works in a different way - it comes in the form of a fine plastic rod, which is available in a number of different, very precisely calibrated, sizes. If you want to measure, for example, a bearing cl...

Exhaust manifolds

Cheesman used to make them for Robin Rew so they might be worth trying Yes they did - I have Cheesman exhausts (bought from Robin Rew) on the mulberry car (Se6a). A few years after buying the pipes, I decided to replace the manifolds, so as Robin had retired by then, I bought those direct from Chee...

Thanks Erik. 247 was Thomas Touw's car, any news of him as his e-mail doesn't work any more ? 414 the reg no was a typing error, actually 72-32-ZP, which exists or existed at least in 1984. Strangely, I have a note that it is the same car as 94-88-DG but I don't know why. 445 as you say, very well ...

Brilliant.
Looks like Ken Tape's old car which is listed but I didn't have its new registration.
Chassis 5099
Ken Tape's *second* car presumably? As I believe I'm right in saying his first car was stolen and never recovered?

This car belongs to a member of the Dutch club.
Good news, thanks Erik :) It's a very nice car, and good to see it being used. Unfortunately the owner wasn't with the car when I saw it, though that's quite understandable, as there's so much to see at the Revival! :D

Pitted piston

How badly rusted is the bore? Have you considered re-boring? As it looks as though you may need pistons anyway, then perhaps that might be worth considering, especially if the rest of the engine is in 34,000 mile condition, as your other post suggested?

Pitted piston

Presumably this is from the lean burn 1.6 cvh with the corroded bore?

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

That reminds me I have this Q reg car on file, wonder why it isn't in the list ... It may be on the list, under it's old Coupe Chassis no/Reg no. Now though, it is presumably registered with the VIN and Q-plate relating to the Westfield , on which the Coupe is just a replacement body, so has no sep...

Which oil for LH overdrive gearbox?

Yes I'd agree, I've always used GL4 as I understood GL5 was bad for "yellow metal" parts as Nigel says.

Which oil for LH overdrive gearbox?

Certainly I've always used EP80 as that's what it says in the official workshop manual, which is the definitive answer as far as I'm concerned :)

Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

The difference in the pipe union threads and the need to insulate the pipe has already been mentioned here - might be worth a look :)

Don't know the significance of it, I'm afraid. Tony is more local than I am so I'll test his knowledge!
