Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

It's a Bosch random orbital but I have a 1/4 sheet domestic sander too. I use Abranet 120 and 80 grit abrasives.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Refitted the strut between the suspension towers and the anti-roll bar then started sanding. I rigged a rope to keep the vacuum hose clear.

I suppose it depends on the "currency" you have in mind, power, pounds or smiles per mile.😎

Tappet adjustment query

If the round tip of the moving DTIs arm is centred above the valve stem, then this is very well liked by an ex-steam loco and airframe fitter.

Hi Jim, no but Tony Seddon is there with his traction engine so maybe if the car is there tomorrow he could get the vin?
I don't think he comes on the web much these days though.

The Racy Red Bakery Truck.

The rack has developed a bit of play at the pinion/rack so I've obtained a spare and plan to replace/repair the original. I also picked up a spare instrument panel to replace my cracked, twisted, life-expired one.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

It's been a week of admin and jousting with bureaucracy but managed a good couple of days in the garage. I tentatively took the packing out from under the g/box mount, spied the alignment and it seems right. The prop shaft was fitted through the hole in the chassis and bolted up, it seems to sit cor...

To pinstripe or not to pinstripe

Hi all,
My 5a was cream with black pin-stripe and wore it well. Light colours suit stripes but dark don't, however, it's your car so please yourself and hang what others say😎

Got the engine/gearbox back in the chassis but missing the spacer under the g/box mount, the old one was plywood so I'll make a new one.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!
