Mikey Bikey's Scimega

Shot peening is a process of "firing" hardened pellets at the gears to work-harden the surface. Lowers wear rates by making the surface more brittle whilst maintaining the toughness of the bulk of the metal.

ARB drop links and this radiator pipe...

Something to do with equal ARB movement up and down when cornering? I think I read it in Puhn's "How to make your car handle", can't be bothered to look it up though.

ARB drop links and this radiator pipe...

As I understand it (and correct me if I'm wrong), shouldn't the ARB arms sit horizontal when the suspension is in its normal position?

The "Mighty" SE6 - New Year, New Plans

Interesting...
When the fan is unpowered and windmilling (freewheeling) in the airflow, does it generate enough to light a lamp? Does anyone know?
Perhaps Demonbluedays will see unexpected lights before his eyes?

Tape control

If the button never tries to stay when you push it, then as Trevor says, the pawl might have broken off, or if there's a solenoid to hold the button in, it might be a blown transistor. Tried looking at the Dutch link above, but it only shows a small bit of the circuit diagram, so can't diagnose any ...

Springs... 2.5" 2.25" whats the difference

Yes Dennis, you guessed correctly - I had a pair of Spax springs just waiting to be used. Here's some background - not relevant, but perhaps interesting anyway; I also have AVO springs but these are lighter (275 lbs) and when I suggested using these on the back of the Sabre Six, with its longitudina...

Vertical link/stub axle nut and washer

Hope it works! Sounds to me like to ought to be some kind of "top hat" shaped washer, but the assembly diagram shows a flat washer. I wonder if case-hardening the steel washer would reduce distortion? Also, I'd be interested to learn whether torquing the nut up to the specified figure causes distort...

The Halfords indicator relays are electronic, but still use relay contacts to switch the indicators on and off (at least they were when I pulled one to bits a couple of years ago).

Late 6a carburettor

One way to re-flatten a carb face flat is to use grinding paste on an old mirror, as the glass is usually flat to begin with. Initial rubbing also shows up the high spots.
Just a suggestion, hope this helps.

Springs... 2.5" 2.25" whats the difference

Me too - machined the AVO collets down from 2.5" in order to fit the Spax 300 lb springs. Nice and snug now.
