I've a Middlebridge brochure that shows the infill type. All I can think is that either the car's had a replacement screen - fitters used to have a habit of using 'universal' rubbers if they didn't have the correct item! Or else Reliant ran out of the broad-strip type? Haven't had a chance to try fi...
Well the car arrived with the narrow-strip type, although that may have been a replaced screen in the past. Nigel at QRG seemed pretty sure that the GTC and Middlebridge had the narrow strip too. But I must agree that most images on't Web show the 6 type! Aargh! I'll have a go at the seal-first meth...

I filed a gnat's off the tops of the threads and then turned and pushed it into the M/C body until the cylinder body caught the plastic and cut it to fit. Quite...
I've been rereading old Slices and seen a couple of letters about unleaded heads on Cologne engines, possibly identified by a D or E stamped or cast on. Nobody seemed to know if this was true or not in 2002, does anyone now?

Found the earth gremlin, a bit different from the usual dirty connectors. The earth wire coming from LHS to RHS is split into 2 ends, and I'd managed to connect them together and deprive the lights of their share.... all fixed now.
