correct colour (code) for wire wheels

Every motorcycle I've restored has had powder coated rims, but never spokes....as Phil says, they flex. Infact, they need to flex to maintain stability. And, I can vouch for the fact (as I obtained one with powder coated spokes) that the powder coating indeed peeled off!

Nesscliff, Shrops

Is that a ce in the background? I've got fond memories of mine, it's what the jaguar xj6 pillarless was a copy of.

SE6a USM 99T

I have wondered the same Adam. Further, I wondered whether increased fuel flow from an electric pump has been a reason for a perceived rise in carburettor inlet leakages? I can see the benefits to competition guys in increasing fuel flow, but unless modern electric pumps have better internal working...

Identifying dodgy stuff in overdrive filter

To me, that looks like the frayed inside edge of gasket.....might be wrong. Some of the gearbox gears are close to the gaskets so it might have come off following a rebuild. Looks reasonably clean other than that. Metallic sludge is just a bit of gear wear.....remember that the overdrive has filters...

Yeah, another Rewpot! I wonder how many of us are still using them?

Is it just me, or is the suspension riding high at the front?

Steering wheel delamination

I saw a guy on one of the landrover forums fix his defender wheel with the same problem. He injected a runny epoxy with a syringe through the foam to the solid wheel. I don't know if it then felt any different.....I have just learned to live with a squidgy wheel on my defender!

electric fan

I'm always up for a puzzle and as Jim said, the otter switch is after the relay, then perhaps it was there that a circuit was wrongly made? I can find three different basic types of otter switch in use...the bi metallic strip, the brass/copper head and the later solid state type. I don't know if the...

electric fan

It would if you have the surge like my tractor. If it happens every time you start up, try disconnecting the starter power and then turn the key. If the fan doesn't come on, then it's the surge of the starter powering up causing the problem.

6a turns over, fires up and stops when key is let go

I had this happen to me on another vehicle.....turned out to be a loose connection somewhere, the ignition got its feed from the starter motor circuit when starting and as soon as the key was back to normal on mode, the circuit disconnected.

electric fan

Can't see how alloy rims are gonna cure the problem! 🙄
But one of my tractors often surges through a couple of relays on startup....it might be that if you have a relay in the fan circuit?

SE8 splitting overdrive from gearbox

I think I've said it before....other than bearing traders, if you can find a local agricultural engineering company, they normally have nearly every bearing size (metric, imperial, metric to imperial) in stock. The last thing a farmer wants is for his silage cutter to go down at the wrong window, he...

exhaust clamps

I always use mikalor.....beauty being that they can be reused when setting up a vehicle. For instance, my 6a having been completely rebuilt is now being sanded down for paint....I have already taken the exhausts off twice whilst tweaking and once I get to final finishing prior to spraying, they will...
