    v8 still not right

    chris_v888, From the symptoms you have described particularly the popping in the carburettor and the lack of power it would seem that the some of the lobes on the camshaft have worn away. As symes has alluded to, the rear lobes are particularly prone to this. You need to follow his good...

    Bodywork - water leaks

    Guten Abend ReinhardP, Open ended as Colin has stated 3/4" A/F . However, as he has also said they round off easily. You cannot get a socket on as I recall. My way is better if you do it with care. Get the nuts first and you will be able to check the size. Viel Spaß, Alanj.

    Bodywork - water leaks

    Guten Tag ReinhardP, Presumably you mean the wiper wheel box nuts which can be very difficult to remove! Order two good used nuts, then take your Dremel and with care, grind off the old nuts having first protected the wheelbox threads. Drastic aber ausgezeichnet. Alanj.

    Heater Unit Panel

    Guten Morgen Stefan, The plastic cowl that you refer to is in fact a fibreglass chopped strand mat. It is very important that it is refitted because it acts as a heat insulating pad and helps as a sound deadening insulator. You could make one of those too! Viel Spaß, Alanj.

    My 3500s project - future daily drive

    Harvey was referring to brass nuts that are approximately 25 mm deep for extra security, with more than double the number of threads in contact with the studs. It is hard to tell from the photograph whether the ones you have fitted fit that criteria. Hope you are tightening the nuts to no...
