    Heater box teardown and rebuild

    Oh that Alex! I accidentally bumped into her Youtube channel last week. I liked her "Roveralls", I wouldn't buy them second hand from her mind!! Maybe you could message her there.

    Oily, dirty, happy

    Sorry to hijack your Dirt thread Mick. Remember that lovely clean driver's seat yesterday? I wish I had video'd this. This one was a wee bit worse than the others, so I upped the dosage of ingredients and one hour soaking time. Bloody filthy.

    Smashing Mick. I'm doing the interior today, second application. I was watching a guy in the States and picked up a few tips. 20 squirts of a well known upholstery stain remover, one cap full pf the same brand carpet shampoo, half cap full of green multi purpose disinfectant, into a good spray...

    Carb Removal TC

    No warping or welding repairs, Remarkably good nick. My banana comment was in reply to Vern. Yes I thought about that sdibbers. If you look at the above photo, the gaskets in worst shape were 1 & 4, where there are only two bolts, I only have basic engineering, but it was always going to blow...

    Carb Removal TC

    I was just about to get to that Vern, I have a question about the gaskets. Aren't the decks being pulled out of shape by that gasket arrangement? I'm not surprised they go Banana shaped. I was about to ask if an annealed copper gasket would be better suited along the entire deck? Those little...

    Carb Removal TC

    I got the exhaust manifold off today, one of the copper gaskets was pretty bad. After removal I noticed that the deck was a bit "burry" and bumpy along the edges, and around the drill holes and not entirely flat, not badly, but enough to raise an eyebrow. Just a little something to look out for...

    Carb Removal TC

    Fortunatley then I took care, I undid the bolts slowly, and let it dribble out, and I dried around quickly, there was very little wet.. AND one of the coolant channels was dry, so maybe a problem there!

    Carb Removal TC

    I moved a couple of pipes, and with the exception of the throttle cable, choke cable and servo pipe, I was able to take the manifold off to get at the gaskets...gasket. All the nuts were no more than finger tight, I got to them with a small ratchet spanner and me fingers. Put a basin underneath...

    That's a pain Peter. No way to "hack" the tool? Could you fashion an adapter?

    Thanks S +£20 for postage to Ireland. I'm afraid. And thanks for the reminder about the digitised one. I must sort that tonight. Been working on it solid since I got it, I need to start enjoying it too.

    Carb Removal TC

    I'm sorry if this is already posted, I can't find it. and I don't have a manual. I'm trying to get my carbs off, to get to the manifold and exhaust gaskets which need replacing. and further inspection. Is there a procedure? Strange that the nuts don't clear the carbs. and I have one missing...

    overriders for beginners

    Sorry to stick my nose in. Mick, don't you have a 2000 style bumper? It has the "overriders" around the number plate and grill-bar.. Are you going for another set? It will look pretty cluttered at the front with all that "furniture"...

    I'm very glad you liked iit. Don't forget the "blow out" after every adjustment.. That suction tool is called a "Uni-Sym", you might get a cheapie on ebay or amazon. Oh yes carb oil. I think he says something about that! SU recommend use of the correct grade carb oil, and filled to the proper...

    Grill paint

    Try the above method for the silver. Green Squidgee and Hammerite Silver. Apply small amount of paint to sponge and dab it on. None (or very little) gets on the black plastic. Easy. Cheers Mick. I meant to ask you, have you discovered the wonders of the Kickdown on your Auto yet? I loved...

    Grill paint

    That's exactly where I am today. All into the bath with lots of domestic cleaner. Screws and washers into a pot of Kero, for a stiif toothbrushing later. I have seen a couple of American "products" recently that will bring up the Black, so I'm not going to paint that. For the Silver trim. I used...

    Disconnect the Clock

    Who said anything about being stored? It's being worked on every day. Inside, outside, underenath and under the bonnet. So the consensus is to disconnect/reconnect the battery constantly, rather than disconnect an annoying clock? And what if I don't want the clock whilst driving? I don't care...
