we have starting using the hobby weld oxy/acetylene bottles after using BOC has become more difficult than it was back in the day. available from the local service station.
the creme brulee's are looking good again..
gutted to hear this big fella. its pretty much the worst news someone can have. its really hard on your loved ones and people close to you too. it completely knocks the shit out of you and those around you when you get the diagnosis, but you will build yourself back up.
keep that positive...
best to ring the manufacturer.
ive always used a moly grease for cv joints, and the general purpose traditional bearing grease for packing bearings and UJs.
ive since moved on to the multi coloured lithium complex greases for bearings and UJs. as they are much more water resistant.
I ordered some parts from Holland recently,
hmm, if people cant/are unwilling to fill in the paper work correctly. that is there own issue, and unfortunately in this case becomes yours too.
i recently ordered 27kg of parts from holland. i sorted out my own courier, they picked the two packages...
Right, spat the dummy out a few weeks ago now with what seems to be a constant grease gun shambles.
Slat one across the workshop. Looked at the others hanging on the wall with utter disdain...
This showed up today. Part birthday present.
Bargain at £160 all in from the US,
New spring fitted.
Old breather hard lines.
"modify as required" according to merc.
Accelerator pedal was a bit sloppy, replaced the worn bushes with new,
Old and New air filters. Long over due replacing.
The thin one sits inside the not so thin one.
back on the road now. got some...
yeah, i pushed it that bit too far. should be ok though. i always find those short, sharp bends a bit difficult. i also have this OCD thing with following the shape of the original as close as possible...
your not wrong there. im hoping one day it will, but i doubt it.
sure! will be ready in...
Ever get the feeling your on a bad run?
Went for a drive around the block, all good, then brake fluid warning light came on..
Got back to base and fluid was pissing out from the front left.
Corroded lines. Replaced with copper.
Yeah, that's right. Broken spring too.. :icon-rolleyes:
its normally people from cities and towns who tell me they dont have a problem with wind turbines and solar fields.
lets stop piss potting around and go nuclear.
make electricity cheap enough and we would all be installing electric boilers, direct replacement, 100% efficient, smaller, quiter and...
New axle tube seal fitted, halfshaft popped back in.
Smear with sealant, and bolt back up. Weights about 30 kg.
Long overdue investment in a bigger torque wrench. Caliper bolts are 400nm, wheel nuts 350nm.
Good time to fit the new handbrake actuator I've had under the bench for a while...
Hub seal fitted, these are called a cassette seal, inner and outer sections are fixed and the seal rotates within itself.
Deep groove bearing pressed onto the top gear.
"wear ring" fitted and circlip. The wear ring is a good design, this is what the axle tube seal rides on, so no wear on the...
i vaguely remember the early carb petrol may have the switch over solenoids. so it draws from the sub rather than transfers the fuel to the main. the electronic injection engines transfer the fuel to the main tank.
have a look underneath, if there are two solenoids its the switch over set up...
Turn back over. The large roller bearing has a plastic "assembly ring". Keeps all of the rollers from rolling all over the workshop floor..
Taps in nicely again.
That bit of molly grease in one of the bolt holes, was actually a broken bolt...
Luckily it came out pretty easy...
Fitted small gear bearing and large gear bearing into housing. They go in nicely with a copper drift and gentle tapping.
Turn the assembly over and press the large gear into the bearing, this was a little tricky tbh.
That cavalier front wheel bearing I changed 20 years ago was just the...
Gears and housing were picked up on Monday in Holland about 4pm.
I received them on the Tuesday just before dinner.
Bearings and seals arrived on the same day from South cave tractors. Good company to do business with and very knowledgeable.
Very pleased with the condition of the gears...
