Ben Totally agree about the moderators deserving a big vote of thanks from us all. Where would we be without them! Phil Thanks for the polite and clear reply. Just one more if I may - how would a non-member contact the admin? I've been looking for about 15 minutes and I can't find contact details ot...

Asking about axles

Interesting replies! I have a surplus axle lying about. Can't quite remember where it came from but I might have a play with it to see how hard it can be before I start on the GTC!

Asking about axles

I've been looking through some old 'Slices; and I noticed a couple of items by the late great Robin Rew. In the first he says that he has "fitted a few 3.07:1 ratio axles into overdrive SE5/5a's as they will pull this ratio quite easily..... but that gearing is too tall for the 6 series" and I'm puz...

SE8 Axle noise query

Ian
Are you still getting on OK with the 3.31 axle? Just asking as I'm thinking about whether to replace or have rebuilt the seized unit in my GTC!

Let me say first that I've been in touch with Ronnie on this subject but what follows is my own opinion! I don't remember, if I ever knew, what the rules were when I joined in 2011. Nor do I remember being offered the chance to leave the Forum if I didn't want to abide by the change. Was there a cir...

Low pressure warning switch / brake pipe threads ?

Agreed that's the theory of dual-circuit brakes but I notice that when I'm bleeding brakes (which equates to a failed circuit IMHO) the pedal goes to the floor and the light doesn't come on! Not just on the GTC M/C I rebuilt but also on the 6a one which is untouched.

Low pressure warning switch / brake pipe threads ?

That's the one I used, but I had to 'adapt' its threads somewhat to get it in.

Please let us know how you get on, I'm interested to see if it works. Although that would mean I've got something wrong again...

The Reliant Eagle

No it's not a newly discovered model - I'm wondering if anyone knows why RMC chose the eagle (if that's what it is) for their logo?

Fierceness? Bravery? High-flying ability? Far-sightedness?

Low pressure warning switch / brake pipe threads ?

You can read the sorry story of my failure switch here. After I rebuilt the MC and replaced the switch it still doesn't work :cry: And TBH I can't see how it would, or why you'd need a light to tell you half the brakes weren't working....

Lovely. How did you do that? I always understood that polishing the anodised bits was impossible?
