EV anyone?

FLT? Well they're not very fast, are they? And look at the size of their batteries...……. (And there still isn't an emoji for hysterical laughter.) Sorry; bit bored here... the cunning plan was to put the batteries in the trailer :-) and an FLT motor will easily wizz up to 2000rpm, more than enough ...

EV anyone?

Did anyone see the Wheeler Dealers installing an electric motor in a Maserati last evening? Shame it was set in California, I could see that being done to a Scimitar!. Or are there people in the UK doing this sort of thing? Alex. i did see it and thought 'damn' should not have sold the 330 :-) alth...

Cam-shaft oil seal 'popped out'

might be put back in with sealant (or a wee clip from top of camshaft cover) if the new one is sloppy fit :-( also means front and rear crankshaft seal will be the same :-( front is winter task (once spare 480 is moved) rear then I'll check what it is held in with/clearance to make sure it can't mov...

Cam-shaft oil seal 'popped out'

JIm sorry came out front of block, not exactly a 'ticht fit' rather a sloppy push fit would put it back in, picked out with finger nails after popping halfway back in with finger pressure, so not exactly 'press-fit' :shock: the usual ribs around outer rim are not visible so probably been slowly movi...

Cam-shaft oil seal 'popped out'

I can’t see how rocker box pressure could push a cam seal out? They’re pretty tight to fit and need a good lever to remove. my thought as well. maybe slowly been working it's way out and eventually succumbed? I can't see that the thrust plate would come free and not cause MAJOR damage, But I'll che...

Some sort of old European Ford. Similar to a late 60’s Zephyr. In Argostoli today.

Cam-shaft oil seal 'popped out'

as per subject line, tonight on way home front oilseal on cam-shaft made a bid for freedom, first clue was oil light flicked on a couple of times and i thought, odd. then it did it again and decided to stop & investigate. total distance between oil light flickering & stopping probably 1/4 mile, down...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

No Issue, just don`t look right :shock: Not bothered, it's my car. one up on cable ties which I've preferred cos they don't rust AND they don't chaff through the brake pipes :-) as for MoT, yep 'secure' , Cheshire , not applicable :wink: i do like the clean tidy floor, I'm lucky if I can find an ar...

Petrol tank

The pipes that have obviously been replaced are too long anyway so I’ll cut them off before taking the tank out. When the new one goes in I’ll make the pipes a neater fit by chopping to the right length. As the old saying goes, if it looks right etc. aye but leave enough length so you can remove a ...

SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

This one looks good for a low height garage and only £160 more than the scissor lift above. https://www.automotechservices.co.uk/products/230sp-3-0t-capacity-short-2-post-lift/ that would be neat! if the switch gear could fit on either side of lifting post as 'just too wide' for the garage :-( and ...

Petrol tank

Cheers Phil, it’s had some hoses on by the look of it. Don’t like how they are fitted so will probably shorten or replace. Thanks for the info. Rob what Phil is saying is ' do NOT try and wiggle the hoses off the sender' :-) I found I could 'just' remove the sender with the hoses STILL attached fro...

Stuck bonnet and ignition

Make sure the catches are bolted in tight too as the movement sometimes can cause a opening problem To avoid said issue replaced the bolts with allen headed fasteners so i could get EXTRA purchase on them to tighten (and added star washers) to avoid the catches moving, started with them at FULL hei...
