Could I fit a packing spacer within the hole in the ARB, or even weld up and re drill the hole?
bit of steel tube, cut to length?

or if no tube roll a bit of 1mm steel around a bolt?

Webster brakes - recognise them ?

with four leading shoes on front of a light beast, i'd be going for 'simplicity' , it's not as if the seat is going to shift is it . . .. . . :wink:

try running a 15cwt van (Morris J2 ) with leading shoes and reverse down hill then 'trying to stop' THAT is interesting :shock:

C3 emptying

don't think a good idea to run engine with box drained but happy to be corrected . .. the torque converter will hold a fair amount and as it's fed into / from the centre not sure how you'd remove it without removing unit from the box, personal experience showed that when I thought I'd emptied the au...

petrol!

I would wonder just how well the 'after market' is attached to the old steel / rubber filler neck ?

looks fun, boot liner out might shed some light on it, but maybe not cos the steel top frame (boot mounts to) might/will obstruct your view?

petrol!

similar issues here, if park on a slope with O/S lowest, it vents . . .. through the lid,
mine has the simplest breathing version, ie a small pipe at RHS of tank up to the filler neck, I just accept that if tank is brimmed it will leak on a hot day unless parked level :-(

Upper wishbone bush slack Ideas!!

if the silver solder doesn't pan out , those bushes look thick enough that you could drill & tap them for a couple of M4 cap screws? either axially or radially?

I did similar to lock the rear suspension bushes in, M6 drilled radially into the bush, been OK for last ten? years
