Coolant hose for use with "Rew Pot"

Jim, I haven't a clue....Robin did it, perhaps he thought the original went too close to the moving or hot parts? It is a power steering model.

Coolant hose for use with "Rew Pot"

Hi Phil et al, just had a gander at my rewpot plumbing. Difficulty is that engine is in bits and everything else packed away. Looking at the parts diagrams, I think I was wrong. It looks as though everything is standard on the off side, but on the near side we have the bottom rubber hose, then a sho...

Coolant hose for use with "Rew Pot"

Hi Phil, it was the A40, I lived in Stokenchurch and worked in Harley street, trouble was....my 6a is/was mulberry! Had a look this morning, can't find a standard top hose to compare (thought there was one on my spare engine). Will try and compare my two bits to a picture of a standard hose. Will se...

Coolant hose for use with "Rew Pot"

Phil, I second your opinions on the Rewpot, used my 6a with it in place for six years commuting 40 miles in and 40 miles out to central London without any overheating problems. It's definitely going to remain in my car! I'll have a look later, but somewhere in the back of my mind I seem to think tha...

And so it begins

Steve, I had an interesting one happen in an old tractor recently, had the same problem on a fuel line and araldited (liquid metal) it in place. Over a few weeks, I noticed the leak came back. On disassembling, I found that the petrol or tvo had released the bond between the liquid metal and the (cl...

Reliant Fox

Quite a few versions of the Fox were available. An old friend had a high top with windows and a wheelchair lift supplied so that it was easy to take his paraplegic son on trips unaided. Great vehicle although slowish (but frugal) and had the dreaded wanderitis in side winds.

Car Reg Transfer

Just checked another DVLA expert and he says that the wording from DVLA is vague as it states both tax and mot need to be paid on vehicle that number is being transferred from. Now, we are not sure if tax exemption, ie historic, means the same thing. Think you are going to have to ask DVLA themselves.

Car Reg Transfer

As far as I'm aware, the only proviso that DVLA has is that the vehicle that the number is being transferred from has to have a current mot regardless of being newish or historic. You can also sell a number if it is on retention, regardless of the vehicle it originally came off.

Need documentation on a SE5

I hadn't commented here yet as I haven't got a recent result, but here's my experiences from some time ago and a current one still underway. I had to do the first register on my Cox gtm as it was the works race car up until my ownership. Took it to Luton DVLA and guy literally looked out the window ...

Replacement carpets

Hi, did mine a few months back and spent out on better quality carpet and underlay so that I didn't need to bind the edges and the carpet could be moulded into shape by stretching and pressing. Just take your time.....I found that heavy weights left overnight on an uncut footwell piece helped in get...
