    Problem adjusting shims on steering

    The hubs are self contained. There is a spring but it’s relatively weak and only puts a pound or two pressure on the locking spline. The hardest bit is hammering a torx bit into the rounded Allen key studs to unscrew them. The whole unit then simply pulls off the hub in one piece.

    One Piece Door Seals

    I have one piece seals. They are good but I too had to grind off the lip on the door frame. They are advertised as series so fit well but the bottoms have to be trimmed off to size. The top is ready tingly long and as you fit the right angled corners first then knock in the middle bit it pushes...

    Series 3 Engine out top or bottom?

    When my big brother took engines out it was my job to stand on the inner wings with a rope slung under the sump and round my neck. In those days I had the umph to squat a few pounds. It used to take three of them to lift it off me over the front. The biggest one we did was a Ford escort though.

    Series 3 Fuel tank

    I have a DDS tank in the shed but never fitted it. It weighs much more than I expected. It would be interesting to find out how much a britpart one weights in comparison. I’ll get round to it one day when I have the time to tart up the bits behind the old one.

    Yes. It all depends how American you want to look. 🙄

    Old dive compressor lister engine.

    One gets a little tired of driving to the scuba shop to have a full tank topped a couple of bar when the twunts charge per fill and not per bar. 👍

    Old dive compressor lister engine.

    Mine fills to 300 bar. It’s regulated so has a longer sweet spot pressure of about 100-150 shots. Unfortunately a 300 bar dive tank has very few fills at the top end and although still good for an amateur drowner, is next to useless for prolonged top ups. It’s why a tanks service life is much...

    Movement ???

    So is the cheese on the moon 🙄 Good in relation to their old ones or good compared to an aluminium pound coin. 🤣

    Movement ???

    I’ve got a bush but the one on it ain’t that old. Paddocks cocked up on their website and I got two full swivel ball kits for £12. 😮 Then again they were probably britpart ones. 😳

    Movement ???

    While messing with my off side free wheeling hub the other day I thought it was time to check any movement in the bearings. Did the usual thing- jacked up the corner and had a jiggle N,S E n W. Found some movement north and south. Tightened the nut one castlation and still a minute wobble...

    Series 3 Crankshaft Pulley suddenly seized?

    Give it a start but keep the bonnet up just in case. Nowt worse than a hole in your bonnet. Just kidding 😉 if it’s a seized engine the starter won’t turn it. When I smashed the top end to bits with a snapped timing chain the starter wouldn’t budge anything. 👍

    Speedo Drive gear

    I’m sure you have to change it at the speedo end. There are a few recalibration services out there. Not sure if you have to know what your ratio requirement is but they will know.

    Radiator options

    I was thinking a rub over with wire wool and a spot of superglue and baking soda. Worked for me.

    Series 3 Engine out top or bottom?

    I lifted the stripped block on and off a workbench for the mobile rebore man but even completely empty it was a fair umph. Hope you get it out 👍

    Seems such a waste of the bare footed chaps time crouched in the dirt. Not to mention his stack of flattened oil cans. 🤫
