    Geoff, you might want to reconsider the idea of brazing for a piece of copper pipe. The temperatures required for brazing are high enough to melt the copper pipe. I learned that the hard way.
    You might want to check the archives for past threads on the Evans coolant. Bud

    You ruin all the fun Mike, posting a sensible step by step trouble shooting guide! That is not the game, the game is to shout out random, unrelated suggestions in the hope that someone gets lucky with the right answer! :-D

    As there is doubt in some minds, here is the page from the red Brochure I have for the TF1500. titled "there's a new (image of a bee) in its bonnet!"

    As this was published I find it hard to comprehend that not one buyer of a new TF 1500 did not order a full Tonneau.

    As I have said before I have seen one in the early 1980's from memory it was tan on the outside and salt and pepper o...

    No need to source a special plug just fabricate your own from a standard 8X1 bolt and judicial use of a hacksaw to cut thread to length and create a slot.

    Engine builders can be a source of all kinds of grief unfortunately sometimes quality control has to rest solely on the shoulders of the owner. I learnt the hard way with my XPAG I was fortunate I had a good tutor providing guidance befor...

    But that wasn't a live commentary was it? It was post event judging by his remarks being mostly in past tense. So I assumed he was privy to the state of the halfshaft. But I agree, even expanded it's a bit hard to tell what state the spline is in. Although the end does look deformed to me at the least. Perhaps not suprising though as it bounced around a fair bit.

    But anyway, great seeing al...
