    I have been following the thread on disc brakes and noted the availability problem with steel wheel brake drums. I believe the TF ones are the same as ones fitted to the Hindustan Ambassador which only went out of production in India recently. If you Google Hindustan Ambassador and click on images and flick through about twenty photos you will a PIC of an Indian gentleman displaying Hindustan part...

    Most modern flasher units require an additional earth connection to function, tho I have seen a few that use the fixing screw as an earth.

    It sounds as if it's working ok but is a faulty unit, ie no pulsing live out of the "P" connector.

    I usually use a Lucas SFB163 which fits old Renaults and works well.

    It's marked 31................which is the additional e...

    I am looking for a good used oil sump for a 1600. If anyone has such an animal as a spare for sale, please contact me at If I recall, an early MGB is the same and I would consider a NOS also, I'm tired of looking. Thx Jack

    Yup. Banding. Remember my thread on the subject a few years ago? I was asking about that very thing, because I wasn't so keen on minilites. I bought a set of original steels, but haven't got around yet to getting them banded. The only thing to watch, is getting the offset right. 20mm, I think it is.

    Go into the technical archives 2011. Look for this thread. "Widening (banding) wheels. Who's...

    Following an unplanned off-road experience which destroyed a rear wheel, oil has beenleaking into the brake drum.

    On removing the brake drum it was obvious that the flange of the half shaft wasn't sitting evenly against the face of the hub. Bearings and oil seal were checked and found to be OK and thinking the half shaft may have been bent, a replacement half-shaft was fitted.

    "Having my self fired many guns over the years... I can tell you, there is a sensation of power just holding a gun, firing a 45 cal makes me think im doc holiday, and im in the streets of dodge city kansas, and someone has to die for saying my name without enough respect -- "

    Wow. Really? I've only ever held and fired an air gun and rifle, so I have no idea how it feels to hold and shoot th...
