    I have Pirelli P3000 165/70 R13s fitted to my modified 1973. Excellent tyres in every respect. I have hardly ever lost grip - and I don't hang about, they seem fine enough in winter/rain, and they do seem to fill the arches nicely for a 13 inch.

    Sorry for thread drift. Seems the Glenelg ferry started life in 1968 at the Ballachulish crossing (Loch Leven south of Fort William). I will have crossed on it there as well in that case.
    Now at Glenelg it is apparently the only remaining turntable ferry in the world. It had a refit in 2013 when they lifted the turntable deck off. It rotates on a single, central push fit bearing, supported aro...
