    ... edit... is it 4" PCD or just 100mm "bodged" to fit?

    Thinking of ways to increase boot space as Wifey reckons it is too small to carry much (i.e for going on holiday etc.), I think it is actually not bad and at least on a par with our Panda! :-D

    Face adjusted?

    This is what I think it means. Others will disagree. Are you sitting comfortably?

    The bearings consist essentially of an inner race, outer race and balls. Because these are angular bearings, manufacturing variances (tolerances) affect the linear alignment of the races with each other. If you imagine that a vertical face of the outer race is the datum, the correspon...

    Mazda space saver - better than walking 2 miles carrying a one year old!

    I'm in the very rare and fortunate position of having 2 driveable Midgets atm with the daily car (Tucson) in the garage for a clutch job. Red one conks last night outside Asda 3 hours after Tucson is pulled apart. So down to last driveable car, this morning the blaze Midget gets as far as Lidl with granddaughter on board and blows a tyre.
    Anyone else used one of these?

    "only you would - say that/do that/see that/ ect., ect."

    is a common enough expression between mates/families/colleagues - not that L is in any of those groups but there's be enough interchange, and formerly banter, to sometimes "see the wood for the trees"

    I'm sure if you and I both lived a million years you'd still not get my humour - don't just take offence, take the ga...

    Ford Colour Code YY-9M - 6210 - Colonial White

    Any paint supplier can provide this in any type of paint. I used single stage Polyurethane, because I drive my cars often.

    Enclosed a picture of the car. The colour was a perfect match to the original colour found on the car.

    Prop, are you kidding around or serious? Have you actually been posting constantly on the threads on this subject over all of these years and not learned these things?

    Face adjusted: after making the bearing assembly, the bearing maker face grinds the races so they are within 0.025mm of each other (0.001"), and the whole assembly is within that same tolerance of 15mm thick (inner hub bear...

    You said in an earlier post you had diverted the vent pipe from the tappet chest cover to the carb on the blower. Any chance there is more pressure in the crankcase now - that is pushing oil past the rear seal?
    You could try to put it back as it was for a trip or two - and see if it helps?
    Just a thought.
