    Hmm.. seems a lot of money and effort for little gain.. may as well change engine and gearbox for that money.. pinto or something

  • M Arundell28 July 2016

    Park next to a wall and ye wont need to ever open that door. ha ha

  • M Arundell28 July 2016

    At least get one with proviso for a piece of soft rope or cord to be tied from one side to the other underneath to keep it from blowing off. Most have a grommet on each side at bottom--when it is over the carr. That or park next to a wall

    Why not say it has been misplaced. They do a few keystrokes on the computer and all are happy? Then at least you can hang it on a wall.

    Thnaks, Steve. Couldn't tell you many address changes I've posted in the past month. We're getting there. I'll try to make a SEMGTR Noggin 'n Natter in a couple weeks. Bud

    I've had the 236-016 $74.99 Nylon Car Cover that rolls up into an MG logo bag. It does a good job of protecting the car --BUT -- it has no inherent fasteners. It's a pain to set it up for wind or rain protection. Would I buy it again? Nope. Bud

    Nice one Steve.☺
    I'm ok for spares stowage space but it would have been very tempting just to fit a crate of Dalwhinnie on the back!

    Been looking into this, it appears Grade 8 (equivalent to 10.9 in new money) torqued dry is typically quoted as 49 lb. ft. So maybe 60 is OK.

    and M10 x 1.5 grade 12.9 is 60+ lb.ft with a coarser thread

    Must be us Northeners find this funny. No one else seems to.
    I originally tried to post with
    in the text but it's automatically blocked.

    But it seems to have accepted this.

    For others look at the web address on the side of the car but try saying it with a Yorkshire accent


  • Malcolm Le Chevalier28 July 2016

    Dunno Bill, I have no real data, but in the past few months there have been two, maybe three people on the BBS here that have broken shafts.

    I think it is an increasingly common issue as shafts get older and older.
