    Not having much luck using the standard US grease gun for the zerk fittingss on the TF. Is there a different end fitting you can buy that will thread on a U.S grease gun and pop on the grease fittings on the car?

    Adrian,

    That's what I was thinking, a sleeve nut like for wheels to get it started but I think pressing it home would be best as the threads have been damaged in the past and I had to clean them up with a 9/16" BSF die.

    Last word; UK is still on MPH.Something about the French going metric in Napoleon's time.

    For reassembly, it might be possible to make up a special long nut with a plain outer section at one end to start the arms, then remove and fit proper nut to finish?

    Yep, curious Bernie.

    But then again, although dangerous, rasputin is becoming something of a comic figure too. To be taken seriously, and the piss taken in equal measure. 😁

    Putin on a Ritz, isn't he a bitch.

    I just had a used pump rebuilt here in the USA.

    I guess there are rebuilders in the UK.

    This has got me thinking now as surely some of these big twin axle caravans plus the Chelsea tractors pulling them must be well over 3.5t. It makes you wonder whether a lot of them are being driven illegally.

    Rob,

    IIRC Les has already sourced the correct welch plug for the damper as he removed the old one from one damper as it was weeping oil from a previous repair and needed to be replaced properly. Now the arms are off the seals can be dealt with.

  • T Mason04 May 2022

    Rob, on reading it again I realise that the figure would equate to 7.5t plus a trailer of 750kg so assume that is what applies if you are under 70 but not over. As with all these things it's not very clear. It's good to see that you still have other categories though as I did wonder about bikes etc as I seem to remember the last time I changed my licence you had to specify what you were entitled t...

    Perhaps a useful piece of information the RAL 1019 colour gives, in my opinion, the closest match to original. Gloss or semi gloss? That's where I come a bit unstuck as 60 year old frame was tricky to determine I went for gloss.
