    I am so happy you brought this topic up. Thank you.

    My TF engine had a professional rebuild a few years ago. It is leak free, EXCEPT for the front crank seal area. I know that a modern lip seal was installed, and I know that the old, original pulley was put back in.
    I have a brand new pulley, also from B & G. I have a theory that the seal is fine. The seepage is due ...

    They should be able to sort that out ok for you with a lever pivoted from the bottom of the steering column with a pushrod down to the brake pedal arm
    Most of the bought systems here are like that and have a sliding tube as a pushrod to the brake and then have a linkage to the throttle for accelerating when you pull back on the same lever-foolproof really as you can't brake and accele...

    It’s funny that you should mention the Vectra. It had just hit the market and I was on the lookout for a new company car.

    Definitely I would use a brass nut or copious amount of never seize on a steel nut. Using steel nuts on manifold studs is how they get snapped off leading to a bigger repair later

    Concrete: when building the new Forth Bridge crossing near Edinburgh they poured concrete for the caisson base of one of the main towers in a non stop continuous process lasting 15 days and nights and laying 40,000 tons, almost 17,000cubic metres. This was a word record and an amazing logistical process given that the concrete was being batched and delivered out into the middle of the severe tidal...

    I will need to take the tops off to measure the distance Dominic. It's a year since and I've forgotten the figures.
