  • Jeremy MkIII29 May 2024

    Thanks Trev; that would make sense as the motor factors although still having their original name, were taken over by a US company a while ago, along with many others it seems. Same practice happening with local builders merchants and veterinary practices.

    Seen the name as sponsors on touring cars but no idea what they are like. Think they are an American company.

    I'm trying to buy more locally and my local motor factor has Bosch oil filters in stock but the engine oil (20w/50) is branded NAPA. It's supposedly made by Valvoline but I've never heard of it - has anyone used it and is it any good? It's 24.10 for 5 litres but needs to be ordered - available later today!
    They have Valvoline racing 20w/50 on the shelves for 36 for 5 litres as an alternative.

    I used to live in a room full of mirrors
    All I could see was me

    So I took a hammer and I smashed my mirrors
    And now I can pretend I'm still twenty.

    😅😅

    I'll dig out some more. The problem is that I have to go down the wormhole that is the Old photo box and I've been known to get stuck there for half a day!

  • Tysen McCarthy29 May 2024

    My original differential plugs were starting to weep a bit so I got some new ones from Moss.

    The new ones leak worse than the old ones! Plus the original once sit roughly flush with bottom of the diff. The new one sits roughly 1/2" - 5/8" proud when fully screwed in.

    Anyone with a similar problem?

    Would teflon tape be an acceptable application on the threads to help at least r...

  • William Revit29 May 2024

    I stand corrected Greybeard, I must admit I have given in early in the past trying to fit an original pipe and just made up a longer one--the thinking was to eliminate the filter/screen anyway - one less thing to go wrong.

    Peter's early comment about poking the wire in the hole and hitting the baffle sounds a lot like the tube isn't there. Or wasn't at that stage.

  • Bruce Cunha28 May 2024

    I am in need of the little spring clip that holds the output one way flapper valve in on a model AUA 25 Lucas fuel pump.

    I did not find one in the rebuild kit, and ofcourse as soon as I removed the old one, it went flying.

    Picture shows the valve without the clip.

    Also, is there anyone that is rebuilding these like Dave Dubois used to?
