    Sure am Jeremy- not many around like her, but the wife won't let me bring her home-----lol

    I'm using citrus based degreaser now, bio-degradable,doesn't stink- the only thing is you have to make sure you really rinse it off aluminium or it gets into it if you leave it on there too long

  • Nigel Atkins27 October 2020

    Bill,
    sorry forgot to include T-cut which is fine but obviously cuts more than car paint polish.

    Don't forget the easy, and effective, stuff like first wiping over with a rag moistened with the liquid cleaner of your choice and using a brush on the more intricate areas. Have the carbs upside down and spray to flush rinse and see where you need to go from there.

    I was going to...

    Firstly, I would say to Paulh that all the drawings and design calculations for the powertrain were held at Longbridge. This covered anything from about 1960 onwards. All Rowertrain and Chassis activity for BMC was centred at Longbridge. The stuff from Canley was brought over in about 1980. That may have been cleared out and sent to Gaydon in the late nineties.
    Having studied Jack Bishop's A s...

    Unlike the later full energy-absorbing column the mid-era collapsible inner is only held in position by the UJ. Disconnecting that allows the whole column to move in and out through the tube, so yes if that happens with the U/J attached it is the shear pegs that have sheared.

    The later full energy-absorbing column has the upper half retained by a bearing and circlips, so when the shear p...

    Willy,
    you're lucky having such a caring Doctor.
    Bill,
    I've found Autogylm engine cleaner and degreaser shifts muck well and is less risky to human health than brake, carb cleaners etc.

  • Peter Allen27 October 2020

    Mine does this, too, but only by about 1/4". I suspect for the wheel removal issue mentioned by Dave.

    Another issue: has anybody else found the plastic bush (as illustrated by John), singularly lacking in its ability to take up play? I had up and down play at the wheel end. Replaced it (third time), along with the one at the bottom, and still have same issues with new one. Anybody had one ...

  • GuyW27 October 2020

    Bill,
    I have some surplus bits and pieces which I have saved but will probably never need - some new but mostly reuseable pieces. Check your carbs over and list what you need.

  • Bill Bretherton27 October 2020

    Willy, noted! I'd actually read up about brake cleaner constituents recently and I concur it is quite nasty. My "inhale" comment was tongue in cheek (although I realise there's nothing funny about it) and I aim to avoid the spray as much as possible. My garage door is always open whilst working so well ventilated. But, you're right, we've probably all breathed too much nasty stuff in. I don't...

  • GuyW27 October 2020

    Electric toothbrushes are good for this sort of cleaning. Preferably not one still in use!

  • JK Mazgaj27 October 2020

    Incidently I have since wondered whether the hole could have been closed off with a removable plate for future checking.
