    What ever happened to "Champion. and KLG " brand Spark Plugs?
    The world drove on these for years.
    Perhaps it was like the demise of the English Motor Cycle Industery.
    Those old tins that Champion plugs came in---are just so handy.
    Just remembering---"when"

    Got it in SEM Self Etching primer today. Started on the other fender. The stripper pads do nice work of removing the old paint, and any body filler.

    Looks like I will be spending a bit more time on the Right fender. Looks like it may have had some minor booboos in the past. But it is improving my panel beater skills.

    Peter. That is what mine looked like prior to remov...

    Brake fluid seems to take off Imron from my experience. :-)

    I miss read the question and thought he wanted a picture of the under dash. :-)

    Anyway there are tons of pictures in the gallery of behind the dash.

    I have some more I have not posted of my own car and if you tell me what you are looking for in an email I can send those.

    They are not something I would post. This area of my car is private. :-)

    The handles of course were chrome. All the other parts were cad plated. Note that the round headed screws are brass and were painted body color on the heads.

    It's a tiny bit messy but if you use an air drill (or a battery drill with a plastic bag on it)and drill it while the box is still loaded with oil the outgoing oil will flush it out as it drains, you can get most of the way through dry but just the last little bit as the hole gets through gets a bit wet
    And most of them I've seen done have had it drilled in the wrong spot, too high...

    Must be the operator--------couldn't possibly be the plugs----lol

    great little car thanks for the pics

    back to solvents-
    you said-
    "I never do any welding, so no danger there. Not allowed since my operation anyway. "
    A shudder went through me when I read that-

    Took an alloy fitting in to get welded up yesterday and , you guessed it he was using brake cleaner to clean stuff up-------couldn't believe it, I was out of ther...

    Finally come to the conclusion that I'm not going to ever do the conversion - age/ wife health issues etc etc etc - therefore I have a gearbox up for offer - so before I even consider evil bay I thought I would post here.

    I realise this may not be good form to mention it here (and get black balled at the club etc) but I would prefer it goes to a good home !

    I understood when I bo...

    To me if the engine is out the things I'd be doing are--at a minimum
    Replace the rear core plug (minimum) , check and/or replace the clutch and bearings (throwout and maybe spigot)
    Front and rear crank seals, timing cover gasket and sidecover gaskets--
    Check the engine mountings--

    These are bare minimum requirements of things that need to be done while the engine is out to sav...


    I have decided to sell my 1951 YA with great reluctance. I have owned it for the last five years and have completed the following key work:

    Chassis fully repaired, brakes, cylinders, master cylinder and linings and copper pipes all replaced.

    Engine rebored, new pistons, camshaft etc, head rebuilt and valves enlarged. Remaining task is the rockers.

    Rebuilt gearbox,...
