    Wow. That's a connection Philip.

    Kenny vs Acker. I preferred Acker.

    Ok Guy, what's this from Acker?

    Wa, wa wa, wa wa wa wa wa wa,

    But then again, Keny in Moscow was great too. Know that one? Wa,wa, wa wa wa,

    Those tunes will be stuck in my head all night now. 😁

    A further thought on this. Looking at the Brown & Gammon website for Twin Cam MGA, tending to find them more reliable than Moss, they show standard front bleed nipples to include a ball bearing which is presumably dropped into the the threaded hole to make the seating/seal. Is this the standard original arrangement? How would one ever get the ball out of the hole if ever required to do so? Anyon...

    Poor choice of phraseology on my part. The bleeding sequence is as you and others have stated. What I meant was what steps work best. Bleed first, adjust later. Adjust first, then bleed. Bleed, pressurize, then adjust? My inclination is to bleed first, then pressurize some (checking the W/C's for any leaks at that point without the drums installed), then if all is good with the W/C's, install t...

    5th March 2021.

    That's the date of that news item Bill. It's very old news. I get it, you and some others hate Boris so much, when he cocks up, or isn't perfect, or sails beyond the wind, or breaks a rule, it assumes an imporance for you far beyond it's actual importance.

    Meanwhile, in the world where truly important things are happening, nobody much cares about all this trivia ...

    Music is something of a mysterious phenomenon to me; it can raise your spirits, make you want to dance (even if you cant) and bring you to tears. You can be deeply in love with some music and hate others.

    Whilst it may appear to not be natural, my aunt could listen to a tune, sit at a piano and play it - even though shed never had a lesson in her life. She must have been quite good as sh...

    Here"s just one example of failure to disclose information. I think the Good Law project are quite well respected. There are several other examples I'm sure I could find but this will do:

    People forget stuff though and/or don't care. As you say, he'll probably be PM at next GE. I'm getting into thread drift here so will l...

    Sequence is not personal, it is farthest from MC first. so if your car is LHD, it would be RR, LR, RF, LF as somebody suggested.

    People have secured the pistons with zip ties, I did not bother, whacked it all together, cranked the adjusters up, vacuumed all the WCs until I had fluid at all of them, topping up the MC often. Then bled using the age-old method, repeated a couple of times a f...

    Maybe people vary? I too can remember whole songs but I'm interested in music and play guitar a bit. I think I've a "good ear" as I can often work out the key and chords to a song by ear.

    Malc

    Your paintwork looks quite good in the picture for rattle cans!

  • J K Bowman22 May 2022

    Hi John
    Leave it alone . It should also have felt on the lower face to run on . If you bend it horizontal it will in effect raise the rear of the sun roof and could result in paint damage to the newly painted top surface by catching under the roof . AS someone else said " Ask me how I know "!!!! I think Tony S said that the tabs should resemble an open birds mouth, one up and one down.
