    Maybe LHD vs RHD were built for the most pressing orders? Australia was very much a car-starved market after the war whereas America maybe needed to be introduced to the TD before the orders came in?

    You're right, the ground wire did go under the base. Don't know why.

    We installed a parking light on a friend's TF today. I made a three wire pigtail with vinyl covered wire (turn signal, parking light, ground) and ran all three through the hole in the lamp base.

    I ended up soldering the ground to the loose sleeve bullet and inserting it into the wrap connector on the lamp base ...

    Tom. I have heard that about the more exports the more steel. Interestingly, many of the early cars are in Australia. I wonder if it was easier shipping to Australia at that time.

    I always thought Blockley Tyres was a seller, not a brand of tyres?...some confusion there?

  • T Mason26 February 2021

    Willy, I dont want to tempt fate but I have no plans to see the doc in the near future. I'm not one of their regular customers. In fact since our old ones all retired I've not seen any of the new crop.

    No, I'm not kicking myself for not missing work to have the jab. I wouldnt even consider doing that. Over here age is the driver not occupation but I dont consider myself frontline anyway.

    Can't believe you haven't seen bolt head markings, they've been about since Adam was a boy
    And believe me the L9 bolts are much more brittle with sideways load than a grade 5
    Some reading -

    Also earlier someone mentioned 8.8 on imperial bolts and to ignore it---not so

    Trev.
    Just a suggestion---next time you go to the Doc. I'd be asking him/her why he/she hasn't been keeping you up to date with what's available for you and why he/she hasn't told you in the past
    When I go to my Doc. she gets her list out and checks it off, then suggests something like, you haven't had a blood test for a while, roll your sleeve up, or here's your bowel cancer kit and make ...

    If the problem persists try putting the handbrake on. If the pedal feel is improved you need to fully adjust the handbrake.

    If you are sure you have all the air out and still have a long oedal, check how much the caliper pistons are retracting. With new seals and not quite enough lube they need more effort than normal to push the pistons through the seals. This compresses the seals more than normal, so when they rebound after pressure is released they will retract the pistons further than usual. 20 thou per piston i...

    More good news re covid vaccines.

    Data the world has been waiting for.

    One dose of the vaccines has been proved to slow the spread of the virus. Two doses even better.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-56211755

    As if any are needed, another reason why everybody should be vaccinated, who can be vaccinated. Being jabbed is each individual's means to help end the pandemic....

  • MGA RHD STEERING RACK FOR SALE

    Hi,

    I have an MGA right hand drive steering rack that I no longer require.

    I bought it when I was restoring our MGA 1500 as I had the feeling I might do another. I now have other cars that take a priority so donít need this steering rack anymore. I was going to put it on eBay, but I thought someone here might appreciate it more. It will probably need servicing, thought the rubb...
