Re: Wheel bearing help, My brain has disolved!

It's in the shopping basket! Brickwerks are quite close, but got nothing to drive there in.

Re: Wheel bearing help, My brain has disolved!

Should have shopped at Brickwerks!!! I get most bits from them for a reason. Meyle have always seemed "ok" but this amount of play is ridiculous. Hence why I suspect another (additional?) Issue. I'd shelve it till we get back from holiday but the water pump has failed on our audi and it's ...

Didn't have to do it for the mot test but thought what the hell, get it done while overhauling the brakes. Re test tomorrow, test up next week and holiday Friday so have to sort quick. Replac...

Re: 1986 syncro Caravelle twin slider

Might be a silly question, but how does he weld the top half of the rear vertical seam?

Re: Webasto retrofit...

Did you find a manual for it? Spotted this earlier amongst other stuff. And in English.

Not sure if it has enough detail but the basics are there.

Re: Webasto retrofit...

Once you've simplified the wiring, your timer should function as an on off switch. Your heater will self regulate to some extent anyway. I fitted a DBW46 to mine and used a pipe connector that came with it. It' a sort of double T with a bleed through, that diverts the coolant from the hot feed pipe ...

1.6 TD ? jx Intermediate pulley.

Anyone know if pulleys with and without the ridge around the edge are interchangeable, or why they are different. Mine has the ridge which is damaged and wearing the belt. Can they be swapped or even have the ridge ground off?
Ta,
Tim.

Re: Epoxy primer

Are we talking epoxy in an aerosol? I didn't know such a thing existed. Have you got any links? It would be really handy for paint as you repair.

Re: any metal fabrication people on here

What's the end use? I used to make one off architectural stuff like domes and more sculptural things years ago. For that sort of tolerance in box you would need a specialist bender with all the kit.

Re: any metal fabrication people on here

All depends on the radius and how accurate you want to be. A gentle bend over a long length can be done over a former. Go too tight and it just buckles. Specialist benders can go to quite a tight radius but have specialist machinery to do it.

Re: Ci Autohome New Roof!

Yeah, I've got loads of celotex/kingspan. Its the tissue face that I've not come across, hence the question. You can if your carefull strip the foil off one surface of kingspan to allow the board to curve, which leaves the bare foam to bond to. Having a tissue scrim would be so much easier to get a ...

Re: Ci Autohome New Roof!

Looks great! Does the foam board have a trade name? or is it some form of roofing product?
