Re: Hello (first post) and sliding door lock advice...

I used to have a lot of trouble on a 1981 slider lock.

If I remember right it could be tightened too much and stopped it turning.
In the end I put a hole in the card so it can be tightened whenever.

Aircooled seized front caliper repair kits.

Confused over which calipers I have and the difference if any in the repair kits. These are not the original calipers. I think I have Teves as Haynes says that the pad pins knock out into the wheel arch. And the pistons have indents but no matching shapes on the back of the pads, problem? Bigger di...

Re: Carburettor engine bay return spring

Also,as far as I understand it, the spring is only there to pull on the end of the cable.
This allows the cable to return regardless of the arm position.

Re: Vibration for 5 seconds at a time

Might be a bolt on flexible joints (x3) on steering column.
I've had a bolt come loose and give these symptoms.
When stationary and steering wheel turned a bit does it click ?

Re: Plastic engine hatch deck

Just thinking, are we talking about the same thing here?
I am on about the hatch you remove to get into the engine bay.
Even the bloke next to me while I was buying it, said he had never seen one that was not metal.
