    Re: Smiths Fuel Gauge To Tank Sender

    I have just fitted a new sender. I have never had a working gauge. It now works but I also have the same issue. I am working on a solution. I will update here if successful.

    Re: Steering Wheel Alignment

    There is no evidence of welds there. Like it has been said already that is aluminium and steel. I would suggest bearing pullers to pull on the wheel/boss and push on the column.

    Re: Engine bay

    Is your baby’s bottle definitely an expansion tank and not an overflow tank? How does it function if you remove the cap from the tank and keep the cap on the radiator?

    Re: NOS 1.7 O Series Engine

    Different accounts but I think they are both the same seller. They are both in the same location and both adverts say there are two to be sold.

    It was on ebay. It looks like someone has taken the GT6 identity and engine.

    Re: Mug!

    It only holds about 1/3 of a litre. I think the image is showing what is printed around the mug rolled flat (if that makes sense).

    Re: Cabrio spotted near Dunfermline

    Possibly was you. Might have been a Berli, it was red and was joining the A985 from the south and turning right.

    It was my son that spotted you saying "There's a Marlin".

    Yes, there was a saddle there. A plastic one. I did have a look at the phosphor bronze ones. I think I will replace it but not sure if it will make too much difference.
