  1. Thanks guys I'll give it a go.
  2. I have the usual concrete carb rubber problem on my slabby. I need to get the carbs off but no amount of heat will shift them and being afraid of breaking some thing, my hacksaw is looking inviting. Not going to use them again so can I cut the rubbers off or am I missing something
  3. What I was told was that twin lights evolved so that one pointed ahead {up} under hard braking and the other in the normal position.

    Need help

    there are repair kits for sump plugs available on that site. Saw them reviewed in one of the comics. Never used one myself but might be worth a shot
  8. Well I want to make my slabby as original looking as possible, what's under the skin is a different matter. So springs and emulators seem like a good idea
  9. Where did you get the springs and emulators? I'm thinking of doing the same myself
  10. Saw that. There's also a guy who reckons a 3:1 mixture of ipa and wintergreen works well. Mind you I have to get them off first
  11. I think I will invest in a hot air gun just to get them off. I've heard about wintergreen, the yanks swear by it, but I'll probably buy new ones as @Macduff says. (Ive been following his build and it's given me a few. Ideas)
  12. I've finally got around to stripping my slabby but I've hit a problem. The carb rubbers are rock hard and I can't get the carbs off. So do I cut them off or take a hammer to the airbox (which I'd rather keep)? The airbox rubbers are the ones which are giving me problems. thanks Bernard
  13. I saw a you tube video where the guy made a base from plywood and upholstered that. I'm facing the same problem shortly
  14. Not semi circular collets by any chance? I think you need them if they're fitted
  15. I've heard about wintergreen before, its sold on amazon as rubber renue (?) in tiny expensive bottles bottles. I'll work on the basis that there's nothing big to loosen in the engine
