Re: Well I said I would.............

(There is a new post on the previous page - just in case I haven't bored you to tears yet) The other job that has been absorbing time and effort is the shrouding for the radiator. The difficult part for this job was to get the fit accurate of the lower portion of the forward facing blade so that whe...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Dear All, I hope the world is treating you fairly and you are getting some time in the garage. I tried to fit the the pressed steel boxes under the de-mister vents but found the horizontal arrangement of the original made fitting the hoses to the heater itself somewhat clunky. To make the arrangemen...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Thank you the blue Hylomar tip. See what i mean, proper engineer. Roger must either be on holiday or in respite care as otherwise he would have been recommending the imperial tube. Now, I will just pop into the garbage with my usual vocal limbering up exercises as i undo all 18 clips. As to the brak...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Finally for tonight, I tried to fit the lower hose - you may recall I was unaware of the availability of left sided water pumps but the things of which I am unaware would fill volumes. However, the weight of the empty hose with the silicone pipes and clips was concerning as to what would happen when...

Re: Well I said I would.............

The next problem was that I had had a stainless steel exhaust made up by a local firm who had already made one for a 289. The resourceful gentlemen had looked under the car, seen two bolt holes in just the right place and bolted the exhaust hanger to the chassis. When I came to fit the prop shaft ho...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Well, firstly, my thanks to the last little bastions of the free market at Photobucket with the deep desire that they burn in whatever digital hell is reserved for the pond scum. secondly. I will replace the photos but it will take time. Meanwhile, I have done some work and moved a stage closer. The...

Re: Your Second 289?

The venerable old lady (think gimlet eyed granny with a whistling hearing aid and a tone of addres that would cut glass) has her belts off at present but will be making a reappearance in August when pictures will be posted. Perhaps this section might be renamed anything I own with a collection of wh...

Re: Your Second 289?

Trying not to lower the tone, but my other is a 1994 Ducati 900ss - twin cylinder air cooled with flat slide carbs and uprated suspension. Doesn't sound that much, but will lift the front wheel in second on the throttle - in real money that's about 65mph; Trust me, I wouldn't worry about loosing fil...

Re: Well I said I would.............

The coloured plastic gear comes off the end............... Nope, new one on me and that would explain a lot and right now there is a chorus of Homer Simpson type Dohs being heard across the shires - as ever thank you for helping.
