Re: Fuel line longevity

Interesting! So how on earth are you meant to monitor the condition of that?? In the case of the leak, it was behind an undertray, so hidden from view. So if using rubber hose it would be advisable to have all the joins accessible to view. The answer is Teflon lined braided with pre formed end fitt...

Re: Fuel line longevity

Bear in mind that rubber fuel hose is double layered with reinforcing in between. Having contacted Gates to clarify their hose is E safe I was astounded to find the outer layer disintegrating when exposed to a leaking fitting. Going back to Gates and asking why ? was informed that only the inner lay...

Re: Fuel line longevity

Roger Thank you very much. I have dealt with both of those guys before, I will shoot them enquiry mails. I did not realise Nitrophyl also had issues. I am running a 4100 on my Rover, just looking to future proof. Keep safe and enjoy what you can this year, will bump into you somewhere no doubt. Off ...

Re: Well, that didn't fit

My understanding is that they are there to stop the screen blowing out of the rubber. If the screen is screwed in (a) you don't need them (b) every time you get out of the car you are going to get asked - why are those strips there ?

Re: setting rear IRS camber

I use a section of 20 x 40 box section steel with a couple of studs screwed in each end set at the wheel diameter. The studs need to be long enough to allow the box to clear the wheel spinner, and need to be set at the same distance out from the box, ie 80mm - 100mm. By holding the box vertically wi...

Re: Knock-on wheels: anti-sieze?

I suspect that the face of any wheel that a sleeve sits against on an alloy wheel must also be cleaned of pa...
