I see, air cooled and water cooled at the same time. Ingenious!

Re: Who Remembers?

I never thought I'd see the day but That's TV, Channel 7 (regional) and Channel 91 (National) are re-showing the Benny Hill Show. Incredibly funny, far more so than I remember it to be. Some of the sketches (which he wrote) are very clever, never realised he was such a genius. https://c4f6q9z9.stac...

Re: rear seat belts mk3

Hi all! Does anyone know of alternative rear seat belt reels and straps/stalks that fit the mk3? I cant seem to find them (ebay has had the odd ones but they seem expensive for a mouldy old belt!) Has anyone found an alternative? Does their orientation matter? Mine is an 85 but didnt come with them...

Re: Time

Time is a weird thing. I restored a complete car 10 years ago. It took nearly 3 years but when I look back I wonder how I did it. But like others have said its just steps at a time. Some will be small but even something like polishing a headlight relay gave me satisfaction of a bit more done. Its ob...

Re: Fitting Superflex TCA Inner Bushes

This pic was removing a bush but putting them in is the same set up - the smaller socket should push the bush through more or less to the degree that it is starting to go too far though. Release the pressure slowly and the bush should stay put!

Re: Trouble Bleeding Brakes following MC Rebuild

Sounds like fluid isn't coming out of the master cylinder. If you have a helper to hand I would disconnect a caliper input pipe and get them to press the brake pedal to see if any fluid comes through
