Re: Who Remembers?

So true Paul. When I think about the things I had when I was a kid compared to what todays kids get, well it's unbelieveable. My bikes were secondhand cobbled together out of (usually stolen) bits and pieces and my most prized posession aged 11 was a small, made in Hong Kong, transistor radio that I...

Re: Twin 45s Dhla and dipstick

The tube that the dipstick sits in is only a press fit into the cylinder block. Using some grips at the bottom of the tube you should be able to twist it until it is out of the way.

By the way I love your user name. Have you got big teeth and a red arse? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Who Remembers?

RIP Les. I personally wasn't a fan but my sister was 12 at the time and was mad on them with pictures all over her bedroom. Still, it's sad to hear of all these famous and not so famous people who have breathed their last breath this year.

Re: capri 1.6GL bareshell rebuild

On the headlight backing plate make sure that the adjusters are free and mooving before doing too much restoration to the panel. Mine were seized solid and took a lot of twisting and turning before they freed off.
