  1. If it's not the cable then I would think it's the oil it's very common for people to just put ep90 oil in instead of mt75 oil, that is of course if it's an mt75 gearbox (should be). I would just change tho oil and see if that makes a difference. HTH ivan

  8. yes I live in Priddy which is on the top of the hill cyclists have become a absolute plague one or two wouldn't be so bad but we get them in swarms of 20 upwards about time the law was enforced I.E. they should ride in single file!!!!! obey all the rules of the road etc.. p.s. I ride a mountain bike around up there too but I have more respect for other road users than most of them seem to. and if you did run one over guess who's fault it would be!!!! rant over (for now)

  11. looks a bit more untidy and a little more difficult to achieve good belt contact when you put the alternator on the other side of the engine. like I said I'd like to see how well a reversed impeller works I might have to buy one! nice looking motor btw.
  12. rigged up a zetec water pump a while ago so I could test the flow rate when reversed here's the result. https://youtu.be/4TwrRc0NLxY would like to repete with a reversed impeller but don't know if the outlay would be worth it. anyone want to lend me one?

  17. yes you are right, works the same way a grinding wheel is mounted. something to do with the transference of energy. I'm sure someone will come up with the full scientific/engineering answer. I've very lightly painted discs on various cars over the years and never had any obvious problems, if anything I would say that the expansion of rust between the two surfaces would be more of a problem, how many people have had to use a large hammer to remove old discs I certainly have.
  18. lots of discs are now coming from the motor factors either lightly painted or zinc plated fitted a set of expensive discs to a range rover sport they were black all over pad area soon went shiny on the test drive. sprayed mine with a light coat of red oxide for the build ( going to be a while )
