  6. On the sierra if the rubber insulator on the gear lever is removed it will rattle HTH jon

  8. The metal part of the pad does not seem to be fitting properly onto the caliper. and the disc seems a lot thicker on one side Think wrong calipers or disks HTH jon
  9. Think it has to be 17 or 19 mm rad on bottom edge of dash.Cut plastic or rubber tube or hose.(only one cut ) Cover with vinyl or the same covering as the dash slot or glue on HTH jon
  10. Best bet is hammer and chisel.There's enough plug sticking out to use a chisel, give it a few bats from one side then a few from the other, trying to unscrew it anticlockwise. I've had quite a few to get out, but it,s not easy to get at. HTH jon PS if you get it out, get someone to weld a big nut onto it so you can get a spanner on next time
  11. My garage is only 9ft high and its got a 4post lift in it leaving about 4ft under the car I just use an office chair to move about under the car. Changed G/box Engines Diffs everything you can think of in that space I've seen a shallow pit under a lift to give a bit more space you can pick up a lift for £300 to £500 HTH jon PS get one where the hydraulic ram does not go through the roof
  12. Lots of cars: Pre-war Classics Commercials Motorcycles and anything Interesting. Hoping for quite a few Hoods and other kit cars. Be there before10.30 to get onto the field been to the last 2 shows its very good Hope to see you there jon
