  3. Thanks guys. Moved house recently and mislaid my Sierra manual, but I like the 'rule of thumb', or several thumbs to make 150 mm. Brian P.
  4. Hoping to tackle the job of replacing the boots etc over the weekend. Where can I find torque data for the joints?
  5. Hi there, The rubber covers on my 2B's wishbone suspension and track rod ends are splitting. Does anyone know a supplier of replacements or, alternatively, the original supplier of the track rods and suspension joints to RHE? Someone suggested they were from the Austin Maxi; any one want to comment? Hope there's someone out there with the answer - MoT looms ! Thanks Brian P
  6. As a first timer at Barkeston Heath, I'd just like to thank John and all the RAFMSA guys for a tremendous day. Reeely enjoyed it. Many thanks. Brian P
  7. Hi John, One of our party has scratched I'm afraid. Felicity Spratt 411. I suppose it's too late for you to use the 'slot' for someone else - I haven't been able to fill it. Sorry for any inconvenience. Regards brian
  8. Hi John, Thanks for posting the info on the forum. I realise now that what I received was not the Regs, it was two sets of the Health & Safety Guidelines - hence no info on time/gate etc. Do I need a copy of the actual Regs? I do have completed entry forms and passenger forms. Thanks. Brian
  9. Hi John, I've received two sets of regs in post, but can't see anything about time of arrival or which entrance to use. Is there a restriction on arrival as one car in our party is expected to arrive part way through the morning? Looking forward to it though ... ! Brian P

    Hi There, I am interested, but couldn't collect until later in month. I'm not going to Newark cos it's my birthday and the family think I should spend it with them - funny that! I suppose the only other thing is - what's 'fair condition'? Totally understand, though, if you'd rather make a deal with someone at Newark. Regards Brian P
  12. Very disappointed not to have bought this item despite prompt contact, full price offer and very local to seller. Ho hum ...
  13. Hi there, I've sent you a PM. Regards, Brian

    2b Rear Wings

    Hi there, we bought them a couple of years ago at a clearout sale at Robin Hood - one of Richard's last events before the sale I think. So I don't know whether they are still available from GBS or not. Brian

    2b Rear Wings

    2b Rear Wings

    For Sale One pair of 2B rear wings - two part stainless steel and Oxford Blue GRP. Unused, still with protective coating. These items were formed to shape as an experiment before deciding to go for full GRP wings, so tabs are bent over and some predrilling, but still flexible and usable. Offers around £15 the pair - collection only North Birmingham - Nr Junction 7 M6.
  17. Many thanks, I'll drop him a line. Brian P
  18. Hi there, I've just moved my 2B's insurance from Adrian Flux to Highway Insurance via a broker called Youngs in Colchester. Very helpful and saved quite a bit, which meant I could add a third driver. Theyv'e asked me for the usual half dozen photos to back up the agreed value, but they've also sent a form which asks for details of the car's condition and specification. This has to ne completed/countersigned by a 'motor engineer' or the 'club valuation officer'. Does RHOCAR have such a person, or can anyone make a suggestion of how I handle it without having to pay my local 'friendly' garageman some cash? Thanks Brian P
