    Pressurising the master cylinder (slightly) is a better way. I've always intended to make up an attachment for the compressor using a standard gas regulator to provide a few, constant, PSI but I...

    The dash size for a hose represents its ID in 1/16". So -3 is 3/16" and -4 is 1/4". I may be wrong but I think it relates particularly to AN fittings.

    Put it in neutral, handbrake off and jack up one rear wheel. If you can turn the wheel (the propshaft rotates too) then it is not a powr-lock. If it appears to be solid, or turns with a lot of...

    You have a much larger volume to heat initially with no thermostat, with or without the pump running.

    Probably a nice idea for quicker warm-up - to retain the thermostat and bypass.

    I bought a spool gun with my MIG and it's one of those tools that I seldom use but is very useful when I do. There are jobs where the gun is much easier than trying to get in there with a TIG.

    It presses on but a smear of loctite will do no harm. The ones I have seen are very thin so the same lip seal will run on either - the sleeve simply stretches the seal a little more than usual.

    I understand there are a few special tools needed for that job. Quite straightforward if you already have them. I think that the parts are readily available.

    There's no seal on that shaft so I guess it's intentional for some oil to come up there to lube the shaft and the distributor drive. BTW: quite a good way to bugger up a drill :-) be gentle.

    If I understand the question, it would be quite normal for some oil to come up past the oil pump drive shaft.

    I think we are in agreement. The values from someone else's tank are not useful unless they have exactly the same tank and sender. You have to do the procedure yourself but once you have, the mapping...

    Done correctly those numbers should relate to volume not depth so they will be correct for any shaped tank.

    The calibration over four points above will take out much of the non-linearity, certainly good enough for a gauge.

    You need to be careful comparing across different makes because the spring angle may not be the same.

    The helical diff has no friction plates, just gears, so I would have thought that any good quality oil would be fine - it does not need the "LS" type.

    You could lose the middle relay if you liked and just drive the two remaining #85s from the dash switch through a couple of diodes. Cheaper and a little less wiring.

    Does it not worry you that a 1" bar might be overly stiff? Torsional stiffness vs diameter is a fourth order function or some-such.
