Re: Flexible petrol pipe

or plain black rubber pipe. I went to buy black petrol pipe at a stall at the 'Bristol Classic Show' and was warned only to use "Ethanol Resistant" stuff. A while later my 'Airhead' BMW sprung leaks all over its fuel pipework and I had to replace it all. Be sure you know what you're buyin...

Re: clutch and mainshaft

You want to see 75% of the bolts broken in the slewing ring of a big cherry picker. :shock: :shock: I have a 'Cherry Picker', but its a 'Versalift NF36' made in Waco, Texas (mounted on a Ford Transit 190). Hopefully it doesn't have Chinese bolts . . . or should I be checking more frequently ??? Bob.

Re: clutch and mainshaft

I just gave it a quick 'Brrrrrrrpt' - nothing sustained. The Milwaukee has removed rusty bolts from my Toyota Landcruiser that I couldn't shift with heat and a 24" Power Bar (on my back, bracing my feet against the chassis). I treat it (and the nuts) with respect (six-point impact socket of cou...

Re: NH chain alignment

:lol: :lol: :lol: True . . But with the laser you only need to see the destination end. No lying on your stomach sighting along the rod (in the cold, and the wet, and the oil) ;) .

Re: clutch and mainshaft

I did my crankshaft nuts up with a quick blast from my Milwaukee cordless Rattle-Gun (its a serious tool).

New lock washers and so on of course.

Time will tell 8-) .

Re: NH chain alignment

A bit of an 'aside' . . Whilst browsing through bike bits on e-Bay I came across this laser wheel alignment tool: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Laser-Monkey-Wheel-Alignment-Tool-Tru-Tension-Motorbike-TRI-YAM-SUZ-HON-DUC-KAWA/283424554005?fits=UKM_Make%3ATriumph%7CUKM_StreetName%3ATiger+Cub%7CUKM_Model%...

Re: Redune Tractor Festival !

I love Agricultural Shows, particularly those with old Farm machinery (I live on a farm). I always come away feeling guilty - I MUST finish the renovation of my 1976 'Zetor 6718', its been blocking my garage for too many years. Its good to see that the French look after their old stuff too. Nice pic...
