  • It’ll be interesting to hear your thoughts on the tf steering rack, initially I was a little ambivalent to the change whilst pondering the grazed knuckles, cricked neck & Volterol back. Manoeuvring, particularly in reverse required more recalculation than I would have though, obviously I am now hefted to it to such an extent that the last f I drove felt strange.

    Two things occur. Firstly your clunk, this sounds like the stick is biased too far forward & is hitting the metalwork around the stick gimble. The second is to replace the scroll pin on the gear change bell crank, if you can’t get it out you might have moved it enough to present a different section to the shaft, which could improve the feel. I hate scroll pins so much that I have been happy with the improvements by shifting it a fraction of an inch.

  • I prefer angstrom unit, angstrom for distance, bushels for weight, cord (128 cubic foot), volume, which can be inconveinient when baking. The fortnight when measuring time, when sidereal time proves problematic, fathoms & nautical miles for boating or f***ing fathoms plus f***ing nautical miles for coarse fishermen. The dram is popular over the border, there are however different sizes from wee upwards.

    Commiserations, people seem to be happy with poor service, if not, the standards in many areas would be better & how many folk would inspect the work done. If you had accepted the job as correct & cleared off at a rate of knots, you could have made a line or two in the local paper, “Well loved local man bounces off two hundred year old oak” & caused inconvenience to other road users whilst the recovery unit dragged the wreckage of your car out of the greenery.

  • I was going to have a jolly trip around the mysteries of the imperial system to bolster you against meeting entrenched geezers such as I, but I’ve just read about your tribulations with the tyre fitters & have decided to keep a low profile. The more I can do on the car, the less time it will need to be in the clutches of the “professionals”, however the older I get the less easy it is to get into & out of the pit; the spirit is willing & the grey matter still functions to a high(ish) level, it’s the undercarriage that lets me down.

  • All good stuff, once I'd freed off the rear control arm nuts I was going to devise a system, however there's no point re-inventing the (DIY) wheel alignment method.
    I can't check your figures, you've worked in metric, you are aware that the UK has cast europe off to drift where it will. I'm just suprised you used degrees & minutes & not radians.
    Your work is never less than impresive. Mike.

  • I made a couple of tools & pressed them out as bashing them with a pin punch seemed to invite catastrophe. I’m no great lover of scroll pins & so I did a bit of engineering, replacing them with modified stainless cap head screws (m4?), much better job & if I need to revisit them it’ll straight forward. As I remember if you do press them out with a vice you’ll only be able to ease them out one way.
