Seconded on the ebay ones, decent quality when I did mine

If someone buys this and doesn't want the gearbox/flywheel/prop I'd be interested in sorting something out

99% sure that box won't bolt to a 3.2 block, you'd need an R25-28 box

There's a member with a 3.0 breaker in Liverpool, engine has had the cams removed but good block and heads are there along with a good AR35 autobox, he'd take a reasonable offer on the car as a whole and you could scrap the shell to recoup costs 

Omega General Help / Roll pins
« on: 25 August 2018, 17:48:37 »
Need to replace 2 roll pins that hold the manual gearbox rods together but by christ what a pin in the arse it is, seems the hole is 4 ml ( sized with a drill bit) but can't get a 4 ml roll pin into the bloody hole, any specific technique required ? Tried squeezing it with mole grips to no avail

I'll have to up the price when I next get any breakers in  ;D

Tin snips and rip it out, bastrd things are just a nuisance

The PTSD reminds me of an old guy who lived opposite us as kids called Albert, shell shock meant nothing to us as kids and we all knew him well enough not to be scared but he was a character in his own little world and made little sense to talk to but as kids we made sure no one gave him any grief. He lived with his younger brother a who had a torrid time as Albert's obsession was building a shed in his garden so he was forever raiding skips for bits and coming home with all kinds of crap, he painted the outside of the house blue one day just as high as he could reach though  ;D

It wasn't till a few years ago I found out the fuller story from a relative of his, they'd been informed he was missing presumed dead around 1941 when in fact he'd been captured by the Germans in France, he was heavily tortured and kept prisoner for a couple of years and when released was diagnosed as schizophrenic and was too violent to stay with family. He lived the next 25 years in an institution ,only being released when these started to close.   


I heard a lightning strike was possibly to would that be then ?

Just back off hols in Lanzarote, all lovely. Arrived home very weary at 3 AM and as approaching the house thought " The wheely bin don't half pong a bit" as I opened the front door and instinctively went for the light switch the realisation hit me that the house was actually  completely rammed with gas, turns out Father in law ( stone deaf ) had kindly brought some milk etc that morning and had inadvertently knocked one of the gas rings on and this had been hissing away in the sealed up house for nigh on 15 hrs :o

Stupidly went in and opened every door and window,  Christ it was potent, BG emergency where round in half an hour or so and after a while the sniffer said it had dissipated enough to go in. 

I'll remember to turn off the mains next time, something I've never considered doing before. Won't tell FIL as he'd be distraught  :'(

Free carbon monoxide detector was a bonus  :y

Heading to Lanzarote on Monday, will hopefully not be caught up in the heat blast  :o it's frigging miles from mainland Spain so should be ok

Can I get some tasty pies from Tony H's gaff and sit and watch you swear at your car please mister???
