Thanks Dave: I have no immediate need for the goo, but at that price I've ordered a couple of tubes!  :y

I bought their wishbones, drop link and track rod kit over a year ago and have no complaints regarding delivery, price or quality, if that helps?

I am 1/4 Yorkshire and 1/4 Cornish, so every day is a "spend nothing" day!

Ron.
What about the other two quarters? ;)

1/4 German and 1/4 French!

He won't boast himself, but James did mine in little over an hour, including changing the water pump!  :y :y :y

I have a similar model, ronnyd, and the sound is dreadful from its tiny sixpenny internal speakers, so I feed the audio out into a separate amplifier and speakers.
More annoying than that is its reluctance to come out of standby unless I switch it off at the mains and nack on again. Toshiba know of the problem, and have no cure. Others have reported similarissues - does yours do it as well?

Ah Dr. Opti, what an absolute gem The Eagle was! I loved the cutaway drawings in the centre pages, full of amazing detail: the graphic artist was incredibly skilled. I suppose it died because it was too expensive to produce at that quality level?  :(

I usually watch the Edgar Wallace "mysteries" on Sundays: not very mysterious, but some of the actors that we know of today do look rather young! Quite fun to identify some of the then current cars, too.  8)

What if we simply returned to what we originally signed up for, the Trade Agreement (EEC) and not a political surrender?

My 1938 Morris 12 had a "Jackall" system with hydraulic jacks on each corner, selectable front only, rear only or all together, activated by a pump handle that you accessed via a panel under the front passenger's footwell.
Very clever, we English, back then!  :y 8)

Ron.

That's interesting Ron :y :y

I wonder why the idea fell out of favour? Cost? Health & Safety?  ???


Because it's completely unnecessary. Just how many times does a cheap windup jack in the boot get used to make such a complex(and expensive, bulky and heavy) arrangement worth having? Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

A lesson for our political masters/motoring taxers, Nick? >:(

They were heavy, it's true Lizzie, but also there was the unsprung weight to consider as they were mounted on the axles.
Here's a little more information:-
