Ok all, yes EXTREMELY belated (many apologies) but to formally give nitin_s1 the accolade he won last July :wtf: after a very close run vote with TazzmanianDevil94

(Basically nitin is just so special, that he gets a huge long build up to the announcement - that's my excuse anyway and I'm sticking to it!)

Heat Wrap (yes or no) fgk manifold

Even if it won't polish, is it clean enough to paint? If not, I'd fit the heatshield.

Corona - who is doing what?

Thanks, Tom. Another thing I've been doing is trying to write verse. I recently joined an amateur writers group. We set little challenges every couple of months or so. One running at the moment is to write a limerick about viruses and stuff (Pandemerick?). Here are my first two drafts: This virus ha...

Corona - who is doing what?

One of the things I've done to keep myself occupied was to drag out some old home recordings, including a little tune I put to a William Blake verse. Added to some free-licence footage, it seemed to fit this virus thing, so I put it on YouTube.

Corona - who is doing what?

My son was at a German supermarket checkout behind an old fellow and a family of four. The older man had few things on the conveyor, the family loads - including the shop's last two huge packs of loo rolls. Family dad sees the old chap looking wistfully at these packs, then moves the 'next customer'...

Consensus on poly bushes? (Energy suspension, strongflex, powerflex etc..)

I though that the whole point of poly bushes was that they do not go soft 'after barely a year'.
I wonder what car and what make of bushes he was talking about.

Steering wheel shaking, but only when braking in a straight line

Make sure you look at the entire surface of the rotors (both sides). Any discolouration could be the result of fine surface rust that's not being cleaned by the pads - ie: a slight warping of the disc.

3 engines gone losen will to live

We did over 20,000 miles with an H22a7 that had no balancer belt but was still carrying the extra weight of a non-rotating mass. No problems. I believe the balancer kit really only makes an appreciable difference at low revs, so I can't see that that's the problem. If you're not getting oil to the b...
