    Downpipe collar not lining up

    My 2a is def a ball and socket, so the flange will never meet and go flush.

    Sump Gasket removal

    Have got the sump off my truck and have started to clean it up inside and out, the seal is pretty well on and wondering what the best way of getting it off is. Ive started to use a chisel to get under it and off, but there must be a better way Cheers

    Downpipe studs

    Was thinking of something like this. Will add it to the list... Unfortunately one stud decided it did not want to come out, snaped twice after heating / cooling etc, then wouldn't drill out at all. New manifold luckily osnt a massive expense. So will have that by the weekend I hope

    Soaked them for a while and they still won't move. Anyone got any magical ways of removing these, they're rusted out and taking the nuts off when removing the exhaust has damaged the thread.

    Just put the new exhaust brackets on and noticed a bit of oil on the below, is there a seal for this or could it coming from somewhere else the dripping off this?

    Morning all, picked up a 67 2a a few weeks back so thought id pop in as im sure I will be asking for advice as I start the journey of ownership. It is a solid example with a good running engine, juat the brakes and clutch seem a little iffy. Clutch peddle is all fine movement wise, but the return into the slave fro. Gear box is slow at best. Brakes just need a bleed and adjustment to the shoes I think. Here is a pic from yesterday when out feeding Cheers Adam

    Today was able to fot the new sump seal, rocker cover gasket, new oil filter, new fuel sender and new spark plugs. The old fuel sender had rusted solid.. Guess the tank got left open or empty and water got in..

    Just need rope. And a new spring on the drive shaft. Its all working though, and I have the holes on my truck as its had one at some stage in its life. One thing I wonder though is if it's engaged will. It juat go, or is it geared so the throttle has to be at a certain point? Im not really familiar with it if im honest. Cheers Adam
