  1. Glad I'm not on, and don't look at FB.
  2. I don't know where this was filmed, but it seems a lot of work to ease a parking problem. Then,, perhaps it was made just because .........! It does limit use of the rear door somewhat. http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/twisting-wheels-parallel-parking-gif-72915?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=08-12-19#post139761 Mike
  3. Many thanks, Retroanaconda. That's exactly the info I was looking for. Mike
  4. Thanks, Stellaghost, but as I said, what I need is the thread detail. Mike
  5. Hi, all, As in the title. My parts catalogue (item 8, p. 435) gives the nut that fits the end of the radius arm as part no. NY120041L, which I read as Nyloc, metric, 20mm diameter, 04 ??, zinc passivated. What I need, please, is some kind person who has a radius arm off vehicle to measure the thread size/pitch, since it obviously isn't 4mm pitch. Many thanks for all or any help. Mike
  6. So, it seems that I'm a little late to the party, but very glad that I've found this wonderful lady's site. Mike
  7. I came across this article the other day. Two wonderful travelers and role models for all of us. https://www.adventure-journal.com/2019/05/meet-the-70ish-overlander-and-her-land-rover-that-rules-all-others/ Mike PS. Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, perhaps it should be in Getting out and about.
  8. Any manufacturer can add all the appropriate numbers to their product to make it appear to be genuine/approved. It's only by going down the path outlined above that you have a chance of confirming its provenance, and even then you can be fooled. It is very much "caveat emptor". Mr. Plod is not going to confirm that the specific manufacturer has received EU certification that his product complies with EU specifications, and at the end of the day, if the widget performs in compliance with the regulations does it really matter? However, gross under performance, eg with sub-standard tyres, could initiate further investigation and possible criminal proceedings. Mike
  9. I haven't seen it specifically mentioned in this thread, but I assume you're already familiar with this site: https://web.archive.org/web/20110519035353/http://ep90.com/index.php?id=28 Mike
  10. Hi, You're obviously on the west side of the pond, but even so, it is very often helpful to include your location on your posts so that you can get the most appropriate help, whether it be geographically based or specific country based. Mike
  11. What's the update? Mike
  12. Well, thank you, all. It looks as if it will be glossy black, if it ever gets blinged. I must admit, Litch, that your "new" engine package looks wonderful. It's quite a change that 20+ years of use achieve. I suppose that it's just like us getting older. Anyway, thanks again for your replies. Mike
  13. I don't usually bother myself with bling, but I'm slowly progressing my ground up rebuild and am considering, and only considering, repainting the engine block. Can someone tell me what colour the block would have been when new, since all trace of paint seems to have long gone. All body panels have been done in their original Alpine white. Many thanks for any and all replies. Mike
  14. First off, introduce your novice friend to the forum and let him/her ask their own questions. They will learn far more then than receiving second hand comments. Regarding the OP post, I will not comment. Mike
  15. I've just measured mine and it's 50mm diameter plus, of course, the diameter of the securing rim. Mike
