    Angle grinders?

    I'm just about to write a letter to Santa asking for a cordless angle grinder for Christmas. However, I'm not sure whether to ask for a 4.5" or 5" type. My corded grinders are 4.5" and my stock of discs etc. is sized to suit but I can't .really see any reason why I can't use 4.5" discs on a 5" grinder so the bigger size might be a more versatile choice. Am I missing something?
  2. Thanks for the replies. I do have a Series clutch pressure plate so I should be able to use that to get the dowel PCD and diameter from that and knock up a drawing. I believe that the people that used to sell the adapter kits (Phillips?) also supplied a drawing for the flywheel mods and I was hoping to get a copy to save a bit of time.

    I wear prescription safety specs and a full face mask for grinding. Glasses friendly goggles on their own didn't stop me having to make two trips to the eye hospital (one the day before my wedding). A full face mask is a must after having a 9" disc disintegrate in my face. I was wearing a mask so it was a complete non-event. I've seen pictures on Pirate of different outcomes.
  4. I'm in the process of getting parts together for a V8 conversion and I need to get a Range Rover flywheel drilled and dowelled to take a Series clutch cover. The bloke who is doing the job for me has asked for drawings. Do any exist? If anybody has the dimensions, I could create the drawing myself. TIA

    12V Battery trickle charger

    I had the same problem with the Aldi Cetek type chargers switching off after a power cut. I replaced them with a couple of these... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NCS-MOTORCYCLE-SPECIFIC-SMART-12V-ACID-BATTERY-CHARGER-OPTIMISER-MAXIMISER-/200905657536?hash=item2ec6e90cc0:g:vOAAAOxy86RSVVMx They do the job.

    V8 Rocker covers

    I have them on my TR7 V8. As already said, you just need to sort the breathers out. The oil filler is in a different place too, from memory.

    Very poor service from supplier

    I once ordered 3 brake hoses from Paddocks. They charged me for 300. Quickly sorted though.

    Trailer studs

    I could probably get them to Perth in a couple of weeks, but it would still cost you the GB postage plus the post from Perth to Melbourne. Hardly worth it for the sake of a couple of quid.
  10. I bought a £50 Chinese jobby of Ebay and it does loads of stuff. I can even use it to help bleed the brakes on my car/ Looking at it now, on the Corsa, it will scan and reset codes for engine, brakes, instruments, climate, gearbox, immobiliser, restraints, multfunction (park assist, power steering, radio, trailer interface) and service light reset.

    OT But What The Hell Is This?

    Getting in, and especially out of, an armoured vehicle fast is a big safety yes-yes.

    Rover V8 help.

    I wouldn't wrap anything around your piston stop tool. Sod's law will dictate that, whatever you use, it will fall off inside the cylinder. Unless you turn the engine over on the starter or use a starting handle, you will,have to work hard to damage a piston with a bare bolt.

    Rover V8 help.

    Is the little TDC pointer thingy on the front cover in the right place?
