  2. I really wasn't aware that the ARB was asymmetrical and had to go on a certain way up. Could anyone confirm this and indicate how you tell which way is up? My ARB looked flat so I would really be interested to know. Cheers.
  3. Look....you know I like a good head-job. The back of the van just seemed like the obvious place to congregate.
  4. A public forum is not the best place to discuss evading taxes and duties........ I do know that if the goods are for family use then the combined annual allowance may be used quite legitimately. I'm sure many of the parts you need can be sourced in Oz.
  5. Might see you there Phil. I'll be in the quiet camping area with my son. Silver VW Transporter with a mattress in the back. I'm guessing that the weather may not be kind to tents this weekend.
  6. Just in case anyone has a piston ring filer in the Norfolk area that I could borrow for a couple of days. Cheers, Tom.

    Hi All, Would anyone in the Norfolk area have a piston ring filer that I could borrow for a couple of days please? Tom.

    Oil Pick-up Strainer.

    Thought I'd just put a spot of weld on the top of the nut. Getting rid of the resinous crud is the bit that takes the time.

    Feel for your frustrations. Very difficult to find someone you can trust with these engines outside the Lotus circle. Though, admittedly, it's not exactly rocket science is it?
  10. IMHO, there's the smell of BS in that shipping quote. My whole car only cost $2700AUS to ship to the UK. They've quoted you for air-freight I imagine and therefore by size....the longest dimension I'm guessing. Who are you purchasing it from? I'm about to move back to Coffs Harbour NSW in the next few months. My stuff won't get there before Xmas though. Though it seems you've got plenty to be getting on with! PM me if you like. Still amazed at that quote. It's not even a very big roof.

    How did you get on with this Paul?

    Take it to an expert. Cheaper than a rebuild with a new set of pistons.
  13. Have just fitted a set of AVO's from LotusBits. Fit is good. Don't know how they will perform yet but historically AVO has been a name I can trust. Am re-using the springs. You are going to have big postage costs so I'd be making a long list and getting all the stuff sent together. Short term pain....long term..er..pain?
