  1. That is awesome news, I am very happy for you both and have my fingers crossed her condition continues to improve at pace. πŸ‘
  2. I need to call Alex, there are still activities going on which suggest this isn't dead yet.

    I'm guessing the Red Arrows will be with you soon, they've just gone over Dorking. πŸ‘
  4. Hi @eeyoreish I'm sorry for hijacking your thread, for the brake pipe work which is all 3/16 the two tools you found on ebay are the same or similar to the ones I've been using successfully (I think, not pressure tested yet) so you should be fine. πŸ™‚ cheers -Chris
  5. But doesn't do 1/4" tubing which is what is used for the clutch on my V8.
  6. I still need to check but I think it is a DIN type which is why the search is hard. However, if it is SAE I'm going to be eating a lot of humble pie. ☺️
  7. Ok, your first comment was helpful, this one less so. I've spent soooo much time searching for components that this one hit a nerve. πŸ€ͺ
  8. Thanks Ian, now I need to check if I need a DIN or SAE, I should have been more specific before. Oh and can you find one for less than a queens ransom please. 😱
  9. I need one like this but for 1/4" pipe, any pointers please.
  10. Hi Mike, Did you get any DM's ? If you don't I can help but I suspect there are others who are closer. πŸ‘ cheers -Chris
  11. Happy Birthday Bibs. πŸ‘
  12. Thanks for the feedback. The body is off the chassis so I don't want to fit the wrong something that is easy to do now but will be much harder to replace once the body is back on, no room for experiment I'm afraid. The 77% increase is more than I'd realised because I've been too lazy to do the maths (or think about it, doh!) and yes more movement too, so now this is starting to make sense. I'll stick with 1/4", thanks. πŸ™‚ cheers -Chris
  13. That is quite an horrific idea. 😱
  14. Hi All, Is there any reason why the clutch pipe on my V8 is 1/4" while all the brake lines are 3/16" ? I wouldn't expect 1/16" change in pipe diameter to have an appreciable impact on the operation of the clutch in terms of pedal feel or operation, am I missing something from my physics education? Finding M10 x 1 male fittings for 1/4" pipe is quite a challenge (especially in stainless steel). cheers -Chris
