Re: FFS

Is it a Brazilian import by chance? I suspect that whoever did the filler was trying to cover up a lot of bodge and rust. Typical of Brazilian imports but not unknown over here.

Re: How do people deal with/fix stripped sump bolt threads?

WHS ^^^^^^ This is the easiest fix. Simply tap the case holes to M8 and fit the stepped studs. Stronger than helicoils etc. but don't overtighten them!

Re: Clearing rust from heater tubes

Pull the engine, get a shop vac with a really long hose and stove it up the tubes until it reaches the cab? Then follow up with a spray of phosphoric acid to kill the rust so it doesn't do it again.

Re: VW Splitscreen Corvair Engine

SO42 handle and catch wanted - found thanks

Need a handle and catch for the drawer in the coolbox unit on my SO42. Button on the right please. Don't need the rod or the latch plate and they don't have to be perfect. Cheers

Re: Non starter..no spark

I'm assuming you have checked that the points gap is OK? Could be the coil but unlikely. Try replacing points as a first step.
