I have a electric Clark knock knock gun, but I haven't tested it against such a formidable opponent as that bolt. Book gives a figure of 140 foot lbs I believe . I suspect it ain't coming off without using the factory flywheel locking tool.

As the D16 is a Jap engine and runs backwards I have wondered if it's a left hand thread? :slapme I expect that one of Beef, Dist John or Paul can answer this question?
it can be done with out a flywheel locking tool :D

When did they start using black seat belts instead of matching interior? :S

John suggested;

"If anybody can donate any of the above it would reduce our 'ask' from Rimmers ."

I prepared to donate 4L of Castrol GTX SAE 10-40 if that's good enough? I'm pretty well stocked up :laughing2

PEOPLE NEEDED!

We need some volunteers to help us on one or more of the show days. :)

Simon will provide us with a list of jobs that will be done on the car (some mechanical, some cosmetic) and we need enough people on our stand to help with these jobs and also to talk to stand visitors.
We will provide a free entry ticket and also make sure you get the chance to have a look at the rest of the show too.

Please post here if you are interested.

Won't know which day I can attend just yet as work shifts not been announced yet but it will be either the Saturday or Sunday that I am available.

Hi all, if still needed I would be potentially up for giving a hand? I'm trying to get that Sunday off, but I must warn you I'm not particularly mechanically minded so it'd be more talking to visitors (comes with my day job) and cleaning ha! Would be good to get stuck into things with the club too
