Re: Wire Wheel Spanner

Funny!
When a key is usually indicated to tighten 1/2" bolts, what do you use to loosen them?
If you are happy with your piece of wood, it's ok for me. No problems at all. :shrug:

Re: Wire Wheel Spanner

I bought the one which cost 169.00€ and it's not a big price for the tool I received.
They are obliged to give a so big torque.
1 - They don't want any responsability if there is an accident.
2 - They say by this hight torque that their tool can resist to this.
Intelligent marketing.

Re: Wire Wheel Spanner

I know steve but the top quality isn't cheap.
I'm always nervous when the "same" thing cost 3 times less price.
I sell quality tools among others and I see almost every day the "same" 3 or 10 times less price.
But it seems to work pretty well for its price so...

Re: Carb Flooding

Hi Alan, I had this and I did exactly the same as you. After some restart I had the same problem. Happyly the engine was on a jig ! I have recheck the carb leaking and I found that I hadn't the correct spring gap and I think that why the plunger sometimes wedged. Never leak after. https://i.postimg....

Re: Which 185 tyre: Dunlop or Pirelli or Michelin ?

I had Pirelli and I change for Michel XVS.
Great difference. More soft and more confortable.

Re: Insulation on exhaust hoses

Hi John,
One think made me stop is that I thought about the rain on the Hose and the possibility to have smog from the evaporated water.
Any experience ?

Re: Sump Plug

Of course As Steve said the oil come to the pump directly from the Sump.
After the pump puts the oil under pressure it goes to the filter AND into the engine.
The hose is for the over pressure.
After the yesterday's party, my ideas are more clear now :mrgreen:

Re: If you have a technical question .........

Hi Steve,
If you look at the books, you'll see that the pump suck the oil directly into the engine oil sump.
The oil in pressure goes through the rubber hose and at last by the filter before going into the engine.
