Re: Carburettor banjo bolt sealing

If the seals / washers are new and in good condition then they should seal at the connection points mentioned although you did say you had sonme concerns about the surface smoothness [ and ability to be sealed ], due to recent electro plating.

The I [Amperage] is governed by the Resistance R in DC systems

hope this helps

Re: Wiper splines, Spindle dismantling, Bizarre Shapes ?

I cant help with removing spines, but I have noted those angled off spline heads
