The Glyptal, an Insulating Alkyd Enamel Paint using a resin of glycerol phthalate, first made by General Electric in 1926, was used both inside and outside the ...

Re: Garage Flooring

Yes, I had an epoxy paint and it was treacherous when wet to the point where I felt it was life threatening. I ended up covering the floor with the studded plastic tiles and they have been great. Be aware though that tyres leach the black dye added to natural rubber so you end up with black patches ...

Re: Evans Waterless Coolant

There is no problem going from Evans coolant to water/anti-freeze - it is only the other way around that needs careful (and expensive) preparation. From their web site: "In the event that there is significant coolant loss from the system during operation and no Evans waterless coolant is available t...

Re: original vintage luggage

My guess is the luggage was available from about early 1962 on-wards but discontinued after a few years due to low demand. It was offered/approved by Jaguar as their “Airport” luggage but was not quoted as an option in any of their literature. They were made by an outside company, probably J. B. Bro...

Re: Blower motor spindle

The bush should come off the shaft - it looks to be seized in place on yours. If you can get the bush off you may be able to reinsert it into the housing if you can get the spring clip out (I think it is peen'd in). The shaft rotates in the bush which is held static in the housing by the clip.

Good luck with that! If you are talking hundreds of thousands of pounds then it may be worth it but for £12k life is too short. :thumbdown:
