Re: Great way to carry and handle oil

These had a 1/2" x 6" Poly tube attached. Oddly I cant even see any on sale ATM, perhaps since most vehicles are now front WD filling Diffs has gone out of favour.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

The ones we get have a plug for the end of the tube, and the main cap screws on. Haven't got one ATM, or I'd post a pic.

Re: Great way to carry and handle oil

This side of the water (and yours too, no doubt) Gearbox and diff oil comes in squeezy bottles which can be re-purposed for just such a usage. They tend to be a bit tougher than w/up bottles and have a long spout.

I'm now looking with my tablet instead of the desk P.C. and I can see potatoes ;) and pics on here. This was the only thread that I noticed the missing ...

Re: Valvegear Simulation Software

Nothing bad about it. It might just as easily have been a new find. Chances are if you did a search on here, it might not turn up.

Re: Valvegear Simulation Software

Yes Tom, it's been around a good while and is fairly well known. It has been mentioned on here in the past. Seems that most who try it find it useful. I will get that far, one day in the not too distant future, I hope. :D

Re: S.L. Falcon.

Thanks Jack, it's good to have as much of the story as possible. The guys at the Museum, that I spoke with, didn't know who was building the new engine.

The receiver connects MP1 to MP2 (backwards), among them LP. People that aren`t familiar with that const...
