  1. Back to the original thread. Yes you can to it, cleanliness is the main essential as far as I'm concerned along with an understanding of tolerances an good measuring equipment . As an apprentice 60 odd years ago and a boss who was an ex air force fitter these things ware drummed into me. I still remember Tony.

    Lost Nut

    Many many many years ago I worked on side valve motors. Was always told don't drop the valve collets into the sump or you will have to drop the sump to recover them. After a while I thought does it really matter as long as I have a spare one. Can't see what they would do. About this time I owned a Bradford ute which lost one of its big end nuts. This ended up getting picked up by the camshaft and punching a hole in the housing alongside the fuel pump. Tony.

    Think you fellas need to resurrect Mr Brunel. Tony.
  5. Probably better to grind them with a suitable stone rather than cut. Would take off less metal. Tony.
  6. Setting up takes the time, not the actual grinding. Tony.

    Fuel Resistant Thread Sealer

    Used to work in the industry repairing service station pumps. We used to use "Stag" Don't know if it's still available. Tony.
  10. I always use Locktite. Never lost one yet Tony.
  11. POR 15 is the best I know about, apart from galvanising which wouldn't be practical in your case. Where's the water getting in.? Surely the sealant you used should keep it out. Tony.

    Repeated #5 Big End Failure Triumph 6

    All of the above is good to know but it doesn't (to me anyway) explain why No5 is giving trouble. Tony.
