Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

At least report the item to the auction site and also to leave negative feedback. But right now I would again send an email explaning what your intentions are if they do not respond favourably. Believe it or not I have just done that with an item that arrived damaged. I bought an air horn for our Lo...

Re: Cropmaster or DB 900 color code in USA

You are right about how the same item can look so different just because of the light or pixels. Your pics go from orange to red and I understand why it can be frustrating when trying to show others what you are using. With the colour you screen shot I feel that the post office red/cherry is fairly ...

Re: Cropmaster or DB 900 color code in USA

Nice work gard. I read somewhere that the Massey Fergusson red was close but not the same as Hunting Pink. I now have mine in etch primer and I asked around within our Club about another paint supplier as the local bloke closed his shop. So long story short I rang another guy about 100 kilometers up...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

That's almost right db2d. We have no spray booth here so have to use what is available. what you see on the ground gets hosed again before painting and now it is dry it has set not like concrete but is solid enough that no breeze or air from the spray gun moves it. I can break it up and hose it into...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Cleaned up and painted the wheel wells and next will be some colour but we are expecting rain over the next few days so will wait for a break in the weather.

Re: 990 trouble with 3 point

Re connect your hoses and see if it works again. If so there is a plumbing issue in the way it was plumbed up.

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

G'Day starider, You still have the right to an answer and I would send one more message to the supplier asking again for a positive reply to resolve your problem or you will be in contact with eBay and make an official complaint which will be escalated to an investigation. Unfortunately I have had t...

Re: Removing 885 transmission

I like and use that Permatex Aviation gasket sealer and it works a treat. Been available here in Oz for many years and prior to it being called Permatex it was also named Rolls Royce Aviation gasket cement. If it is not the same product it fooled me, same smell, consistency, colour and bottle, diffe...

Re: 885 Altenator

On re-assembly spray it with some Lanox. this product has lanolin in it and helps to lubricate the connections. I have done this for years and it does not short out.

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Oops, wrong pic, that is when it was almost blasted. This is with the etch primer on. I am pleasantly surprised with this Hi-Chem paint I have been using. So far the primer is bullet proof in good coverage and one time I pulled the trigger on the spray gun by accident and it sprayed a lot of primer ...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

All blasted and now everything is in etch primer except the fuel tank as I am now soldering up some pin holes. The job took 4 hours to blast away all the paint but I found that the anti rust solution works well on sheet metal but certainly not on cast iron parts. They started to get surface rust on ...

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Nothing like having to repair a brand new part, original or otherwise. It is good that you are giving the seller time to rectify the issue at his expense not yours. Hopefully you haven't done the 'feedback' yet so you can let others know exactly what the after sales service is like. Look forward to ...
