Reopening a relevant thread gives access to a host of relevant replies so saves those posting having to rewrite time and again. My veiw is reopening a relevant t...

Re: Seized or Stuck Brakes 780

If both pedals flop back and forth, as in your first post, then the cross shaft isnt seized unless the pin fixing the left pedal to the cross shaft is missing or broken. The left pedal is fixed to the cross shaft and if the left pedal is free to move then the cross shaft is fine and I wouldnt use an...

Re: Single Acting Hydraulic Ram

If youve got pistonless single acting cylinders where the hydraulic fluid surrounds the entire ram, then there wont be/cant be a vent. If the ram has a piston on the end then yes there needs to be a vent. If your ram is only extending part way then it may be worth disconnecting the ram to see if it ...

Re: DB996 Query

The list of paint colour codes only shows Orchid White being used up to 1985. Maybe the Power White was used after that??

Re: Correct gearbox/hydraulic fluid for 1964 DB 990

OP asked if a 996 can take a rear digger and the answer is yes. Whether its bespo...

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

Back of the 996 manual lists a rear digger as an option so fairly sure the 996 is designed and able to take a 3 point digger.

Re: VAT Receipt for parts

If youre buying from a VAT registered business, and I guess the likes of DBparts/Barcley Williams are, then Im pretty sure HMRC say they should be issueing a VAT invoice in a specified format. Maybe a call to accounts to remind them of this will get the result you need. If you just need a receipt to...

Re: If it's not one thing it's another. 885 starter drive #

The intertia/bendix/co-axial starter was also widely used on cars of the same era and earlier. Seen a few shot flywheels thanks to the battering the inertia starters give them.
