  1. Matt I presume that Gundog means the muffler I fitted on from a 1963 J3 Bedford truck to my Senior. Correct length ,Diameter , 2 inch Inlet 1!/2 out let The Bedford ran a 214 ci engine so about the same capacity

  3. I have a 30inch I bean about 3 feet long
  4. If the steel felloe is bent out of shape they can be trued up by clamping them onto a thick steel plate and heating it with a oxy accetelene torch You will need a proper heat torch as a cutting tip as not big enough I check there it is not true mark the area clamp it down and heat the area the is out of alignment While it is still red hot clamp the bad area down and let it cool All you are doing in effect is stress relieving the felloe back to its original shape
  5. Restoration Supplies sell Penrite Oil which is made to suit our old transmissions and rears Most of the old car movement in Australia use Penrite Oils as they actually formulate and make the oils suitable for our cars

  12. Thanks Rusty and PFitz for your replies I do have a wrench and scales but I am having trouble with adjusting the fronts It seems to be that the front straps that I made are to long
  13. I have got to the stage where I am adjusting the tension on my Watson Stabilator Springs I have remade the straps from a modern webbing and that is OK Reading the Watson Service manual they state that the DB Senior has a 6" lap on the front and a 4" lap on the rears The front are tensioned to 28 lbs and the rears to 18 lbs Can anyone with some knowledge of these shock absorbers please explain to me what is mean't by a ^' and a 4" lap Thanks Ron
