They've lasted awhile now under daily & track use for 5yrs with these covers which is brill but yeah these bearings only have a limited mtbf.On the rallies we regularly , intervals in hours wd40 to clear our and lube the bearings. The WD is a pants long term lube, but clears the #### out. Spherical bearings/rose joints are not suited to road use and need maintaining. I would suggest a heavy grease maybe with a protector cap to limit foreign debris.
On mine tis odd that the drivers offside pillowball has worn loose. Woulda thought it'd be the harder working nearside that goes over potholes, drains, high loaded clockwise tracks, etc.I've probably had them on for say 1k miles, including some hard use on rough rallies... One side is just starting to get a bit stiff. I'll be changing them soon (or selling up )
Ah crap, twas thinking of making it to Blyton on 6_7th June or donnington but that's very close risk of a set back :/That damper won't be here for a while. BC sort their sea order out each Friday and it'll take 2 weeks to arrive from there
The manifold we can create whenever but we'll need a small supply of bends to make do
Sure. We can get everything put into place then PaulAh crap, twas thinking of making it to Blyton on 6_7th June or donnington but that's very close risk of a set back :/
Although it's just a 10min swap.
Turbo mani, we'll need a lasercut head flange, I'll measure how big the ports r and assess the available space. Wanna get it done soon really cos I'll be popping down south on Sun.
Was thinking of making a rear x-brace too.
Shall I pop down tomorrow n over next few days we make a start on those whilst also sorting out how I can help out?
I think it'll be ok cos it's powder coated n never melted the original paint.Could be a bit too strong on the lacquer might be what made them peel in the first place.
Carb cleaner could also work out more expensive in the long run... iirc the fallout was £12 but I've had no end of uses out of it, I've always thought carb cleaner does not go very far.I think it'll be ok cos it's powder coated n never melted the original paint.
Only reason the spare Rota's I got off eBay was already peeling was cos the previous owner had badly hand spray painted it with acrylic cans with poor prep.
Aye at £8 a can and it quickly evaporates away. I'll get some fallout remover after a trip to Andy's tdayCarb cleaner could also work out more expensive in the long run... iirc the fallout was £12 but I've had no end of uses out of it, I've always thought carb cleaner does not go very far.
yeah I was reading into (and probably too much to confuse my head) how/when to ask lass out after breakup, ladys fancying badboy vs good boy (which concluded they initially luved the challenge of a dominant/risky/abusive/exciting alpha male but then settles for the good guys as u say)Man up is just a self motivator, not something to say you are worth less than a 'man' of many man'ness lol. Like we discussed before, tus true that nice guys finish last, but it does eventually pay off.
mindset is a powerful asset, tis just at the mo my confidence had a right kick in the knackers after reflecting on all these past setbacks/failures/rejections this year.I feel the same as you do with regards to stuff, we have had long enough to chat about it at jae. But man, success in life, at a personal level is what makes you awesome. You are great at what you do, and people admire that, you need to believe in what you do, cause everyone will follow. The ladies and men all follow strong characters and you are one, you just need to feel that you are a boss.
