Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

Hi all help needed. i have just received my induction pipes back from the rechromers  and i think they have taken to much off the diameters of the pipes while polishing them as they are now a lose fit in the glands i have put new seals in the glands that i bought from the LDMCC. is there a work around or will i have to obtain some new pipes from somewhere.

Cheers Kevin..



          The 'O' rings supplied by the LDMCC would have been to an imperial size with a 1" bore - have a look at Simply Bearings website, there may be a metric 'O' ring with a 25mm bore that is slightly larger in section. Fitting the larger section ring into the end fittings shouldn't be a problem, as 'O' ring grooves are usually wide enough to allow the ring to float.
