Re: 1973 Ranchero brake pads wanted

Send me a tracing of the outline to hirkham@intekom.co.za

When you go back so far, especially with Fords, there are many possibles.

Cheers, Doug

Re: Mk3 Cortina master cylinder

I gather that you don't have the old one? New one's nowhere to be found - find one in a scrap yard and refurbish it.

Re: Carburetor cleaner wanted!!

8O No member ever seen or used this chemical????? :?: Rassie. When I worked at Tune Up Centre in Joburg we used it with special buckets and tins for stripping the carbs - it was called Magnus.

Re: Never take your health serious!!!

Sterkte Rassie. I've also had kak with my feet for the last four years - no circulation. They wanted to cut them off but I said I'd grown attached to them, leave them alone. Have lots of pain, but still got feet.

I'm just lucky that Gary (my only) had a passion for bikes and cars and ended up in the trade - what's left of it. At least he knows brakes backwards, but in this day and age you have to spe...

Re: New Coil Springs needed

I am needing new coil springs for the Chev. Replacing shocks hasn't helped much with the wallowy ride, and it seems as if one of the springs has actually collapsed. A 'wallowy' ride would not be caused by the springs but by worn out shocks. *****My apologies Scar - only saw later that you had repla...
