I'll Ask the audience, thanks Eddie.

OK, player. "Audience the Q is" Why are the posts ignored on this forum?
A- It's not worth the head-ache.
B- It seems that slagging those who know a little about the subject may be of importance.
C- I can't pay my phone bill is not a tech question.
D- Blah blah blah.

I am off this forum. Bye

My name is Peter Smolenaers, I have nothing to hide, I enjoy old cars, I enjoy a good chat.
I am involved in a few forums, and some are way bigger than this, some are smaller. I am even a Moderator of two such forums. I have never seen such behaviour, and I wish not to voice any opinions other than goodbye.
I wish the forum all the best and hope wounds heal. I will come back for a look in the future and see what has progressed.

Decisions, Decisions

I own a HG premier and have been rebuilding it for several years, the inside is fully decked out with race seats etc. The running gear is yet to be changed but its the bodywork i need advice over, there are several patches of rust in the usual areas and am wondering if the rust replacement sections available are worth buying? I figure this would be better as no bog would be in the car. Also would a good weekend panel beater be able to perform the task of cutting and replacing the sections of rust just as good as there expensive counterparts.

Oil Pressure

Ok I'm confused, and scared. I don't believe that oil is getting to the top of my engine (253)..so to test this i borrowed an oil pressure gauge. Screwed it into the oil pump, crank the engine and it's running but there is no reading of any pressure on the gauge. When I removed the gauge, quite a lot of oil comes out the hole. Doesn't this suggest there is oil pressure????? The engine has been running for about a total of 5 minutes since I rebuilt it, and there is no evidence of oil making it to the rockers. Would it even have had enough time for oil to make it to the top of the engine? I did prime the oil pump with vasoline before I assembled it. So, I need some advice please, before I cook and seize my engine.

GTS Mirrors

Hi,

I am looking at purchasing a set of GTS Mirrors, and after having little to no luck I have found someone selling a set.

My question is, are GTS mirrors identical on both sides? The ones being sold seem to be different. One left/hand one slightly narrows as it nears the outer part, the right/hand mirror is consitent in width throughout? The right/hand mirror seems non-genuine to me, although the foot is the same crome c style joint.
