So you have stuffed the thread on the bolt.

Get a nut and hacksaw a cut into it, when you screw this on to the offending bolt it will clean it and maybe fix the thread burr.

:)
I love handy hints.

Check this ---> LOWEST FUEL PRICES <--- Check This

Hey Peoples,

I've been a member of a free web based service that monitors fuel prices through the metropolitan outlets Australia wide.

That service is just about to get a whole lot better.

Up until now they have been only monitoring ULP prices, but in two weeks time they begin covering prices of ULP, Diesel, LPG, Premium and LRP! This is a result of feedback collected from members. These guys listen to our needs!

186 dizzy

Hi all,

I have a 186 (red) that has started running really rough (suddenly) I have cleaned the carby (weber 32/36) etc. I have 1cm of play in the dizzy rotor cam .. I am guessing this is too much? Also, how do I tell if i have the lucas or Bosch?

Does anyone know a good place to get a new rotor gear (should it need one) in western syd? What are the chances of the engine side cam being damaged?

BEWARE OF BMW DRIVERS!!!

Driving to work this morning, I looked over to my right and there was a woman in a brand new BMW doing 90kmh with her face up to the rear view mirror putting on eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple of seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup! It scared me so badly, I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the cereal bowl out of my other hand.

Astra Vibration

Hello, RM your doing a great job.
Well on to my post/problem. I have a little Astra/Pulsar and I'm experiencing some violent vibrations with speeds from 80kmh towards the 100 mark.
I have inspected the wheels, and balancing has not seemed to have fixed this problem. There seems to be no unusual wear from the tread and there is no balooning.
I have had the automatic transmission serviced 8000 ago and "Victorian Diff & Transmissions" in Ringwood of Cochranes St, quoted the tranny as "in good order." (I spent $75.00 gorillas inc GST) not bad considering "fluidrive" wanted $109.00.

HiHo, The server on the cable was moved on friday, thats why it was down. Still having some DNS issues(patience grasshopper) but it does seem like that is only me, one day I'll upgrade this when I get some spare bits.
I haven't got as much done as I had hoped by this time, just go by the box on the right that says .: oldholden :.
