    Weeping Silicone hoses. Any tips?

    I'm getting used to regular coolant changes as I experiment with my car. I use silicone hoses and mikalor clamps and beaded pipes. Never used gasket sealer additions and no leaks. However they do take several heat cycles to seal. I recommended to run the engine and let it cool several times to let everything move and contract before you get full seal. Mine takes 2 or 3 goes tightening progressively in different places as everything settles. Rubber is better as it hardens but a pain to get off again whereas silicone is a cinch. Even if you tighten one hose properly it can loosen after something else moves. Don't overtighten. Use your smallest ratchet or a screwdriver attachment works best. You shouldn't need it too tight. I nearly sent my radiator back for leaking before I loosened my hose clamp..... Good luck and just walk away if it's too frustrating

    Battery kill switch on road car?

    However. My car still has steering lock and proper road car key.its been added later for easy kill switch use for track issues and long term battery preservation. All could be added later as Adge says

    Battery kill switch on road car?

    Yes exactly. It has a rubber weather proof plug cover for use when you remove it when parked.. I use a Velcro tether to the stalk of the mirror in case it ever came out whilst driving......

    Mine is on the scuttle on drivers side under the mirror. I can reach from drivers seat when belted and anyone can reach if I have an accident....

  14. Guys . Ordered a 32mm diameter 90 degree bend pipe at 300mm long ,but unfortunately ASH have no stock and no re order date. Any alternatives you can suggest? Did an eBay search and only found AP who stock ASH....... Happy to source from eBay or somewhere near Northwich. Would like stainless ideally but happy to listen to alternatives as it might only be temporary use. It's only a £10 part so don't want to go too far. Thanks Jon

    You're probably going to need a Halfords headlamp bulb fitter with long fingers and flexible joints. They do amazing things for bulb fitting. But it's probably just a photo issue.
