Thank you. Any idea how thick they should be please? Is there a reason why they're essential?
They’re about 3mm thick and are to allow space for the coupling to flex – the steering box flange (item 7) has the spacers built in.
Thank you, yes it makes sense as the column tube pokes out under the flange by about 4mm. Luckily I found my little stash I put in a bag about a year ago
Sometimes I'm organised.
Bit more sanding and priming
Looking good mate

More engine bay prepping and priming
Bit more prepping and priming
I also tried to seam seal the engine bay but the tube of sealer had different ideas
Is that you being a bit too brutal with the skeleton gun or was the tube cardboard?
Or, needful of a bigger 'ole in the nozzle?
The outlet hole was pierced properly
The nozzle cut to allow a decent wide opening
The ring pull section was removed for the plunger
The sealer I did get out was nice and flowing
But I was squeezing with two hands to get it to come out and it was squashing the tube up and bending the caulking gun so I couldn’t use it properly.
Feck knows what was going on
I’ve another two tubes so I hope they behave better.
I’ve never had this problem with tiger seal
Strangely enough the same happened to me with Tiger Seal. Ended up chucking 3/4 of a tube. Won't buy it again.
Strange goings on
Cut one open to see what the problem is.
I could do but don’t know if I can be arsed cleaning up the resulting mess
can get that problem if the sealer is a bit cold, drop it in a tub of hot water, or keep it in yer kecks
Cheers for the tip
Is that where you keep yours?
Would explain a lot...

I actually shook my head at your response @davidoft, as well as raising my eyebrows!
