  1. Thank you. Any idea how thick they should be please? Is there a reason why they're essential?
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. Bit more sanding and priming

  7. Bit more prepping and priming
    I also tried to seam seal the engine bay but the tube of sealer had different ideas

  8. Is that you being a bit too brutal with the skeleton gun or was the tube cardboard?
  9. Or, needful of a bigger 'ole in the nozzle?
  10. 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

  11. Strangely enough the same happened to me with Tiger Seal. Ended up chucking 3/4 of a tube. Won't buy it again.
  12. Strange goings on
  13. Cut one open to see what the problem is.

    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 :D
