Please Sir, I hit the back of the hub, not the hub puller.


No I hit the Hub Puller very hard on the screw, I then tighten again and hit it again, very hard. I have broken several Chinese cheap Puller's in this manner. I often let it sit over night and it often releases during the night. Don't suggest You do this but it is how I get the job done. If I fail at this method I remove the backing plate bolts and pull the axle and take it to a Machinist to get the job done. In My situation the Macinist.uses a 50 ton press. I have only had to use the Machinist/press once. I have removed several hubs. I did not want to use the words many hubs as I do not do this for a living, But several. I also use a 2 1/2 lb sledge. Not for the light hearted.

I followed the bidding. Absolutely insane. But there is a message. The Morgan Trad is alive and well in the U.S.

Then go for red or tan. Alternative colors would have been available back then and it is your car now.

If you like cars you should watch the movie. Christian Bale was incredibly good for me. Plus points of the movie: The relationship between Ken Miles and Carroll Shelby. Ken Miles, the introverted but at the same time socially difficult guy. An extraordinarily good character portrayal. The stuffy and bourgeois world of Ford managers at the time is captured very closely. All plus points. I didn't like the somewhat stereotypical presentation of the Italians very much. I also find the racing scenes in the film with Steve McQueen more authentic, even if it describes a different time but that movie wasn't retrospective, it was shot in the real epoch. At that time there were no computers but a 911 in which cameras were installed in front, so that they shoot real racing scenes at 250km/h.

Another plus in the new movie is the way they captured the engine sound. I liked the film all in all very much.
Dillon plays himself as usual and Bale is the total quick-change artist. But both find each other in the movie very well and seem authentic. The relationship is real.
I was just surprised that the film only runs in small arthouse cinemas and was hardly visited half full.

That's not simply an early (pre-2014) M3W that's a Brooklands (of the chrome variaton). #5 of 50 (and according to the information given one of the 13 chromed out if the total 50 cars production. I never knew there were so many "chromes" out there ... )

And you all know what that means ... a 2013 ... Brooklands ... M3W, this must be the pinnacle of ... something! wink

Whilst there’s quite a few compliant engines available, MX5 maybe (?), MMC would have still have to then go through the type approval thingy all over again at a cost of £££££££££.

Playing an electric guitar with a bow in a live performance, pretty good, a talented bunch.

Give it a chance, it starts dull but it does improve.

It is very irregular but every so often it seems to take ages to load a TM page. All other sites seem to function normally so I don't think it is my connection or browser.


Yes it sometimes does happen. Not tonight for me but did so yesterday. Not the end of the world.

I feel I should point out that RTCC didn’t “lose” the franchise, they chose after careful consideration that they no longer felt it economic to be part of the dealer network due to vastly increased franchise costs.

The second Australian dealer did exactly the same for those reasons. A great shame......

Calum mentioned that he was running the Michelin CrossClimate and I also run them on the Plus 4. When I spoke to him about the tyre when we were in Portugal he had just made a long trip in every possible weather condition and was very satisfied with the tyre.

We also have them on my wife's VW Polo and I think they perform even better on the Polo than on the Plus 4. I find them a great tyre in the wet but I have had some tyre squeal when accelerating and turning on to a main road from a side road (90° turn from a standing start) on a dry road.

Both Calum and I had excellent times on the Caramulo Hill Climb. (actually Calum was faster than me and was trying to beat Mario's time. A big ask since Mario knows the course and had race rubber fitted smile )

Judge for yourself laugh
