Thanks John.  I'll try that green wire earthing test as soon as I have the new fuse rack installed and everything connected up.

It's off.
I kwew it was RH tread as I have a spare loose piston.  But these rods are the best I had so wanted to use those, and the diaphragm was broken.  On Leo Schildkamp's advise made a more or less proper tool and tried the air hammer (gently) to no avail, so got out the big fellow.  This is a Facom hand power multiplier, and it has never, never let me down.  One tick and there it was, once loose it could be easily turned off by hand.  I wonder now how to tighten it again, as it is not locked in any way, and would rather not use loctite since those valves do break from time to time....

Just got word the stub axles are in the mail!

IIRC I held the damper rod in the lathe chuck tightly, locked the headstock, and then made a peg spanner to operate on the "thimble" holes. No reason for it not to be right hand thread, although I don't know for certain. The thread is fine, so can be hard to undo.

And yes, Simon, if you want to replace the damper flap valves, you have to remove the thimble.

If you are sure RH thread - and no reason why not - I would try (induction ?) heat plus impact driver and gently try shocking it ....

Do you have a spare ?? If not , do you ABSOLUTELY have to remove it ?

Today removed the subframe for painting, and made the necessary shim plates here and there.

I also trial fitted the headlamp/wing brackets, to which I made an extension to fir the indicator lamps. 

I then turned my attention to the damper pistons inside the pillars, as the pistons should get removed to change the diaphragm valves.

It is a normal right hand tread but it won't come.  I first made up an alu block to properly clamp the shaft, wich worked well but I found the force needed too big and feared for snapping the shaft (it is hollow)

I then filed two flat side on the wider part of the shaft just below the piston, and made up a proper tool to fit the piston holes, but again, I feel I used about the admissable force nearing to break something and gave up.  A little heat applied to the piston was also tried without avail....

Any tips?

I am negotiating for the supply of fabric propshaft Hardy discs (just the disc not the three legged locating spider) from a UK manufacturer. It looks like they will be £90 to £100 each plus VAT and carriage if I just get two but there would be saving of £12 per disc we can order three or more sets. 4-6 weeks delivery.

Anyone else interested?
