NORTH WALES!!! Grin , robin its alot of hastle for you but you can try deflating the tyre and rotating it a third to half a turn on the rim, this SOMETIMES reduces the amount of weights required, if you get real headaches and cant sort it get them sent by courier to me and send your adaptor and i'll sort them out for you, good luck

Alas I haven't a photo to hand - but didn't cars of that period sometimes have three studs spread round the rim to bolt on stacks of disk weights?   Am remembering a bit bigger than 35mm film canisters - perhaps its even "containers" for weights.

David,

That's absolutely correct and something I've considered.

James,

Rang your unit yesterday to see if you were up for the challenge but Phil told me that you were away on yet another Lancia related quest!

I've located a carrier who will collect the wheels from me and deliver them to you at a reasonable cost, so, if your up for it North Wales it is!

Robin.

Wheels came back from James during the week and I fitted them today. Then did 40 fantastic miles of vibration free motoring. James, you're a star!  Kiss

The oil pressure was way up there too and the gearbox worked well. Gear changes were much slicker having re-bushed the lever.

It's going to take a while to regain my confidence, can't take my eyes off the oil pressure gauge. Lots of local runs for the next couple of weeks and if all seems well I'll risk Dover and back - 150 miles round trip!

Wonderful to be back on the road with her.  Smiley

Wel  done Robin, James, & friends!

In South Africa some people say "Aanhou - wen" (if you keep trying you will win) while our McDougall family motto is "Buiadh no Bas" (victory before death!) so I know how you feel.

Well, don't wish to tempt fate but Modestine once again appears to be in rude health. 100 mile round trip to Brooklands today with Jim Baldwin from Cape Town on board passed without incident. 500 miles now since the engine rebuild, prop shaft re-furb, gearbox overhaul and wheel balancing so can I please now relax a little?

Lambda lunch in a couple of weeks time and then send the water pump off to have a modern seal fitted and get the water temperature gauge working. Attend to the several minor items that need sorting all in time for a splendid summer's motoring. Like I said, 'not wising to tempt fate'!

Robin, Modestine looked and sounded great today, I am sure you have solved the issues now.

Your exhausts were very close to the ground when you got back on the track from where we were parked today, but they did not scrape,   which was a relief for all bystanders.  Grin
