    Would you mind posting some more photos of your dremmel/lathe attachment? I could use a similar device for a project I have.

    GMC 353 Brakes lock on, some advice please !

    Also check your brake hoses. If the bore of the pipes is collapsing it will give you all sorts of odd symptoms. They may not even show any signs of deteriorating on the outside.

    Royal Enfield WD/L project.

    Nothing changes, I replaced the foam seat base on my Range Rover recently and under the seat I had Volvo electric seat modules, Jaguar Branded (JLR) fittings, FoMoCo (Ford) electrics and BMW electrical connectors. At some point in Land Rovers history, pretty much all these other brand names have had an owner influence.

    If I remember correctly, a lot of the tin ware for manufacturers such as Norton, Enfield and Ariel came from the same Birmingham sheet steel manufacturer and they changed the design to suit the application. Chain Cases and Triangular tool boxes being prime examples.

    Are you wanting the details of both the M2AC and HB? The barrel jacket of the AC or the barrel? The photo you show is of a post war M3 (or at least the barrel and jacket are), it was a revision of the M2 for faster cyclic rate.

    Tank mounted guns ????

    I know where there is a v rare 1937 Bren Mk1 to Current EU spec £500, very underrated and these will be very collectible. Again it’s a shame they’re solid.

    This has some detail http://www.enginelabs.com/news/engine-myth-urinating-on-cylinder-block-improves-durability/ doesnt completely dispel the myth and suggests some science behind it but it does say that it would never happen now due to advances in casting technology.

    I guess it made for cheaper storage too.

    The D and B GPMG was made by a member here and it’s as near to the real thing apart from a deac as you will ever get. He may be able to make a budget version. The Brens are a good buy, shame they are welded solid now.

    Yes, there was an article in one of the BMW mags about 15 years ago about the blocks used in the 2002 bat mobile and later M3. They were left outside for months and staff were incouaged to pee on them to accelerate the stress relieving qualities of time and rust lol.
