  1. I've used a similar product (Por15) on 3 tanks over the last 10 years. The first tank failed about two weeks ago and I'm replacing the tank as once the sealant is installed it basically can never be removed, which means you can re-seal the tank. Of the other two, one was de-commissioned after two year sand may still be perfect. The last one is still motoring along but is only 3 year sold. Would I use it again? most likely no. I'd rather have a new tank built professionally as it would be cheaper and easier in the end.
  2. I've just had a POR15 tank repair fail after 9 years. The problem is once it's been done it can't be resealed by the same method. I can replace my tank (it's an 80litre car tank) without much trouble or cost but I have 3 other treated tanks and now I'm starting to worry. I must get myself a T shirt!
  3. Jon, This is one of my "go to threads" as the effort and engineering are worth the wait.
  4. Keep at it I'm enjoying this from afar.
  5. I saw the award this morning and immediately knew who was behind it. Well done.
  6. Have you thought about pumping water and soluble oil? The oil should lubricate and prevent corrosion.
  7. Would they be the same as the generators in the tunnels on Gibraltar? The reason ask I was in Gibraltar as a teenager in 1966 and my Father was telling me how to start them with the crank and demonstrated how it was done on a genset. He was a RADAR operator in New Guinea.
  8. Burt Munroe (Worlds fastest Indian) used black boot polish on his tyres to hide the cracks. Maybe he was on to something? Of course being a KIWI he would have used KIWI brand boot polish.
  9. If you mount a recovery effort put me down as labour. I live in northern Sydney so quite close. I also have a Tirfor.
  10. Apply to the Council of the Shire the shed came from as they should have plans on file from when it was built. The other way is just build it and don't tell them!.
  11. Try exhaust flange gaskets of the appropriate size for the copper/asbestos gasket.
  12. How did the painting of the insides of the pipe tubes go?
  13. Rob, Have you looked into using two jacks, one on top of each rear wheel, to jack and hold the guards in place, or sort of in place, whilst you get the bolts in?
  14. After years of watching your Posts I've finally seen a train on the tracks. Good to see it isn't abandoned.
  15. Running a 12volt coil in lieu of a 6 volt coil (with ballast) will make it harder to start. When the starter is engaged the coil gets the full 12 volts so it has a fatter spark. When you release the key it swaps to 6 volts supply to run the engine. I think Clive is on the money with checking exactly what coil you have.
