Concrete

Good afternoon. Can anyone recommend a product to clean a heavy oil stain in/on a concrete floor please? The problem with concrete is that it's porous and I suspect that the oil stain will be quite deep.

Re: db18 parts, and other models

419398 are coming up as points for Ford Zephyr and Rover 75 so it's possible they might fit some other six cylinder engines, thus explaining why there just the single set. I have a set of 403670 on my desk and there are two sets in the one box. They would have cost £20 but he was kind enough to sell...

Re: db18 parts, and other models

David, My apologies for failing to read your entry correctly. However, I have checked my parts books (my personal ones that relate to all sorts of parts) and the points for a DE36 are showing as 403670 which appear to be the same as a Light Straight Eight. Are the points you have for a later model o...

Re: DE36 fuel tank

Good afternoon,
Does anyone have any recommendations on the subject of stainless steel fuel tank manufacturers please? My suspicions about the original tank might mean a stainless one is the only route. I have sent a mail to Jay Wolfe in Northampton but I am waiting for the response.

Re: DE36 fuel tank

Thank you all for your suggestions. I have considered the stainless steel route but which company is the best? Another problem is that the fuel pipes are copper and with the increasing use of ethanol in modern petrol perhaps I should consider changing the pipes as well. Apparently there is a plastic...

Re: Pre-selector gearbox over haul

This afternoon I had intended to take the gearbox to be steam cleaned but that wasn't possible. Just to ensure, should they need to turn the 'box on its back I decided to drain the oil. I made sure it was level, undid the drain plug and was rather disappointed to see a stream of black oil fill up th...

DE36 fuel tank

I was going to take the fuel tank to be powder coated and the company asked that I drain and flush it carefully. The petrol came out but moving the tank around produced the sound of something solid sliding about. I put several gallons of water into it and then drained that out to the accompaniment o...

Re: Pre-selector gearbox over haul

Thank you for the information.

I asked Graham Whitehouse for a price and apparently it's £4500 plus VAT which includes bearings, linings and the rear oil seal conversion.
