Re: SP Handbrake draught excluder

The service manual refers to a 'drought excluder' secured by 4 screws and a metal frame. The parts manual refers to a 'handbrake lever leather gaiter', with no sub-listings of components used to secure it. My original leather gaiter (replaced in 1973) has 3 screw holes along its outboard base flap w...

Re: Possible scam sale

The car looks nice. I think it's probably on the level, perhaps he could be contacted outside of the classified advertisement. Have a read about the seller in this article: • Nov 17, 2016 - Chuck Carlson, a logger in South Dakota, talks about having one of the most dangerous jobs in the country for ...
