Hello Autoshiters, I'm stuck in a quandary, I want to take the non-self adjusting drum brakes of my rust bucket and replace them with disc brakes front and back. "But why do you want to do this?" I hear you say, well I've only gone and fitted a rover 3.5 V8 with a Renault UN1 trans-axle gearbox to it so stopping is quite important. I have in the past done this conversion but with an off the shelf made for that model of car kit. There is however no off the shelf kit for the H van. So my question is what do I need to measure/considered/know to order the correct set of discs calipers and associated box of OEM crap. I have rung around a few places but all are less than interested in helping and know almost nothing about the parts they sell. I've attached some pics of what is there for your enjoyment.
Hi , my 115,000 mile Rover 45 needs some attention behind the front wheel arch area. I know this is a common rust trap on the HHR . Question is , does this look fixable? I'm in the Leicester area and I'm looking for a trustworthy place to take it . I need to inspect the other side to see if it is the same. I
Hello, this is a subject I touched on in my intro posts. I have a Corsa B that requires welding where the rear springs meet the underneath of the car. While I realise it is the least favorable method of welding for car repair, I would like advice on using a stick welder for the job. My reasons for doing so are 1) I have access to one, all be it untested. 2) If it does not work, it is cheap to replace. 3) The consumables are cheap. 4) They work fine outside, I have no garage. 5) You can get rods for various metals, so it has scope to play around as well. Has anyone tried to do this type of work with one? And can it be done? The picture is of the current issue that needs fixing, but if I can weld, who knows where I will look to go next.
