Re: Clunk no click

Its usually because they get full of fluff and debris not because its worn out. If you take it to pieces I would bet that the holding spring is clogged up, a clean with some brake or carb cleaner and a squirt of wd40 should get you sorted at no cost.

Re: Gold Excel for sale

Dont knock it lads, if he gets close to what he wants its good, provided its been sorted for the new owner. Been undervalued for far too long. Im also sure that there are a few of us on here who have spent that much over the years, and more.

Re: Cam Carrier leak.

When mine did this a quite a few few years ago and I found a couple of loose fixing bolts and when I took the carriers off the threads had stripped, I dont know why or if a P.O. had overtorqued them but a couple of helicoils sorted the threads and new gasket sealant stopped the leak.
