Thanks for the offer mate, but I think I'm going to get a pinion to match my straight cut crown wheel. Spoke to someone the other day about getting one done so I'll probably end up doing that.

Couple of updates:

New dipstick after mine totally dissolved!



On the weekend I knew I had a few little jobs to do on her before taking it down to Combe, so you can imagine how surprised I was when after taken her for a quick spin I had a shock when all of the water decided to leak out of the rad!

The old one:



Thank god I had a spare on the shelf! call it foresight!

New one fitted:



I've since fitted the new 12" electric fan on the front using a couple of aluminium mounts rather than through the new shiny rad. I've also got a serious air lock too, though I'm trying to get that sorted in the mean time. Another major problem I've got is that the new rad is a screw on cap and not a push on like the previous, so now I don't have one that fits! Typical!!
