As it looks like "BILLY SMARTS CIRCUS" isn't on the telly on Christmas Day anymore.

"Carry on Cortinaering" will be my choice of viewing.

 

Cheers Pete. :thumbup:

Hmmm mesmerising, and I'm not talking about the scantly clad ladies. Could watch that cleaner all night. I really do blame my mother must off done a lot of cleaning and noise making, when I was a whipper snapper. Top work fella.

He said in the vid he bought a bag of ceramic from the people he bought the tumbler from, and then bought a bag of granite clippings from the local garden centre,!!!

thanks lads

 

put some degreaser liquid in the mix

 

granite stones big bag from b n q etc.

 

OR| IF RICH USE THE ceramic TRIANGLES FROM FROST.

 

frosty prices. nearly as much for the ceramic as whole machine hence me buyin granite

 

I don't mind spending if I feel I getting value. and for the price of ceramic triangles I felt it overpriced

 

 

 

 

tumbler itself is not bad price, possibly cheaper on ebay?

 

 

 

 

very very simple idea that absolutely saves time and mess.

 

 

 

 

as shown on vid I threw a right mucky oily rusty cast iron ford water pump in

 

watch the film, it comes out clean

 

word of caution with granite : not sure if it will damage bolt threads so keep an eye on that.

 

 

 

 

on mine I had no bolt thread damage, tested on spare bits first

Is it a world first?

 

I actually managed to separate (without damage)

 

the reservoir from the master cylinder.

 

So ive tumbled the master (as actress said to the bishop) and its ready for gold passivate (my brake company wanted to paint it silver! uhhhhh)

 

ive dishwashered the reservoir and its come up bleach white, with a lovely red filler cap.

 

im now blasting the axle.

 

Ordered some ultra chassis black n primer from FROST

 

waiting for galvanisers to the bolts for (mainly) fornt clip rebuild.

 

Big Red are doing the calipers.

 

Need front shocks and springs and set of poly rubbers

 

flo flex

 

?

 

poly flex?

 

 

 

 

which do I choose guys . gals?

 

pictures in next few days

wooops

 

it will be covered in next video BUT

 

to separate resovoir from master cylinder (on servo mk3 brake setup)

 

I put the whole thing in hot water (scolding)

 

then using upward force and rotation it slowly separated.

 

tried technique for 2nd time on another stubborn old stock unit (rusted up) and technique also worked.

 

once hot, cool the neck area of the plastic so that it stiffens the supporting area into reservoir but leaves shank still warm.

 

rotate and slowly pull upward.

 

take time.
