No. Can't help you there.



But while we're at it, can anybody help me find an OEM left-side muffler bearing for a '48 Skoda Octavia?



I want it to be concours when I''m done. This car is sweet.

The distributor is in West Twist, Indiana. They stock parts for the Skoda, Denbeigh Super Chauvinist (only the Mark III Saloon) and Stumpenbackers - all years.

No, but I have an oakum packing for a Tatra C-30's half-shafts.



It's on the shelf next to the Hispano-Suiza throttle-windshield wiper cable.

Default Water Pump Bracket Replacement

You probably have to replace the mounting bracket as well. Lift with your knees, not your back, as it probably weighs about 200 pounds. The cost for the new pump and bracket would be a few hundred $ less than the 2003 price of the scooter, as the distributor is probably trying to get rid of his entire stock of unreliable brackets, which is to say the scooters themselves.

Could you drop by to help me with the Lagonda's chain driven tranny? Captain Hastings is unavailable today as he and Priot are on a case.

I'll pop over later in the Delage to pick you up. Do you have a 3 1/5 x 16 11/64 spanner btw?



Pip pip.

You have a replacement waterpump? Unbolt the part that looks like the replacement and bolt up the new one.



Did it fail or is it leaking? If it's just leaking then run the coollant total loss. Just refill it when it gets low and use cheap DI water about a buck a gallon.



When if fails to the point where you're tired of messing with it haul it back to the store where you bought it and leave it right in front of the entrance.
