Getting it to stay up....

Post by Jayboy » Fri Feb 02, 2007 9:22 pm

Hey guys

I know it's been on here before but can't find it anywhere!

How can you keep the front end of a BX at full height without working hydraulics? I seem to remember something about 4 x 2 wood and a 30mm hole?

I need to move a car that p's out fluid from a HP pipe faster than you can feed its thirst

I know you only need a beam between the rear suspension arms to keep that end in the air!

Once saw a GSA "working" on a farm where the suspension had long since failed and the thing was using judicioulsy placed blocks of wood ....

what a sad end ....

Saw a luvverrrllllly DS21 on an "F" today in Cheltenham ... metallic bleu bottom and blanc roof ... floating along effortlessly ...
