TOPIC: Make sure that you can perform trailside repairs

Make sure that you can perform trailside repairs 8 years, 5 months ago #4941

While waiting for high temp silicone adhesive to arrive so that I can fit my previously mentioned clutch and ignition guards, I had to remove the CRD sump guard.
4 bolts in total, of which all were in rotten condition being made of pure Japanese cheese, with two way over tight and two loose.
Now you might think that the tight ones are preferable, until the day comes when you have to undo them and they shear leaving you frustrated because they were rotten in the first place.
As you probably have experienced these things rarely happen when you are at home in the comfort of your workshop, and are more likely to rear their ugly heads [no pun intended] when you least want them to eg trail side, as a few members witnessed when a certain someone managed to rip his sump guard off of his 1150
The damage was mainly caused by worn out rubber bobbins failing when I ahem he had a tank trap - sump guard interface, the incident might not have ended the way it did had I he noted the failing rubber.

Anyhow back to the plot,after checking most of the remaining bolts I found quite few in need of replacement / attention, so now I've got to go through them all.
While the bolts were out I tapped out the threads ready for the replacement bolts, returning them back to some resemblance of decent.
The moral of this story if there is one is, you could do worse on a weekend or evening than to run over your trusty steeds checking for the above, we all check our oil etc but how often do we check things like bolts either their condition or torque.

Tank trap, is that what you called it

Good advice though, apart from the fact that Japanese people don't tend to eat cheese because they view it as milk that has gone off. But then again their feet don't smell either.

DanH checks his bolts regularly, not necessarily through choice though I'd be very surprised to hear that a single bolt, nut or screw had been left unturned since he'd owned his Pegaso

Thanks for the info on the Japanese dietary habits; all that from a nation who don't have the decency to batter their fish before eating it!!
