Oh boy, Winabby. I tried to do what you said below and it exploded and posted giant pictures that I cant even get on my screen. And I can't get to the edit button to delete them. What now?

Never mind. I was able to get to the edit key and delete the monster pictures. So how do I get pictures to the correct size to post? Sorry, I'm sure this is not intended to be a tutorial site, but I've not done this before.

Awesome work and doubly appealing to be able to convert the relatively plentiful standard units to S spec.
I'm home now and will be up at the hangar tomorrow to find my spare unit!

nileseh, fantastic research and work, full credits and kudos mate, lovely work.

It it also a credit and testimate to the quality of these units in the first instance too, that as we all know, after 50 years, so many of these are still in working order and those that are not are for the most part, now rebuildable.

Rubber is a natural item, and dry out over the years.

I would recommend that the rubber is sprayed each Autumn, with a thick layer of silicone - preferbly the type that leaves a thick greasy surface.

To get access to the top of the front units = just fit one of them thin pipes from a waxoil can, and insert where the Hydro hose goes in.

I would also recommend that the car is put on axle stands, when not used for longer periods (like this summer :roll: ) etc etc.

Last one is a question for the specialists = even if the car is on axle stands, are the system still under pressure,
would it not release some of the stress on the rubber, if the system was depressurised during winter ?

I had the same problem the other day and managed to re-size some 'monster' pictures here (see link below), then re-uploaded them to Imgur for sharing:-

Before posting your images I resized them using some free PC graphic viewer software that's basically a cut-down version of Photoshop, called Irfanview. I'd recommend this tool to anyone needing to resize, crop, rotate, recolour or perform a bunch of other effects on an image or a video. I've been using it for over a decade.

The resize-photos online method mentioned above works well.

An alternative is this stuff:

This stuff is incredible, stronger than welding. That, combined with a circular clamp similar to an exhaust clamp would be fine - maybe three or four equidistant spot welds for belts and braces. the two halves would not be coming apart again though.
