Braided hoses & Banjo connections

Hi All .

Steve Keil has ask me to send out the information below as he is looking into a problem that Stuart has with the seals on his New  callipers.

if anyone has any spare braided hoses, either new or previously used to measure the thickness of the banjo connection.
You may be aware that Stuart Macfarlane via one of the online forums had reported problems in being able to seal the connections with his new callipers and was so frustrated that he reverted to his previously used items. He offered the new units for investigation which I accepted and he delivered them to me.
Although they are possibly on eastern origin I would consider them to have been well made and perfectly good for use as I have had no problem in obtaining a seal using standard rubber hoses but there is a possibility that if the braided hose union is even slightly thinner than the standard hose, in conjunction with the thinner copper washers that now seem to be supplied and the limited length of thread on the banjo bolt it is possible that insufficient load is being applied during bolt tightening to effect a seal.
Stuart is intending to come to our next meeting with a view to joining MASC.
If you could please ask around it would be much appreciated.
Have a good weekend.

Cars & Coffee Meeting

Good morning All.

I have decided to CANCELL the Cars & Coffee meeting at the Kilton this Sunday 15th July & also the meeting on the 19th August 2018  , There seems to be quite a lot of events & holidays over these two months . So the last meeting of Cars & Coffee at the Kilton Inn, will be September 16th 2018. We hope to try and advertise the venue and meeting place much wider in 2019 , as we still think this could be a great venue to attract many Classic Car Clubs. Hope to see you there in September.

Best regards Neil

Just a reminder it is MASC North West Club night on Wednesday 11thJuly .

But your club needs you !!! so lets hope for a clear Win with out extra time or penalties, giving still time to pop in to the club to celebrate an England triumph !!! . We will still be there till after 10pm

So hope to see you on Wednesday ,   Oh faithful ones !!!!!!!
