Re: Tin Bum Tuning - Short Stroke fitting.

That's the effect of the short stroke nose extension. More preload needed to try and make power. I can almost guarantee that with a standard spring, maybe 2 washers and no short stroke you'll be back up to 11 ftlb+ Just out of interest why a maccari seal instead of the standard item? Timmy, I feel ...

Re: I feel his pain

The reason I suggested the water is, a fellow I know had the same thing happen, but it was a large black and white rat. He finally got it with the water, but it took 3 days.

Re: I feel his pain

Re: TX200 mk2 silencer removal

It has some glue holding it as well as the grub screw. A little heat is needed to break the bond. Make sure that the barrel isn't turning as well. If it moves, it needs to be removed and re-glued. Unscrews just as a normal bolt or nut does. A loose silencer thingy on a MarkI or MarkII will affect ac...
