Pheww.

I am not feeling such a prat now.

I am going to have to pull the hubs down because I am sure I have melted the seals. They were due for a service any way.
I think I was lucky the grease did not ignite. That would have spoilt a very nice lunch at the Folly.
I shall have to find a better place to attach the cable in future.

Lurcher. What sort of wheel clamp was it? I am sure I would have noticed if my Bulldog Titan was still on.

Hi Nick
I wondered why some people were leaving the pub before 1 o'clock.
I did my usual wave and racking memory thing. I must stop killing my brain cells, then I might remember names and faces.

If I had not had my little incedent we would have met up.

That's a very easy way to crack your hubs.

Thats why I let them air cool and the used the water over the wheel knave plates slowly working in towards the hubs.
Chucking it straight in to 17C sea water may well have cracked them.

Lessons learnt from driving hard and charging through a ford. Red hot discs + cold water = no brakes.

I should add that I also moved the trailer every few mins while cooling to stop the shoes welding themselves to the drums.

There goes the theory that the best way to remove one of them is to drive off and let it dynamically disassemble it's self.
