Yes I read about the Antifreeze on Fifers website..does anybody know how he's doing ?
I've got 2 spare gearboxes  Grin so hopefully i will sort it easily,I'm assuming I just unbolt the end piece and go from there ? Sleeved ?
Funny you should mention Harley..I've pinched the M/C off my Chop..which fits perfectly but may need to grind down some of the larger diameter tubing to move it further along?

Unless the output shaft bearing needs replacing, it's just a matter of unbolting the prop at the gearbox end, then taking off the output flange (big centre nut with lock tab) and carefully lever out the old seal.
There are special thin wall sleeves available that can be pressed onto the flange if it is too worn where the seal rubs.
Not heard from fifer for a while.
If you are changing to a bike master for the front brake, it's possible that you may need a smaller master for the rear.
Lack of brakes after the trike has been standing may be caused by the master cylinder being mounted low down. Residual pressure valves stop this from happening.

The master cylinder for the rear will hopefully be the same one I've got,I was thinking I may need a residual valve.ive used them before..

More than welcome mate only one of the many that have said  “we will come and see you “ that actually did, and I know the financial drain it was, so when you said you needed a trailer for your eventual move it was a no brainier cos I know you wouldn’t accept cash for doing a favour. Enjoy the trailer and getting it modified into what you need.

Yesterday I took my trike to a small company that specialises in tuning old classics..( but they don't work on old boys Grin) as recommended by Andy Wink.. Based on the A272 petersfield road not far from Winchester ..
You need to prebook because they can get busy..although he was quite yesterday ..has I turned up an Austin 1100/1300 was pulling out for a test run..it certainly sounded sweet and bought back memories..Tom the Owner likes you to get there early for the ambient temperature ..
We had a break in the weather and managed to unload the trike in between the showers..so while Tom and his son set about tuning it..we had a cuppa and my brother supplied the biscuits ( ginger nuts)
Once he finished..he explained what he'd done..etc..modified the carburettor needle..readjusted the settings,and the timing..better plugs..giving me an extra 12hp  Shocked certainly felt the difference when driving it out of his drive ( uphill) back to the truck..

He told me to just use BP top grade fuel or Esso..and to use the Additive he supplied..he also said this additive would negate Ethanol in any future Fuels?
So needless to say I highly recommend these guys..not cheap but worth it..Aireytuning .com
I wanted to take some pics of the guys working but it was raining.. Embarrassed

A 12 horse power gain's pretty good when Reliants only have 40 to start with Smiley
I think they added 12 to mine too. Felt like a completely different vehicle when I rode it home.

Definitely did..hence the brake system redo...I've put a residual valve into the back brake line and it feels better even without bleeding them..tomorrow I'm running new braided line from handlebar M/C to front caliper..so fingers crossed
