G60 crankshaft harmonic damper replacement

Or 'vibration dampner' 'crankshaft damper'.... Seems to have loads of different names. The rubber is all cracked on mine and some of it is missing. Initial searches have only brought up 2nd hand items that aren't much better or aftermarket items that I'd have to buy in from Germany. Any suggestions ...

Re: Heater box bulkhead mounting bolts/studs?

Been away for a bit, but finally back to finish the airbox.

My question is what to cover the flaps with?

Option I've seen:
1) Gaffer tape
2) Foam
3) Foam then aluminum tape
4) Aluminium tape then foam

What's the best option and why?

Re: Heater box bulkhead mounting bolts/studs?

Heater box bulkhead mounting bolts/studs?

I've been lucky up until now, but on the way back from Brooklands New Year's Day the (probably original) heater matrix burst. Part way through the job, but having trouble with lower of the two bolts/studs that hold the heater box to the bulkhead. The lower one is so corroded that rather than the nut...
