I wonder about using this stuff with wire wheels (though I don't recall if the original poster has wire wheels). My limited experience is that you're just as likely to get a puncture from spoke ends

Hello List! How fast do you drive your Spridget on the highway? Mine seems pretty wrapped out at 55. Can the drvetrain take higher speeds for hours on end? What are your experiences? TIA, ___________

Hmm, book says that the shoe pads cannot be cleaned once they get oil on them. I guess that this is because the pads are of porous material. You'd never be able to get all of the oil out. The oil is

Hello List! A new and unhappy sound has popped up in my '65 MkIII Sprite. When I release the clutch, a distinctive clunk or pop goes off. It sounds like it's coming from the rear, possibly with a bia

I have rust in that area of my '65, though just a few flecks. There is a half-height repair panel sold for this (Moss, VB, etc). From my limited research (on web and local AH club), the best thing to

Thank you Listers for all the suggestions about what might have caused the clunk or pop I heard when upshifting in my '65 Sprite. As many of you suggested, it was due to worn splines on the hubs. I s

I recently bought a 65 MkIII Sprite. How do you fold the top for storing in the trunk? It takes me a long time, it seems to barely fit, it's not easy on the top, and I always get the impression that
