blue spots plug remover tool

I see that they're for sale on ebay. Has anyone actually tried turning their plugs out to replace/recolour.
What were the results?? :poke

does anyone in the UK have a faulty/scrap caliper that they would be willing to 'donate' so I could have a mess :?: ;) ;) ;)
cheers

make sure you add some fuel stabilizer to the tank and run it into the whole carbs setup. This'll stop it turning to crap over the winter. IT DOES WORK! and after its run into the carbs top the tank right up to the brim. If there's petrol in there the moisture can't get in. As for coolant...personna...

It may not look perfect when I'm done, but at least I won't be reminded about how the old owner layed it down.

To release the piston, try using a 'G' cramp and wrap it around the outside of the caliper body and then onto the outer edge of the piston. Tighten the cramp, making sure that its pulling square-on. Moving the piston further in sometimes breaks the seal and lets you then remove it easier :D also wor...
