IT’S AS EASY AS ABC

This C-frame socket press from Laser Tools (part number 7987) is a heavy-duty, professional press with a multitude of uses, but its big advantage is that it allows the use of readily available impact sockets to be used as press adaptors and cups, thus making it suitable for removing or installing many different sizes of bushes, bearings and studs.

Six socket adaptors are included, two each of 1/2in drive, 3/8in drive and 1/4in drive, plus two anvil adaptors – use these in conjunction with a suitably sized impact socket from your toolbox for general bush and bearing extraction and insertion tasks.

DOES IT FLOAT YOUR BOAT, ER, CARB?

Manufacturer of the SU Carb, Burlen Fuel Systems has introduced a new range of StayUp® Floats for the carburettors it services. The old plastic-type ones can become brittle over time and the introduction of E10 fuel could really cause them problems.

The StayUp® Floats, on the other hand, are resistant to E10 and produced from military-spec closed-cell plastic that means they are also puncture-proof. This material was specified for military use by the original S.U. Carburettor Company for military applications in the eighties.

Prices vary depending on the carburettor but you can find out more by calling 01722 412 500 or visit More >
