|Thread: Stuck oil filter|
Years ago when I did my own oil and filter changes if I had a stubborn filter housing I used a Chain Wrench Here my car at that time was a Ford Cortina, If you get the filter off smear the sealing ring with a bit of oil before screwing the new filter up tight this helps to stop the sticking problem.

|Thread: Myford 254 Apron|
The 254 has laminated shims between the left and right hand keep plates and saddle, they look like washers the fixing bolts go through them.
The above refers to the saddle adjustments fitting.

|Thread: Drawing errors for LBSC Maisie|
I built a Masie and found that the reverser frame needs to be moved to the rear of the footplate for a bit more operating room, as in the position shown on the drawing the reverser when in full forward gear is nearly up against the backhead making it difficult to hook a finger around to move the lever back to mid gear or reverse, and that backhead gets hot !!
