    A simple one I posted on another thread, for vacuum cleaning the dirt, sand and oil from around the spark plugs, before you undo them. For the RB30 spark plugs, the inner diameter is 20mm and the outer 23mm. I used electrical tape as a seal for the vacuum pipe.

    If you have trouble using the small tubes of silicon for gaskets, I have found a a way to make it easy.

    Keep an old silicon cartridge with the plastic plunger removed and the threaded bit cut off flush with the end.

    Cut it to a length that allows you to push the tube's nozzle through the hole. Use a pair of pliers to fold the end of the tube enough to allow it to slide freely once you have placed it in the cartridge.

    Adjust the plunger of the silicon gun to hold the tube.

    Be careful not to force the trigger too hard or you may rupture the tube, especially if the nozzle hole is very small.

    ... works a treat in the Bathroom for KY Jelly, Colgate Toothpaste and Hemorrhoid Cream tubes as well.

    Pays to ALWAYS double check what is loaded in the Gun before use tho and it is considered poor etiquette when visiting others to ask why they prefer the longer nozzles

    I'll see if I can post up some Vids on correct techniques for use for you blokes to check out

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    It is difficult to video when using the product(s). I find it works better if you fix the camera on a stand and have another person as a model while you do the injecting. just sayin.

    What ailment do you suffer to need to use all those ingredients at the same time?

    Oh, those ingredients, well, when used in the correct order of KY, Preparation H and Colgate you can painlessly cure your 'roids and with regular use have an arsehole up to 3 shades whiter

    Got a piece 90mm bright steel machined up to make a drift for the front hub bearing seals. Only $15 dollars at a small engineering shop.
