    How do all,

    I've just been swapping filler caps on the 2 stesco's I've got (to see why 1 stops at a different angle making putting in its tin awkard) and over tightened 1 of them with the result that the filler neck is spinning in situ. I'm no good at soldering anything tbh I do have a soldering kit mind (ALDI special ;-) ).... can it be fixed with just a thick gauge of solder wire ,it being brass n brass or is it a bit more complicated?

    also need the jet hole in the coil made smaller as the flame is pants.....

    thanks

    Bung? you mean filler neck? clean clean clean and cleaner? Flux? by preheating do you mean like with meths? You don't need to, but I have done in the past to see if it does any different, it doesn't...
