Re: Fuel hose lubricant

Hello Llessur, is the rubber the correct size, as often metric sizes are said to be the equivelant of imperial but are usually a bit smaller? One trick I've seen but not tried is to block the solid pipe at one end, push the hose on the other with it connected to an air supply, the pressure tends to ...

Re: Pinion height dimension.

Hello Cliff, yes, it's the position that the case is when doing this check. Essentially it means the pinion and crown wheel are properly meshed and the only other adjustment required is to set the back lash. I can make an informed guess using the old and new components but at the end of the day I ma...

Re: Pinion height dimension.

Hello Cliff, I've been away so only now have I got back to this. The height determines how far in and out of mesh the pinion will be to the crown wheel as the teeth are tapered from toe to heel. If the pinion is too high in the casing the mesh will be too high on the teeth flank and conversely if to...

Re: Pinion height dimension.

Hello Cliff, the height I am refering to is between the axle centre line and the pinion top face, this determines how much in mesh the pinion is with the crown wheel. It is set by shims but the workshop manual (I have four) just refers to using a specific setting gauge without giving a dimension. Ja...

Pinion height dimension.

Hello all,

does anyone have the dimension or know where I might get the figure for the pinion height on a 3.45:1 saloon differential.

The figure is not in the workshop manual and just refers to using the special setting tool.

Re: replacement radiator

Hello Michael,

There is nothing wrong with doing what you suggest it's a matter of making up supports to suit, and getting hose adapted to fit.
Certainly that is very cheap for a new radiator.

Re: 123 ignition

Hello Joe,

my car is far from original, although it is altered mainly with Triumph parts. I also value driveability and reliability and that can also be obtained by maintenance.

Re: 123 ignition

Hello Joe, thanks for that chart, but to me, none of those settings is close to the original. I know many people are happy with this system but generally they are fitted to replace a totally worn out distributopr which may or may not even be the correct one for the car? it's not surprixing that ther...

Re: 123 ignition

Hello Matt, the distributor should be a 45D6 Lucas number 41624. No advance below 400 rpm, 1 to 6 degrees at 1200 rpm, 5 to 10 at 1400 rpm, 9 to 14 at 2800 rpm. I am a little surprised at the spread of advance given by this data? This gives 14 degrees maximum mechanical advance plus the 10 degrees B...

Re: Electronic Distributor

Hello Graham, so it's likely that the distributor itself is incorrect? Also note that the vacuum advance also depends on correct carburation, they are linked together as the idea is to allow a weaker mixture than normal at cruise, which also gives a highish vacuum which is then used to advance the t...
