Re: Door catch strap

Actually Ted, I think the rear ones are not handed but the front ones are, so 'only' 3 different types! Not really relevant though because, as you say, the RH front is like rocking horse droppings anyway!

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: overdrive relay

As an aside, i think fitting a relay to a 'J' type overdrive car is a good idea. The 'inrush' current when the overdrive is operated is quite large and I expect well beyond the rating of the gear knob switch. I have had these switches fail in the past, due to (I think) excessive current! Just a thou...

Re: Rocker shaft

And don't forget to fit new small 'core' plugs in each end of the shaft - after cleaning that is!

Cheers,

Re: UJ confusion

Hi Kev,

The drive shaft ones are bigger than the prop ones, so maybe 116 is one of those. I'm pretty sure 115 is for the prop though.

I'd be guided by CW to be honest.

What's gone - drive shaft or prop?

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: exhaust manifold

If it's that bad, I'd be tempted to replace it with a good S/H one. I wouldn't expect it to be too expensive.

Remember that Mk1 and Mk2 exhaust manifolds are different....

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: UJ confusion

I used to know all these numbers, but time has degraded the grey cells! The ones with grease nipples do have a different number. GUJ102/103 and GUJ115/116 all ring bells, for the drive and prop shafts, with and without the grease nipples. Remember that the Stag propshaft ones are bigger than on a 20...

Re: Engine removal

I usually drop the whole lot down in one go as Alan suggested. I've also split the 2 and taken them out one at a time, but always down. Yes, you have to remove the front suspension, but I think the height you need to lift them up is probably quite a lot and maybe more than a normal garage roof! Neit...

Re: Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

These measurements came from a TR6 'CP' engine I have here. I think that all 2.5 blocks were the same. However, I stand to be corrected!

Cheers,

Re: Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

Hi,

Length of dipstick tube from the boss on the block to the tube open end - 104mm

Distance between the cup on the dipstick (where the felt washer is) to the HIGH mark - 267mm

And to the LOW mark from the cup - 291mm

Does this help?

Cheers,
Mike.
