Re: diff nose hights

Me too. One other thing I forgot to say I don't get any vibration when my car is first used, it only starts to develop into its vibe frenzy when it warms up, usually after 5 minutes of driving :roll: Could that be because the rubber mountings are better at absorbing vibration when cold, but allow m...

Re: Surface rust

Hi - I noticed surface rust in the guttering, what should I treat it with to stop it getting worse? Believe it or not Vaseline!! We had an elderly lady customer spread this on her Triumph Herald door because it was rusting and as Vaseline was water proof she thought it wood do the trick, we all jus...

Re: Door adjustment

Nice to hear of these scuttle techniques being used for technical adjustments and not the spoon dolly and 4lb hammer or small socket procedure :lol:

Re: diff nose hights

My next plan of attack is to alter the engine mount height and experiment with these. I tried another manual overdrive gearbox thinking it was that, still no change. :?

Very interesting read through the different heights and vibration status, I to have this annoying issue albeit have changed everything in the car apart from the body shell and still I have the vibs which start at around 55 mph and disappear after 65 mph. New tyres, hubs, diff, nose piece, rims, re-b...
