I've also put this on the other forum.
J type spacers, inch and half long. bolts two and three quarters long.
Tony.
Thanks Tony this is very close to what CW is listing for the auto box at 1.3", he doesen't list the length for the J type. I think I will stick to the ones I have.

Spacer Tube gearbox cross member for ‘J’ Type

Been searching this on the forum but can't find the definitive answer.
What length do I need for the Spacer Tube gearbox cross member for ‘J’ Type Overdrive.
Are they the same length as the BW65 Auto that I am swapping out?
Shorter or longer?

More on prop shafts

Now I find I have a shaft the correct length. The thing is its an early style shaft with inboard retaining clips on the unies. and doesn’t have the rubber insert at the diff end. The unies. are in good condition and are the greaseable kind. So what is the benefit of using the newer style shaft keepi...

Re: Propeller shaft length

Thanks Dave B I had since found this info.
It would appear that my BW65 shaft is around 95mm too long for the manual with the O/D.

Propeller shaft length

I am changing from a BW65 to a manual O/D on my 1977 2500TC. It would appear that the propeller shaft will be too long. My books say there is about an 8.5mm difference between the auto and the manual but this is for the BW35. I have it set up on a trolley with the front and rear sub frames attached ...

Re: Just another Thrust Washer

Yes those are one new spare and one from the past set up.
I am awaiting two from the US which should give me .005.
As far as I can tell Custom Thrust Washers are the only place that will sell an unmatched set.
Thanks for the replies.

Just another Thrust Washer

I have one TW at .092 (marked STD) and one TW at .097 (marked .005) Wich gives me a float of .22mm or 0.00866" Just outside the recommended tolerance. So I need a +001 or +002, but they don't seem to be available from the usual suspects. There is a place in the US http://www.customthrustwashers.com/...

Auto oil cooler as engine oil cooler?

I am converting to the manual box. So I am left with the auto oil cooler now being redundant. I have a spin on oil filter which seems to have provision for an oil cooler. The question is can I drill and tap and fit outlets to the spin on oil filter body and use the auto box oil cooler as an engine c...

A trap for unwary travellers.

I am replacing my 2500TC auto with a manual. Along with all the bits I needed, I got hold of two fly wheels. One the chamfered teeth of the ring gear facing to the front and one had the teeth facing back, with bad wear on the front. So I just thought some dope had put the ring gear on back the front...
