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...

Re: Diff numbers?

Thanks Johnny,
That all tallies with my two diffs.
Doing the turning the input shaft thing I get 3.25 turns for the yellow and 3.5 turns for the red using the four bolt holes as mafkers.
Cheers B.

Diff numbers?

I have two spare diffs and am curious as to their origins.
Been searching this morning but can't find and info.
One has MEC16120 on it and the other MG61256.
I think the MG one is a late TC/S but can't find any reference to a MEC number.
Any one know I would be grateful.
Bernard.

Re: replacement radiator

I have had the same problems recently and was quoted silly money in Australia to recore. I eventually settled on a Chinese alloy unit which need a little bit of work to fit. It is a little wider than the old unit so have to rethink my electric fan installation. Looking at the Suzuki unit on eBay I n...

Re: Rimmers headlight switch

I like the sound of having another position on my headlight switch for fog.
Does anyone know if the wiring loom is the same on the facelift models, my car is a 1977 2500TC.
That is to say the wiring is still there and an earlier switch could be fitted.

Re: Radiator cap mod

Hello Bernard, "The supplementary is:- Apart from allowing clearance for the radiator cap is there another reason why the radiator has a space between it and the bulkhead?" I don't understand what clearance you are talking about, can you explain further or show a picture? Alec Here is a photo of th...

Re: Radiator cap mod

Thanks for the photo Jonathan, knew I have seen it somewhere. I intend to weld a fitting for the cap in to the existing casting. This will mean that the coolant fills the engine and head, which is probably why the setup was used on the WCR car. My car is Australian build with the fan in front of the...

Radiator cap mod

I want to move my radiator cap to the casting on the front of the head. Why? Its the highest point and seems a sensible place for it and would negate the fitting of a header tank. But why? Well I want to move the radiator forward to give more clearance in the front of the engine for electric fans an...
