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...

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.
