Re: Back to where I started.....45 years ago!!

I've a barn that will hold four vehicles, plus a workshop, but until recently was also so full of stuff that it was quite difficult to get round the cars. I'm fortunate in having plenty of space outside in rural isolation, so no problems with planning rules. For 33 years I've always been one shed sh...

Re: mot

Several interesting points have emerged in discussions on other classic forums, although it's been strangely quiet here. 1) No provision appears to have been made for people renewing their tax before the MOT exemption day whose next MOT will not have been covered by an exemption declaration. (You ca...

Re: diff nose hights

Somewhere I remember seeing some years ago a video of a prop shaft viewed under stroboscopic light so that it appeared stationary. Except that it wasn't quite still. You could clearly see the centre section speeding up and down rythmically, which is correct of course because of the effect of the spi...

Re: diff nose hights

There's a lot of discussion here about the inter-relationship between nose piece type, sub-frame mounts, diff rear mounts, suspension sag, suspension leg bolts to nose piece, and propshaft alignment, and the effects on camber angle and vibration. Also the different mounting points for the trailing a...

Re: diff nose hights

Surely the diff nose height depends on the relative positions of the diff mountings and the rear crossmember legs? I don't see the connection with engine tilt. There was a thread ages ago about adjusting the diff angle to try and get more of a straight alignment with the prop shaft, but that was to ...

Re: Flywheel spigot bushing

There is presumably an acceptable tolerance range for the input/crank shaft sideways movement? Whatever it is, why does it matter whether it is at crank to bush or bush to input shaft, or a bit of each? If you could get inside the assembled unit, how much wobble would be acceptable? How would the cl...

Re: Clutch fork

Get a good quality one from Chris Witor, and don't forget to wire it so it can't come loose.

Re: J type overdrive wiring

Got it. There is another wiring diagram in the main text, amplifying the one at the back. The White wire, now marked (2) goes to the starter solenoid, the Brown wire marked (1) goes to the SW terminal on the coil. Also the relay diagram now explains that the earth to the relay is supplied via the in...

Re: J type overdrive wiring

Both my Haynes and Autobooks do indeed show an inset wiring diagram with the inhibitor switch earthed, the other terminal being connected to the operating switch. The relay has 4 wires to 4 terminals: W1 = White wire to ? C1 = Brown wire to ? C2 = Yellow/Purple wire to overdrive solenoid W2 = Yellow...
