Re: Trailing arm bushes

Its a lot easier to fit the brake shoes and springs
before you add the drive shaft and hub
Gives you more room to argue with the springs

you can still get to the 6 studs for the bearing hsg.
Just an idea

Re: weatherstrip woes

Some tips, always tie a length of cotton to the clip
then whennit goes airbourne you can retrieve it from
the bottom of the door or the garage floor

having a short timber and small mallet to drift the seal downnas you pull the clip
up with your home made lifter.

Re: Crankshaft end float

Think I would check the mainnselector lever setting and the
position of the small crimped marker on the kickdown cable
carb connector
drive plates can come loose on the flywheel or crack and
make odd noises
but a buzz sounds like selector settings

Re: Coolant hoses - to goo or not to goo?

Best not to, use sealers on hoses, tends to be slippery and
under pressure hoses can pop off their fittings

stick to simple stuff like Barrs leak or K seal
We used Barrs on every truck on the Assy line to stop
seapage, its not a bodge.

Re: Advice on seals needed

After fighting the normal supplier seals I decided there has to be a better way I sourced samples from CO Baines and even had a visit from thier sales rep SRS 071 was my choice, the Tee runs easily round the door channel (must be clear of sealer or rust etc) the Tee is a hard section it takes about ...
