Crease in guard

I have included a photo of the guard of a car for sale on line. You will see I have arrowed a crease in the drivers side front guard mid point of the wheel arch. It is a raised crease not a inward dint. My car has this also and I am wondering what might be the cause. Maybe the result of a front end ...

Gearbox filler hole.

Here is a somewhat inane question to ponder while waiting for summer to come. Sedan gearboxes are tilted over to the drivers side, so if the filler hole is in the same place as a TR6 box, because TR6 boxes sit straight up, it would take more oil until the oil came level with the hole. So are the hol...

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.

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/...
