Re: Setting up the engine with a performance cam

A bit late for this thread but next time do this: I have used this method since buying a cam from Wade Cams, sadly now closed, ages ago.
Set the motor to TDC, install the cam and with a dial gauge set the inlet on No.1 to the lift setting at TDC. Get this setting from your cam supplier.
Its done.

Re: Brake Shoe Adjuster?

You have gone to a lot of trouble Johnnydog, many thanks. I have got the shoes adjuster mec. expanding with light pressure on the pedal and no drum attached. When they are reset to fit the drum I can’t get a high pedal. So! maybe I need to extend the brake shaft to the master cylinder. Having just f...

Re: Brake Shoe Adjuster?

Well Johhydog you have gone to a lot of trouble here, many thanks. It would be interesting to know why the part numbers are different, mine being 850 & 851? I am at the point now where the mechanism can be seen to expand with the drum off, with a light pedal pressure, but when it is relieved in orde...

Re: Brake Shoe Adjuster?

Thanks Jonnydog and Charles, Good points by both. I am trying to get confirmation without taking them apart again. It’s hard to see the direction of the teeth on mine and one of mine has a different number than one of the sh units for sale on Chrises web site. I have found a mention on a TR7 forum t...

Re: Brake Shoe Adjuster?

Thanks for the reply and the photos from Chris’s website.
However the question has not been answered.
They are marked with the numbers:- 3134-851 which is on the near side on my car and 3134-850 which is on the off side.
So! is this correct or were they back the front and arse about?

The question is which bracket goes on what side. I recently found that my adjusting brackets were installed back the front. The larger one in the photo. Now I think they may also be on the wrong side. The retailers of these don't seem to know what goes where. They are marked with the numbers:- 3134-...

Re: Oil sump plug wont budge

You can buy replacement plugs with a hexagon inset so an allen key can be used but you won't find them everywhere, Best advice, I recently fitted one as a drain plug to a diff I rebuilt. Then I purchased four moor and replaced the two in the gearbox, the sump, and the diff input. I now use an allen...
