  1. There's normally a number stamped on the lock assy. tony
  2. Have you replaced the O rings in the overdrive hydraulics recently? Assuming J type. Makes a big difference. Tony.
  3. I think the only way is to get good quality gauge, have it calibrated on a mercury column then keep it as a test gauge only. Many years ago I used to calibrate gas pressure gauges this way. Keep the good one as a standard to be used for calibration purposes only. Tony.
  4. Many years ago when I worked in an engineering workshop we used a Mobil product whose name now escapes me. Used on all shiny metal surfaces ,lathes milling machines etc. A fairly thick oil that we used to brush on. Not much help, I know. Tony.
  5. Are you sure it's not an electrical problem? I had something similar a while back. Fitted an accuspark or something similar to my rebuilt S motor. It had a regular miss which I couldn't tune out. In the end I swapped distributors with an identical one off my TC. Problem solved, or just transferred to the TC. New Pertronix unit fixed it. Tony.
  6. "The Fast Ladies"....female racers from 1900 on. Some great pictures too. Tony.
  7. As an ooold skier and ski patroller most injuries are broken tib and fib...lower leg spiral fractures. Something to do with that 6 foot lever attached to your foot. Tony.
  8. Just be sure that everything is flat and clean first. Tony.
  9. I'm a great fan of Loctite Master Gasket. Not cheap but ,for me, very effective.Stuck the front sealing block on a Triumph S amongst other things and no sign of an oil leak. Tony.
  10. I remember most of the campfire songs.I went from Scouts to Rover Scouts then to Cub leader. because I my day couldn't get interested adults to participate. Same today? I did my Scouting in New Zealand. Tony.
  11. FWIW just had similar problems with my 2500. Turns out I had worn seals in the M/C. Being in New Zealand we have duel circuit systems with front and rear working independently. Fluid was getting back past the rear piston. Had cylinder resleeved in stainless and rekitted. Now have perfect brakes. Tony.
  12. It's a pity that Lord Stokes is still not around. After the job he did on British Leyland I'm sure he could have sorted out your problems. Tony.
  13. Turning back time I was involved with both AEC and Ford buses. AEC's always started easily as long as compression wasn't down.(Motor worn) Ford's could be a bastard if compression was down or batteries were low. I trust your motor is alright for compression ? Tony.
  14. Why stop at a 6 ? Wouldn't this be better https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1856425671 Tony.
  15. Back to the original thread. Yes you can to it, cleanliness is the main essential as far as I'm concerned along with an understanding of tolerances an good measuring equipment . As an apprentice 60 odd years ago and a boss who was an ex air force fitter these things ware drummed into me. I still remember Tony.
