Re: Trunnion Pin

The trunnion has to be screwed up/down on the swivel just sufficiently to allow the trunnion pin to fit past the relieved Minor swivel threads. Just screw the trunnion up or down to allow the trunnion pin to pass through the relieved part of the swivel bottom thread whilst still allowing the swivel ...

Re: Brake valve limiter with discs

You can fit a brake line pressure regulator in the brake line serving the rear brakes but it is not absolutely necessary. The classic Mini brake line regulating valve is suitable in either non adjustable or adjustable style. http://www.minispares.com/product/Classic/Brakes/Hoses/21A1774.aspx?0403&Re...

Re: Differential overhaul

Poolguy
Well I am totally confused.com now.
You say that the BTA crown wheel was found to be fitted on a ATA carrier which was fitted into a BTA housing.

It could be that the carriers are interchangeable one way i.e. ATA to BTA but not BTA to ATA.

Re: Differential overhaul

My understanding is that:- The ATA carrier will fit the BTA Housing and carry a BTA crown wheel. The only difference between the ATA carrier and the BTA carrier is the strengthened webs of the BTA carrier The problem lies with the BTA pinion which will only fit the BTA housing. I am happy to be corr...

Re: MM Anti-tramp bars

I am not aware that the items listed by Pombear and referred to in my postings are available over the counter.

If you can give links to the supplier I would be grateful as I am always on the lookout for Minor performance items.

Re: can this block be rebored ?

Was the crankshaft turning as it should be before fitting the conrods/pistons? If it was below are some reasons as to why it is now not turning. 1. Have you put the con rods in the right way round so as to have the right offset? 2. Did you fit the con rod caps the right way round? 3. Are the big end...

If the steering is worn the caster will turn the wheels to full lock when going in reverse. The caster when going forward pushes the wheels to the straight ahead position. There has to be enough resistance to stop the caster effecting the steering when in moving in reverse. Hold onto the steering wh...

Re: 'Clonking noise' When i turned the steering...

The ball end of the track rod will hit the end of the rack housing when the steering is on full lock. There is no cushion between the two - it is just metal to metal contact. What you are seeing and hearing is normal. A new steering rack will be and do exactly the same.
