I've both.
The book to flick through to check something, and if doing something to the car where the book would get filthy, I print out the pages I need for the job. :wink:

Re: Gearbox steady wire?

Have you got the BMC Manual? No, just Haynes. If you search online, your favourite search engine will find several online Libraries and Classic Car websites offering it as a free download pdf. The current printers of the paper manual have a copyright on their reprint, but as I understand it, that c...

The cable will not stop aft (rearwards) movement. The cable is only designed to stop the engine/gearbox assy moving forward.
Good point. I was basically saying just adjust it until the slack is taken up, but worth making it clear.

Re: Gearbox steady wire?

Have you got the BMC Manual?

Details start on P81 with the diagram. Accompanying text is over on P82.

It's in Section AA for the Series II Engine, not the Gearbox section.
The details of the Engine Tie Rod immediately follow it.

The idea to adjust until there is no Fore and Aft movement.

Was the original sticker a paper sticker or water transfer?
If you look at JJ's photos above, they have the classic appearance of the decals you use on plastic model kits, so I would say water transfer.
I doubt you'll find these available anywhere....

My guess it you will now get as many opinions as there are makes/brands of Coil..... When I got my car it had an Accuspark with a Red body and Black top (Sport?).

I am struggling to find a UK suppliet but it is readily available in the US That's because they are principally an American domestic paint brand, basically part of Dupli-Color, which is a Sherwin-Williams brand.

I think the wire was supposed to be a length of flexible braid but the solder had made it completely rigid.
