Re: Front Wheel Bearings - Face Adjusted

When it comes to bearings I would use 7205BECBM and not 7205BECBP. The difference is in the cage. The "M" is a metal cage and the "P" is polyamide. The metal cage bearings are a bit more expensive.

Re: questions for upgrades in 1275cc Minor

If a 1625 speedo under reads then he will need a higher TPM not a lower.
One of my corrector gearboxes could be used but 10% change means larger gears.
The photo shows one of the new generation boxes (1:1.4) with a 3D printed housing.

Re: rear crankshaft scroll.

You can retro-fit a jiggle pin without removing the gearbox. Just put it in backwards from the bottom and use a screw driver to spread it so that it doesn't fall out.

Re: Quality of New Parts

The trunnion seals that I make are not doomed to premature failure. I have supplied hundreds of them for Morris Minor, MGA, MGB and MG TD / TF.
No reported failures to my knowledge!

Re: Diff Identification

IIRC, back in the 70s Ford diffs were built up using a collapsible spacer to clearance/backlash specification. The collapsible spacer was measured and replaced by the permanent solid variety. I may be wrong on that, as it is a distant recollection from a service manual of the day. Not a bad idea at...

Re: Diff Identification

Here's where I bought my 3.9 CWP. (246.46€).
The tolerances were not the best (Made in Turkey) and this company is distributing them all over.

Here is a photo of the hole (lower left) made in the bell housing to allow the clutch release arm pivot bolt to be fitted downwards. The hole does not interfere with or compromise the integrity of the bell housing.

Re: Diff Identification

As far as I know the Austin Healey 100-4 BN1 used the 9/33 diff. I doubt if that is a Midget diff that you have been offered.

Re: Replacement gearbox for my 948 (1959) Morris minor

And make sure you get the the mechanical speedo drive and not the electrical one. Your speedo will be way out and you will not know by how much until you test drive it as the T9 has several different speedo drive gear options. If you purchase a gearbox from Hi-Gear Engineering it comes with a drain ...

Re: Diff Identification

That seems to be the 3.7 diff-and is quite difficult to source. There is not a huge difference between the 3.9 and the 3.7.
I find the 3.9 makes my speedo spot on.

Re: Moss Viton sender unit gaskets - a warning!

Cork gasket alone should be fine. Shouldn't really need a sealant if the surfaces are flat and smooth. Hylomar might help the paper to be fuel-proof, though. I think the screw holes are sealed at the other end with steel, but I might be wrong. Worth checking if they are really 8-32UNC and adding th...

£8:50 will buy you a 20cm x 20cm sheet of 1mm Viton rubber if you want to cut your own out (and enough for a dozen more), including postage from Ebay sellers. Doesn't require much precision so scissors and a hole punch would do.
Rob,
You can only cut five from a 20x20cm sheet.

Correct. It says on the data sheet:
Do not use Viton with acetone, esters, amines, organic acids, acetic acid, MEK, ethyl acetate, highly polar chemicals, etc.

Re: Moss Viton sender unit gaskets - a warning!

Rob,
It is actually 2-3/8" (60.325mm) but the CAD is set to 2 figures after the decimal point so it was rounded off to PCD 60.33mm.
Not Germanic,-imperial. :D
