Re: Heated rear window. Saloon

One guy here who fits screens told me to put the rubber in the washing machine with plenty of "Lenor".

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

alte1.jpg I'll try to find some better pics. Mine was 'made' in the same way as yours but based on an original owned by Carlo P. I posted the designs on here a while ago but found that someone had copied the designs and was freely selling them on the inetrnet. NOT COOL! The drawing work was done by...

Re: Traveller 5 speed gearbox,

Phil,
On the MG forums the general consensus is that the Redline oil is the best. I have it in mine and it seems quite good.

Re: Traveller 5 speed gearbox,

Phil, Correct-. The drain plug is mentioned on his website. Peter has a nice set-up. You can see his company name cast in on the photo taken last year. Peter insists that he supplies the first oil filling used during the warranty period. He specifies a different oil:.. Oil for Ford T9 Gearboxes. 75W...

Re: Traveller 5 speed gearbox,

The Ford type 9 gearboxes supplied by Peter Gamble of Hi Gear Engineering do have a drain plug fitted. He does have his own castings for the rear housing.

Re: Differential overhaul

The pinion markings look to be near spot on. As regards the backlash - The factory specified backlash measurement is etched on the rear face of the crown wheel. How does your measured backlash compare with the etched measurement? Whilst you state that the backlash is slightly more than stated in th...

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

I decided I needed a one off smaller clock for my car so I had a go at a 52mm version. It turned out quite well too. This clock is based on a 40x8mm round quartz movement and using a standard bezel and glass. The 3D printed housing is again designed to match the bezel, the glass and the movement. Th...

I will sit down and calculate the price over the next few days. I would estimate roughly 75€.

It fits perfectly!

Re: Textured paint for heater

Here's what my Smiths heater looked like before and after using the VHT wrinkle finish paint. The fan was swapped out for a high efficiency speed controlled computer fan.

Re: Differential overhaul

Neil,
Yes happy New Year to you too.
Yes, you should be looking for the same contact pattern. Read through the "Bellavista" on contact patterns once again before you go at it.

Re: Differential overhaul

Phil,
Yes you are right. Billavista says only paint on 3 or 4 teeth of the ring gear in at least two different places. I took that diff apart so many times and I was too lazy to clean it all off again but will do when I get back to it.

Declan.

Re: Differential overhaul

Neil, I think "Billavista" explains it better. http://billavista.com/tech/Articles/Gear_Setup_Bible/index.html Scroll down to "Setting pinion depth" Fig 28. He also mentions loading the diff to get a decent tooth pattern which is difficult on the Minor. I find that it is sometimes difficult to read ...

Re: Differential overhaul

Neil, To quote from the Billavista website: 2. Using a small, stiff brush apply gear-marking compound to three or four teeth of the ring-gear, in at least two different places. Use the marking compound sparingly, but be sure to completely cover both the coast- and drive-side of the teeth. Some folks...

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Thanks to a tip from Don I managed to win the auction for an original glove box door on eBay so I won't have to send the clock to somebody to test fit it. Rob, I agree with you. Copying someone else's designs and selling them freely on the internet is not the done thing but that is the world we live...

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Here's the photos of the finished clock. I received the printed dials on Christmas eve.I just have to find out if it fits as planned. It is easy to make adjustments to a 3D printed housing. I am quite happy with the way it has turned out so far. I just have to make the u shaped fixing bracket. Regar...
