Re: MM Split Case Rear Axle - Bearing Replacement

That is a standard bearing that was used on many differentials. I have the same 19LJ35 R&M in my MG TD. It is a metric bearing and the modern equivalent is an SKF 7207B measuring 35x72x17mm.
Hope this helps

Re: Type 9 gearbox

If you buy the gearbox from Peter Gamble from Hi-Gear Engineering, they come fitted with a drain plug. I tapped the top plate to take a filler cap on my MG when I installed the T9.

Les,
If the rubber washer was the right size then yes. I added a grommet to solve that problem.

Re: Ford discs-sticking caliper?

It could be the inner wheel rubbing. That was the case with mine and they do mention the wheel spacers required in the instructions that I got from ESM.

Re: Mystery pipe

Kingsley, The Landrover flame trap does act as a separator. It has coarse gauze on the inside. The reason I connected it to the inlet manifold was laziness as the connection was already there. The brass "thingy" upstream is a restrictor so basically has the same effect as connecting to the carb. Reg...

Re: over reading speedo

Liam,
Exactly what I did. I changed the diff from 4.22 to 3.9 and the speedo was then spot on.

Re: over reading speedo

If you can't get it sorted I can build you a speedo corrector gearbox that sits on the back of the speedo. I have built loads of them over the years for differential conversions mainly for MG but the speedo threads are the same (M12x1mm) on the Minor.

Re: over reading speedo

What is the TPM on the speedo?
Have you a standard four speed gearbox fitted?
What is the differential ratio?

Re: 3D printed suspension parts

Phil,
Some of these seals fail before a restoration has even been completed and the car back on the road. This is especially the case in the MG scene. They just crack and break up. I put it down to ozone problems.

Re: 3D printed suspension parts

Nearly there.
I have just received these back from the 3D printing service. These are TPU and I think this is going to work. One small change required but nothing major. I am quite pleased. This could save a lot of owners a lot of work!

Re: Brake reservoir kit

Phil, The thing about the stainless steel teflon braided flexible hose is that with the banjo fitted it requires a large hole ~18mm in the chassis leg to fit which I don't like. The hose is pre-assembled as I would not expect anybody to fit the banjo themselves as the braid has to be flared and the ...

Maybe this version might be better. I will order a test piece. It would take two cable ties or two M2 screws and nylocs.

Re: 3D printed suspension parts

I got some suspension parts from the printing service today. Mixed feelings! The TPU, although highly durable, is a bit too hard for my liking but the parts may be useable. The actual fit is very good. The two part kingpin seal will not work as it is so it is back to the drawing board on that issue....

Re: drain plug tap

Are you sure it is BSPT on the axle? I would have thought that the plug is tapered and the axle a parallel BSPP thread.
