Re: Door Fit

I agree with trying the shim fitted on in inner side of hinge. I used this method many times as a carpenter to align wooden doors. This forms a wedge shape (exagerated) which moves the pivot point of the hinge pin. [/quote] Ritchie, Don There must be something in this as you are both saying the same...

Re: Door Fit

I haven't yet found the expert advice I mentioned in my post above -- but in the meantime here is something to consider. Some owners have reported great results by using shims behind the A-pillar hinges (which seems counter-intuitive) but here is the trick -- you only put shims behind the inner bol...

Re: Door Fit

First thing to note is I didn’t realise the wings could be adjusted Secondly I would be worried that if you jack it out the B pillar may move. I guess you would spread the load on the B pillar side and have point contact on the hinge you want to move ?? Also what gap is normal between B pillar and d...

Re: Door Fit

I wish I’d never started... So, I’m playing with the fit of the doors I’ve got a problem now with the gaps etc I fitted shims to the lower hinge to even out the gap where the door meets the front wing What I would like to do is move the door forwards towards the front of the car without resorting to...

Re: Original reclining seat frame/drawings

I have yet to complete this work but the only difference between standard covers and recliners are the parts of covers that go down the sides of the rear squab. As usual with Newton they are beautifully made and faithful to the originals in that there is a carpet strip to lower rear of the rear squ...

Re: Your thoughts please

It seems that the original design on this was flawed and so fitting a helicoil to return it to “original” was never a good option I would not consider a UNF thread in soft alloy unless the overall length was say 3 x the diameter of the fixing There is a lot to consider when choosing the pitch of a t...

Re: Your thoughts please

I would helicoil it provided there is enough material around the original fixing Have done this many times in both steel and alloy You can then use the original bolt Commonly used in industry for repairs If you can tap a thread you can do this Using “glue”would be crackers. Drilling and tapping epox...
