Re: Running as rough as a badgers behind

as there's not a lot left to check, can the pump flow enough fuel and to pressure it may be ticking but not pumping.

Re: is it me or are modern rubber bits rubbish??

yep rubbish :evil:

I use polyurethane bushes or n.o.s parts where possible & have refitted the 30+ year old trunnion seals back on as they were in better nick than the replacements which had ether swollen or split. Will also be needing to do my screen rubber again soon as well.

Re: Iveco van brakes

The Iveco's I've had experience with all had shoe handbrakes (they were part of a fleet so were mostly the same model) on caliper handbrake types of vehicles Ive found it easier with some stubborn calipers to remove them & mount it in a vice so you can get some weight behind it (even with a proper w...

Re: Ital 1275 starter ring gear

If you go on the QH website you can look up clutches etc & gives the part No's for the individual bits with cross referencing to OE & competitor No's . Handy to arm yourself with some numbers as some staff at motor factors haven't got a clue if the computer says no A piece of std coolant hose the co...

Re: Which A-series?

The 266 is not to dissimilar from the MG Metro cam just has a little more lift & I think slightly longer duration

If you already have a head that's needing work you could have the throats cut & blended in for larger valves at the same time

Re: Ital 1275 starter ring gear

sounds like the engine has a modified 1098 already fitted the marina ones are larger. for the clutch use a 1098 cover & a centre plate for a 1.6 sierra/cortina (5 speed type) . I have used this in the past & worked fine but now use the complete sierra clutch which will require the dowels to be repos...

Re: Which A-series?

Its on the milder end of the choice if performance cams so is quite tractable low down & idles smoothly. other factors that will affect this will also depend on what you do to the head. Whatever your budget or how far you want to go maybe worth concentrating on that first I got the cam from minispar...

Re: Which A-series?

I would personally go for the 1275 as 70- 80 bhp is not difficult to achieve & will still be road friendly whereas to get the same power from the smaller engine will make it a lot more peaky my 1275 was measured about 90 bhp on a RR session, has a good spread of power & really wakes up over 2500-300...

Re: Semi, Three Quarter and Fully Floating Wheel Hubs

yes just a standard single row ball bearing & wont resist all the forces from the wheel upon it alone which is where the shaft comes in to support the hub with the diff effectively forming the inner race. The only axle type that the shaft has only one job to do (transmitting drive) is the fully floa...

Re: Semi, Three Quarter and Fully Floating Wheel Hubs
