Re: How’s this for a crankshaft?

Amazing. Can you imagine how they clocked the shaft with the dti. They are using a 4 jaw chuck and a centre on the tail stock. This looks good for the main bearings, but what kind of machine could machine the big end journals. The offset is huge. The face plate looks like it has the radius. Whats go...

Re: 1098 clutch in 948 gearbox

Don't forget the 1/4 balance mark on the flywheel. Not sure how important it is when we change flywheels of different sizes, but the mark is something to consider. I always ensure that this is correct when I rebuild engines. On the matter of the split screen, I once fitted a 1098 gearbox with the lo...

Re: Distributor drive removal tool.

Just use the engine steady. Its nice and long.
:lol:

The tappet cover bolt is just a little to short. You can only hold the bolt head and you run the risk of dropping the whole thing into the sump, if you are very unlucky.

Re: Eye bolt bushes

I'm thinking it doesn't matter! Tap the rear arm back on the T bar splines till it clears the flange bmc mentions it here, it dosent matter..... the torsion bar can be removed with the eye bolt still in the chassis, as long as the eye bolt socket is free to rotate and you have moved the cast iron a...

Re: Eye bolt bushes

I think the nut you are trying to undo is the outer eye bolt nut on the eye bolt pin. If you undo the tbar from the rear cross member and slide the small height adjuster arm forward along the rear of the tbar it will give some free movement. Also take out all of the associated washers around that ar...

Re: Timing cover oil seal

I put the pully wheel into the oil seal first,(oil seal already fitted to the cover) and them put the pully wheel on the crank, do the bolts up on the cover. It will always be centered then. I have turned a tool to extract and insert the oil seal using a bench vice. It supports the cover as it extra...
