Front or rear drums?

At present away from my moggy - but have found a pair of brake drums going cheap, new, but the owner doesn't know if they are front or rear... this is for a latter Moggy with different sized front / rear - so can anybody tell me how big, in diameter, the front and rear are supposed to be so I can me...

What similar parts to Triumph 1300 Dolly

I was just wondering if the condenser, rotor arm and points etc. from a Morris 25d distributor would also work in a 45d Triumph dolly 1300 distributor? Anybody know?

Also, anything else similar - starter solenoid for example, bleed nipples? Etc

Thanks! :D

Tomorrow is gearbox change day...

So, tomorrow I'll swap gearboxes using the BMC manual - hope all goes well, especially since I am changing it the axle stands-underneath method. A horrible day on my back in store c :D Just one last question - the side plate on the gearbox, the inspection plate as it were, I have put a new seal on i...

Re: What new parts for a gearbox change...

Brilliant, thank you! Old side gasket wasn't damaged, rubbers seem okay, thrust bearing plenty of carbon, front seal looks new. There is slight play on the front shaft - but been told it's okay on this forum given only 1/1.2 mm play at the end of the shaft. So... straight swap with no new bits!! Exc...

What new parts for a gearbox change...

So, preparing to change my gearbox at the end of next week - unfortunately an axle stands and sweat job, but preparing now... by asking what do I need to order to complete the job? I know I need a new gasket for the side panel of the gearbox (as I have had it open to check condition of the gears)......

How much carbon?

Hi!

Can anybody tell me how many millimetres of carbon are supposed to be 'proud' of the metal on a new clutch thrust bearing, roughly?

Thanks in advance!

lol - or indeed bottles! Or, if back in Scotland, a few pints of 80 shilling. I'm sure that was the most popular with the punters when I worked in hotels up in St.Andrews...

Re: Which gearbox...

It doesn't help that my workshop manual - though a latter edition - only contains a piccy of an earlier gearbox. Does the Haynes manual have an internal diagram of the latter gearbox? I will need one as am going to rebuild the old gearbox so that the speedo worm drive works... I hope you will still ...

Re: Which gearbox...

These are ribbed cases, I can't 'see' the cones as such in the actual gearbox. So (using BL/BMC book terms) - the 'synchroniser' is attached to the shaft and is actually a tube with splines / teeth on both the inside (to grab the shaft) and outside in the case of the first gear (to grab the layshaft...
