Re: Series MM Distributor

Thanks, I'll ask for a quote. I'm on a budget after Christmas though so may have to consider a second hand replacement if this option proves too expensive. Cheers, Karl.

Re: Series MM Distributor

Hi Rob, thanks for the advice. I was a little confused as the books say it should be DKY or so I thought. So the model I have is a D2AH4, type A176, service number 40333? One book I have says this type was fitted to later MM's but doesn't show a diagram. Do you have any spare that I can buy. If not ...

Series MM Distributor

Please can you help me. Is this the correct distributor for my car 1952? I've added some photos. I would like to buy a replacement as there is a significant amount of wear in the shaft which is making it really difficult to set the points etc. If anyone could sell me one or point me in the right dir...

Re: Knocking/tapping in 918 side valve

I took the car to show on the weekend. Some of the other owners suggested that it could be the distributor. It does appear to be making a noise and when you touch the distributor it changes the note of the engine, so there must be a lot of wear in the shaft or something. Bad news is, I've spoken to ...

Re: Knocking/tapping in 918 side valve

The noise seems to be coming from higher in the engine than though to be honest.

Re: Knocking/tapping in 918 side valve

What are the top end pins? Or the piston clamp ring? And how would I check these?

Re: Knocking/tapping in 918 side valve

The head has been skimmed very slightly but I'm not in a position to get the block skimmed currently. That's why I used the sealant and bolted it down at 44lb. The water leak is now sorted to I'm happy with that aspect. All the tappets are less than 0.018, I haven't run the engine with the tappet co...

Re: Head Gasket Washers

Hi,

I've looked at the studs and they are looked fine. I can get it to torque up nice 44lb etc but after the car warms up and runs for a bit the nuts can be re torqued... It looks like they have become loose.

I've not seen a mm head without washer before?

Hi, thanks guys. Its been going on all summer really and does seem to leak quite a bit even when the car is left overnight... I wake up to a little puddle the next day?

Head Gasket Washers

Hi, I have changed the head gasket on my 1952 side valve but there is water leaking from the one edge. I have asked around and the general consensus appears to be that I have the incorrect washers fitted. I am told that I need much thinker hardened steel washers but I have been unable to find any. P...
