Re: Does anyone know where XRX143H is?

It shows up as being taxed on the Government website
https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-tax

The MOT ran out in 2017 but as it does not need one now, that is not really relevant.

Other than that, sorry I cannot help you.

Re: Moss Viton sender unit gaskets - a warning!

8-32 does not mean 8 x 1/32"
It is a number 8 and is 32TPI the OD is actually 0.164"

Assuming you were not having a laugh. Hope this helps

Awkward Screws

Just a little tip to pass on really. I have just replaced the faulty speedometer on my Traveller, I had a right old job trying to find the two screws with the screwdriver to loosen it from the dashboard, I have limited access on the drivers side since fitting more gauges etc in the glove box cutout....

Re: Adding drain holes to Traveller waist rails

The wood rails on mine have grooves along the length under the window channels from memory, this allows water to travel along and find the nearest hole.
I dont think it matters that the holes line up with the ones in the window channels.

Re: Traveller Tuning

Put a ring down the bore, and then slide a bare piston down onto it to ensure it is truly square bfore measuring the gap with feeler gauges. If you are using existing bores dont forget to try the ring at both ends. I dont have a copy in front of me but suspect you will find the desired gap in the wo...

Sorry I cannot help you with any information, but your Traveller does look very smart indeed.

"Not your fault, but it could have been messy!"

Hi Callspoy

I have just seen your post re the clutch linkage rose joints.
Looks like a good mod, can you share details of any part numbers or sizes for those rose joints please.

Re: Removing sump for oil change?

Why not get yourself a cheap borescope, they can be had for few quid these days and send a picture via WiFi to your phone or tablet. They are ideal for looking inside any cavities such as sills, doors, chassis rails etc, and I don’t see why you could not poke it into the sump drain plug and have a l...

I think the “It’s Never The Coil” saying that we all seem to find on here, should be somehow linked to the more up to date posts where “It Is Always The Coil” It seems to be a trend lately that some components that we all suspected to fail the least, are now made so poorly that we need to revise our...
