Earth strap positions?

Morning all, I'm in the process of refitting my rebuilt engine back into the minor and re attaching the wiring. I've come across a previous owner fitted earth strap(see pic) which isn't very well fitted, it comes from the bulkhead and I presume attaches to the heater control valve stud? Is this nece...

Crankshaft pulle nut?

Hi all, if I've changed my original crankshaft pulley wheel for a damper type wheel can I re use the original dog bolt or do I need to source one from a damper wheel car?

Rear shock castle nut?

Hi all, can anybody tell me how tight the castle nuts on the rear damper links to chassis legs should be done up? Is there a shoulder on the pin attached to the chassis you tighten to as I seem to be compressing the bush a fair bit ?

Re: Tie bars ?

Thanks Phil the dimensions are the same, I've found a nut that's approx 4mm thick which takes up the slack if I fit it before the castle nut allowing the split pin to fit castle nut so I'll tighten to end of thread and double nut ? Sound good to you Phil?

Tie bars ?

Hi all, I think I've read that the tie bars need tightening until the dish/washer hits the shoulder of the tie bar. Is this correct as it means that the castle nut is way past the split pin hole in the threaded part of the tie bar ? I don't want to over tighten and cause any damage....any advise wel...
