Re: New headlight fitting

It's unwise off course to leave the forum, but he IS right about the snobbery. The guy says he is new to the forum and you welcome him with what you call "camaraderie"?

Re: Brake pedal against underside cover plate

Thanks Alan! That is the answer I was looking for. I know it looked a silly topic. But the car was a wreck and I'm now finishing it. I've never driven it. Took the pedals out 18 months ago and now have put them in LHD instead of RHD. The pedal hitting the plate looked unusual and I wanted to be sure...

Re: Brake pedal against underside cover plate

Could anyone tell me what stops the brake pedal in its upwards travel ? When released, where does it rest against.

Re: Brake pedal against underside cover plate

Nearly the full length of the pedal's arm.

Brake pedal against underside cover plate

I'm doing a RHD-LHD conversion. When the brake pedal is released it hits (by the return spring) the underside of the master cylinder cover. I suppose that is not correct, but how can I avoid it?

Engine earth cable connect where

Dear all,

Where should I connect the braided engine earth cable to. Gearbox and chassis leg? Left or right side. Which gearbox bolt. The car came without an engine earth cable :-?

Thanks

Re: Brake and clutch pedal return springs, where attached

It is a new chassis leg, no plate inside. I will make one. Thanks Dudload.

Brake and clutch pedal return springs, where attached

Around the brake and clutch pedals there are three identical looking return springs. 1. I know there is one between the clutch fork and a hole in the rear engine plate. 2. One from the exhaust clamp to where? A clevis pin? But which? 3. One from the master cylinder yoke to where? I don 't remember. ...

Re: Engine to far forward?

I loosened the engine support tower to chassis legs bolt, rubber mounts nuts, also gearbox side, crossmember bolts and started to wiggle, like Phil advised. Result! IMG_20200614_152912~2.jpg Same at the other side where I also adjusted the tower a bit to be exact parallel with the chassis legs. All ...

Re: Engine to far forward?

Thanks Rob! So engine position can't be far out. I'll follow Phil's advice and try wriggling the whole thing backwards a bit and check propshaft on splines position. If that's acceptable I'll leave it at that.

Re: Engine to far forward?

Yes true. I'm taking it from top of block rearmost, visible peeping out from under cloth. Kevin measured from end of cilinder head I assume.The CH does not overlap the engine block, so I gather the difference can't be less. But I have to check this.

Re: Engine to far forward?

No, they are correct, with the longer lip backwards. If I turn the around the engine will go forward even more.

Re: Engine to far forward?

Thanks Kevin! I measured 43 mm at my Car. So that's 2 cm more forward. That's a lot!

Re: Engine to far forward?

It would help me if anyone could take a measurement on their car so I could verify the position of the engine. Cylinder head or rocker cover to bulkhead distance?

Re: Engine to far forward?

Sorry Phil, I forgot to mention it is from 1967 with a cross member marked 'front'. The CM is attached to the chassis legs through pre-drilled holes. The four holes in the legs are slotted yes, but the four bottom ones are not and in caged nuts. I would like to check if the engine should go backward...

The towers themselves off course bolts to the chassis legs and tie plates through pre-drilled holes, so their position on the chassis legs is pre-determined. Same with the gearbox cross member.
