Re: Fuel tank flange gasket

Originally there was a gasket, BMC part # 128481. But i doubt that it's available anywhere.

Re: Cracked carb float chamber lid

Regarding using JB weld to patch the crack, I've found that modern fuel w/ethanol in it will slowly soften up the JB weld.

Re: won't start - now intermittent loss of power

Sounds like it's starving for fuel when the demand is up. You need to flow test the new fuel pump. Also possible that the pump is OK but there is a restriction in the fuel line between the tank and the pump.

Re: REAR AXLE HUB OIL SEAL

Phil, I found the change over listed in the parts manual, not the service manual. It's on page H.4 of the parts manual.
According to my BMC parts list # AKD743 (fifth edition) the addition of the o-ring was from chassis # 448801

Sorry, but it doesn't give "the date of change over and the middle name of the person who fitted the first 'O' ring"

Re: Leaking front dampers

I bought front and rear exchange units from Bull Motif, no problems w/them.
I didn't send the old ones back as the postage would have been more than I would have gotten back from Bully.

Not any harder than than a normal tire.

No, they're built more or less the same as a normal tire. They feel pretty solid when inflated to 55 or 60 psi.

Re: Intermittent weird starting problem

Sounds like a poor connection somewhere, possibly at the battery, or where the other ends of the battery cable connect, or maybe the earth strap between the chassis and the transmission.

How old is the battery? It may be the battery acting up.

Re: Outer front wheel bearing orientation

Here's a pic of how the bearings SHOULD NOT be installed.
You'll have to make sure the bearings are installed the other way around.
