Re: barrie's project

I also found the boot lid doesn’t fit at all , the top fits but down the sides is tight , I think il have to remove the back panel and try. And push them out a tad when fitting the new back section as it doesn’t fit there either

Re: barrie's project

I think I’m being over fussy on the door and wing gaps , but iv settled with reasonable even gaps , the wing gap is a little to big , but I’m happy to let it go. Here is my trainee for the day , getting to grips with a ratchet and getting his knees dirty wearing his new overalls specifically for hel...

Re: barrie's project

I'd slap a bit of grease over the end of the hand brake cable ( the nipple, clevis pin and yoke ). Keeps everything moving freely and stops the rust fraying the end of the cable. Split pins. I was always taught to bend the two "legs " back on themselves , encasing the clevis pin , cutting off any s...

Re: Rear bearing problem

There is only one bearing fitted to a Minot rear hub. Item No: 82 is the bearing, item No: 83 is the seal. You will have a small amount of bearing play until it is all fully assembled - have you got that far yet? There should be no need for sealer between hub/gasket and half-shaft flange. The thick...

Re: barrie's project

It must be the right way up as on the pic because I fitted it the other way and the handbrake cable was at a funny angle
Here are other pics of the back of the cylinder and the handbrake cable in relation to the cylinder arm

Re: barrie's project

Assuming you are talking about the rear wheel sliding in and out, you need to determine where the relative motion is. Is it bearing inner race to housing or bearing outer race to hub. The latter can be confirmed if the outer race does not protrude a bit from the hub. The former is more likely and s...
