Re: barrie's project

And the floor sat in ready to be cut to size , but first I need to remove the back section and make a new one so I can weld it in before fitting the floor fully . So in two weeks I’d fit the rest of the sill panels fit the rear floor section , fit the floor, try the door on and weld in the quarter s...

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.

Re: barrie's project

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...
