Re: Currently drinking.....

IMG_20190901_215442~2.jpg Life's good when you find a stash of beer you'd forgotten you had! I picked up a box of assorted ales from a shop in Lynmouth in 2017. Was going to give them as Xmas presents, but forgot about them, and they've been hidden in the back of the wardrobe for 2 years! They're o...

Probably a daft suggestion, is there anything in the boot rolling around? I keep a 600mm 1/2 inch drive bar in the boot, if it's not secured it clunks around.
Daft suggestions sometimes turn out to be correct!
I don't think there's much in the boot area, but I'll have a clear out to be sure.

Re: Axle tramp

..............................There's a knocking or clunking noise when changing gear, which seems to come from the rear of the car. It feels like it's drive train or axle/diff related. ... Can you be more specific? Does the knock happen when you re-engage the clutch after a gear-change? Can you av...

Re: Axle tramp

Try placing a mobile phone camera under the car with the light on, then with the engine running release the clutch and see if anything is amiss. Try this for each of the major components such as axle,leaf springs, diff, and both ends of the propshaft. You mention in your original post there are iss...

You could try putting the car in gear on a flat surface and push/pull it against the drive train to see if you can replicate the noise.

Good idea. Job for the weekend!

No, I haven't checked the halfshafts, but they haven't been touched in all the recent work.

Re: Axle tramp

Had the rear wheels up on the ramps tonight. Cardan shaft bolts are tight, no discernible play across the u/j at either end. There is backlash in the diff-I can turn the flange about 3mm relative to the diff casing. I think this is normal. There is no noticeable fore & aft movement of the cardan sha...

Have you checked the universal joints in the prop shaft ?

Phil
Must admit I haven't yet, the propshaft was off recently when I had the engine out. Would loose bolts cause it to knock? Or would it just rattle all the time?

Axle tramp

Hello world. I have recently rebuilt my engine and gearbox (see separate threads). It's a 1275, which has been bored +040", and the gearbox has had both main bearings renewed, and the needle bearings, as well as a new layshaft & 1st gear. There are a couple of issues with engine and gearbox, which I...

Or you could disguise yourself as me and use the same photo :)

So I guess the next step is to post a picture of that size?
Tried resizing the picture to 96x96, same result.

Re: How to post a photo

Thanks. This really shouldn't be such a faff. All it needs is a simple "how to" guide for adding a photo to a signature in the FAQ. If there is one, I can't see it. Did you find this? https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=68207 which links to this? https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messag...

That’s bizarre. Sorry, I’m out of ideas.
Yet, if I link to YOUR profile pic, it displays it, and according to Explorer, that's 150x150 pixels! (I'll change it soon, don't worry!)

Re: How to post a photo

Tried that, I get :-

Your images may only be up to 265 pixels high.

According to the file info in Explorer, the image is 100x96 pixels.

Hi Neil. Here is the code from my signature if it helps. Note that the reference to the picture points to a picture posted elsewhere on the board. I presume it could also point to a picture hosted on a different server, although I have not tried. Code follows: Brian [img]http://www.mmoc.org.uk/Mess...

Re: Road Height

Even then I don't think you'd get all the same measurements. Minors aren't built to the same standards of precision and tolerance as modern cars. Especially Travellers-the rear wings screw into the wood, I suspect a fair bit was done by eye.
