Re: What thread is this?

Just tried & a 5/16 unf nut screws smoothly down the threads with no waggle so that must be it.
Thanks for your replies.

Re: What thread is this?

Re-checking in daylight I think it could be 24tpi which I believe would make it 5/16 unf.

Re: What thread is this?

Thankyou for the replies. It does look like M8 x 1 may be close enough.

What thread is this?

Hi.
Does anyone know what the thread is where the vacuum pipe screws onto the distributor vacuum unit?
It appears to measure 5/16 x 25tpi, is that a standard thread type or something unique to Lucas?
Thanks.

Re: plug leads

Thankyou. I actually have a 1966 car (my previous was 1967 & it didn't seem worth changing my username). Mine does have the top entry distributor but it's seen better days so I've bought a nos earlier 25d4 but it has side entry leads & a screw on vacuum pipe where mine has the rubber pipe.

plug leads

Hi.
Does the side entry plug cap for the 25D4 distributor use push in or screw in leads?
If push in, is it best to use copper core ht lead & make your own and should the plug caps be suppressed/resistor or not?
Thanks.

Eek, there's some metal missing from there. The fact it's a million makes it well worth doing though.

Distributor query.

Hi. Does anyone supply new or reconditioned 25D distributors that are as good as originals? Or anyone that fully reconditions originals? I've toyed with the idea of an accuspark electronic distributor but I quite like the idea of keeping points & condenser etc, just for the simplicity & possibility ...

wiper blades

Hi all.
Can anyone recommend decent quality wiper blades to fit my 1966 saloon that work & don't split & fall apart in a few months?
I've seen Lucas ones on ebay for around £15 & Tex ones for £25, what are people using?
Thanks.
Neil.

Re: windscreen fitting

I found fitting the windscreen (and even the rear window) pretty easy, but fitting the chrome trim to the front a total nightmare. I got a friend round in the end who'd done it before and between us after heating the trim up in warm water, with the special tool, a lot of cursing and sore fingers we ...

Re: 1964 Saloon... How bad is too bad?

In reality is doesn't look much worse than the one I bought, and mine came with almost a years mot!
I had to repair my guttering & roof edge & although I'm a (very) amateur welder it came out just fine.
Take your time & repair it.

Very, very sad. I always enjoyed reading Roys comments on the forum, the man was a fountain of knowledge on all things Morris & will be sadly missed.
