Re: Differential-Mounting for inner fulcrum shafts-shims

Kev,
Just wondered if this differential is from your 1968 car as shown below your signature as this appears quite an early differential as it has separate bolt-on brake caliper mounting brackets ?
Regards,
Dave

Re: HELP: Rear diff oil leak

Howard, Just be aware that even if the Diff Output shaft oil seal is leaking, it might not necessarily make the brake disc have any oil on it, so don’t dismiss this as the source of your leak, just because the brake discs are free of oil. The Output shaft bearing housing as an escape port cast into ...

Re: Sudden complete loss of fuel delivery

Hi Frank, I was going to ask you the same question as you had stated at your first posting #1 that you had initially had a “filter bunged up with some silicone from a sealing job”. My first thoughts would be that someone used silicon around the top of the petrol tank opening where your fuel pump is ...

Re: Sudden complete loss of fuel delivery

Frank, Good progress. Although you have found some silicon debris in the bulkhead filter, it would be the debris that you can’t see as microscopic particles within the filter that would concern me, so as these filters are very cheap I would replace it as a matter of course. Try blowing down the open...

Re: Sudden complete loss of fuel delivery

Frank, If it is a normal bulkhead mounted fuel filter with a glass bowl, there are no tools required to open the glass bowl. The glass bowl containing the filter is held in place by a retaining strap which has a large threaded shaped nut which is undone by hand to reduce the pressure on strap around...

Re: Sudden complete loss of fuel delivery

Hi Frank, Just to clarify the point made by Peter at #2, did you open the bulkhead fuel filter glass housing and physically examine the filter inside ? The point being that the fuel travels through the filter from inside to outside, so although the glass housing will always appear clear to debris on...

Re: IRS

The top damper mounting bolts appear to be the wrong way round. Steve beat me to it. These bolts should have a washer under the head of the bolt and the nuts. I normally fit an additional large stainless steel penny washer on the Inner fulcrum shaft against the mounting cage, so the nut is not direc...

Re: Advice on diff input seal

Steve #1 The lip seal appears to be installed the wrong way round. Generally the lip seal should point toward the medium being contained. This would have the metal retaining spring on seal on the inside. https://s14.postimg.cc/78gb957r5/56_CBF777-_DD18-4066-_A87_B-_CBF72722_A732.jpg Bill You are cor...

Re: Engine breather

Hi Mark, I run a large diameter pipe from the front engine breather to a catch tank under the carbs. I have added an extra vent pipe and filter to the tank to give two outlets. When running, any engine vapours rise from the tank and are inducted in through the carbs. Ensure the tank is mounted to en...

Bill, I understand. It was not so much the physical appearance of the bush finish that concerned me, but also realising this finish had no treatment to provide a hard surface to interface with a needle bearing. Just wish such a small component could be supplied correctly and not just “near enough” t...

It just seemed from an engineeri...

Re: Hinged extension board question

I’m not sure of the subtle differences in the evolution of these fixings from the earlier 3.8 FHC cars and I can only comment on the later 4.2 cars, as mine is a 1967 4.2 FHC. Perhaps someone with an earlier car can advise any differences with these fixings ? It makes sense that the extension board ...

Your Parts Catalogue should show that the two studs are different in size and profile, with different part numbers. My 4.2 Parts Catalogue lists them separately. The single stud locating to Spare Wheel Cover is much larger and part number BD. 10958. The two studs locating the hinged extension board ...

However, the ubiquitous "Jag Back End" is still used extensively in Hot Rods a...
