Spinners revisited

Hi.
Lockdown tedium saw me messing about with old spinners and an electronic balance! (all look to be 'original')
5 off- weights- 837g,873g,915g,932g and 941g! .........fair old spread!

Re: Dellorto Conversion kit

Just measure the inner and outer cable lengths and get it made up or send it to Venhills and get an exact copy made with adjusters etc.

Re: 3.8 E diff input seal

Thanks folks for the info. So , if I decide to replace the input seal I should get away with marking the nut and shaft!

3.8 E diff input seal

Hi,
If I replace the input seal on my 3.8 diff. does the pre-load need checked/rest on the crownwheel? Is there a crush tube on a 3.8-parts book doesn't show one , did the crush tube come in with the 4.2?

Thanks, D

Re: Upgrade to E type forum

Thanks for prompt, satisfying, response David. I did think to myself that it probably didn't matter for the very reasons you say i.e. no card details, addresses etc. but thought I'd ask.
Thanks again, D

Re: New to petrol tanks, fitting, filter - advice please ?

Rory,
Those were exactly what I looked at!.......don't remember why I kept the original, must have been in reasonable nick (often those soldered gauze affairs on bike fuel taps are in parlous states!).

Re: New to petrol tanks, fitting, filter - advice please ?

A paint spray gun filter was considered when I had the tank etc out many moons ago. They are available in a variety of sizes, white 'nylon' and fit snugly over brass pipe. In the end I used the original type .

Re: Bonnet balance link assy. bolts

no, I mean the bolts on which the spring assy 'pivots' i.e. as the bonnet opens the mechanism opens pivotting round these bolts.

Bonnet balance link assy. bolts

Hi,
What size are the 'swivel' bolts for the balance link (not the special shouldered ones)? Mine are 1/4" UNF but there appears to be lots of 'slop'. Sizes are not specified in parts book.
Thanks

Re: Fuel smell

Mine was same (many moons ago!). replaced sender unit and pump cork gaskets-smell gone! Do this before buggering around removing the tank! (If you 'have' to remove tank, you have to remove the central tank mount, certainly to get the tank in again).
