Re: tappet clearance advise

Hugo, the original cams have straight sides the parabolic cams are not straight leading to the valves starting to open sooner and close later (Increased duration). This means that maintaining the same gap as the original cams leads to an increase in duration. Increasing the gap has the effect of red...

Peter, I would say it's hand held footage of the security camera monitor during playback. Maybe the owner doesn't know how to retrieve the original file from the security camera hard drive for posting on this forum.

Re: Crown Wheel & Pinion 3.07

3586 stamped on the crown wheel and etched on the pinion probably means they are a matched set. The cone setting distance should also be etched on the pinion ground face and is nominally 0 but usually deviates either side of zero such as + 3 or -3 for example. the other stamped numbers you refer to ...

Re: Crown Wheel & Pinion 3.07

The pinion should be stamped on its ground face with pinion offset and cone setting distance for that particular crown wheel and pinion assuming it's a matched set. The crown wheel in addition to the stamped information shown in your picture, should have the relevant backlash hand written with an et...

Re: Clutch prob?

Looks like the release bearing is worn out also the input shaft splines should have a light coating of grease. In your picture they are dry and rusty.
