Re: Is my bonnet missing a bit??

I took a picture of my 1966 bonnet. You can clearly see the holes for the studs. My chrome grill looks the same as yours, with both studs and lower fixation.

Re: Main shaft issue

Bill, sorry if it was unclear written. It is an oil hole in the centre of the original main shaft. In Dennis Welch main shaft the centre hole is smaller than in the original one.

Thanks for the tip about hard chrome. I will check it out with a suitable workshop.

Re: Main shaft issue

Thank you for the response! Yes I realize that the surface for the needles must be hardened. One possibility is to use a needle bearing inner ring, it will have the correct hardness. I have found a suitable ring with 1" outer diameter and 13/16" inner. Means that I have to grind the main shaft down ...

Main shaft issue

Hello I have my syncro gearbox under restoration. Between the main shaft and the constant pinion shaft there is a needle bearing. This bearing have made a lot of wear on the main shaft.

Re: Titanium exhaust system.

Go for titanium. I don't know what my experience is worth as it's not from an E-type but my previous car was a Corvette Z06 with the stock titanium cat back system. It´s incredible lightweight. My experience is that it´s not the same sound as in a typical stainless system. The pipes that are closest...

Re: Belt length and alternator

Thanks for the replies! I changed direction on the upper bracket/bar because it collided with the (wrong)alternator fan. I cant get closer with the alternator to the engine than this. Its´s around 25mm left to go and I need to come closer. Is it wrong bar or wrong bracket on the water pump? It was a...

Belt length and alternator

Hi I got a problem with the alternator/water pump belt. I ordered the Duplex 1100mm from SNG but its way to short. 1100mm is the proper length as far as I know. So maybe I have wrong parts on my engine? Can anyone tell me if I have the correct alternator before I try to find a longer belt? It is sta...

Re: Head gasket

Thank you all, I will order a new gasket with oval water holes. Different hole sizes for the water in a head gasket can be used to adjust the water flow in order to keep the same temperature for each cylinder. The smallest holes are then closest to the water pump where it is the highest water pressu...

Re: Missing spacer in final drive

I contacted AJ and got the answer. The spacer I asked for was newer introduced on this final drive although it is in the spare parts catologue.
Maybe it was in use for other heavier applications for the final drive, I do not know.
Thank you! :smile:
