Great, better that words ! The part missing is C16628 as it is write on the frame near the bearing ( and not C16624... ) Bill, you can buy it in new, SNG have them. Remember to fit it after mounting the seal and not just after the bearing. With this, Bill, you are going to have the better Hub of the...

Yes I know, it's the second way to put the shims. I don't know how you say this in English but the French translate is " it's not in the rules of art " the Fulcrum shaft spacer is very thin it's not the better way to put a shim. In the other side it's the tapered face of the container seal, not good...

Hi Bill, At each side of the Hub you have the bearings in first BUT to set up the preload of this kind of tappered bearing you need to put betwen them your tube spacer and some shims. This is the first things to do. Fit one bearing, fit the tube and shims and at the other side the other bearing. The...

Hi Bill, Hi Steve,

I re-check the parts order and it's good for me.
I do that twice time and it's work fine.
Not an easy job for the last outer fulcrum shim ( centrelizing wishbone and hub) but feasible.

Hi Bill, Welcome to this forum. For the other answer it's better to explain us how many pieces of each # have you in this kit? Your E type is a S1, S2, S3...Lightweight ? I don't have the book with me but into the forum, look at " The E Type Knowledge Base" + "Technical information & Documentation" ...

My motivation to buy a second E Type was my two kids.
One for each !
They do what they want with them, only hope they'll have the same joy than their mother and me behind the wheel.

Hi Keith, You wrote "you all know that", but be sure that each time you'll drive your E Type, it will be the same thing. The same pleasure and the same smile on your face when you hear the engine sound. Without speaking about the fact that when you look at it you think: " whoua... it's a so beautifu...

Hi Keith,
As steve told you, follows precisely the manual page C8 and C9.
You'll save time, your engine and your nerves...
It's important to disconect the carbs and set up them one after one.
Also important to balance them at last.
Good job.
