Re: Monza-type Filler Cap, Clearance, and Improving Breathing ?

Yes, absolutely right Tom. I just checked up on cylinder head parts at SNGB.

So I'm not quite as daft as I thought for a few minutes :wink:

Re: Mystery clip? Any ideas?

It's curious how your 1st picture is with postimages.org and will not display when I click on it while the second is with postimg.cc and does display. I have found that if you right click on the former picture and select "copy image location" and paste that into the address bar of a new tab, bingo, ...

Last week during a visit to my brother in S of France I also went to visit Rory and pick up my Monza oil filler cap. Super visit thank you Rory, hospitality second to none.

SNGB have uprated arms available which keep the blades on the screen and have a more secure fitting on the splines.

Re: Rev Counter

My rev counter again appears to be reading low. I re-calibrated it a while ago which improved things but . . . Std gearbox and final drive. I'm sure I've seen on here a table giving revs against speeds through the gears. This would be most helpful for checking, rather than trying to see if the speed...

Re: Define the spacer into the hub

Thanks Bill, I had forgotten there was no spacer for the rear wheel bearings and I cannot argue with your figure of 60ft.lb. torque for tightening but it seems pretty high to me.

I may have a workshop manual still but this is a little off topic now :?:

Re: Define the spacer into the hub

As a younger man . . . too many years ago! I rallied a Mini Cooper S. This had taper roller bearings in the front hubs (and rear also) so the front hub was fairly analogous to the E-type rear hub. There was no bearing adjustment available, the hubs were done up tight with a spacer between the inner ...

Re: How to disengage a circlip

If the external grove for the circlip (in either case) is a close fit on the clip (depth, not diameter), then the clip could not have been inserted with the centre part in contact with the clip. In either case, the centre part restricting the compression of the circlip must have been relatively lowe...

Re: Cheap Self Regulation Alternator Alternative

I must admit that that seems to be a very good find, well worth the money. However, if it was me in the first place, my first solution would be to replace the offending bearing, even if a plain, ball or roller bearing. I have found in the past that Simplybearings.co.uk have just about any bearing yo...

Re: re enamelling exhaust manifolds

Yes, they are quite crazed. I'm not sure whether that is due to inadequate/incorrect conditioning when first used or water getting on the manifolds when hot - rain entering the louvres under braking, or what. I suspect the latter is a strong candidate as this can have happened on a number of occasio...

Re: 4.2 seats and hood cover

I have a pair of newly trimmed seats in my attic (Nice n dry - MX5's in the car) which I could photograph for you and send pictures.

Re: Cooling fan problem

You should measure the resistance of the stator coils. If you have an open circuit, then the motor is duff.

Re: I‘ve got a problem with a 7/16-20 UNF...

I think your concern would be governed by whether, when the seat belt is stressed in an accident, "is the load on the bolt in tension or shear"?

If in shear, it will not matter much which thread you use.
