    hood bag fitting

    Len, This is what I did on the inside. Mine is a Don cover and it has 3 elasticated straps with a square vinyl pad on the end of each. I fitted a female snap to each of the 3 vinyl tabs (if the cover is lying flat on the table, with the snap hollow facing up to you). I then fitted the corresponding three male snaps under the screws marked red in the pic. Note you can only see two of the three. The third one is the corresponding one on the drivers side to the one highlighted on the passenger side. You can see the black male snap already fitted on the passenger side, although I subsequently changed for chrome snaps. Don't know of a "correct" way but this works well for me. In fact I only ever attach the middle snap, as the two outer ones are hard to get to, and that holds the cover fine at all speeds. Hope this helps. Cheers, Sean
  2. Thanks All, What a great form this is! HAGWE Sean
  3. Thank you all for your input so far. I'm pretty sure it is not the UJ's as these are all new and greased (including the propshaft). I can find no manual play in the splines on the shafts. I have had them off again to check. When I rock the inner part of the drive shaft only, the play and noise (audible in the video) is still there and as I say above appears to be only in the passenger side of the diff. Roger, if its excess backlash, is this something that can be lived with, or is damage being done by ignoring it? What is the fix? Thanks again. Sean
  4. Evening All. I have knock (possibly better described as a clunk) from the drivetrain when I lift the clutch and the wheels start to move. I can also hear it at low speeds when releasing the clutch after changing gears 2 - 4. Cannot hear it at high speed. The car drives beautifully apart from this. Could this be the problem? The play seems to be only in the nearside diff yoke and I cannot detect any play in either side shaft splines or UJ's which are all new. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be here and what the fix might involve? The diff has not been rebuilt, but CTM replaced the seals and bearings about 5 years ago after which it sat in my garage during my re-build. Many thanks, Sean
  5. Thanks Waldi. Expensive bit of kit!
  6. Thanks Brian, That's good information. I do tend to have a heavy foot so that may have something to do with it. Thanks Waldi, do you have a link to the one that you installed? Rich, I think I'll stick with the standard tank for the moment, and hope to improve fuel economy Cheers, Sean
  7. I have done about 800 miles with a rebuilt engine and completely refurbished PI system (Neil F) but am only getting 18 - 19 mpg - getting about 145 miles before I need to re-fuel. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong? Many thanks, Sean
  8. Didn't know you were green fingered Roger. You've started something there!

    Bore condition

    Hi Ian, I'm no expert but they don't look too bad to me. Can I see honing marks in the 2nd pic, or have you rubbed with fine sandpaper? I see that the bores are already bored out to 60 thou so hopefully they dont need further boring. Cheers, Sean
  10. Hello Sean


    Thank you for your pictures, I was going to paint the fence today, but I might have something else to do!

    The picture showing the rear box plus rubber straps is how I have fitted mine,  I have just checked the Moss parts book and the rear strap is shorter, it even says the distance between centres so I have the answer!


    Thank you

  13. A bit of Friday fun. Apologies to those who've seen this already in the members area. I had intended to post it only here but seem to have put it in Alec's Inn by mistake.
