  1. When fitting the right angled speedo drive are there any recommendations for lubricating the right angled drive?
  2. Swapped gearbox for box with A type overdrive and just refitting. To be honest got in a muddle with the rear support bracket, the one that mounts to the body with four bolts; is it the right way up e.g. flanges pointing down (picture attached)?
  3. I do not know of flywheel being lightened but will listen very carefully when hand turned/ started up.
  4. Gearbox in place and now for final fitment. The reason that the spigot bush had so much float was because 2 * 1/2 inch bushes had been fitted previously. Replacing these with a single 1" bush was perfect. Lesson learnt for me is that the as sold 1/2 inch bush is smaller than 1/2" at 11.2 mm. The 1" is bigger than 1 " at 26.9 mm.
  5. Please could somebody measure the depth, in their crank, of the recess in the crank where the spigot bush goes?
  6. Is there a visual difference for long back or short back crank and or flywheel? Is there a measurement or some other way of confirming the variant of crank/flywheel that I have?
  7. add to previous post. Seen that there are two flywheel variants that are matched to the crank (short or long). Any suggestions on how to check for long/short crank and corresponding flywheel? Okay so if original plate wrong way round caused the damage, should I be looking for something to confirm (trying to figure this out in my head)?

  9. Windows 10 upgrade wiped me out last night! Gearbox was removed to replace with refurbished box and the addition of A type overdrive. Old clutch plate and pressure plate intact with no visual damage. New Borg & Beck clutch plate, pressure plate and bearing being fitted. On the old gearbox input shaft the spigot end edge is "shiny"; hence why I think that is how the flywheel bolts damaged. Too late to check if old plate was the correct way round but can say it operated okay when driving. Again checking the old plate can see no damage and inspected floor and no obvious debris.
  10. What do I need to check the fit of?
  11. My car was registered May 72. Spigot bearing is in crank and I replaced that some 25 years ago when original rebuild done as I have old spigot bearing. Noticed also flywheel crank mount bolts have wear on them possibly caused by clutch plate splines on the input shaft. Borrowed a TR6 input shaft tonight to align clutch plate for refit. Spigot end of this fits old bearing (this is worn) but not the one in the crank, that may be a red herring. I do recall from a conversation many years ago that my crank is "cross drilled" although cannot remember the context that comment was made in. Just been r
  12. do these two different cranks have a different size spigot bush?
