  1. One left thread, one right thread with a tube between these at the ends, might want a different size hole and thread, https://www.rallydesign.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=9103
  2. I'm a fan of the old Payen copper gasket, as the all the holes in the copper is rolled over and so there is no seep thru the gasket itself. Pushrod side will be sealed better. Heritage Gaskets still have some of these gaskets at £ 20 +p&p http://www.heritagegasketsltd.co.uk/products/4588089187/triumph-payen-ref-no-ae350/9368918 I think its only for the early blocks NOT recessed There website is not up to date including prices, also good manifold gasket as well!

  3. Tim Hope these couple of photos help?
  4. I've had a look at mine, the central stop bracket with the stop bolt on mine the bracket is more of a right angle, this would allow the shaft to twist up more, you would have to lengthen the rods to the butterflies. This would the make the choke cam a little more close, the cam doesn't look quite the same as mine the stop pin is in a slightly different place, allowing the outer end to drop a bit more. I could try and get some photos if that would help? John
  5. I would close up the SC with the push rod and tie with either a plastic tie or some wire, it reduces the volume of fluid inside, make sure the bleed nipple is at the top.
  6. Both Moss and Rimmers say they are in stock as here https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-611565 for black or chrome. What programs are you using?

  8. I have one these apart at the moment, and I feel there is real design /drawing problem with the radius where the bearing fits, there should be much more of a radius at this point, the bearing has plenty cut away on it to accomadate a larger radius on the hub. If you had this much undercut/minimum chamfer on a crankshaft it would surely break there. I know they are not failing that often, but engineering wise it leaves a bit to be desired. John
  9. Mine is a red fibre washer, This moss part item #79 may be very close but I haven't measured it, you would have to check, https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr5-6/clutch-transmission-drivetrain/overdrives-components/overdrive-a-type-tr5-6-1967-76.html John
  10. NTC I dont believe you are correct, the gears for 4 and 6 are different part numbers, and as far as I know the 6 cannot be turned over like the 4 cylinder ones can. John
  11. I understood that the 6 gear could not be turned over like the 4 cylinder ones, The alignment with the crank would be wrong, I think you should see oilways in the outer groove of the gear, they should be facing the rear. The oil comes from the holes in the end of the cam to lube the chain. Please correct me if I'm wrong pls. John
  12. I have a Hobby blast cabinet, and also use the Lidl vacuum cleaner, but it just blocks the paper filter very quickly, I'm looking at something like this to see if I can separate the dust before the vacuum cleaner, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sinide-Collector-Filter-Cyclone-Black/dp/B07PYNG4NK/ref=sr_1_16?dchild=1&keywords=cyclone+dust+collector&qid=1602401813&sr=8-16 I have been using blasting sand, which is very effective it getting the items clean, but does break down into much smaller sand particles and produces a lot of dust, perhaps I should using a different medium?

  13. I had the same problem, but since have ordered head and manifold gaskets, not bad price either. As posted earlier they had problems with the internet and phones. The website is not up to date with the prices, and you have to phone to pay. This is their alternative address Barry Rothwell, atlasautoparts@aol.com This was back in June this year. Let me know is you don't succeed. John
  14. Dont forget Trackrite will only do the Toe In, I dont remember witch brackets you should have on your car, notches on the trailing arm brackets. I guess you have to start with the originals and work from there. This site has good info. https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5c6dec53b10f25d4edf0b3f7/t/5d0196c7f7754c00012d7787/1560385225242/Rear+Suspension+Geometry.pdf John
  15. Payen JA510 gaskets are available from Heritage Gaskets in Slough.
