    Fan woes

    Hi Richard, please do you know from which car make the shorter fan extension is coming ? Thanks, Guy
  2. Hi Mark, I have one scuttle wood off the car, if you still need additional informations let me know. Guy
  3. Thank you Tony and Peter, now I am a bit more confident to drill these holes as a mistake on this part means a new bottom engine replacement. Regards, Guy
  4. hello, you got it Rod they are Deves rings, they were included in a liners & pistons kit, the pistons are labeled County. Just in case your picture disappear the website with full instructions is www.deves.com Once again this forum proved his efficiency. Thank you all for taking care of my problem. Regards, Guy
  5. Hello, I am fitting County rings on piston and have no problem with rings set 1 and 2 But do not see how to fit the third set labeled 5600-D3 and composed of 4 rings: 2 flats one ondulated and another octogonal. Can someone tell me how to have this set properly assembled on the piston ? Regards, Guy Notte
  6. Thanks Tony but my question was how to drill the holes,I have drawn two red dots on the photos of the cap to show how I imagine the in and out site of the hole will be, is that correct ? regards, Guy
  7. Thank you for your fast answer, in fact the red dots are done by me on the pictures I have taken of my cap., here is the figure I received with the kit.
  8. Hello, The kit fitting instructions says that " You have to drill 2 extra 3/8" dia. oil drain holes in the bottom of the rear main cap, one each side of the original at a similar angle. This will remove all unecessary pressure from the seal and will not affect you oil pressure or the main bearing lubrication ". But the figure provided do not shows if the holes have to be parallel to the original hole and in that case it should look like the red dots on the two pictures (notice that the red dot are done by me as a projection for the holes.) Can someone who had the opportunity to
  9. Hello, Thank you to Andrew who pm me the coordinates of David who sales the oils seal fuel pump in the UK. He kindly sent me the correct seal in Belgium, but I don't know how many remains as he told me that someone bought him a full box. Do not use email to contact him as he has currently some problems with his computer. Here is the Phone/address of David http://homepage.ntlworld.com/carljdavies/Bearing%20Contacts.htm Bye, Guy Notte

  11. Hello, are there any better or equivalent alternatives to Shellac to seal the rear main bearing cap engine ? Guy
  12. Thanks Rhodri and Don, I heated the ring at 220°C and at the second try it was succesfull. Using the G-clamp method is really tricky as when you hammer the ring the clamp become loose and goes away and when you introduce the ring it has tendancy to go fully down on one side that make it impossible to introduce the opposite side, so at my last try I fitted a spacer to keep the ring as much parrallel to the flywheel as possible then I maintained the ring with a L shaped iron bar to stabilize the G-clamps when hammering. Don, my ring is a NOS that I bought in the US and it is probably more dif
  13. Hello, to-day I cannot succeed to fit a shrink-on ring gear to the flywheel using the 3 G-clamps method recommended in the service guide. I heat the ring in an oven at 120°c half an hour and put the flywheel for one hour in the freezer, before to fit the ring I spray some W40 on the flywheel side to ease the process but it was not possible to insert the ring, I retry the full process 3 times, but unsuccessfully. Now I have some doubt with this method, did someone who successfully fit the ring using this or another way can give me some tips. Thanks. Guy Notte
  14. Hi, the oil seal is located at the bottom end of the diaphragm axle, it is located under a metal washer that is crimped by 3 recesses in the aluminium bottom center, with a small screwdriver and hammer, carrefully remove the recesses and that will free the washer followed by the seal Guy
  15. Hi, probably yes, but the people who sale them is currently away for 2 weeks, as soon as I can contact him, I will post all the infos . Cheers, Guy
