  1. Thanks all, Engine and gearbox our and new parts due tomorrow. It’s actually easier to do this as my overdrive is from an Austin Healey and as the shaft and clamp under the solenoid is boxed in it makes fitting the box through the car very difficult. Cheers.
  2. Hi Waldi See attached photo. Its going to difficult to get at the arm to prepare it for welding. Cameron
  3. Thanks Waldi, I suppose that’s my best option. Cameron
  4. Hi All Just but the gearbox back in after a rebuild and new clutch.I refitted the clutch slave cylinder and was fitting the rod to the middle hole on the drop arm when I realised it was loose.It wasnt until I crawled out from under the car that I could see that the weld had broken between the arm and the shaft. I realise that I will need to reweld this however how do I make sure the arm is in the right position in relation to the shaft.I was assuming it should be slightly back from vertical, any thoughts? Thanks Cameron
  5. Clutch on it’s way to Precision Clutch’s,happy that’s the best choice for me. Thanks again Alec, keep well. Cameron
  6. Hi Richard I have spoken to Steve about this and he drove the car prior to removing the box. We both found the slipping difficult to pin down as it was inconsistent. I will be taking the box down to Steve in the next few weeks and we will strip it down and see whats going on with the overdrive. At this time my main concern is getting a quality clutch organised, I'll see about reconditioning the current cover and will also give Gibby a ring,thanks. Thanks Peter, I'm glad you agree, just need to set it up again for another 90K+ miles Cameron
  7. Thanks Alex , I will contact Precision Clutch as I'm determined to get this right first time. Peter, a lot of work was done on this engine just prior to my ownership and as can be seen the flywheel and clutch were balanced. Thanks Cameron.
  8. Hi All With a lot of help from a fellow club member,we removed the gearbox from my 1971 Tr 6 today. The reason for removing the box was because the drive started slipping, however it wasn't clear if it was the clutch or the overdrive (A Type). Either way the box had to come out. The clutch was fitted on 27th of April 1993 and has covered approx 95,000 miles. I acquired the car 4 years later and removed the engine and gearbox to replace the ring gear on the flywheel. I decided at the time to leave the clutch and only replaced the fork pin with a new hardened one. This decision has been vindicated as its been fine over all that time, but what to do now. What do you all think of the condition of the clutch, and would my best plan be to get it reconditioned, I would like to keep the Laycock cover .I can't see any reason for the drive slip from the clutch,the shaft , fork and pin are fine, any thoughts Thanks Cameron
  9. Thanks for all the ideas, Andy I like your solution, and as you say they can be cut to fit. Don those trays would be great,we do have Costco in the UK,I will check it out. Alan that's a new site on me,some great items there as well. I'm sure I will find what I'm after. Cheers Cameron
  10. Hi kevo Not really, i want boxes so I can take the out and in. There must be someone making these. Thanks for the suggestion cameron
  11. Hi All Acquired a couple of tool cabinets this week and am desperately trying to find a supplier of boxes to fit the drawers. I thought this would be easy, however I can't find anything in the UK. This is what I'm after, http://www.ebay.com/itm/16-6-x6-x2-Red-Plastic-Boxes-Organizer-Trays-Toolbox-Dividers-fit-Lista-Vidmar/350682439072?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D777000%26algo%3DABA.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D35389%26meid%3De1cbedf60ca54d4f8fdd148c35cdef9e%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D380312762610 Any ideas ? Thanks
  12. Classic Silicon hoses are excellent, used them earlier this month for my Austin 8
  13. Hi Chris I'm the present owner of LFB 700K and have been for the last 17 years, happy to tell you all I know of the cars history, have its full history pre and post your fathers ownership. Don't tell any of the family but the car has been running on triple webers for the last 20 years, doesn't seem right with your family background. First picture is a few years ago while crossing the Pyrenees during a 2500 mile trip through Spain and France. The second was taken at Harrogate last year after I returned the car to its original damson. Regards Cameron
