  1. Re: Questions about stator tube and trafficator fixation

    Matt

    Getting back to your original statement 'oil to seep through the olive nut because the stator tube doesn't reach the end cover'

    I have just made a phone call to AH Spares and the overall...

    Re: BJ7 Carb Drama

    I have been in touch with Burlen Carburetors and it would appear that there are variants on the HS6 body, though the book does not indicate this, depending on what car was being supplied, inlet...
  5. Re: Replacing BJ7 Dash - Detailed Photos/Schematics

    You can get a good idea of what goes where with the small hand book as well. Most switches were push pull, one with a slight twist as well - lights. The only toggle type switch is the Overdrive one....

    Re: Side exhaust system for BJ8

    I have a stock exhaust on my BJ7 and I find that just putting the soft top up increases the DBs inside the car for some reason. I would love a side exhaust just for the ground clearance factor but...

    Re: Undercarriage Refresh

    If you can get the grease and the major surface rust off the metal then I would go for two coats of Epoxy Mastic - at least that is what it is called on this side of the pond, it will be a semi gloss...

    Re: cam bearings

    When I rebuilt my engine, the cam bearings were pulled in one by one by a clever length of steel shaped for the job and the bearings did not require reaming or fettling at all. Just used some...

    Re: BT7 stator tube

    Why don't you talk to AH Spares ? Ah just noticed that the hub came from Moss and the wheel from AH spares.

    You say that you have checked the cylinder and it is solid. Do you mean it is solid in the back plate? It should not be, it should slide, as the piston moves out and the shoe is forced onto...

    Now you have to find a torque wrench to do it up again, unless you have one already :congratulatory:
