    Re: Expanding the skill set

    If t'wer mine that would be the answer, Mark. Unfortunately the guy is "funding limited" right now, so it will be done at a pace and price, he has three kids and a wife to keep a roof over. He's got...

    Re: GM killing off the Holden

    Saw a number of them in Thailand, back-when. They struck me as obviously "western" compared with most of the other vehicles there. Surprised at the GM decision to leave Oz.

    Re: DNA tests

    I see no compelling reason to add personal DNA to an inter-relational database, searchable for a fee, just to satisfy curiosity. And it's backwards; anyone allowing their information to be added to...

    Wanted Later ('67~'68) differential.

    Not the entire axle assembly, just the 'chunk.'

    Please PM me on the Forum, as my email address here is a "honeypot."

  13. Re: Interesting video on bearings by a guy that rebuilds gearboxes.

    *SNORK*

    ...so just now bearing down on this thread, reminds me of 'cascades' on newsgroups... much friction, loads both lateral and axial. Quite an impressive set of concerns.

    The Florida State Fair is on, a bit of 'drizzle' at the moment. Had to put on long pants today but still in flip-flops as footgear. I've sympathy for those in "winter" conditions but quite comfy with...

    Good vid, David. Thanks for posting that. His explanation for the galling on a ball-bearing race vs. cone and roller was a good one. Some of the outfits supplying "kits" for rebuilding systems would...

    General MG Re: Field find restoration question ...

    I think Doug nailed it. Mini. Transverse mounted. Gearbox/transaxle, flywheel, clutch and bellhousing look to be M.I.A.
