    Re: AH 3000 rear disc brake conversion

    My pointr egarding the rear brake conversion is that the drum brakes are probably sufficient and the dollars should be spent on improving the front brakes.

    Re: BJ8 Adjusting valve clearance

    Exactly what glemon said. This is not precision work. There is plenty of leeway on the cam to do the valve adjustment.
    And not to complicate matters, if one set of valves is at overlap, about...

    Why are we talking about American V8 manifolds. The configuration is nothing like the AH3000. The discussion should be on American straight 6 manifolds and other Britixh cars with straight 4...

    Yes, check trans oil but it is difficult to do. Best just drain and replace....

  20. Re: The Panhard Rod is Supposed to be Straight, Right?
