Re: Bottom end rebuild

Great thanks Broady that's a big help. Started to price up a bottom end rebuild seems to be a bit more than I'd thought it'll be but worth it in the long run. Came across some Scat kits too which look good. Just weighing up my options

Ok I won't stress to much about appling a good amount of force. It's not far from straight so shouldn't need much to get it back into place.

Clutch tubing / fuel line moving problem

Hi all, Has anyone had the problem of the clutch cable tube that runs through the chassis coming unfixed? I took off the gear stick lever and noticed the weld had snapped off as could see the bracket which allowed the clutch pipe to raise up (I'm assuming it's welded to the floor pan?). This isn't t...

Accelerator cable

Hi all,

Just wondering how to I replace the accelerator cable? I'm just unsure of where to feed it into pedal end. I have a Haynes manual but doesn't seem to cover it and when looking briefly at where it's fed into I wasn't sure of the process. Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers

Re: Fuel pump Bakelite flange peice dropped

Thanks for the help. To be fair it's very brittle the one I removed so I'm hoping the are odds on my side and gets chewed up. Heard mixed comments but think I'll take the decision to leave it. I'll be changing the oil once it fired up again so will try do some fishing. Thanks for the replies
