    B*gger, forgot the graph to show 20w-50 range against gear oil range -

  • Nigel Atkins16 July 2018

    Adrian,
    most find, a good quality, 20w-50 engine oil fine in the gearbox provided it's not left in too long or the level allowed to drop too much. It's not too thin if the oil isn't too old or too worn. Surprisingly even owners that change the engine oil every year neglect changing the engine oil in the gearbox or even checking the level.

    A thorough change of oil might help if it's ...

    John,

    Using the mini front dampers that doesn't surprise me as they operate about half way along the upper link so have a short travel, the mini rear dampers connect to the wheel end of the swing arm IIRC so a far more likely candidate. I added different lower pick-ups to the rear axle and small turrets in the top of the axle hump and used a similar damper. The rear dampers from the Spax ki...

    Filled or not filled, diggen the filler out will not disturb the strength.

  • Nigel Atkins15 July 2018

    Well done. Talk about missing the bleeding obvious! I've always had an added-in separate switch on my car that I'd totally forgot about the original blower switch.

    Thanks Dave. That makes more sense now.
    It was a while ago when I took the exhaust off and I donít recall removing any mid section bracket. I kept all the original fittings, and thereís definitely only the two rear mounts, so the mid section mount was a mystery.

  • Dave O'Neill 215 July 2018

    The middle mounting attaches to the rear bulkhead.

    The wings changed in Ď68 I believe, prior to the slim bumpers.

  • C MADGE15 July 2018

    Iím in the process of putting various bits back onto my 1500 after some welding on the underside.

    How does the mid section of the exhaust attach to the underside? (I have the rear mounts sorted) My floors are new are there doesnít seem to be any mounting holes for brackets. The Moss catalogue shows the bracket but not how it attaches to the car.
