    Overdrive or non?
    If non-overdrive, did you position the mainshaft correctly via the shims at the rear? 2nd & 3rd mainshaft gears should centre on laygear counterparts. The pic shows incorrect alignment - the two yellow lines should line up.
    If not, the gears will slip out. In this photo, 3rd gear was slipping out as the shaft was too far back.

    regarding the 5252RPM, one RR I've used has the x-axis accurate on road speed, but clearly scales the RPM off this somehow rather than measuring directly from ignition pulses as the scale not only fails to correspond with the actual rpm, but the variation factor is wildly inconsistent. So road speed is the only meaningful scale along the x-axis. (OK for repat sessions with the same car on the ...

    Hi Len,
    Can you compare the lobe profile with any of these shown in my image? Left is either a STD late TD, TF, Y-Type, Morris 10 or Wolseley 4/44 cam. I believe they are all the same timing (5/45 degree) but vary slightly in lift. You could measure your lift to see which. Centre is a STD TC cam. (Note two machined "grooves" on back end) Right is a factory 168551 cam.

    If it looks like th...

    Tend to agree with Denis on this
    The figures (graph) look a bit weird
    Specially that sudden drop at the end

    Fuel pressure maybe dropping off under load

    Gentlemen: I'm finally taking apart my 54 tub. Have a question! The rear quarter panels and the wheel arches are shown as separate parts, Are they separate? Mine don't seem to want to come apart and I don't want do any damage trying to force them apart. So! Im wondering if it is just 60+ years of gunk binding them together?
    Have looked in the archives but can't find anything relevant.

    Brexit is bad for Engalnd and the EU. A possibly bigger worry could be the US elections in 2016. The Americans could actually elect a reality show MC who's campaign people have close ties with Putin. Really scary

    Since I'm just about done with Bill's TF I can start working on my own car. I like to hear from those of you who have rebuilt your engine with non stock parts, be it pistons , rods, cams, etc. I like to know your thoughts either good or bad. No need for crank suggestions as I have a Moss forged crank and I don't see me changing it out.

    Send your thoughts to....
