    Dave--that'd be 3- Mark made a mistake with the 9

    Mark-
    To me the mark is a little too far towards the toe-meaning it needs a touch more backlash by moving the crownwheel accross probably 2-3 thou---BUT--You have to be real carefull moving 2nd hand markings around as the thing has probably been like that all it's life and worn into that position and if moved it 'could' be noisy--bit o...

    Hi Chris,

    OK, what do you use that adapted spanner for?

    There's a fair bit of guessing what it might be going on here, jumping at stuff that may/may not be at fault

    1st things 1st
    Need to find if there is a cylinder out at idle making it rock

    If you don't want to do the plug shorting thing, I'd find a tune up workshop near you there somewhere that has a scope and get it hooked up to find the cause

    Sometimes those rubber-sandwich brackets don't hold together very long. I wacked a bolt through the middle of one of mine to keep it together when it failed.

    Chris that bracket that I posted has a block of rubber almost 1" thick glued between the two pieces of metal. It's probably clearer in this shot. I found when welding the new piece on that the glue melted with the heat. Cheers

    Thanks guys, my rear brackets do seem to have a certain “rustic charm” that I thought was quite in keeping with some of the other technology of the TF.
    I just bought a roll of SS wire and gas for my mig welder and fabricating a copy of the front bracket looks like a nice little project.

    That sounds right David and Chris, especially as I suspect that engine was left over winter with unused fuel residue in the float chambers. Certainly the boat was parked on a trailer beside the owners house where I passed it most days.
    The hard white stuff I imagine is oxidised metal.

    I am beginning to wonder if many TD owners in the UK read this Board, except of course for those who have kindly commented so far, as I had hoped that somebody would have stepped up and offered a pair of dampers that must be sitting under dozens of workshop benches throughout the land.

    So I ask again, has anybody got a pair of these dampers that I can buy from them at a fair price.?

    Mine are 13 years old with no problems yet. But being a single circuit system I have been thinking of changing them just in case.
