Hi Nigel, I measured the 15 degree range between on and off (or Hysteresis) that my Revotec thermostatic switch has, in degrees Fahrenheit. This is mainly because my MGAs temperature gauge is marked in degrees Fahrenheit.
One very imortant detail I have not reported is that I have now been able to verify that centreline of the gearbox and crankshaft are very well suited. The bellhousing will pick up nicely onto the block with a new adapter plate as proven with my cardboard template . And the depth of the gbox housing below the centre line is no more than the MG box excepting that the gbox tail is a bit ...
Anton, You are correct, the Y steering shaft/pinion is shorter than a TD's, but the rack is the same.
Some years ago when I replaced my TD R&P, I used one from a Y, but need to have the pinion extended. This was done by a professional hot rod restorer and will never come apart - press fitted sleeve and pins.
Tom, have you pulled the R&P apart to check on wear. cheers Stuart

All I can say is that it fits, seems very well made, is lighter and the car runs cooler. My car has a home made r...
to be fair to Moss (although I don't know why I should be as they weren't fair to me) they show the Revotec kit for the crossflow rad, which includes a 9" blowing fan to be fitted in front of the rad, as you've found Rovotec slimline fans are not slim enough to fit behind the rad. -

Its reinstalled, but I have been away for a week. In addition I have started other maintenance. I want to top up the oil in the Ford Type9 gearbox, but have so far failed to remove the filler / level plug - a common issue I believe. I left it soaking in penetrant and haven't had a chance since I got back of attempting to loosen it. I think it won't be until Spring that I discover whether the f...
