    "even up a 4 t0 5 degree slope."

    Oops! I meant to type 4% to 5% grades.

    Anyway, it goes up steep hills much better than before.

    I am looking to change the gear and axel oil in my TF. Do I use the same oil and how much?

  • K G Mills01 March 2021

    Hi Franz,
    I very much admire your skill. The seats look great.

    I would guess you are very busy with you own restoration, but are you able to build the 3D printer files for the ashtrays for me?

    regards Kevin M

  • J K Chapin01 March 2021

    Couldn't say it better. Sorry for repeating myself. I didn't remember that I had but that a different discussion :-)

    Lightbulb moment--
    With the ARP bolts, depending on which set you get I have to take the outer corners off the boltheads to get clearance with the camshaft--
    -Maybe-? the original bolts are offset inwards a tiddle for this same reason--maybe--maybe--or not

  • William Revit28 February 2021

    It's probably an orientation thing, I'll check
    The head does go up against a shoulder in the rod
    I don't normally refit them, being a bit of an ARP sucker, anything that's going to get a bit of a stir up gets new ARP bolts, otherwise they just stay put

    Ok got some pics
    slightly offset head
    #1--arrow side has a little machined surface
    #2--hardly any machined surface ...

    Sounds like youíve got it licked, Jud.
    Congratulations!

    I knew a guy who tried to cut some power lines (unintentionally) with a chain saw. He was never the same since. Not that he was the brightest before since he didn't check for the power lines. Since then, I've always made sure that I was wearing ear and eye protection and I always try to stay out of alignment with the blade since you don't know where ti will go if it breaks.

    Good grief. A great example of why you should never get complacent around chainsaws.
    I had a lucky escape last year taking a limb off that was damaging my garage roof.
    My saw is only a cheap electric one, intended for light use and it jolted hard when it hit something like an old nail or whatever it was.
    Stupidly I had climbed up on the fence to reach and the jolt was too much for t...

  • Greybeard 28 February 2021

    Willy, I've seen those arrow marks before but not for a very long time. I have a vague idea my dad said they should point towards each other but I can't remember why.
    Do they have an angled surface under the heads to lock them into their seats in the end of the rods? Maybe to stop them rotating when you torque them up?
    I really don't remember and Google has let me down tonight.

  • MGA RHD STEERING RACK FOR SALE

    Hi,

    I have an MGA right hand drive steering rack that I no longer require.

    I bought it when I was restoring our MGA 1500 as I had the feeling I might do another. I now have other cars that take a priority so donít need this steering rack anymore. I was going to put it on eBay, but I thought someone here might appreciate it more. It will probably need servicing, thought the rubb...
