    Nigel,et al,: Yes the entire picture is displayed. It was taken in the garage on my cell phone, then forwarded to this, my home computer, downloaded from my email and saved in "my drive" to a folder. From the "folder" I downloaded to the pix to the BBS wesite.

    I don't seem to be able to send multiple pix on a single message. I suppose multiple pix will have to be displayed by individual...

    My TF links had the same bend when I got the car.

    Alan,

    I saw that as well and wondered if the packaging had been pinched from elsewhere. One of the local engineering companies near me gets drills, taps, etc in the usual blue plastic tubes and then stores them in drawers for sale. They often keep the plastic sleeves in a box and when I need such I pop by and rummage for suitable sized sleeves to store tools in.

    I'm not clear why you need to remove the steering rack if it was new in 2014...

    The large nut is a locknut; spray liberally with a penetrating oil like Kroiul. Clean it off to prevent slipping, then put a wrench tightly on the flats of the tie rod, and loosen the nut with the other wrench. Then turn the tie rod until the tie rod end comes off, counting the number of turns to be able to re...

    you quoted earlier
    "The HIF is the same spec as the Moss unit, green spring, BCA needle"

    Moss spec is
    HIF44, RED, BCG
    HS6, RED, BCA

    however, if you read thro historical supercharger forums here, there have been a couple of supercharged A's & B's that Mr Burgess has put green springs on with BCA.

    Gary are you using one of these portable/mobile devices, perhaps a not-so-smart or i-can't phone.

    Is the whole picture being shown, despite the white borders right and bottom.

    Sorry for coming to you with another newbee question.

    How can I free the nut on the tie rod where it meets the tie rod end of my TF? The nuts on both sides of the car are locked solidly. Trying to remove the steering gearbox.

    A shop installed a new Moss rack & pinion replacement in early 2014. It hasn't been exposed to harsh weather or dirt. The flats on the tie rod accept an...

    Hi all,

    Has anyone found a supplier for the aluminium solid, dome headed rivets
    for the TF Body Plate located on the TF(passenger side, RHD) Toolbox Lid ?

    Did the Factory install the Body Plate so that it is generally read through the windscreen (from within the car) from left to right ? I suspect it depended on who fitted it up on a particular day?

    Cheers
    Rob Grantham<...

    Hi Richard, Whilst I don't have a drawing to hand, I can supply the dimensions of an original shaft, groove and snap ring.
    The shaft dia. is 13 mm and the groove is 1.1 mm wide and 1 mm deep.
    The snap ring is about 1 mm thick and it's wall depth is 2 mm. When closed up its inner dia. is about 11 mm and outer dia. about 15 mm.
    Surprisingly the snap ring is not that springy leading me ...
