    Wow - well done!

  • G Evans02 June 2020

    Not sure if it is still the case, you used to be able to import car parts and not pay duty. Fella I know was purchasing Chevy Cameros in the States dismantling into bits, importing, paying no duty, reassembling, converting to RH drive and selling for a monza profit.

    Not a viable proposition for a TD.

    This is one reason GST was placed on imported items.

    Peter,
    The cheese head screws were cheap and easily available along with the stiff nuts. They do a good job of holding the bearing. I added the spacer washer to ensure the fan disc was actually on the woodruf key, My fan disc seems to be made of copper and is in two part soldered togethe? No idea if original but it was on the car in 1972 when I rebuilt it. It was this that touched the heads ...

    Peter Best angle I could get in situ. The bolt in question can be seen next to the timing cover and tubes. The clip is not in place yet

  • William Revit02 June 2020

    Wasn't sure which ratio you would use in the UK
    I spend most of my time talking to my US mates and they use S/R ratio as a std.---but you know what I mean--- We're stuck with what we've got now ,it's the longest possible rod that can be fitted, the stack height of the rings is at a minimum and the gudgeon pin is up to the top of the oil ring, nowhere else to go---------but it's working fine li...

    The clip and bolt is for the carb overflow tubes

  • William Revit02 June 2020

    Yep
    Looks like too much thinners soaking through to me as well, overflooding the last coat or two trying to get a wet smooth looking finish off the gun will cause it , better off dusting several light coats on and rubbing back between if you need to and plenty of drying time between coats

  • P Hehir02 June 2020

    In the pic above I've just noticed that there is an unnamed bolt and a clip shown just above the fan. This is almost certainly for the two overflow fuel lines that go over the top of the bearer plate and secure them both. A pic of the original clip in situ is shown here. Cheers

    This is the fan on my C39PV2 gennies Rod. This one came from a 4/44. The armature will need to be extended to permit the installation of the tacho drive and the end plate will also need to be changed. The green paint is the indication of its origins. Cheers
