    You mean the problem might come from "my friend's mechanic" ? Despite being a bit stubborn, he is a nice chap... I will tell him to use more often his break bar, that will help him to break less stuff for sure :) Surprisingly, it looks like only French tool are resisting him :p

    Talking more "mechanic", I would assume the less tooth, the better, as you can then design them bigger in the sa...

    "Aldi has torque wrenches at 19"
    - you couldn't calibrate it for that, yet alone make it and ship it!

    My modsports has a Frog / Midge Mk1 axle in it; are the wheel cylinders 7/8" or 13/16"? I'm having a bit of difficulty identifying some rebuild kits that I've been offered...

    Hi Paul,
    sorry I missed a few updates...
    I was referring to myself as the mobile mech lol

    If you don't get it started today send me an email with your contact details and I'll load the car up with tools. I can shoot over tomorrow in between fixing a Citroen and going to have a look at another ZB project!

    Best of...

    I dont have proper tools to do that and I dont fancy having to get a mechanic back out unless I was sure the car would then start need to try and hook up jump leads and see if it is a problem with starter but again not sure if I can do that as again starter is right under car

    Hi,

    I agree that they seem to be the original bearings and the correct ones. I've looked again and the first number could be 3, So 3MJ T17. The inner bearing has the correct coding as well.

    Certainly we can now see that it was installed the wrong way round and over time that has forced the inner bearing to come away from the race and cause the indents into the hub spacer.

    Can you take it out, run it on the bench and see if the bendix works?

  • Malcolm01 October 2020

    That could say 3MJT17 if you squint a bit? That would be correct for the outer bearing.
