    That's good Jeremy. Thanks for the acknowledgement. 😀
    Why is it that these close up pictures of everyone else' car details always look so much cleaner and tidier than mine!

  • Jeremy MkIII30 September 2020

    Final pic, in situ.
    Thanks for the idea Guy.

    Just the easy task of bleeding the clutch now....

  • GuyW30 September 2020

    Ah good. Explains away that puzzle!
    Naturally you will realise that I am very much in favour that you should maintain a large stockpile of used, duplicate and sometimes completely knackered OEM parts.

    Though all my restorations and most of my knowledge is in relation to TDs Iíll concur with Franks assessment. The only felt packing Iíve encountered under the scuttle has been the padding on the center strip

    John,

    Attached is a snapshot from the gearbox section of the WSM showing the angle of the drop lever relative to the clutch fork. It also shows the of the keyway on the cross shaft. This shows a RHD car but it also holds true for a LHD.

    Guy,
    that is just an old carb I use when giving tutorials.





    :)

    At some point I needed a lid screw for some reason so I asked a mate with a stack of old MG parts and he gave me a spare set of carbs to take my pick from, I keep forgetting I've not thrown them out - he uses Webbers on his MGs.

    Guy,
    I take your point about Gummi Pflege, I get the impression it a good product and being water based can have its advantages. I suppose it's like aspirin lots of different manufacturers but remains a reasonable product, if suitable.

    Krytox might tick your chemical boxes, again favoured by German car owners, but you might have to shop around for price as the price will only tick you...

  • Bill Bretherton30 September 2020

    I tend to assume anything German will be ok but it looks like you're right. Maybe the Techsil stuff then.

  • Oggers30 September 2020

    I think whatever we do, we cannot carry on like this. Politics in the UK has been peverted beyond salvation and has been found wanting in almost every aspect for decades.

    High time to wipe the slate, accept that it is simply unfit for purpose, that your vote really does not matter, and for the people to demand credible governance by other means.

    Are you sure you haven't been buying new carbs Nigel?
    These don't seem to be the same as the one you photo'd earlier sitting on a cardboard box. Not you, the carbs.
