    Early single line cylinder is = 3/4"

    68-74 US spec dual line cylinder = GMC235 = 3/4" and will bolt up directly to the single line pedal box

    75-on dual line m/cylinder is 13/16" and won't bolt to the early pedal box without modifications--it has a horizontal bolt pattern opposed to the other cylinders having vertical---This cylinder in std form was operated by a pedal driven servo fa...

    Gord, how about a photo or two.

    1966 MKII Midget. I am bothered by what feels like excessive backlash in the drive train. The U-joints are new and tight and I have installed a rebuilt 5-speed gearbox. I have never looked at the diff and thought this might be a good time to do so.

    I removed the carrier assembly from the axle housing. I measured the backlash on the crown gear to be .012". The workshop manual tells me, "T...

    "There are thought to be around one billion neutron stars in the Milky Way, and at a minimum several hundred million, a figure obtained by estimating the number of stars that have undergone supernova explosions." Wikipedia.

    Equate that to tea bags.

    The universe is staggering in its complexity. Perhaps even more amazing, is that humans (some) have even begun to understand and explain ...

    Hi Paul,
    I got some new rear brake shoes and drums from Bob West, I have had a look at them and their curves match perfectly. Bob gets them specially made.

    What is really annoying is that about 4 years ago, I installed new rear drums and I splashed out on some special brake shoes which had Mintex M1144 linings. They were excellent for about 3 months until I decided to top up the lub...

    Thanks for the advice chaps. I have fitted a non return valve between tank and pump so we'll have to wait for the fuel level to drop. After fitting the valve I did find it necessary to get the hose clamps extremely tight, or the pump was sucking a bit of air. I'll report back in a few days.

  • GuyW23 February 2024

    Yes, I saw that. So surprising that these things have lain unknown and undisturbed for so long.
    Similarly.

    I find it really impressive the level of detailed observations and records kept from such times. Amidst the chaos and mayhem of war they still managed to plot and record the precise locations of where each bomb fell, which exploded and which not, what type and with a size estima...

    It's also pretty amazing, how many undiscovered unexploded ww2 bombs there are thought to be, lurking in people's gardens, and even under their houses.

    "Keyham residents forced to leave homes in WW2 bomb alert"

    Yep. Amazing. Small but too heavy to kick. Or is it? 😁

    The non-servo tandem system was only used on North American spec, other markets (UK at least) continued with the single-line system until they got the boosted dual system.

    I don't know the bore of the non-servo master but it can't be that different to the single circuit I would have thought, without having an effect on pedal pressure.

    Whilst the single-circuit servo was optional ...
