Front hub bearings

However, has anyone any experience of using the Revington spacer kit? I believe it uses shims to accurately fill the space between the two bearing inners on the stub axle: Here it is: https://www.revingtontr.com/product/rtr3463k/name/spacer-kit-front-wheel-bearing Looks like a sensible approach to ...

Why not just pin it like the factory did ?. :?: :idea:
Absolutely, the original mod used a Mills Pin. I don't have any Mills Pins :!: so I do the same with a short SS self-tapper. Just be careful the input isn't blocked.

David not forgotten the suspension mounts.
Have pulled out my drawings and asking around for the materials.

Thanks Mark. I'm aware you have more important concerns but knew you'd still be on the case. I'm a little behind my planned timescale so there's no immediate urgency. :)

Clutch master cylinder

I've recently replaced some of the brake pipes and found an 11mm flare nut spanner fitted perfectly. A normal spanner will soon round off the flats, as you've found. :wink:

Edit date created for MP4 files

Is it possible to copy files from a phone/ camera to a PC and maintain original dates :?: Quick answer - I don't know but probably. I know Microsoft Photos (free!) will import photos from any device but I haven't actually used it. I always put the photos/ media files in dated sub-folders within a n...

THIS should do the job. :wink:

Scimitar Coupe Handbrake Adjuster

My Coupe has the top connector without any adjustment so perhaps they were late Coupe/early SE5.

There is plenty of cable adjustment at the rear brakes and it's easily accessible :wink: .

Speedometer gearing

Hm, the gearbox speedo driven and drive gears are 21 teeth and 7 teeth so nearly the same as the diff (3.583 to 1), sort of equalising each other. I'm going to let you do the maths, not had enough coffee yet!☹️ So the speedo drive ratio is 3.0 and the axle is 3.583 which gives 837tpm (3 / 3.583 * 1...

Speedometer gearing

The original speedo in my SE4b was 960 TPM but my rebuilt one is 1,000 TPM. If my maths is correct that's 4.2% lower geared which isn't too different, works OK with lower profile tyres and is within the original spec of +/- 10%. Also, the speedo usually reads high so a rise in TPM should make it mor...

Coupe/SE5 heater matrix and clutch-lever gaiter

A couple of items on eBay which might be of interest. Neither are anything to do with me. There's a heater matrix for a Coupe/SE5 at £24.99 or best offer. Might be worth having and getting reconditioned as a spare ..... just in case! :wink: There is also a clutch-lever gaiter which would fit the 2-r...
