Propshaft Query

Tell me about that Jim. :evil: My first 6b has all sorts of bolts and drill tap screws holding it in place. :cry: The Galve GTC chassis I have just passed on for a rebuild had the spacer washers under the plate and even these were "Galved" to the chassis. Lucky I have access to a "Gas Axe" to warm t...

Propshaft Query

Yes its probably just historic, makes a noise on the gearbox when it gets bent by hitting something OR being used as a jacking point.
The Galved Chassis cars had it and the GB mounting bolted up BEFORE dipping and the bolts are a right pain to remove without heat, ask me how I know :evil:

Propshaft Query

Correct Jim

It has a large cutout that wouldn`t protect a lot.

It`s listed as " CROSS CHANNEL/CROSSBRACE, SUMP ", but its behind the engine :?:

Propshaft Query

Ian check that the gearbox is no where near the stiffener plate that is bolted forwards of the Rear GB mounting. I have chases all sorts of noises over the years and a few have been due to this plate either being bent, or soggy rear mountings allowing the two to touch. This plate sometimes have spac...

Thermostat?

Ok Dom

The Chevette rack uses a slightly longer input pinion shaft IIRC.
If you do a search on here the different racks has been well covered.

Thermostat?

Hi Dom Yes I have One on the shelf just now. There are 3 different types/shapes, but they all should fit. The one I have is from My SST, so should be the same on yours. I normally rebuild customers Own racks, but could do you 1 on exchange @ £150 delivered and you post me yours back when swapped?. M...

Thermostat?

there seems to be some slack in the steering when straight ahead Could be Wheel bearings, top or bottom ball joints or more than likely wear in the rack, it was in my case. :w I`ve had some really loose ones to rebuild that came from MOT`d cars, even one from abroad that was full of water georges r...

GTC 404 MOT Emissions

Will`s Middlebridge # 42 failed the emissions test first time, even though its a 2.9 Injection engine. :( After debating weather to take it for a thrashing to clear the carbon out of the exhaust the tester told me to just turn the engine OFF and let it cool down a bit as the fan was cycling on and o...

Way too low

Length of shocker is irrelevant when on the car for ride height. :!:
UNLESS its TOO Short and the damping rod hit the inside of the shocker body. :w

top water hose

I noticed that Will`s has damages on his top hose on #42 but it has been moved and reset away from the alternator. :( My mate at the farm saw it and told me a lot of tractors use this type of Gates hose because its cheaper than getting the correct moulded type of hose. I would have thought that part...
