Well here goes!

Surely this thread concerns an SE5, in which case, according to my parts manual and the copy that Jim shows on page 7, there is no spacer between the cross member and the gearbox mount.
The pictures shown on page 8 refer to the SE5a.
Maybe that’s why you can’t find one!

Chassis insulation

Agreed Jim, but should there be to absorb some of the shock loading from the suspension?

Should there also be insulation on the front suspension towers?

Chassis Plates

I have noticed on several chassis plates that apart from the chassis number and engine number stamped in their respective places, there are other letters / numbers stamped usually top right of the plate.
Can the experts explain what these are and what they mean, o/d or auto perhaps?

Timing gear marks

Those two thing marks will never line up as they are both in recesses of each gear. To line up perfectly one mark would be in a recess and the other on a tooth. It would seem in this case that lining up the key ways would be the answer.

Brake servo

There are several videos on utube about rebuilding a girling servo from a Triumph GT6. They give a good idea as to the ease/difficulty of the job.

Hi from a new member

Welcome
I also live in West Herefordshire, towards Kington. Where are you located?
I am very slowly restoring a 1969 SE5, so no specific knowledge of GTC’s but always willing to help/chat.

heater control knobs

Did you manage to find the part for your heater control?
If not I may be able to help. Which part do you need, the black screw on ring, or the clear centre piece, or both?

SE5 steering rack

Take a look at the overhaul procedure on the mini forum link below. Not quite the same, but very similar and useful. There is adjustment by shimming, dependent on where there is wear. Well worth stripping to investigate exactly which parts are worn. http://www.theminiforum.co.uk/forums/topic/322176-...
