Coolant level

Hi everyone, just a quick question regarding coolant level. I've just completed a rebuild and when filling with coolant I noticed that the auto choke housing is higher than the level in the thermostat housing when filled. Just thinking about trapped air.

I took some pictures before removing but the wiring had been chopped and changed quite a bit so doesn't relate to the wiring diagram. Any help would be much appreciated. Chee...

Essex engine problems - again

Trevor, why are you suspecting that the O/D of the bearings are wrong. Can you tell if they have spun out of position. There should be no wear on the outside. And as roymck says, use a bore mic not verniers to measure.

Essex engine problems - again

PAS Servicing

Hi Gavin, if you are anywhere near Mark I can recommend Hydosteer in Dewsbury. They serviced mine for £125. Stripped, cleaned, fitted new seals rebuilt, painted and pressure tested.

3 rod gearbox & overdrive

Hi Mark, thanks for the offer. I have a worn 3rd/4th selector fork. I have a spare box but it is just the same. I have now managed to source a good second hand one from a classic gearbox firm in London. I just thought that at £50 I would take a chance plus it was local. I will be needing a new mount...
