Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

The preliminary diagnosis is the planet carrier bearings are on the way out. Even if it is something else it needs a rebuild; :( Time to get the spanners out. As you say Mark, shame they put the Jag gearbox in. Anyway it's better to have a recon o/d in the car instead of the money in the bank genera...

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Well, today I went along the A329M again, having bypassed the inhibit switch so I could select O/D in all gears; Unfortunately the resonance noise doesn't appear in any other gear apart from top (at least I can't hear anything). The next step is to contact the Laycock experts to see if they have any...

stone mesh bumper thingy 6a

Thanks Mark, for the info;
As standard did they come with a shroud or cowl around the blades to stop air spilling round the sides of the rad?
The Sabre Six has its fan in front of the rad and it needs something, I think.

stone mesh bumper thingy 6a

I agree - the aerofoil shape of the blade suggests it should be sitting behind the radiator and sucking air through - motor direction can be reversed by swapping the + and - over. Also, most of the air will spill round the sides of the rad if there's no cowl. Unless I also have it totally wrong and ...

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Hi Mark,
Yes, only on top gear; the O/D inhibit switch is mounted on top of the gearbox and easily accessible by taking the tunnel off, so that's the next step - try it in 2nd/3rd/4th and hear what happens!
For info, the Mk 2 Jag gearbox with O/D is type GBN made by Moss, no synchro on 1st

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Thanks Jim,
Guy - the noise started in early March, so I changed the fluids to see if this might stop it. Alas, it made no difference.

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Noisy overdrive: (This is tacked onto the end of the previous thread as I don't know how to start a new topic in a project thread !) :( Anyone have experience of diagnosing problems with overdrives? I've posted a youtube video and if you listen carefully you can hear a resonance around 3 beats per s...

6a turns over, fires up and stops when key is let go

Just because you have 12v on the coil side of the ballast resistor it doesn't mean there isn't a fault (you aren't drawing any current so there's no volt drop in the circuit). If the ignition feed path has a connector with "high" resistance then it will drop the voltage and there won't be enough cur...

Sticky relay? I assume that the fan doesn't run on after you switch off the ignition, though. If it did it would still be running (or the battery would be flat!).

So, if you still have the Book, are there photo credits? Although , even if the photographer was still with us he probably wouldn't remember why he took that shot in particular.
Guess we'll never know.
