Re: Link Pins

Sounds like your MOT man needs some training then. If they were adjusted like that it should of failed several MOT's.....

Should be a locking method, so castle nuts with split pins or nylocs. Same as other fixings on a bus.

Re: 1600 ADR Engine Rebuild

Do you mean that was under the bearing?

If so, someone has bodged it in the past. Should never have spacers / shims under the bearing

Re: Squeaky Rear Suspension Bushes - arrgh!!

Good to see someone is using the search function. You don't get that in FB.

Pretty common to have them rub, as with all repro parts the fit isn't always good. Easy fix though with an angle grinder, good rubbers and talc or red grease.

Re: Can the wrong carb damage an engine ?

It would be under carb'd for sure. If the jets were large enough it may well run, but you'd be better with 40's.

Re: R/H Headlamp Glass

Thanks for looking

I've got two RHD, RHS Hellla glass but both with chips so they wouldn't make a good pair.

Re: single cab spring plate problem

If the torsion bar isn't flush with the end of the spring plates then it's simply too deep into the centre mount in the torsion housing.

Straight arms at Split.
Bent arms are Bay, so they have clearance issues.
