Re: leaking gearbox

It’s probably the axle tube gaiters. Notorious leak spot, especially if they are the split type with a row of small bolts along a seam. Mine ...... out took multiple attempts to stop it, but have finally cured it now.

Re: Rear airbags PSV/MOT FAIL help needed

Even though its bagged it still needs dampers though - so I'd agree with the tester tbh.
Do air bags have internal damping? never heard of that before...

Re: Front bulkhead repair - inner arch

I have never used that panel - but in general Schofields panel stuff is pretty much spot on quality.

Re: Cant get the engine to go in

I'm assuming you have lined up the clutch with a clutch alignment tool - some times you need to rotate the engine a touch to align the splines.

Re: Non starter

I have Kadrons on mine - and I love them - I think they a great simple carbs and they transformed my bus. Check you don't have fuel dripping out of the brass pipe (accel pump) that goes into the throat of the carb, if this is dripping the accel pump is still over adjusted too far - common! Have you ...

Re: Tappet double lesson

They are Heavy Duty steel pushrods - the OG ones were aluminium - Normally with steel pushrods you can run a much tighter tappet (virtually zero) as they expand at the same temp as the rest of the engine componnents so need very little lash.

Re: Oil temprature double checking ?

I have a VDO guage and the oil temp sender in the Oil relief blanking plug (Machine 7 sell them) - I found this was neater and seemed more accurate. Actually I tell a lie - I just looked at M7 and can't find it - Heritage sell them though.... see below. You remove the oil relief cap on the bottom o...

Re: Choke

Yes - you can pick up + from the coil - that's where the factory single carb took its choke power from (and fuel cut solenoid).

Re: Cylinder head cc’s

I think you have this backwards (or I've read it wrong) - most stock heads CC to around 44-50cc ish (i.e the combustion chamber will physically hold 44cc of liquid) - so you normally remove some aluminium around the combustion chambers, usually by unshrouding valves, cutting the chamber right back t...
