I am in need of help again.
My transmission remote control cover is worn quite back where the shaft
goes through the housing, especially the rear hole. Has anyone drilled out
the housing and installed brass bushings as Horst Schach described in his
"The Complete M.G. TD" book on page 108? I'm not sure I want to try this
myself so I have checked with a couple of local machine shops and they
aren't willing to do the work either. I'm looking for a machine shop that
will do the work (hopefully some one out there knows of one) or someone who
has done it themselves and can give me some pointers. I do have a Shop
Smith like mentioned in the book but am concerned about being able to drill
out for the bushing since my hole is now egg shape. I'm afraid the drill
bit will wonder and not stay centered.
Thanks again and thanks for the responses on my question about the gasket
between the bell housing and transmission case. I still don't understand
why a paper gasket isn't or can't be used if silicone sealer should be used
to make a seal. And yes Ed I did change the seal.
