Sorry, all I have is the Haynes manual. It's pretty good, and comes with lots of needle charts and applications. Covers H, HS, HIF series and a couple of weirdos. $12 from JC Whitney. A. B. Bonds

Jarls' post on the causes of rear leakage out of a TD engine is spot on. The spiral cut into the crank can wear when the main bearings wear. Unless the rear cap is renewed (together with line boring)

The black label (pre-75) and blue label (post 75) LH ODs had different drive gears. The down side is that to change them you have to take the tranny/OD nearly completely apart. I'd find another speed

Bert makes a VERY good point here. One of the pinions has 20 teeth, the other 21. Don't think that you fix the problem by swapping pinions. What you will do is tear up both gears, and they are gettin

Whitworth (a real person) developed precision machinery in England during the 19th century. The systems developed were standardized so that tools (spanners, taps, dies) could be built consistently.
