One nice thing about TD's is that they have a 15" wheel and skinny tires. Can you think of another car that has a 15" wheel and skinny tires? Can you say VW? I thought you could. Point is that tires

1. Not terribly difficult if you have the right tools and use common sense. 2. You will need two special tools to do this job. You will need something like a slide hammer and some means of attaching

Welcome to the wonderful world of motoring. There are three or four general causes of leaks in this (or any) LBC engine. (1) As you guess, the sump gasket. This is not usually the problem, in that th

Early postwar British cars are many respects. One of the biggest problems is that the alloys they had available were not very good, so wear becomes evident early on. This is not markedl

That sounds like a pretty fishy story. Two bad things: (1) Even if there were no rust, by welding in an extra section this provides a closed region that can collect water and cause rust. Really stupi

Depends on how much wear has occurred. The bearing is meant to be a press-fit into the housing, so the outer diameter should be about even with or even 1-2 thousandths larger than the "socket" in the

Check your water pump. Water pumps are fairly cheap. Leakage is not their only failure mode. The impellor can erode, and if clearance is raised even a little the efficiency drops significantly. A. B.

The way I see it (assuming your throwout bearing is good) you have two possibilities. (1) The push pin or the clevis is excessively worn. This is the pin between the clutch fork and the slave piston,

Actually the QA at SU is now pretty good, and the point and suppression technology is now way better than it was in the olden days. It is a HUGE mistake to rebuild a pump without a suppression diode.

The suppression diode is effective for _inductive_ (coil) loads only. Unfortunately, brake lights aren't inductive. The idea is that when the coil is energized by contact closure, it builds up a big
