FRONT HUB FELT SEALS

Dennis you are splitting hairs worrying about a 70lb axial loading (pre or otherwise) on those bearings. That assuming the felt didn't crush over time in any event. The side load capability on corners will be measured in tons ! Hooligan, my gentle elderly cornering does not do that :) The real poin...

It’s felt.

Surely 30 seconds with a scalpel will fix it?
Both thickness and I/Diameter......have you actually tried it?.

FRONT HUB FELT SEALS

The bearing has to be first set without the seal fitted, the hub nut and axle marked and then reset to the marks after installing the seal. But I agree that an undersize seal is likely to get nipped somewhere along the line. Alex. Just out of interest how much torque did you have to apply to the hu...

FRONT HUB FELT SEALS

Yes I could see how one could set 3 thou bearing end float that way BUT consider this: GW felt 12mm; correct felt 8mm. I just happen to have a 19.5 kilo weight lying around and put that on a plate of hardboard on the GW seal and it compressed it about 2.3mm and there was still a gap of around 1.7mm ...

GTC oil pressure

In my Cologne engined GTC I am using 0W/40 Mobil 1 fully synthetic and get near enough 50psi at anything over about 1,500 rpm and dropping down to about 20 psi at 500 rpm tick-over (stupid place to put oil pressure gauge where such big parallax for reading true needle position when driving!) Did I e...

FRONT HUB FELT SEALS

UNHAPY WITH GW. The spares man got me to phone back next day to talk to a "man that knows" (dave?). I explained to that man that they had returned to me the wrong felt seals and that as my letter showing them photos of the 2 types to them showed, the correct ones were thinner and had a larger I/D so...

Castrol GTX

Would there be any interest in my webshop stocking it and maybe in time for sale at Curborough? AJL Do you mean you are prepared to stock and sell on at cost for the good of members or would you be adding a percentage as a trader? That would then be up to individuals what they are prepared to pay??...

Castrol GTX

Hi Dennis I’ve tried tonight to locate the website and find options for purchase. However, I appear to be going around in circles. Checked out eBay and end up with probiotic tablets. Are you saying I order it and have it delivered to me or alternatively you order it and send it on. Also I’m surpris...

Phil and Ron. For the first oil change use 10% (ten percent) by volume; thereafter 5% (five percent) by volume for further oil changes. - applies to engine, gearbox, axle and power steering fluid. So it depends on how often you change your oil (fully synthesised = longer periods between changes) as ...

Just for the record: I contacted MIRA and sadly their archive only goes back 20 years, so can't provide definitive answers to any of our queries. Dennis - are you now stocking the additive and making it available to members? Ref stocking it - NO. I just order when there are enough people wanting it...

Coupe/GTE Front shock fitted length

That is for an SE6 fully loaded simulation? How often does one drive with those conditions. I set my spring seats with one passenger at lower wishbones parallel to ground so eye to eye slightly smaller than the 13.64 inch of the setting bar above. (i.e. only part loaded)
