Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Hi Jim,
I'd imagine the imperial sizes are correct, as I believe Hardy Spicer had the patent on these back in the day.
This time I'm going to put the UJs in the deep freeze for an hour or two before trying to press them in. Also, freezing the grease might help keep the needle rollers in place!! :)

My Purple Project - SE5a 1973

Would there be any benefit in "breaking" the dash into two parts, the horizontal bit and the vertical bit, with separate moulds? Just thinking someone might want to replace only part of the dash?

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Turns out there are three standard sizes: 75 mm, 82 mm and 95 mm.
The Landie supplier "Paddock Spares" has the 82 mm size available at £5.82, in case QRG don't stock them.

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

No Jim,
Can't remember where from - probably fleabay or somesuch. Looked in my parts file but can't see the receipt etc.
I've just contacted QRG to see if they have them.

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Well, as they say round here: There's never nowt but wot there's summat! Spent all day yesterday trying to get the UJ "aligned" properly, so this morning I took it all out again and put it next to the original. This is the picture... P1030107.JPG Didn't know they came in two versions - the right one...

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Oh, and Phil, I agree - as the yokes are both fixed on the prop shaft (in line) and non-removable, it is not a problem, but thanks for commenting - all feedback gratefully received...

Problem with rocker arm

Don't know anything about those engines and their studs, but an old-fashioned solution might work - use a thin nut under the top nut as a locking nut - tighten down the nuts and then with a slim spanner turn the locknut back (unscrew) whilst holding the top nut. Traditional way to fix fishplates on ...

interest in one of my cars
I bought a small-scale model E-Type at the Silverstone Classic last year, and the stallholder told me he'd only sell it to me if I took a busted one as well, no extra charge. An idea you might try on Speedy? :)

Torque setting?

If you heat a plain copper washer to glowing red-hot and then drop it into cold water it will soften it so you can re-use it.

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Thanks for the feedback Chris. I have the opposite problem - the needle roller bearings are an interference fit in the yokes. I'd preferred something a little easier to assemble and don't mind a bit of loctite! I've renewed the duff end - at the gearbox - now to rebuild the drive train and take it f...

Mark,
I wonder if Speedy over in Newhey has or knows of space round the back of the mill? Just a thought.
Good luck, and pm me a figure and I'll pay you straight away.

Hydrostatically speaking (!!!) if the top of the fluid level in the reservoir is above the level of the feed into the mc then is should work (IMO, but no guarantee!!)
