Re: Rocker shaft spring/washer assembly

Thanks to all for your contributions. Richard : Yes 48 required only 47 correct ones present plus that too large copper one I have shown, somebody obviously lost one last time. Russ : Very kind of you, maybe Andrew can place one with the heads for me when I perhaps can pick them up if ready at the e...

Re: Rocker shaft spring/washer assembly

Thank you Nick, very helpful, I didn't think it should look like this in the picture below!
Now, where can I get a replacement washer from? I doubt my local ironmonger has one.

Rocker shaft spring/washer assembly

Hello all Anyone here have a good quality exploded view of the rocker shaft components? The drawing in my workshop manual is unclear. I have removed the heads and sent to Carpenters for overhaul, heads as expected condition-wise and pistons/liners appear re-usable, engine ran well before so was I wa...

Re: Removal of exhaust manifolds

Hello everyone, Thought I would answer my own question and finish off this post should anyone in the future search the title of post and need an answer.

2.5 V8 Saloon Lower steering column

Hello all,

I am looking for a lower steering column for my 2.5 V8 saloon. I want to replace my "Metal socket" type which is worn for the later rubber "doughnut" coupling type.

Anybody out there have one for disposal or sale?

Have tried e-bay for a long time now but no luck.

Regards

Rob C.

Removal of exhaust manifolds

Hello all, I've started on the removal of the cylinder heads, and am now down to the exhaust manifolds. My question is can both manifolds be removed with engine in situ in my LHD saloon before I start to remove the heads? My intention is to gain access to the block drain screws and drain the heads a...
