Re: Driven Nuts !

This website below explains all. The only commonality with BSF and Whitworth threads is the thread angle, being 55 degrees. Naturally the thread pitches are different. The story of the evolution of these thread forms is interesting. The genesis of the Whitworth thread goes right back to the early da...

Re: Conquest gearbox

Although I’m not familiar with the Conquest I’m sure the carpets can be lifted up exposing the floor panel which should be held down by a series of screws.

Re: Conquest gearbox

Bryan, item 17 is the cover they’re talking about. Once that’s off all will be revealed. To eliminate the harsh action the pullrod adjuster needs to be turned clockwise about 1/4 turn. No need to drain the oil.

Re: DB18 Fuel Pump

That’s odd, because the lever should be fitted with a return spring to prevent this. Maybe the spring is missing or the lever’s action is tight.

Re: DB18 Fuel pump

Although the type T valves and the type U valves aren’t interchangeable, the diaphragm, diaphragm spring and the top cover’s seals are so if David Beales can supply overhaul kits for either of them then you’re laughing. If he can’t supply the type T valves then there’s no reason why you can’t clean ...

Re: DB18 Fuel Pump

Well, if you want to maintain ‘Daimler purity’ you should fit the type T, although service parts could be difficult to procure. The valves of the T type pump are made up of individual parts, namely two valve discs (made of micata), two return springs, a brass retainer, a gasket and three countersink...

Re: One week of ownership

The only shims fitted to these steering boxes are between the lower bearing retaining plate/gearbox housing, and (internally) between the rocker arm and the housing. Although a gasket is fitted between the top cover and the housing there Is no shimming, the rocker arm end float being set by the roc...

Re: 15 - Differential strip.

The extractor is made up of 2 parts, an inner and an outer detail. The outer detail is threaded externally to thread into the sleeve as shown in the close-up illustration - it doesn’t screw into the aluminium casing! - while the inner detail butts up against the bearing. When the operator turns the ...
