Re: Door closer locator thread

Christian Demler on this forum stated in August this year that he was having sets made up and they should be ready by the end of the year. Why not contact him via the forum.

Re: SP gearbox removal

543A0663-7105-4917-8F5E-DF9D35797EE6.jpeg DaveM, thanks for your advice. As I said on the phone Revingtons pin was undersize as well I have used my old pin which located in the cross shaft ok but I have backed this up with a couple of roll pins as well as seen in the pic you. I also show the reason...

Re: SP gearbox removal

Colin that’s interesting you mention the tapered bolt that is used to lock the clutch release carrier to the cross shaft. Mine sheared when I removed it and to get a replacement is like finding hens teeth. Manners hasn’t got any and Barry Thorne’s ones (on the left)are slightly undersize on the tape...

Re: SP gearbox removal

I have my gearbox with overdrive out at the moment as I have rebuilt the gearbox. It makes life much easier if you do remove the down pipe so after removing the starter motor bolts the starter drops more or less straight down. I removed both driver and passenger seat and the steering wheel (I have r...

Re: SP250 residual brake pressure valve and remote servo - brakes binding?

That's great that you have found the problem, I had wondered about putting a slightly stronger spring in the restrictor valve but never got round to doing it.
It's good to hear when a problem is sollved, it's does not always happen on this forum.

Re: SP250 residual brake pressure valve and remote servo - brakes binding?

I suspected my servo and to prove it I bypassed by using a flexible brake pipe between the input pipe and the output pipe of the servo and re bled the system and it was fine. So the servo was faulty and I sent it to Past Parts who did a brilliant job on refurbishing it. I also replaced the brake mas...

I don't remember reading that you had changed the distributor capacitor which can cause this problem. If you have I apologise

Re: SP250 spare wheel retaining bolt

Thank you for your replies. I would like to find a long enough bolt to prevent the wire wheel jumping around in the boot well. I tried packing the wheel but it is only the board above it and the two flimsy turn latches that keep it down which don't have enough strength, so I will toddle along to my ...
