    Two V8's Aberdeenshire

    Its still lying outside a commercial garage in Fyvie, Aberdeenshire , i just saw it just last week. The garage owner has probably about 20 or 30 other 70’s classics that never move. They never sell any of them or would consider breaking as far as i can tell, and tbh are not very helpful...

    3500s Clutch Pedal Height - Stop

    My clutch pedal over the last couple of years has been eventually getting higher and higher relative to the brake pedal until the point yesterday when it started to strike the accelerator pedal crossshaft. The clutch works the same as it always did, it’s just there is a lot more movement until...

    Special PAS Nut Wanted

    I just had a look around and can’t find anymore 15/16” A/F bolt heads, perhaps a 24mm A/F bolt head would work but I don’t have either to sample and confirm if the bolt shaft would be suitable and have a diameter of 0.625” or more to turn it down?

    Seized clutch. Any long term damage?

    Slightly neater than the spare LT77 bell housing I had where someone had attacked it with a lump hammer. Wish I hadn’t skipped it after finding out trying to obtain a replacement was quite expensive.

    Lt77 conversion requirements

    Thanks for confirming. I was under the impression they should be in phase after reading this thread, but maybe it’s just me that’s read it incorrectly

    Seized clutch. Any long term damage?

    Some photos of the slot and the piece of box section held alongside the clutch slave arm. Perhaps someone has added in the slot in the gearbox at one time, but boy was it handy. The angle of the box section is held towards the arm as it is angled, sorry but was difficult to hold and take photo...

    Lt77 conversion requirements

    This prop shaft alignment thing was bugging me, so I eventually found the alignment mark highlighted in green after a little investigation. 1st photo shows the rear arrow aligns with the front arrow. The photo shows it slightly off but it is just the camera lens distorting things. The second...

    Seized clutch. Any long term damage?

    After having tried all the usual methods to free off my clutch which I’m sure is not too good for the drivetrain, these last few years when storing over winter I have held the clutch pedal down and placed a piece of 1” x 1” long square box section between the slave arm and the alloy gearbox...

    LT77 5 Speed Overhaul

    Well I have spent way too much money and hours rebuilding the 5 speed box, including sourcing all the parts, but I’m at a stage now where I am beginning to think it is such a shame to remove the old original 4 speed box, and in order to preserve the cars original character I have parked the idea...

    1968 2000 TC Restoration Project

    At least the engine will be sucking in cooler denser air boosting power compared to the pancake filters which just suck in hot air and make more noise.

    The previous photo supplied by mrtask shows a slightly different mount compared to the one I have, and I think that is the one that was used by cobraboy, that clears it up for me. Seems that is a stronger mount with the extra web. Here’s mine in the same position.
