    Cam Timing

    Hi Team, I have purchased a new cam kit from Wins International and have a couple of questions because the car still can like a pig after installing it. I have ended up pulling it all apart again (including the pistons which 3 off have broken top compression rings). Another order from the UK...

    Engine wont rev above 3000rpm

    Thanks guys. I have given the car to an old school mechanic as I was going round in circles. Seems like it could be the distributor that is messing up the timing and hence the vacuum.. Hopefully a relatively easy fix. Mike - the carb piston was a second hand replacement from an SU specialist...

    Engine wont rev above 3000rpm

    Very light sand around the piston circumference to stop it binding. It was very minor. I have tested today that the pistons rise and fall freely.

    Engine wont rev above 3000rpm

    Interesting. I did have to replace one of the pistons as the needle screw was knackered. I had to carefully sand the perimeter down as it was binding in the housing initially. Will have another look at that.

    Engine wont rev above 3000rpm

    Standard SU HS6. I don't believe there is any restriction.

    Engine wont rev above 3000rpm

    Yes. I did use the little dot as you have shown rather than the long line. That seemed to match how I removed the entire assembly relative to the keyways in the aprockets.

    Engine wont rev above 3000rpm

    Yes new lifters and ran at 2209 rpm for first 20 mins. I have quadruple checked the plug leads. Surely if I have the timing chain set wrong it wouldn't run properly at any rom?

    Engine wont rev above 3000rpm

    Hi Team . So I spent Xmas holidays replacing rhe camshaft in my 3500. Kit was from Wins.I am certain I lined up the marks correctly when putting the new timing sprockets and chain on. The engine now won't rev above 3000rpm at which point there us engine shake and backfiring from rhe exhaust. The...

    Front Crankshaft oil seal conversion

    Hi Guys, Happy New Year. I am in the process of replacing the cam and might as well replace the crank oil seal while to timing cover is off. I have a bottom end gasket set from Wins that has the later seal in it, but mine is the rope type. Does anyone have the instructions to convert from...

    Suspension Crossmember

    Thanks guys. Have decided to get this done by the pros. Being done today.

    Suspension Crossmember

    Thank guys. What you are saying makes sense but I think I will have a go at my plan first. The crossmember only needs to come down 100mm to allow access to the bushes. If I can press them out and back in in-situ with a big G-clamp it would be a relatively simple job. Big if though eh? The...

    Suspension Crossmember

    Hi Team, I have just ordered a set of crossmember bushes as mine are completely stuffed. Any tips on how to replace these? Is it just a simple case of supporting the diff extension, unbolting that centre bolt, and then the bush bolts, and lowering the crossmember slightly to allow access to...

    1975 P6b Transmission issue?

    Bit more investigating today and I think I have worked out the kickdown cable. It would appear that the BW65 cables don't have a crimped ferrule that is always referred to. At least, I have two cables and neither of them have ferrules. I have ended up holding the throttle pedal wide open, and...

    1975 P6b Transmission issue?

    So another question for the all knowing Harvey I think. I have got the transmission back in the car, refilled with fluid, and I took it for a run around the block. At least I have drive now which is an improvement. It seems to shift through the gears but the car stalls when you come to a...

    1975 P6b Transmission issue?

    Probably, but I would be using an unknown gearbox, and would have to put the car through a compliance process. At least I know I have a transmission that should last another 50 years.

    Thanks Harvey. I thought as much.

    1975 P6b Transmission issue?

    Hi Guys, So I finally have the transmission back from the reconditioners (NZD $3300 later), and listed it back into the car this morning. One head scratcher though...this bracket that the selector cable locks into, was not refitted to the box, and I can't figure out which way round it goes. The...

    Two is better than one?

    So thought I'd post an update on my "projects". The 2200TC is finished and will hopefully find a new owner in the springtime here. SC head was removed and replaced with the original TC and carbs, all mechanicals gone through. I rebuilt the interior using my trusty industrial sewing machine...

    1975 P6b Transmission issue?

    Thanks Harvey. So presumably as BW65 torque converter from an early SD1 V8 is also compatible? One of the car clubs here has a reconditioned one that could be an option.

    1975 P6b Transmission issue?

    Hi Team, The transmission reconditioner has come across a problem with the BW65 torque converter. The drive hub splines are very worn so he has asked if I can source a replacement. I know the local club has some BW35 ones in the parts store...are these the same as the 65? 65s are like hens...

    1975 P6b Transmission issue?

    Thanks guys. Also did some research and found 013 for P6 and 6061 for SD1. Obviously these boxes were used in a lot of other cars too. Am going to pull the box and take it to a local old school trans specialist to get the original one reconditioned. I don't see the point in gambling on a second...
