    Differential Backlash

    If they have come loose and been hitting the axle case I am sure they would experience bending and shear and ultimately break.

    P6 3500 is back firing

    Check the distributer cap is not tracking/cracked between two adjacent plug leads. Seen that a few times, usually on the inside, in the early days. Engine can then try to fire at same time on opposite banks, giving a backfire, knocking and all sorts of other effects

    Suspension Failure

    I definitely wouldn't have used star washers as they can relax in use and loosen. According to my parts list for the 2200, no washers are listed and that corresponds with modern practise .

    New Distributor, won't run for long

    Is it the right coil to go with the electronic distributer .also the V8 originally had a ballasted coil running at a lower voltage. When you say a new electronic distributer , did it replace a points one, if so is the distributer wired up correctly?

    My 3500S Restoration Project

    I agree bite size chunks is the way to go . I was once rebuilding a Morris Minor and lost motivation after taking the whole thing apart and had a garage full of bits , so much so that I couldn't get round the car to work on it. Eventually I sold it as a Kit! Take lots of pictures and bag and...

    Rear seat belts

    As fitting front belts were only compulsory in the UK from late 60's, rears in 1986, I think you are right that very few would have been ordered with rear belts from the factory . In fact initially it was not even compulsory for new cars to have belts fitted by the manufacturer, it was only...

    Revitalised Wiper Delay

    If I understand you correctly,the square end of the flexible rack has a hole in it and the crank arm has a pin which fits in the hole so that it will push and pull the rack backwards and forwards. If the square end of the rack is slotted into the motor 90 degree out, one cannot see the hole.

    Oil pressure gauge question

    I believe the one with green /red band was to pacify owners of V8's who were worried that 30psi or lower when running seemed too low compared with what they were used too on most engines ,say a 2ooo which runs at 50/60 psi. Smiths specifically stated their aftermarket 0-100 psi gauges were not...
