Please will one of you kind souls either tell me where to get the rotoflex hub end float setting spacers (not the 0.003” shims) from or, tell me the inside and outside diameters, and I’ll get some made. Part #’s 152483 to 7 in the attached image. Thank you.
Well, my Vitesse passed its MOT with a couple of advisories: Binding front calipers and rear wheel bearing play getting excessive. I made a start investigating the rear wheel bearings. I had gone to some trouble fitting and shimming new bearings at the same time as converting from Rotoflex donuts to CV driveshafts, so was surprised that they were a problem. Anyhow, I pulled the nearside hub only to reveal the shattered remains of the spacer ring and some mangled shims, hopefully you can make these out in the attached photo. It looks like I must have got something fairly catastrophically wrong during assembly. The next step is to remove the driveshaft to find the rest of the spacer ring and probably replace the bearings. The driveshaft conversion were fitted when at the rolling chassis stage and now I am a bit baffled as to how to remove them with the body in place. I have it unbolted from the diff but can see no way to manoeuvre it past the diff to withdraw it from the vertical link. Can anyone out there who has done this conversion point me in the right direction for taking a shaft out? I am hoping it is not necessary to disassemble the vertical link from the car in order to proceed but it is looking increasingly likely If anyone has any suggestions as to what is likely to have gone wrong and caused the damage, I would love to hear them too. Cheers, Keith
Hi Finally coming to the end of my Herald 1200 rebuild but I need a couple of over-rider to grill spacer tubes (Stanpart 608098). The usual suspects don't seems to be listing these so can someone either point me in the right direction or provide a spec (length, insides and outside diameters) so that I can turn a pair? Many thanks Jim
Hi all. I am in the process of restoring a Triumph Herald 13/60 and have come to a halt at the fuel pump... The original fuel pump wouldn't pump.. Instead of replacing the valves and diaphragm, we purchased a new fuel pump that is supposed to fit a herald 13/60... However, the arm on the new pump is too long, I've heard that a spacer would solve this issue, and I am inclined to believe that... The issue I'm now having, is that the studs which secure the fuel pump to the block, are too short. My question I, whether a spacer would solve this, or if the arm is actually the wrong shape, therefore a spacer wouldn't help ? Thanks. Will.
