Re: Wipers not clearing

Hi You say you fitted new wiper blades. I can tell you now that not all new blades are equal as I found to my cost when I had similar poor wiper performance. I ended up fitting Lucas LWCB11 blades and they clean the screen as good as my modern car. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LUCAS-WINDSCREEN-WIPER-B...

Re: Propshaft Spigot Dimension

Hi

I am machining the bush myself in the lathe, it is for a spare gearbox I am rebuilding to keep for if I ever need another one fitting to my car.
So I think I will have to measure my prop shaft just to be sure I get it right.

Thanks

Re: Propshaft Spigot Dimension

I think I might have to bite the bullet and remove my propshaft again, and remember to measure it this time round.

Thanks

Re: Propshaft Spigot Dimension

Hi Poolguy

Thanks for the reply, are you absolutely certain yours is 1.175" and not 1.1875" ?

John Evans Gearbox Co, has told me to ream the bush out to 1.1895 so it has 0.002" clearance on the 1.1875" propshaft yoke.

Propshaft Spigot Dimension

Does anyone happen to know the exact outside diameter of the propshaft where it enters into the tailshaft bush and seal etc. I have been informed by someone that it is 1.1875" but one of the spares suppliers tells me it is 1.2", I need to know an accurate measurement so I can machine the bush to siz...

Re: Traveller wood, To fill or not to fill that is the quest

Hi
I have used “Captain Tolley’s Creeping Crack Cure” on mine.
It wicks its way along any small gaps and then sets to prevent ingress of water, it looks like milk when you inject it with a hypodermic syringe, but dries colourless.

Re: Traveller window channel

I did the same mod as Panky by adding some extra seals on the outside of the rear windows. After a bit of searching I found the profile that fits perfectly, so to save you trying to find it again I got it from here. https://www.woolies-trim.co.uk/product/1734/window-weatherstrip" onclick="window.ope...

Re: Accuspark issue

I also had to alter the initial timing when I fitted an Accuspark distributor on my Traveller, but once timed with a strobe it has made the car run so much better than with the previous setup. As a precaution I have purchased another module and installed it into the original distributor, and having ...

Re: Combined Telescopic & Normal Dampers

My Traveller has been fitted with telescopics, but the original dampers are still functioning as well, I wondered about fitting an anti roll bar but it does not seem to roll much, maybe the double damping helps a bit.

Ford Brake Disc Part N° ??

Hi all I am looking at replacing the discs on my Traveller with some new ones, I know they are Ford ones because the name is cast into the caliper. I have seen reference to them being original fitment on a MK3 Escort and having a Mintex part number MDC392. I can buy a pair of new Ford discs for abou...
