  1. Bit suprised on the spec. Would have expected at the bottom Complete with Hawkeye And the price ......... "F"
  2. medication is a wonderfull thing penguin
  3. I have given up on BOC and am going over to rental. I have just bought an outright 30 litres at 300 bar which is 1/3 more than BOC bottle £90 outright aqnd $80 for contents from SPA welding in lancing, they do hobbyweeld too and albee all renatl free. They have BOC bottles being handed in literally daily now ! N
  4. The CWP teeth gives ratios, So 46 on CW and 13 on pinion = 3.538 (3.54) same on Ashcroft HD 28 / 8 = 3.5 these have to be the same each end (ok to use ashcroft 3.5 and std 3.54, I mean you cant have 4.1 one end and 3.54 on the other - and yes I have known itr The gears in the centre - sun or pkanet are a SET, differing SETS have differing numbers (and styles) of gears, but the SETS allows the differewntial movement nothing more, so any centre is fine providing the SET is all matched Hope this helps and makes sense ? Nige
  5. No. Changing seal and end flange shouldn't read shouldnt alter preload, if it wrong its bearings and thats the 1st to go in on a build so has to be stripped and all redone , but some pattern parts can be a dire fit, and not unknown to cause issues.
  6. Yup, that will keep the **** out !
  7. Well, one bit sorted. The 2 x Ashlockers 3 x Winch air spools where a real mess of long wires joins, t pieces and air leaks ... and jammed soleniods due to dirt in exhaust ports etc etc a real done in a hurry and then added to in an even bigger hurry sort of mess OCD sorted
  8. AH If only life was that easy ! On centres there are different gear types forged and cut, and also differing center casings and even differing pin sizes all on the standard 2 pins. To be honest messing about with a 2 pin will prob give you grey hairs and may work 1st time or not. Mixing gears is also a bad idea from mixing wear patterns, the 2 pin centre is already weak enough ! If you now have a 24 spline centre best route would be to upgarde to 24 shafts which even standard are stronger, here is a video, although its on front shafts the 10 / 24 argument is 100% valid ! Hope this helps, ask if you want any more info : Nige
  9. Sorry, "BIG C" has been in family, treatment un derway but I have been a bit absent and remiss on this - Sorry Mo I know I have sorted ... Could I ask anyone who has ordered (got yours doug - but remind me of which you would like ?? ) to just re pm me with which you would like and I'll sort tomm Sorry all, apologies Nige

  12. Hi ALL As a Admin / and Owner of www.megasquirt-v8.co.uk with the possible conflict I am staying off this threadwith my personal thoughts and letting members voice their own thoughts experinces and views. I am happy to answer where and whatever you ask if others don't, and happy to chat on phone. But You will love whatever version you go for , its a bit addictive. If you end up going with parts I cant do I know where to point you to to get them, the megasquirt community is slightly incestous lol Nige
