    Bearings (RTC3416/RTC3426) no longer from Timken?

    All bearings have numbers stampt on de inner and outer race, and all bearing manufacturers use the same numbers. The RTC numbers are just Land Rover part numbers. The bearing numbers for the RTC3416 and RTC3426 are. RTC3416: Outer race 354X. bearing(inner race) 359S. RTC3426: Outer race 11300. bearing(inner race) 11162. Any good bearing supplier will be able to get you good quality bearing using those numbers. Eric
  4. Hi Allen, I took some measurments and my front axle is just over 20mm wider (so just shy of 1") than the rear measured between the brake backplates. It is a bit difficult to get an exact measurement this way, so your 1" might be right. What i found in the serie 3 workshop manual is that a S3 109 has a 1" wider track than a S3 88, but that is because of the wider brake shoes/drums i guess. I can't find any track numbers in the serie 2a workshop manual. As far as i know i still have the original axles front and rear and i definitely have 10" brakes all round. So i think it is just supposed to be this way. Cheers, Eric
  5. I know that on my serie 2a 88 the front axle is a little bit wider than the rear wheel to wheel. I can't remember the exact difference of the top of my head but will measure tomorrow if you wish. Eric.

    What Clutch and Pressure plate to use

    With a 2a gearbox and clutch withdrawal mechanism you can use the late 2a 9.5 inch cluth cover (part number 571228) and the 9.5 inch late 2a/3 clutch plate (FRC2297). Eric.

    Bearmach led lights

    I have the full Wipac LED light set on my serie 2a. I like them, but the one thing that bugs me is that there is no light emitted to the side but only straight ahead. A filament bulb emits light in all directions. LED does not so side visibility is reduced. Eric

    Series 2a gearbox problem

    It looks like the cage of the front mainshaft bearing has melted. This can happen if the oil level is very low. Edit: In your first post you said that you were recovering a mate. Did you slip the clutch a lot? That would put a lot of heat in the primary pinion which could melt the bearing cage. Eric

    2.25 petrol interest

    You could try to sell it to somebody in Holland. Petrol engines are popular here since the goverment raised the tax exempt age to 40 years. On diesel cars between 25 and 40 years old we pay full tax which can go up to 2000 euro/year for a 110. Oldtimer petrol cars in that age group are only 120 euro/year but can't then be driven in januari,februari and december. Before they changed the rules everybody with an over 25 year old petrol car got rid of their petrol engines and put in 200tdi's. Now they all want to change back again. Eric

    Bearmach swivel balls any good?

    I have Bearmach swivels on my serie 2a. The LH one has been on for 1.5 years now and is still mint. The RH one has been on for about a year longer and is scarred and rusted in places. Eric.

    The saga of my valve stem seals

    Is the smoke really blue or is it greyish? If grey it is definitely unburnt diesel. I have a very good 2,25 petrol from Turner in my serie 2a that hase a tendency to blow the valve seals of the exhaust valve guides. This doesn't really effect oil consumption because that is minimal and it doen't smoke at all. It only gives a blue puff of smoke after it has been idling for a long time and then only at the first blip of the throttle. The only time I get permanent blue smoke is when off-roading and the right hand side of the truck is a lot higher than the left i.e on a sideslope. My explanation. All the oil under the valve cover then runs down to the left side of the cilinderhead and some of it gets into the combustion chambers via the exhaust valve guides. So if you want to test if your smoke is caused by the valve seals you could put the driverside up a bank and see if it starts to smoke. Eric.
