Re: New club Facebook page

I am not a Facebook fan in general, but i do use it. I have had very rapid responses to technical questions and pleas for parts. The attractive features are that it is so easy to upload images and videos and it has the potential to reach a much wider audience. It is fairly useless as a repository fo...

Re: Snapped timing chain

Where would one get a good quality replacement timing chain - cannot see one in single spares and Drags one has a joining link which is presumably not ideal ?

Re: Clutch woes

Hi John, I will see what can be done locally, since any fix is beyond my skills. There is a nearby outfit that repairs and restores vintage Bentleys & Rolls from all over the world, so they may be worth a try. Cheers, Bevan

Re: Clutch woes

Hi Nev & John, Thanks for your comments and suggestions. Regarding the damaged gear and its companion, the 1929 parts book lists the shaft and gears under one part number, suggesting they are integral as you say, but they sure look as if they have been pressed on. A FBook user claims he had a ne...

Re: Clutch woes

Hi Paul, Yes, any solution ain't going to be cheap. The case seems fine and the right hand gear in the photo is the ks engagement ratchet, so I'm not worried too much about the wear there.

Not sure if this was the cause of the jamming or a consequence as yet. Bit disappointing, to say the least. Any suggestions welc...

Johnny & Eero,

Re: Clutch woes

Hi folks, Bit of an update for anyone interested. In my ignorance, I had assumed that what I was looking at (in the original photo I posted) was the end of the gearbox mainshaft so that I could not dissemble anything without unscrewing the troublesome bearing retainer- it has just been pointed out t...
