Coupling Gear Cover

Chaps, The famous lipped bearing in the coupling gear cover (1951 Mk1 SQ4). Mine is barely worn but has an enormous pit in the outer race, and is extremely tight when fitted (ie it won't turn).

Reading Mr. Waller's book for the umpteenth time, I notice he draws attention to the fact that the camshaft nut is LH, but makes no mention of the direction of the thread of the crankshaft pinion nut, implying it is RH.

I am indeed talking about the timing side Nev.

I believe that the thread on the crankshaft pinion is LH - so the motion of the shaft tightens the thread, as it does on the camshaft pinion.

No danger of my oil getting hot anytime soon. My engine is in bits and it is too cold & dark to go and fix it.

Thats why I started work on the oil tank, I can bring that inside!

Can I ask one more question Brenton? I'm in the process of taking dents out of my oil tank.

The bracket at the front, that goes up to the frame lug with the two stepped nuts. Is that bracket flat, or are there bends or twists on it?
