Re: Rebuilding XPAG 9204

Earlier in this thread Tom Lange mentioned going to Moss and get an oil pump rebuild kit. If you do please very carefully check the circlip that comes in the kit. Mine failed and caused some expensive damage to the pump and the #2 rod.

Re: Installing Main Bearings

Steve, they’re normally a thumb press tight fit in the cap...they should be fine but if not, they’re easy to remove without damaging them.

Re: Gearbox woes..

SteveT...not sure if you've done anything further on this but if you haven't, and you've decided to go the 5-speed route (I have), I highly recommend you deal directly with Peter Gamble at https://hi-gearengineering.co.uk/ rather than go through Moss. You'll save money and Peter is a delight to work...

Resources?

What happened to the listing for "Resources"? I accidently clicked on the picture above and got taken back to the old site where I found them so had my original question answered but curious if there's going to be an obvious link to "Resources, Members, etc" in the future? Be that as it may....thank...

Re: 'water on the head', no not that one, the cylinder head!

Chris...I have had water on a head bolt in the past...it was the one on the right rear. I used loctite on it and never saw water again. Since it’s all of your head bolts though I’d have to go along with the rest...either a head gasket or a torque problem. Another thought, does your head match your b...

Re: TC starting handle

The XPAW engine is basically the same engine as the XPAG so dimensionally they’re the same.

Re: Converting from lhd to rhd

Why not post this on a TD/TF website? The steering/front end of the TA/TB/TC is completely different than your TF and it’s doubtful you’ll get much help here.

Re: 1949 TC gap between the running boards and rear wings.

On the TC there is a definite gap and it will vary between cars.

According to page 215 of TC's Forever: "Running Board....The butted rear end is curved to match the rear wing front face but does not reach it, leaving a small gap"

Re: VW STEERING BOX

Tom, I have 2 TC's, one with the Datsun conversion and one with the VW conversion. I've also driven TC's with the BC box so I feel like I can speak from experience. Yes, a properly set-up BC box has a sporty feel on the road and a smaller turning radius but unless it's "properly" set-up it's a bitch...

Re: Speedo drive

Norman, Not sure you can get to it from the inside but I've never tried. Take a blunt (flat faced) punch and tap the sides of the drive flange from side to side (maybe try some 50% ATF/acetone mixture to soak around the edges first. Once you get it moving you should be able to wiggle it out. The oth...
