Well things continue to go all to shite and yesterday was no exception ,
On the way home from a car show yesterday in the Singer - well actually just trying to get out was the start I noticed the gearchange was - well notchy and rough ,
I did get home fine but the gearchange is now just terrible - in fact its almost undriveable although once any gear is eventually selected it does at least stay in said gear and the box is still really quite .
I will check all the usual suspects in regards the control rod / flexi / gearlever bush etc etc but my gut is telling me its the box which has been in the car since at least 1987 - in fact i think it was in the Stiletto I once owned .
Ive got no boxes that work , no money worth speaking of to get one that does , no knowledge as to how to fix this one and no will to take the engine out to sort it even if i did .
Verdict = its dead for now :twisted:

Dave - how many late (mk2 and mk.3) boxes do you have? I am short of good (polished teeth, no scoring) crownwheel and pinion pairs.

Let me know and we can come to an arrangement 8)

Dave,

Drain them, take the inspection covers off the bottom and look at the crownwheel teeth with a torch. If they are not scored, chipped, rusty or have gouge marks ie. they are nice and polished, I'll have them and sort you out a good deal on the rebuild of your road box.

Having fitted yet another flexi yesterday , greased everything , cleaned up the rod the flexi bolts to and checked the transaxle mounts its a bit better - its drive-able at least - i think its a combo of an iffy box and iffy flexi so by sorting one bit out i can at least select all gears and keep it going .
I will check the oil level in it next as its a bit leaky .
Hopefully a plan to get a good working transaxle has begun which il possibly fit in the winter .
Its all a step in the right direction at least :D

Taking the transaxle out you will be able to check how the thrust bearing is standing up to it all anyway. :wink:

Good news about the Singer and plans for National. :D
I haven't changed mine but the Cali has developed a strange behaviour - best described as a misfire.
When going back (from Lumenition) to known good points + condenser + coil didn't help I turned my attention to the carbs.
Noticed that the pistons/needles didn't lift equally despite throttles opened the same amount. Weird, after less than 80 miles! :shock:
Lifted both pistons simultaneously by hand and they dropped back exactly the same. Looks like cyls 1 & 2 creates more air flow than 3 & 4.
Time to check valve clearances and condition, HG and pistons + rings.
Luckily I have a set of new pistons & rings and a new HG should the worst come to the worst.
If I cannot rectify it I'll come anyway but in a modern. We'll see.

My MOJO has gone on the garden now it's nice weather, IMP works resumes when the dark nights return and it's too cold outside. So you're not the only one giving it a rest which is sometimes a good thing and you come back after the break with renewed vigor Oh and transaxle ;-)

So its been over a month since i updated the now Singer exclusive thread AKA Nods News :shock:
Missed me :lol: .
So at the last update the transaxle was borked and so was my Mojo .
However a few weeks back now i had a fiddle about with the box whilst still fitted as it seemed to me the only issue was a difficulty in selecting any gear and not any one in particular - like a flexi issue would be - except it wasnt that :? .
After much faffing , spraying of lube , anti seize goo and other slippery stuff the problem was the selector shaft where it comes out the box - the bit the flexi thing screws too - anyway its now sorted and gearchange joy has been restored :D . The new box from Dave Weedon went in the Vusky this week :D
I also found some long lost missing SU needles ive wanted to try - well ever since id lost them :lol:
They are MME needles , a tad richer than the number 7s - seems to pull a better up hills now although its not moved for a few weeks as the Vuskys been sick ( see my other thread .
Needle comparison pic -- oh and a pic of it getting seriously rained on - windows all leak free

Excellent. Well done, Dave. When I was trying to self-tune my Rover SD1 V8, I took the Su needle book and made comparison graphs of various needles to make comparison with certain sections a visual thing. Worked well and I made a few inroads into fueling a non-standard engine build :D

Rain! we need some of that stuff here in Cape Town, winter has nearly passed and the dams are just 31% full.

We had some rain once, I put the Californian outside to get it wet so that I could wash leather it clean (water restrictions in place) the front screen seal leaked in both corners but there is no sealant in place.

You have no chrome screen seal in place, do you have a black rubber one I wonder? Imp027

Finally got time to play about with the adjustable throttle response linkage I made for the Singer .
Original length was 40mm so I covered all eventualities and made this adjustable from 34mm to 45mm and have been running it at 43mm since fitting . I recon i could go shorter though ( quicker response ) so after 1mm at a time adjusting and trying ive just about reached the limit of driveability .
Too short and pulling away is horrible - too long and response is too slow.
Anyway its now at 37mm and feels good although i might go back a MM as response is a tiny bit sharp - il see how it goes and wether i get used to it . :)
At 34mm its just about undriveable :lol:
