I've been looking at fixing my door mirrors. Once I know how to get them apart I'll be able to see what is broken, but I don't want to force anything yet in case something irreplaceable breaks!

If the same pins are broken on mine I might try replacing them with roll pins, or maybe your brother could fix mine as well??

Hello

Yesterday I spend a couple of hours in the garage, after a few weeks of no work on the Bagheera.

I got the spark plugs changed, a new additional air bleed nipple on the coolant system installed, and I eventually got in the mood to have a look at the gearbox.

I tried to gently grind/polish the inside surface of one of the new locking-gears (I have found out that others call them "sliders" or "sliding sleeves"), it did make a noticeable difference, but I donīt feel good about this solution.

I have decided to use my new synchromesh rings, and my old sliders, even though I have read, that the sliders should be changes when the synchromesh rings are being changed. I have decided to go with this solution because it feels much easier to push/slide the old slider onto the a new synchromeshring, that a new slider onto the new synchromesh ring.

Best regards Frederik

I tried, and now understand your advices better. What I imaged first was such that the shaft (push rod) and master cylinder were different bodies and making an external mechanical contact at the piston end which I hoped to grease up. I had seen something similar on YouTube. But that wasn't true, the push rod was a part of the master cylinder and when I unbolted the master cylinder I saw everything was still connected all the way to the clutch pedal. Bummer.

I haven't fixed anything, but learned something :-)

As the steering hub nut arrived today I thought i would fit it !
Has anyone else purchased the boss kit from carjoy?
Either I am doing something wrong or it doesnt fit!!!!
The splines are correct but the shaft is not long enough to get the nut on as the base of the boss interferes with the plastic surround.

4. if you find yours please advise, i could order it from the UK. eBay is full of sellers.


My can of adhesive (which I eventually found but is virtually empty) was called Force, and it had a website link of www.forceproducts.co.uk  However, when I tried to take a look, their website was down as it was being rebuilt!

I have just been notified of two new hardback books that have been published in June and July.  The book in June was Talbot 1978-1987 about those ten years which include the Murena; and the book just released this month is Bleu Matra.  My website has a few details plus photos of the book covers on the News page. (link on the first index page)

Now the microfiche correctly states 6 of the plain bolts and 2 of the guide bolts for one axle.  So I'm puzzled where you got a list that only states 2 plain bolts per brake disc.
It actually shows one plain bolt and one with the locating pin.

Yes but that is just to save over-complicating the drawing.  If you check the parts listing on the right it shows the quantities, and it has 6 (plain) and 2 (guide) bolts.  In fact if you look carefully at the drawing there is a small 6 in front of the part number of the plain bolt washer and a small 2 in front of the guide bolt washer part number (which is actually the same part number 0081580911 - so 8 washers for 8 bolts.)  I'm not sure why they missed the numbers from in front of the bolt numbers in the drawing.  There are many instances of this pre number in drawings to indicate the quantity.  There are also may frames where the bolts, washer, rivets etc. in the drawings are not included in the lists on the right side of the page.  This is another modification included in my corrected computer manual - all parts in a frame drawing are listed on the right hand side.

Roy, I thought your email problem was linked to your other hosting problems.  The parts list is one I acquired with the car and appears to have been compiled by Matramagic from an official source, but there are pages missing and in the wrong order.  I have since consulted the workshop manual and there are indeed four bolts.  I should have done that in the first place but it is in the garage and I keep the parts list in the house!
