Gearbox engine spacers
« on: 19 Nov 2021 at 11:59 »
Hi, I think that I must have the adjustable type spacers fitted on my 1951 MkV. Not the same as to what's mentioned should  be in Spannerama on page 31, but the type fitted to Plus and Dragonfly models. Mine are a thin headed hollow bolt, two different  lengths for left and right sides with the wider adjusting nut on the other side. When I checked them both were a loose fit and could be turned by hand. Do these need to be tight and anything placed against the contacting points of the gearbox or/and engine? Is there a specific way or do I just align the final drive sprocket with the rear wheel by eye? Thanks for any advice. Paul Jensen
