    Hi all, been a while since posting.

    Life...... Well life.

    Getting ready to put the engine back in the bus, so thought I would have the flywheel ground, adjust the end float, replace the needle bearing, oring and felt seal.

    Looking at the Bentley it makes mention of a spacer, but I am unable to find it nor find it on ETKA to find a part number.

    Maybe this is it pressed into the flywheel?

    Cheers,
    Nils

    I'm pretty sure that's it.

    How'd the transmission turn out?

    I ran out of time and had to farm out the build.
    I do have a second box of bits to screw together for the learning experience.

    Right now the important thing is to get this thing back on the road for Xmas in Tassie

    There are 6 different thickness spacer washers. Have a look at ETKA Illustration 6-05.

    They are the same spacers as used on type 4 engines so they should be available locally.

    You're thinking of the shims that set the end play (the 3 at the top of the first picture) I recon Phil

    Yes that's what I thought.

    Maybe better to get someone to have a look at it that has had experience. The Bentley looks nothing like ETKA.

    The adjusting shims are on the top left the spacer (arrowed) in the flywheel retains the felt seal for the input shaft. Without the right equipment and knowledge it is easy to get the end float wrong and cause a lot of damage.

    Don't worry Les I have it covered.
    If it holds the felt seal in, then it is what is pictured. Just didn't realised it was pressed into the flywheel; does explain why I have need seen one come out though.

    OK nils, they are often battered due mainly to the mainshaft hitting them when the engine is being installed.
