Re: Rover V8 Water Pump Pulley Size

Why would you want to increase the water flow? If you do, then would the water not flow faster through the radiator and therefore not cool as much? The rate of flow will also vary as to the engine speed.

Re: IVA Pass and Registration

A bit low front and rear in my opinion, but it's up to you. Originals ran higher than most of our do. Remember the suspension will settle after the first few hundred miles.

Lovely looking car.

Bit far from Essex! I would have lent you my spare if you’d been able to collect. Sorry.

Re: MGB Stub Axles.. new v's old

Not the easiest of bearings to set up, but there are plenty of videos showing how to adjust the end float using shims. One thing you want to avoid is the modern way of torquing up the nut and easing off a flat on the nut.

According to the Haynes Manual, the wheel bearing end float should be 0.002 to 0.004 ins, (0.05 - 0.1mm)
