    ye see what you mean but if there is a fixed bush one end (rubber) would'nt you need to make the rod longer or shorter for adjusting the bar , i could turn the rose joint around 180 deg but that would only give me half a thread pitch adjustment woud'nt it ??

    i use unf rose joints so half a turn is probable half a mm.

    done a set yesterday and had no probs when i put them in.

    not sure how much adjustment you would need.

    once fitted they never need to be adjusted again,i only use a rose joint for any slight missalignment

    At least you can adjust them in situ rather than having to unbolt the rose joint.

    usually its 3* down at ride height, measured from the gearbox flange. But what is most important is the diff and the gearbox are parallel, so if you do set it at 3* down, the diff needs to be 3* up (at ride height remember!!). Google 'pinion angle' if you want a better explanation from someone a little smarter

    Love the build by the way, anything morris minor on here catches my eye

    cheers strop checked it last night! as i am running the jag rear that is set up at 90 deg to the floor so i only needed to jack the gearbox up about 10 mm to make them parallel so my bearing should run a nice Elliptical pattern (got that on the interweb)

    if running a jag rear end different rules apply.
    I 'think' you keep the engine at 3 degrees leaning back, the oiling and inlet are set up for this. Also it aids the motor running under you in a big accident.
