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.
nearly finnished the track control arms and dropped the gearbox on before i make new mounting brkt, anyone know what the ideal angle for the engine / gearbox should sit at
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.
are thanks blackpopracing i have only just made my gearbox brackets so i can cut another 10 mm of the bottom of them thought it funny that the engine ran flat i will crank it back 3 deg
i have started on the rear shock mounts i was going to run my shocks horizontal but it would of cost to much probably do it later when i have got more cash
