Wedge List / Gas pump
« Last post by Bruce Riley on July 16, 2018, 02:26:18 PM »
Hey guys,

Need some quick help.  I am trying to take off the gas pump in my TR7

Spider and have run into some difficulty.  I got the right bolt off but the

left bolt seems to be covered with a metal bar that comes from just above

the pump.  The metal bar is welded to a couple of pipes that, I assume are

heater pipes.  So the bar extends down and is totally in front of the left

bolt and does not move to allow me to get at the bolt.  Any suggestions as

to what to do?

thanks and in the middle of......

I called Jeff and he does not have a supply, but had one and is sending it

to me.  Nice guy. Good chat.  He says that FAST is again supplying them and

that the last one he bought had it included.  He also said that it was the

transition from Crane to FAST where they ran out and Crane didn't reorder,

cause they were selling the company.



So, I called FAST to ask about it, as I sit here I have been on hold for 45

minutes.  I am going to give up and try again later, but it is possible they

are again included in the xr700-0300 kit.

And I can do some test prints using comparatively low temperature plastic.  I

can do ABS too but it is a low-ish temperature ABS "alloy".  I would not trust

it inside the engine compartment.  And when I print with the ABS, it is a

bitch to clear the print head to go back to the usual material.

Wedge List / original strut top bits, front suspension
« Last post by tencate on July 16, 2018, 08:46:11 AM »
I presume many if not most of you have converted your strut tops to needle

bearings.



Like me I presume you never throw anything away.



I'm writing an article on the upper strut mounts and hardware and would like

to either get hold of or take photos and measurements of all the original

"stuff". Can anyone help? We're happy to pay shipping costs and a reasonable

cost if you simply wanna sell them. Donations accepted too :-)



Thanks,

FWIW, Jeff at Advanced Distributors has the world's supply of Crane Cam 8

cylinder wheels. TWOA thought about 3D printing them but since there's still a

good supply of them from Jeff, well, the motivation to get the 3D printing

project going rather fizzled.

I will see if I can find a micrometer to get the shaft width, none of the

rest of the dimensions should be supercritical.
