Hi,

Thanks for the answer,

Was thinking along the same lines myself, just the low compression ratio, unless destined for a foreign market and never made the journey.

Hi,

Could be a Range Rover lump with that compression ratio and acquired a SD1 front cover along the way. I did ask ' Google ' and Marcos was mentioned in relation to this number, but really cant see them using a 8.13:1 CR can you ??

Hi Markus, The worse bit is the fact you cant get the collaspesible spacer for the pinion pre load adjustment and the huge spanner you need to undon on the pinion. I made up a 'special tool' to hold the pinion still whilst undoing this nut http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s300/john215_bucket/Danii...

Hi,

Brought a dome nut for the top of mine and it was if remember correctly 1/4 UNC, i assume the stud is the same both ends, and UNC is often used on alloy.

Cheers John
