Richard

I have just got my set of tooling back so you would be welcome to borrow it if you want to. I'm in North Leicestershire.

Best wishes

That's a heavy bit of kit. Did it undo fairly easily with that much leverage or was it still a struggle?

Unfortunately there was not a third person to photpograph the two of us hanging on the levers! Will have a go at the remaining bearing at the other end today.

Hello Frank, any tips on fitting the liberated bearing to the car? One thought which has been brought to my attention, is the question of if the inboard locknut was of smaller outside diameter, the (attached photographed) assembly could be removed without disturbing the inboard lockring. Looking at it, the ring could be turned down and new slots milled, to match a new tool. Any ideas welcome before Monday's visit to the workshop. A tricky job to try to solve.

Richard, its Storm Frank answering ....... Grin

We've yet to refit, am chasing up body man tomorrow and over next few weeks, then hoping to get back to mechanical bits and bobs in spring, so no other advice/experience to offer/compare.

Richard, Are you coming to the Kent/Sussex New Year's Day bash this year? If you are and come back to New Barn I have two boxes full of old Lancia tools (I have no idea what they fit) and there maybe something that may be of help to you.

Hello Robin, we are booked for the lunch. A year gone by again! One item of interest is of course the sedan, what a good runner, but I just haven't the space! Tools sound interesting, looking forward to seeing you and everybody. Richard

Keep up the good work Richard. I have stripped a berlina of all its' major components but haven't actually delved inside any of them so your reports are of great interest. Hopefully 2016 may be the year to start some serious work but keeping the Y10 on the road and getting the Dedra out of the way are the first priorities.

Thanks Frank, hope your 2016 Lancia work goes well. I myself can only get these things done with the kind help of others. Not sure how much the bearing job would cost at a specialist workshop.

Out of curiosity (as I need to do a similar job on a Flavia soon) how do you get the correct torque settings when re-tightening the bearing retainer "nut" with the special tool? Or is it no more scientific than getting a fat mate to hang off the end of a suitably long piece of scaffolding?
