[xk] " As required"

My 150 did not have the ‘‘spacer’’. If someone answers the above
question and knows whether or not they are required on a 150,
include the info on the 150 when answering.

In reply to a message from R, J, G K Reilly sent Thu 22 Sep 2005:

Thanks for the responses. I’ve left off the packing pieces that
were originally present when I re-installed the engine/transmission
yesterday. This is due to the fact that the replacement rear engine
mounts are thicker than the originals by close to the thickness of
the packing pieces. The clucth pedal shaft seems to line up well,
so this is a good sign. I’ll eyeball the alignment with the prop-
shaft and rear axle input shaft when I connect it back to the

Progress is currently stalled again, as the replacement clutch
adjuster rod that I got from one of the usual suspects doesn’t fit.
The original was threaded all the way up the shaft to the eyelet at
the end, and drilled to take a split pin to retain the tensioning
spring. The replacement is about 3/4’’ longer (no big deal), has no
split pin hole (I can probably use a pair of locked nuts for this),
and (most importantly) is not threaded for the last 1 1/4’’ close to
the eyelet. So, it’s not possible to screw the brass adjuster nut
back far enough to fit. Sigh… Has any other lister had the same
problem? How did you get past it? Have any of you found someone who
sells an adjuster rod (P/N C2423) that doesn’t have this problem?

The original message included these comments:

Two things. They compensate for any out-of-squareness of the four mounts due
to manufacturing inaccuracies on the chassis frame. They also provide for
bringing the crankshaft/trans-shaft centerline into parallel with the rear
axle input shaft. They need not be colinear, line-to-line, but they must be
parallel when the car is at normal riding height.

Check it.# 3261, is that what you need? The list is from the Coventry Auto
Parts catalog. Everything I’ve purchased from them is as original.
