Clutch Box Joint

  1. The Grub Screw in the Clutch Box Joint

    The Grub Screw in the Clutch Box Joint

    Remove floorboards by driver’s seat.

  2. Depress clutch pedal half way (so as not to engage clutch brake) and rotate clutch assembly until the grub screw in the centre of the assembly is in an accessible position.
  3. Remove the grub screw.
  4. Use the brass grease gun to inject grease into the box joint
  5. Replace grub screw

Front Box Joint

  1. The Font Box Joint

    The Font Box Joint

    Remove floorboards by driver’s seat.

  2. Depress clutch pedal half way (so as not to engage clutch brake) and rotate clutch assembly until the grease cup is pointing in an accessible direction.
  3. Remove the grease cup.
  4. Either fill the greaser cup and wind it in (repeat 10 times) or using the steel grease gun, connect up the green hose and wind the handle about four rotations.
  5. Replace the grease cup.

Middle Box Joint

  1. The Middle Box Joint

    The Middle Box Joint

    Remove floor boards by the driver’s seat.

  2. Depress clutch pedal and rotate the assembly until the grub screw is accessible.
  3. Remove grub screw
  4. Grease using brass grease gun.
  5. Replace grub screw.

Universal Joint

The Universal Joint

The Universal Joint

This is lubricated by means of a grease cup, which fills a cavity in the centre of the spider. Unwind, fill with grease and screw back in (repeat 3 times).

Rear Box Joint

The Rear Box Joint

The Rear Box Joint

Unwind, fill with grease and screw back in the rear box joint greaser (repeat 4 times). Be careful not to cross thread the greaser.

Steering greasers

Each of the linkages on the steering is fitted with a standard grease cup, which should be used to lubricate them:

  • Top of steering column
  • 1 on each end of the connecting rod
  • 1 on each end of the tracking rod
  • 1 on each Kingpin

Front Suspension

This is lubricated by standard grease cups on the front and back pivots of the leaf springs (x6).

Rear Suspension

This is lubricated by standard grease cups on the front pivot of the leaf springs (x2) which should be filled with graphite grease and oil cups on the rear pivot of the leaf springs (x4) which should be filled with steam oil.

Clutch Mechanism and Pedals

  • The clutch mechanism is lubricated by 2 greasers at either end of the cross-shaft and by 4 steam oil points on the pulling mechanism.
  • The pedal rack is located under floorboards. There is one greaser and two points requiring steam oil.

Gear Selector Greaser

Gear Selector Greaser

Gear Selector Greaser

  1. Remove floorboards by driver’s seat.
  2. Fill gear selector greaser, located directly under the drivers seat halfway along the gear selector shaft.

Rear Axle Greasers

Due to the design of the rear axle the axle should be supported to allow proper greasing of the saddles.

  1. Jack up the corner using a jack and the special axle stand (Jill).
  2. Wipe grease from joint between upper and lower halves of the saddle.
  3. Wind grease into the saddle until if is full (grease will seep from joint when this is the case).

Tappet Wicks

  1. Open the bonnet
  2. Remove the tappet covers.
  3. Apply engine oil with an oil can to the wicks in the valve guide, these are accessed through the upper spirals of the coil spring.
  4. Replace tappet covers.

Engine Greasers

There are two engine greasers, the fan greaser and the distributor greaser. The distributer is hidden behind the inlet manifold. Extra care should be taken when filling the distributor greaser to prevent getting grease into the distributor.

Engine Linkages

Oil all the pivot points of the throttle and timing gear checking the ball joint linkages do not have any slack in them. The extents the the linkages go to are the hand controls on the steering column, the accelerator pedal, the carburettor and the magneto. Oil all the linkages between these points.

Chassis Pivot

The Chassis Pivot

The Chassis Pivot

This is the point just behind the radiator where the chassis connects to the sub-chassis. A drop of engine oil is required on the connection.

Brake Linkages

Lubricate the linkages at all the given points and every pivot, making sure that the linkages are all safe. Start at the handbrake and work back all the way to the brake drum on both rear wheels. Use steam oil or graphite grease as detailed below:

  • The 1st and 2nd Brake Lubrication Point require steam oil
  • The 3rd and 4th Brake Lubrication Point require steam oil
  • The 5th Brake Lubrication Point is located under the offside end of the petrol tank and requires graphite grease.
  • The 6th and 7th Brake Lubrication Point require graphite grease.
  • The 8th and 9th Brake Lubrication Point (Nearside and Offside) require graphite grease.
  • The 10th and 11th Brake Lubrication Point (Nearside and Offside) require steam oil.
  • The 12th to 15th Brake Lubrication Point (2x Nearside and 2x Offside) require graphite grease.

Transfer Box Oil

  1. Remove level plug at the bottom of the transfer box
  2. Fill through top cover plate until the oil runs out of the hole.

Gearbox Oil

  1. The Gearbox

    The Gearbox

    Empty mainbox

  2. Fold over pump propshaft tunnel
  3. Remove the six wing nuts on the top of the gearbox
  4. Remove gear box cover plate
  5. Look at the oil level, it should be at the height of the casting in front of the reverse lay shaft on the nearside of the appliance.
  6. Top up if required
  7. Replace cover plate.
  8. Replace wing nuts.
