|Distributor drive cross-shaft and spacers, the latter with new bushes. 'H' denotes the upper oil holes. Note that there are matching holes diametrically opposite. The 'B' spacer has a bush on the outer end only. 'K' are the slots for the woodruff keys that locate the distributor drive gears.|
View from the 'A' side (offside). Spacer, 'S', re-installed with two new bushes, 'B'. The black appearance is an effect of the flash, not lack of cleaning.
The line 'D' shows the position of the drain hole into the cross-tube that supplies oil to the camshaft / cross-shaft skew gears and to the 'B' side distributor, etc.. 'P' is the blanking bolt in this end of the cross-tube.
|The timing case; looking towards the offside rear. 'W' is the 'A' side weir that lubricates the camwheel. Just visible at 'O' is the outlet for the air from the distributor drive cavity (see the next page for more detail). 'S' is the 'A' side spacer ('B' spacer will not be inserted, along with the cross-shaft, until the camshaft has been installed and timed with the crankshaft). 'T' is the oil supply cross-tube; transfer of oil to the nearside is possible when the camshaft orifice is closed by the shaft and its bush.|
