I'm a newbie on this board and wanted to say hi.
I just bought a 1968 Cobra with a number in the 10800's. It's just been imported from the States and in a poor but 95% complete state.
Wasn't going to take it appart till the winter but could help myself.
I've started stripping it as it had a standing sieze on the left piston. Managed to free it off and clean up the bore fine. Actually the pistons, bores and rings all measure up well within tolerance of standard bore. I'm real pleased about that as it's been stood for years outside. (Im still pulling grass off it!!
I know about the gearbox oil level needing to be increased to 1400cc but how can I check if the conversion has been done without pulling the cases appart?
When I drained the oil, next to nothing came out
Also, did I do wrong by taking out the bolt next to the gearbox oil drain bolt? the one with a long thread and a domed top?
I'll upload some pics of the strip as I do it if anyone thinks it's worth seeing??
Hope someone can help. I don't want to strip the cases unless I have to (Or it's easy)
