G,day fellers,

I was just having a look at the workshop manuals for the 1100 and 1200 8V and the settings are the same 39 thou and 59 thou, i thought the 8V was 6 & 8 thou, could someone shed some light on that for me please 59 thou that's 1 ml seems a lot.

Wakey.

I think you'll find its 3.9 & 5.9 thou after converting 0.1mm and 0.15mm to thousandth's of an inch.
So, 4 & 6 thou.

Pushrod engine? Four and six thou or 0.1 and 0.15mm

40 thou to the mm for all the things you need to worry about. The sums are easy.

Why? A measurement is a measurement. I find thou for small sizes easier than metric but really at the end of the day it matters not a jot.
