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.

Just throw your ancient imperial feeler gauge out the window and buy a metric replacement Laughing

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.
