Andy,
It cannot be too difficult as I had my G'hound diff in an out and do not recollect a problem. Maybe you need some 'bullets' that will centre up the spacers as you tap the bolts through ?

Latest on this is that I eventually found a firm which built up the original casing so as to avoid the weak spot.
Photo attached. I am now in the process of refitting the differential, and am somewhat foxed as to hold the rear spacers, which go in the voids at the back of the diff, in place while the unit is fitted. Once it is in place, there is no room to insert the spacers, so as far as I can see they need somehow to be held in place by something pretty thin which can then be removed (?how) once the differential is in place and the mounting bolts have been inserted. Any thoughts welcome!

Looks like this has been fixed.  You have to select your file rather than using 'drag and drop' - I'll see if we can get that working as well.

Unfortunately Frederic Delaere passed away. He purchased a couple of things from me a few years ago but at the time I didn't have the second seat so I didn't follow up on the tracks. Frederic was a very pleasant fellow to deal with but not an option now.
Still looking. Did any other car use the same tracks?

Ace, Aceca & Greyhound Forum / Replacing camshaft in Bristol ...

Dear all,

Has anyone on here successfully replaced the camshaft on their Bristol engine without taking the engine out of the car?

Thanks.
