Question:
I've recently watched your informative film on rebuilding BMC A series differential units on You-Tube. I've rebuilt several of these units over the last 40 years and have always found them a pain to set up because of the need to pull off the carrier bearings to adjust the shim setting. I loved your solution of using larger shims on the outside of the bearings. Why didn't BMC think of that! In fact when I watched your film I found myself wondering why I hadn't thought of doing it myself! Its so simple when you know the answer...In the film you say these larger diameter stainless steel shims are available from you. I'd very much like to acquire a range of the shims to try in an upcoming rebuild of a 1955 Austin A30 differential. Could you please advise me of their part number/s so I may order some? I believe the carrier bearings are the same size on the A30 differential as on the later units used in the Morris Minor A35, Sprite etc. The earlier pinion bearings are similar but they don't have the crush spacer between them. Bearing preload is adjusted with shims. I'm so pleased I watched your film it really was enlightening.

The larger diameter outside shims are found here:
