Re: Today I mostly .....

Hi Mary, use 'star' washers as apposed to split spring washers. Use nyloc nuts and use a double nut per stud.

If that fails, weld the transfer box to the underneath of the floor........

Having owned more than a couple of the old Estelles i can empathise with overheating issues.

Did you skim or check the head for flatness and warp when it was off? They are VERY succeptible to the heads warping.

They tend to distort the head when they overheat.
