Jack up the car at the rear allowing the wheels to fully drop. Then measure the lowest axle position. I would use that as the highest point where the exhaust should run under the axle.

Hi Tony It was good to meet you too at the show. Yes those are the clips. Since I first posted, a fellow Tiger owner was kind enough to let me have some clips, which, despite my earlier comments, I have used, and so far so good as they are holding.

Thanks. I bought the bush to get the outer dimensions to make a new bush for when I fit a T5 transmission (which has a smaller shaft).

All I need to do now is sort the speedometer drive. :?

Crank Spigot Bearing

I have a new crank bearing spigot bush which measures 35mm OD and 17mm ID, 12.8 depth. Bought from Real Steel. (1.377 x 0.67 x 0.503 inches)

Thanks.
