|Thread: Part built Allchin 1.5 inch|
Are your bearings the spilt type ? if so you will be able to take up that very slight play, another area that can cause a knock is the cross head pin bearing, my D&NY engine always had a knock in that area until I fitted a lubricator as photo.
|Thread: MYFORD 254 LATHE TECHNICAL QUESTION|
On my 254s the clutch is at the same position as on Duncan's lathe, but mine is adjustable it has a "C" spanner that has two lugs that engage in slots in the clutch and was supplied with the lathe when I bought the Lathe from Myfords.
|Thread: DVLA Scam|
I got side tracked to that site when taxing my car, then realising after signing up that it was nothing to do with the DVLA, I returned to the site and found that I could cancel if done within a certain time which I did. (You don't get the 50P back) but you get conformation that your account is closed.

|Thread: Stuck oil filter|
Years ago when I did my own oil and filter changes if I had a stubborn filter housing I used a Chain Wrench Here my car at that time was a Ford Cortina, If you get the filter off smear the sealing ring with a bit of oil before screwing the new filter up tight this helps to stop the sticking problem.
David beat me to it

The 254 has laminated shims between the left and right hand keep plates and saddle, they look like washers the fixing bolts go through them.
