Has anyone mentioned the thickness of the glass EG 5mm 6mm if it has been recut buy a glazier sometimes they use 6mm instead of 5mm if 5mm was the original thickness ,That can give you grief also when fitting to rubber.

I recently watched an episode of Graveyard Cars and they fitted a screen in using a similar rubber and did it backwards. They fitted the rubber and then pulled the glass into the rubber. They did break the first screen as they were using old faithful bent screwdriver and it was the corner that broke the glass.

Hi, I spent a little time yesterday fabricating a support stand in readiness for removing the Bedford's gearbox so I can pull the motor.
I've got into trouble today after removing the 4 attaching bolts & levering it to the rear.
The gearbox is stuck about 1-1/2" out from the face of the clutch housing!!
Just can't get it back far enough for the main drive pinion to clear the clutch housing.
Can anyone advise what would be holding it up. I haven't touched the clutch pedal
See photos & one from underneath.
There's another issue to watch out for to in drawing the gearbox back & keeping it level as the gear lever top plate bolts foul the chassis cross member.
Any advice appreciated
By this stage, the input shaft must have come out of the pilot bush/bearing. The splines must be free in the clutch plate (my recent horror problem). Are you able to see if the throwout is free on the front of the gearbox bearing retainer/sleeve thingy? (burr on the end?)
I am assuming it is fouling/hanging up inside the bellhousing somewhere.
Love that cradle!
