Thanks Peter - that really does help!

Does anyone happen to have photos of the assembly for RHD inside and outside of firewall? That would just make it easier to find the linkage!

Not sure what the linkage end looks like, the part that goes onto the brake master cylinder end (horseshoe shape)

Thanks Neil - I'm 99% certain not valve related.  Its quite a revelation to discover how much you can pick up with a simple 5 mechanics stethoscope; you can literally point the touch probe at the relevant point on the head/cam boxes and listen to each individual valve.  The noise is not typical of excessive valve clearance, is intermittent and definitely seeming to come from the exhaust cam wheel area.  Just want to get some idea of how cam is located / supported / bearings etc .....

Cam bearing (shell?) nearest the cam wheel? I'm not sure I'd fully rule out that one of the valve buckets doesn't need re-shimming though? Noise can transfer through metal.

Over the past 18 months have started to notice an increasingly prominent tapping/rattle noise from the top of my engine at the cam belt end.  Noise is intermittent only starts when the engine is fully warm and only occurs at idle. The noise disappears as soon as revs are over 1500 and when engine is under any sort of load, i.e. car being driven.   Using a stethoscope I have isolated location of noise to area around the exhaust cam wheel, definitely not valve related.  My thoughts are camshaft end float?   

Haynes manual is next to useless in providing any real detail regarding how cams are supported/located, bearings etc ...?

Any thoughts, pointers, ideas before I investigate further?

The servo or brake booster and the brake master cylinder sit on the LHS on all the cars. For RHD there is that rod mechanism which transfers the pedal movement over to the LHS and into the passenger footwell. This is surrounded by a metal case which normally has a fibre/plastic cover screwed to it.

Hope that helps

Hello all. .

I have searched high and low for a solution to this but cannot on here. I have an Australian '78 RH drive beta coupe 78.

I have tried to put in the master brake cylinder (i think its called?? the round thing with the 3 reservoirs?? Or is it brake booster??) to the drivers side, but it simply WILL not fit (hits the side of the chassis).

So, I looked and looked at the parts that i have, and I found a pedal set that has a plate which sits on the firewall that transfers the booster to the LHS (passenger side) with a lever from the brake pedal running to the passenger side, horizontally.

Question is, when i put the brake booster (or master cylinder) on the passenger side, the bit that the brake pedal mechanism makes contact with goes into a rectangular part of the chassis, in the cars interior?? like an air con area??

I will back this up with some photos tomorrow. Would be so grateful with any advice - this is keeping me up at night haha!
