Sadly these all went to the great scrapyard in the sky a long time ago. :(

Camshaft kit

1.1 through 1.6 are indeed interchangeable however they are not identical specification wise.
If you are just after a functional engine for the road then go for it, otherwise I would say that a fast road kit from Piper, Kent or Newman cams would be a worthwhile investment.

Bradbury Four Post Lift

Indeed, I suspect that may be the case with it being sold to a highest bidder (newly registered) there and then with cash ontop. Although it was contrary to what the lady I spoke to said when I phoned up to ask what had happened. It was in the unit next door that they had just taken over and they di...

Bradbury Four Post Lift

Oh the frustration! I had chucked on a cursory bid yesterday to mark my interest as highest bidder, something I often do with auctions. Had a chat with the seller this morning, all sounded good, horizontal ram, light use, can help load. Was intending to get down to some proper bidding before the fin...

SS1 1600 Radiator

The radiator as shown (cheaper here - http://www.alicool.co.uk/rad-reliant.html) is correct for the CVH SS1 / Sabre. Not cheap, but for a radiator hand fabricated in the UK it's fair price I think. I believe it was copied from an original 1600 rad that I supplied to Steve Smart for the purpose. http...

Bradbury Four Post Lift

Thanks, will measure up later. Moving it might be the biggest issue. Sounds like a trailer jobbie then, but even so, loading and unloading might be a challenge. I've got two pallet trucks at my disposal, one of which is powered, where there's a will there's a way. Currently highest bidder but I expe...

Bradbury Four Post Lift

Morning all, with the various mention of these Bradbury wheel free lifts on the forum over the past few months it's got me to wondering and keeping one eye on Ebay. Anyway, there is one finishing tomorrow on eBay that's not a million miles away - listing number 163094133574 Not sure on the ram orien...

ss1 classic targa rally car

Will do.

Really like the bronze bushed throttle pedal as well. Try are often worn loose and it's hardly inspiring to have a rattly pedal under your foot.
Worth putting a wee gusset on the throttle pedal stop as well so it doesn't bend away.

Streuth! That's a long rear shock!

Got several complete column and lock assemblies on the shelf, won't be there until next weekend however.

The standard bushes seem to last ok in my experience.

Conversely, maybe we should put posting limits on accounts. 10 per day, keep it short and sweet. More than 3k in 12 months and you get a compulsory account "vacation" and dispatched to the club time-share villa* for some R&R :lol:

*Yet to be acquired, but I hear Malta is very popular.
