Trunnion Repair Kit

They should be the same on the one side - they are offset to the front or rear of the car to accommodate the difference in trunnion angles so both sides should be offset the same way (front or rear depending on PAS or non-PAS). If you look at the numbers above, the LH brackets on a PAS car (211306 Q...

Prescott 26 May 2018

Just got home so I won’t phone. I suppose they’re trying to maximise their income. Our entry includes driver and mechanic, not spectators who pay on the gate.

FT180 Key

Sorry Carl, I have very few FT - just 101, 172, 208 & 250.

Do you want me to send you a bunch of FS keys to try in the boot?

Car SOS S6 Ep2 - Lancia Delta Integrale Evo

Just re-watching this episode which was particularly sad as the owner died before the car was finished and at the reveal (Whitmore Hall in Staffs) there’s a red 6 series in the line up.

Manny's SS1 1600

I’d imagine they have different advance characteristics and would make the 1600 a bit more sluggish?

Steering not centering after new rack

Yep, 184 is auto, PAS, RHD.

With non-PAS trunnions on a PAS rack you would normally find the lower wishbone mounts on the wrong sides and the top wishbones the wrong way round just to fit the uprights. I’d remove the whole lot (including 1/2” spacer) and check everything is in the right place.

Damper fitting - small question

Depends which make of damper. Those with a big knurled knob are pretty easy to do whichever way they’re pointing. Those that need a screwdriver would be impossible to adjust without removing the wheel if they pointed outboard.

I want to get the cars registered as VHI, Then I want to insure them as they need to be on the Insured database BEFORE you can apply for Tax, then exemption.
Why do you want VHI before insurance?

Yes, that’s not changed Mark - you must be insured before they’ll issue tax, even free tax.

That’s okay for a historic class car but you’re not going to get a free years tax on anything that isn’t?

And there’s a lot of cars that are over 40 (for MOT exemption) but not in historic class until next April.

FT180 Key

I have a box of random Reliant keys at the workshop - will check tomorrow.

If the economy Reliants use FT keys, I think James Holland (chgperformance) also has a drawer full of spare keys?
