Trunionless front supension

I'm considering subject kit from Canley:- https://www.canleyclassics.com/suspensi ... ension-kit.

Firstly, I'm aware there have been several stub axle variants in Scimitars but, have all uprights been consistent over the years in respect of the upright stub axle taper fit dimensions? In other words, ignoring differences in wheel bearings etc., can I be sure that my present stub axles (Middlebridge) will fit the Canley uprights?

Secondly, has anyone experience of the Canley kit or anything similar?

That's been discussed several times in the past - essentially it's the wrong Triumph suspension for our cars (the shape of the upright is a give-away). It's the "small Triumph" setup, as used on, e.g. Herald and Spitfire, not the "large Triumph" one used on TR6 and Scimitar. So rather underspecified for the job.

Thanks Roger and OK, I just lost interest! Pity.
