GTC lower wishbones

Post by Dennis Nicholas » Thu May 16, 2019 3:12 pm

My GTC car No. 285. Built 1980. Prepared for sale 1/3 1981. POWER STEERING.
Raised Numbers on N/S lower wishbones are:-
Front 213628 (N/S or LH)
Rear 213629 (N/S or LH)

These numbers are at variance with the numbers in the 1976 Reliant spares list:-
Front 206035 (LH)
Rear 206038 (LH)
Is this just a renumbering by Reliant of the same parts or are the GTC ones in any way different and if so how?

The GW 1st and 2nd edition catalogue(which is post the 6b) just gives 206039 and 206040 which in Reliant spares are lower wishbone ASSEMBLIES.(presume complete with pin/bushes/shield etc.)

I've always presumed that the numbers cast in are the manufacturers numbers (Stanpart????) rather than the Reliant stock number? Same as with engine components for example?

Correction...numbers should read 218628 and 218629 after further cleaning.

Roger.ref your last I have been used to the Austin 7 part numbers being on most parts so assumed it was true with the Reliant.
And they do bear such a similarity to "part numbers" quoted in the spares list.
(After all they are just grown up Austin 7 relatives :shock: )

They must be Stanpart numbers - the lower wishbones were unchanged from SE5-GTC.

I recently fitted lower wishbones from a early manual se6 to a late PAS se6a. the only difference I could find between the wishbone arms was that the early ones had a extra hole that is unused with plastic bung to stop it filling with dirt.. The later ones did not have this hole drilled out. Car is not back on the ground yet but lower suspension bushes and PAS trunnion fitted perfectly. It all lined up with the upper wishbone too.

The extra hole was for the lower spring pan on the Triumphs.
Some arms were machined across all the raised castings, some were left plain and others drilled, depends upon which bin they took them from.
I have even seen some that were tapped to accept a bolt.
