Vented Brake Discs & Stub Axle Bearings

If there's no grease in sight it's likely all original fitment as Reliant front bearings are sealed.
Greasy small nut then chevette missing dust cap although unlikely as I'd go out on a limb and say there's no way QRG would supply and fit the Chevette based conversion.

A picture would suffice for identification of your are unsure.

I suspect you have vented "Graham Walker" discs.

New wheel bearings really available from the dealers.

Felicity Crouch

Kristine and I very saddened by the news.
We enjoyed so many lovely chats and chuckles with Felicity at various events over the years. Such a tragic and unexpected loss I really don't know what to say.

Our deepest sympathies to Brian and the rest of the family.

SS1 heater blower assembly

Vauxhall Astra MK2 for the original motor and squirrel cage, although this needs cutting disc to half width (as Reliant seemingly did)

I possibly have a worn out motor with good rotor although separating them from the shaft never seems to go well..

Manny's SS1 1600

Have you compared the shock absorbers to determine they are identical? Unlikely but someone could have substituted something odd into one side.

Tyre profiles same both sides?

Mixed nuts!

So to answer your question. For steel wheels or those alloys with steel seat inserts, use LH. For the vast majority of alloy wheels, which will have seats machined into the plain alloy of the wheel, use the flared type on the RH. Although either will probably be fine although the LH but would have a...

Mixed nuts!

Left hand is a standard later type SS1 nut for use with all original fitment wheels which feature steel seat inserts.

The right hand is a generic aftermarket nut with a broader flared 60 degree taper, as used on most alloy wheels with or without seat inserts.

Triple plate chroming recommendations

From my personal experience I couldn't recommend Ashford chroming at all. Very slow, terrible communication and at one point I thought I was going to have to drive down and recover my parts fearing I would otherwise never see them again. Their service may have improved, recent reviews seem favourabl...

The point of posting really was to merely underline they importance of pushing back at renewal time otherwise these thieving gits get away with bloody murder. 15 million members of the AA. How many forget or are too lazy to pick the phone up each year..

breakdown Recovery AA vs RAC or who?

I suppose the crucial difference is on the one hand you are buying an insurance policy with a brokered service contract that is in theory all dandy but does give greater potential for head aches. Then with the other established services (AA RAC) you are buying into a broad service membership with it...

breakdown Recovery AA vs RAC or who?

That time of year again. AA renewal dropped through the door last month and up to £243, but generous as they are they even included a couple of "thank you" discounts to choose from, the same cover at the price of 10 months (£201) or £10 off for giving them my home or motor insurance renewal date.
