Used to go there a lot. Park on the Trentham hotel, a couple of pints in there then a walk along the canal to the Plume for a few more 😁

Has anyone managed to get a response from the above? I’ve messaged them regarding front brake hoses but can’t get a reply.

Rear brake flexi hoses

Hi, sorting through one of my boxes of replacement parts I have found two flexi hoses. I know that they aren’t for the front as they are attached to the calipers. The problem being is that one is 11.5 inches long the other 8 inches. I’m sure that the old ones were the same length. I didn’t keep the ...

Type 9 gearbox

Philip, I’m not stripping it totally, just enough to change the gaskets and seals.
I made that mistake a few years ago with a mk3 Escort gearbox. Only 4 bits left after! 😁

Type 9 gearbox

Hi all, upon taking apart the gearbox as per the Haynes manual, I’ve taken off the 5th gear locking plate but there isn’t a gear locking spring or pin! Does anyone know if this will affect the gear box. I haven’t driven the car...ever so I don’t know if there was a problem before.
HELP!!!

SS1 1800 CVH Project Steering rack oil or grease

Hi Peter, I have just rebuilt mine and about half a pint of stinky, sludge came out of the old gaiters! Friendly folk on here suggested to put grease in. I coated the rack, liberally with general purpose grease. It now feels much smoother.

Speedo/rev counter

Philip, not too bothered about the mileage just that it works and looks better than the one I have at the moment!
I could give RPW a call to see if they have any in stock.
