Hi Mark. I'm near Banbury, Oxfordshire.

Do you have a picture of a GTE bush?

All the hard copy history went when I sold the car so all I have is a few digital photos. If you PM me your email address I'll send what I have.

It's a shame but I never started a project thread on that car on here so remember very little. It was an Ebay purchase and the NS rear trailing arm failed in a spectacular way one day. Other than that sorry..... :roll: :lol:

The rear diff rubber mounts were off a rover p6 from memory. If you have the old Bush get the number off it and Google it. They aren't easy to get hold of and were about £50 each. They occasionally pop up on eBay.

I've changed a number of Se6a column bushes and a couple of SS1 ones, and I'd say they look identical to my eyes. I've never needed to put a micrometer on them to compare though.
