Re: Stag front brakes

The bolts that hold the discs to the hubs need to be shorter otherwise they bottom out in the hub. If you are changing the front to Stag I would recommend you consider changing the rear to Stag too otherwise you will over brake the front in relation to the rear. Stag rears are the same set up but a ...

Re: Matt Nixon

Charles,

That is such sad and tragic news, Matt did indeed help our club greatly in setting up our original website and running it for many years.

Thank you for posting this, huge shame.

Steering column upper bearing - replace in situ?

Strut mounts/bearings

The repro ones are awful. I put some in mine and they tore apart within weeks.
Find a pair of good second hand units, put new thrust washers in , available from Chris witor.

Mot exemption from next year!

It does say that changes to a vehicle completed prior to 1986 will be deemed as being original, so providing you can proves the changes were made early on it then becomes a VHI and qualifies.

What a plonker!
