Wanted Used Front Suspension Top Mount

As per the title, does anyone have a used top mount going cheap/free?

I want to take the dimensions of the unit, to look at the possibility of creating adjustable top mounts and cross brace.

Re: Rusty Custard

Update on our MG ZTT seats. My partner in crime Martin took the seats out to clean them. In a fit of curiosity I asked him if our Securon seat catch stalks would bolt to the seat rather than the transmission tunnel. It turns out that the standard MG/Rover fitting has exactly the same bolt diameter a...

Re: Replacement floorpan

Thanks Dave, a lot of the rust is in the more upright bulkhead section, where it joins the floor pan, I don’t suppose there’s a panel for that as well?

Replacement floorpan

We’ve been checking around the bodywork for rust on found plenty - of course. The passenger footwell has rotted out at the base of the bulkhead. My question is whether there is a panel available to be welded in or do we need to fabricate something? All advice welcome 9469D339-DFBF-4CCB-B230-20494FD4...

Re: 74 Triumph 2000 mk2 dangerously slow and sluggish.

When we bought Rusty Custard, the only way to drive it was ‘foot hard down’ as the engine didn’t pick up until half throttle. The problem was finally diagnosed as the throttle linkages, the accelerator cable would pull the mechanism down immediately but the adjustments on the carburettor connecting ...

Re: Differential Wanted

Hi Alec

Club member Bob Maddock contacted me via the club Facebook and has been able to supply a good 3.45:1 complete diff, which I picked up last night.

I appreciate the offer though, also very interested in your experience with the LSD; are you racing, rallying or is it for road use?
