Re: Rear Road Spring

Re: Drivers seat runner

I have some used Mk2 seat runners tucked away in the garage - I can check tomorrow for you if you wish. I can also look for the front tread plate that you previously mentioned as well, if you have not been able to straighten your existing one out!

Johnny,

If you know where I can get hold of a MK1 choke cable that doesn't need a peg to stop it going back in, let me know. £1,000,000 cash waiting.

Jeff
I have some original good used Mk1 choke cables. I will check what I have and let you know.
You can have two for that price Jeff... :lol:

Re: Rear Handbrake Cable Mark 2

The rear handbrake cable that runs between both rear wheels has different 'fork' ends on each side. One is fixed (no adjustment) whilst the other side has the square nut in the fork onto the threaded end of the cable for adjustment.
