    QH part number.

    Thank you Quattro, Yes Winns have them and I have no doubt they are fit for purpose but at £80 each , I want 2 that’s £160 for 2 ball joints . Am I wrong in thinking that is a bit excessive ?

    Play in Top ball joint

    Should there be any play in the top ball joints ( p6. 72 ,2000tc ) with the body supported and the suspension hanging free . With the wheel off I can get hold of the upright and move it up and down. Is this right ? Thanks in advance

    Instruments playing up .

    Sorted !! Changed old fuse box for a blade type box. £6 + 2 hours labour and all my gremlins that I have fought for the past year have vanished. Every thing works as it should . I discovered the lights have been put on a separate fuse holder with 3 Relays that’s why there is only 8 wires going...

    Instruments playing up .

    When I first start driving my 72 TC all the instruments and the flashers don’t work . After roughly 4 miles they all spring into life !! They then work perfectly for the rest of the day. My worry is I want to take it for an MOT but don’t want the worry of them NOT springing into life . Any...

I have only been on one short ride out due to our inclement weather but I did feel a difference. Slightly softer seemed to suit the car better . When our...

    Uprated Anti-Roll Bar

    I got mine from Colin Gould . It does make a difference and as long as the bolts are not rusted should take about 20 mins to fit . Good upgrade .
