  • FT Franz21 October 2020

    Hi this is the design of the axle,
    think a little bit different
    i have now on both sides a bearing with seal, so the oil can t come to the brake...
    the seal behind the bearing has no funktion anymore
    or?

    Skate boards are bad enough.

    Advert just on the telly. So cheap that it won't be long before the roads and pavements will be plagued by these things. 15mph, and no quick means to stop before knocking someone down, or ending up under a car or lorry, the driver of which will be blamed no doubt for some reason or other.

    Nigel,

    thanks for the MGOC pointer.

    David,
    thanks for the Powertrack suggestion but I think that is Paul HUnt?

    Guy,
    yes I wondered if that might make a difference (see opening post) so will do it first - noting to lose but a bit of time:)

    Buying new, from a reputable supplier, may be the solution. But if you have replaced the innards, perhaps you assembled the valve disc and/or the piston seal wrongly. Maybe worth a check first?

  • W A Chasser21 October 2020

    Fixed my misaligned boot panel holes yesterday with dowel stock and wood glue. I also bought the sheet of 1/2Ē B B plywood and made new panels as well. But the repairs are solid in the older panel so I will go ahead and reuse them. With the left over plywood I will likely make a set of floors and offer them for sale.

    Wiring be damned if I havenít made headway on my gremlins, the car wil...

    Two photos of the drivers side sidescreens, front and rear section showing glass with kite marks meaning (I suppose) it is toughened safety glass.

    Hi can anyone please tell me what the bracket (the one with the hole in) and welded to the rear axel (facing forward) is for???

    I also noted that the U-bolts were threaded UNF. Is this normal? This is all on a 1954 TF.

    Regards. John

  • David Smith21 October 2020

    you may be better to call a recommended and reputable specialist supplier such as Powertrack

    Mike will probably be along to discuss the second item.

    The first seems very low priced, I've no idea it might be better quality and/or longevity than others, or the same or worse.

    The generic plastic ones I've got from MGOC haven't leaked and bleed very easily.

    I worried about the piss-poor rubber of the repair kits also being in the new m/cs but not so far.
