    I think Cedric mentioned them recently and others have used them in the past, no knowledge myself of these - or much else really.

  • Graeme Williams22 August 2019

    Alan: I think the earlier shockers had a straight arm and then changed to a cranked arm which was continued through the rest of the range. These have a cranked arm. The straight arm would make things worse.

    I have not looked at the other side yet but no reason to suspect the springs or axle are out. I wonder whether the triangular panel which supports the shockers is wrong, although, sayi...

    You've just reminded me of Torry's Hardware in Warwick. I discovered it when at a customer in Warwick and I needed some Araldite. I returned many times for bits and pieces, when in the area.

    Thanks again all. I have looked at Barney's site, informative as always. Has anyone done the door panels without use of the metal plates, and still retain the original look to the panel?

    I removed the bearings from a spare break drum,, Mounted it on a spin balance machine and balanced it,,The cones of the balance machine fit against the old bearing ridges..
    Now, when I want to balance new tires, I first mount the brake drum, Then I mount the new tire and rim to that brake drum and balance it. This way, I am balancing the new tire and rim LUG CENTRIC, rather than using the old...

    This is the stuff I'm about to use.
    It's 20w50 with a 1300ppm of ZDDP and designed to survive in a Mini sump gearbox so should be ok in a 1275 A series engine!
    And it's only 16.51 but delivery's a bit steep.

    It was actually a compressed fibrous material. Sort of like super heavy/dense cardboard that did not absorb water.

    But as Dave states, most today use a rubber like product.

    When you change these out make sure you know the relationship of these pads to the door opening.

    I call that a Win!

    Well done - and lucky you for having a proper local hardware store.

    Oh, if only we hadn't lost all those traditional hardware stores! I can think of several in the Leamington / Warwick area where I grew up - they were real Aladdin's caves - and they've all gone!

    The last real 'throw-back' of a hardware store, Birches, here in Shrewsbury closed a couple of ye...
