  1. I believe white hoods have always been an option and were often fitted to US export cars. Stuart.
  2. If you mean the door bottoms at the rear are protruding a bit (not unusual) a skilled body man would be able to cure this quite easily rather than resorting to filler. Stuart.
  3. No Roger its not unfortunately, Sidescreen inner sill is pretty much a sealed unit so drains are needed. Stuart.
  4. Do you know the provenance of the s/hand shaft? I`m wondering why anyone would bother undoing the hub nut unless it was a failed attempt to remove the hub in which case it may have already been over strained on the shaft. Personally I wouldnt have touched it with a barge pole. Not nice to have a hub shaft part company. Stuart.
  5. But are the missing bits in the sump? Stuart.
  6. Not exactly helpful. Stuart.
  7. No Ive seen some with a screw cap like the prop and also a turnkey too. Stuart.
  8. No where the two halves slide together. Stuart.
  9. Shafts arent handed and are the same through the range with some slight differences in where they join. Stuart.
  10. Quite often that area needs leading to get that line straight to suit. But sometimes the beading will hide that, thats what it was there for in the first place. Stuart.
  11. You need both seals as its always best to do both at the same time. Stuart.
  12. Yes you can, get a six sided 11/16 socket instead of the usual 12 sided then you will get proper purchase and get them done up to 65Ftlbs then they dont come loose. Stuart.
  13. I would just fit new studs for the wheels your going to fit as those are definitely not long enough, correct ones have a slight lead in taper on the nut end to ease fitting of the nut. Stuart.
  14. Thats the difference between IRS Hubs and solid axle hubs, IRS hubs need the chamfer. Stuart.
  15. If you use the thinner spring insulators all round that will drop the suspension by a fair bit in comparison with the thicker ones,https://www.superflex.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=SF378-2327K also you dont normally need to disconnect the drive shaft to drop the spring out, with standard length springs you usually just have to disconnect the shock drop link and the trailing arm will drop far enough to get the spring straight out, so that tells me your springs arent standard Stuart.
