    Rear Diff Nuts and bolts

    Cheers dude thanks for the advice, so I really need to fix the filler on the cover plate for future fill-up when the diff is in place. Now that everything is stripped from the rear axle, I need to look carefully at the diff, it looks like a hair line fracture on the top where the large bolt attached it to the frame of car. So maybe some welding is needed and whilst its all off, I should really either replace or fix the filler

    Rear Diff Nuts and bolts

    Just a quick safety check question (as I don't know the history of the axle): I gather the only high tensile steel bolts are on the hubs & brake carriers. As these are the only bolts that seem to have 10.9 written on the heads. All the others look standard.

    Rear Diff Nuts and bolts

    Can anybody suggest any places links I can get the nuts and bolts required for a Ford Sierra 7" diff. Or should I just go to Ford Parts? Just stripping down a rear axle to fit onto the kit and most of the bolts are either seized, damaged or stripped. The filler plug is completely seized and no use, but the diff has another filler tapped into the top already. Need to replace the Torx retaining bolts for the the diff cover. Also need to replace the fitting bolts as most needed to be drilled out or cut off. I found these, but would rather replace all of them with new whilst I'm restoring the rest: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Sierra-Sapphire-Esate-Rear-Hubs-rear-Arms-7-diff-differential-Bolts-/253453378826 Any links, ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Dino

    Caffine & Machine - Opening Saturday 27Th Oct 2018

    Thrashed, isn't this officially opening on the 27th? https://www.facebook.com/events/188752982016954/ The Westfield boys are also arranging a meet-up that weekend, so could be a good gathering of 7's.

    Stoneleigh Kit Car Show

    Im sure something will be posted on here, but if you come in your kit for the day you will find the club stand as you drive in ( cant miss is ) and you just park up there and enjoy a cuppa and a chat, if you want to camp ( highly recommend ) they have an area far away from anyone else and you just show your ticket, pitch up and enjoy.

Moira canal festival is in the midlands and a great 2 day event, aimed at families but supported with lots of cars, we didn't go last year and they moved the date but happy to say we are this year. There will be some Westfields there so it would be to see a few hoods keeping the RHoCar flag going There might be an option to camp but there is limited space if you are interested please let me know. We are hoping to camp and please see the link below for more details http://www.moiracanalfestival.co.uk/ ps this is Nikki using Dino's log in, so be nice !!!!!
