  1. Alan, Can you help with part numbers for the U,J,s on the 05 Superspec, The gearbox is Ford MT75 and the Diff I beleive is Ford Sierra.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Peter

  2. Alan, I borrowed a ramp yesterday it appears that the universal joints on each end of the prop shaft are breaking down, probably through lack of grease. Do you have any part numbers for the UV,s?
  3. Keith The clutch was heavier before I made improvements. However I have just noticed that you have a 2B I am not sure if the gear box and mounting plate are the same as mine.
  4. Keith The clutch cable I fitted to my car was a Volvo cable. Quinton Hazel part no. QCC 1240. I also extended the clutch release lever so that the hole in the conversion plate and the lever were in perfect alignment.
  5. Keith The clutch cable I fitted to my car was a Volvo cable. Quinton Hazel part no. QCC 1240. I also extended the clutch release lever so that the hole in the conversion plate and the lever were in perfect alignment. The clutch on my car is not heavy at all.
  6. I have just had my 05 SuperSpec up on the ramps it appears that one of the cv joints on the prop shaft is showing extreme ware due to lack of lubrication. 

    Is it possible to remove the prop shaft without removing gear box and diff?

    Does anyone know part numbers for the cv joints front and rear of the prop shaft?

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Pete.

      Hi Peter,  you appear to have posted this on your personal profile page rather than in the main forum, you would probably be best starting a new post there.  

  7. Allan, I replaced the phosphor bronze bearing with a dust proof roller bearing some years ago. This is a different problem. Do you know the origin of the superspec diff. This was the only non new component fitted to the original kit.
  8. My Car drives like a dream when accelerating, however when the throttle is released there is a nasty clattering noise coming from the clutch,, gearbox or differential. Any ideas?
  9. Be warned. 1. The admin fee this firm will charge you for is voluntary not compulsory. 2. Personal dealings with this firm tell me that the warranty is not all it appears to be. 3. Additional charges they tried to charge me were 1. £500 warranty 2. £200 Alloy wheel insurance. 3. £ 95 Admin charge. 4. £200 Gap insurance. 5. £700 Price hype Total cost added to original price of car £1695 Take a photograph of car with price displayed when you make deposit. (their policy is to change prices without notice) Check car for service history documents. On two occasions I was presented with documents only to find original documents in car I hope you find this of use.
  10. I have managed to bend the nearside lower wishbone on my 05 superspec. Can anyone tell me where I might find a replacement?
  11. Alan I have deleted the messages in my PM box. Should work now. (didn,t even know it existed) Pete. I did make a list of part numbers for things like Clutch cable, remote oil filter and Bearings for pilot hole on flywheel to replace original bronze bearing.
  12. Alan, Many thanks for your reply. Not sure what a PM is? But I found your Tasks completed list most interesting. Much of it I have done myself. With regard to the cooling system I swapped the pressure cap on the header tank to one rated at 20lbs and it has never overheated or boiled dry since. Thanks for the info. Regards Pete.
  13. Can anyone tell me the origin of the steering rack. (which car was it fitted too originally?)
