Top Wish Bone Ball Joint
Guest posted a topic in ChassisHi guys the season of good will is upon us , I HAVE A PROBLEM a bit like those jokes in a Christmas cracker you know when you think theres got to be an easy answer to this but i can't think of it right now . as you may or may not know i'm putting together a super spec all seemed good and going quite well after a few set backs .............until today i came to fit the cycle wings and noticed the top ball joint (track rod end ) on the upper wish bone had some play in it looking closer and after taking it off the thing that RH has cobbled together the nut is loose that holds it on , someone must have found a fix as its impossible to get a socket or spanner on the nut let alone turn it cheers Dave

Super Spec Track Rod Ends And Other Bits
Guest posted a topic in MechanicsHi All, I am slowly getting my Super Spec back on the road after a long time sat in the garage (7 long years), there are lots of jobs to do including re-wiring the electrics as i have never been happy with them. I noticed that the rubber on the track rod ends have perished and will need replacing, does anybody know what these are from and where i may get replacements? Before i put it in the garage all them years ago there was a horrible shaking coming from what I can only assume was the prop shaft at anything above 25mph, has anybody else had issues like this and if so what did you find the problem was? Also, before I try and start the engine is there anything I should do such as trying to crank by hand or moving the car forward and back in gear to prevent any damage due to the fact its been sitting for so long? Sorry for all the questions! Cheers, Bugsy
New Builder Help
Guest posted a topic in Fitting & bodyworkHello, I have taken on a part built kit which from reading posts and looking at the poictures I think is a 2B super spec with a rover dohc engine. I have no instructions and can already see several issues with what has already been done. This post (if it works) might find a builder/owner who can help answer my questions OR even better someone who has a similar car somewhere near Bedford who would let me come and have a look. Can any one help please?
