Fitted the sunroof washers supplied by Tom Fenton. The old ones were a bit past it by the look of them :D

Fitted a horn switch, as my stalk is knackered.

if you haven't lost any rollers it'll be fine, mark where the tripod is so it goes on the same splines again then knock it off, slip a new boot on and reassemble.

cheers min... pretty sure I haven't lost any rollers thanks for that!

been meaning to do this for a very long time, finally removed beam from road car.

time honoured method of releasing siezed torsion bar that's been neglected.

O/S axle clean but still scrap, and nothing compared to the N/S axle...

Think it's fair to say this is not a good sign...

But it makes sense to me now, because the N/S arm was toe'd in so badly that it was visible by the eye, couldn't figure out what was bent, but obvious now.

Hopefully, the beam tube can be saved.

I wish you luck with that. As experience tells me you'll be needing a new tube

it would be possible, but not worth it as a one off unless you are an engineer that doesnt value their own time

The bit I'd have done differently would be to leave the brake lines attached and carefully remove the caliper and brackets and feed it all off the beam as you remove it. No need to deal with bleeding the brakes and the typical snapped bleed nipples then.

 

Tube I'd agree is probably scrap, but looking at the photo you have a few others to one side.

 

Its not a bad job to bore and sleeve the end housing.

After 4 years, she's on the road again. Passed TUV at the first attempt. Still lots of things on the to do list.
