  1. This for sale topic may not yet available be for your usergroup
  2. Yes, no. 18. Just make sure the bearing comes with the retaining collar.
  3. Assuming you mean the wheel bearings, here's some for starters: BKS90 BRT604 MTK78 BBK604 QWB177C 1604289 (Vauxhall) SKF bearing only part number - 361914AB Can't confirm the numbers below. BK191 160246 ABK090 853024202 805425 304420 R15310 19017727
  4. What about Smith and Deakin? Not that far from you as well. http://www.smithanddeakin.co.uk/price-list/4591246207
  5. Just the lower section so bit of a long shot but I wonder if this could be modified? Look very similar but without the top recess. Hard to tell from one photo. It is a Vauxhall part. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Opel-Rekord-D-Front-Panel-Unknown-24262820/254216123148?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160811114145%26meid%3Dcc3b364fb7c447d7a20a13ad181d577f%26pid%3D100667%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D8%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D333716940982%26itm%3D254216123148%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2334524%26brand%3DGeneral+Motors&_trksid=p2334524.c100667.m2042

  7. Looking at your photo above got me thinking if your timing is set up correctly. When the dowel pin on the top pully is at the top (12 o'clock), the No.4 piston is at TDC but when at the bottom (6 o'clock), No.1 piston is at the top. I wonder if the timing/distributor is 180 deg out (or would it even run, I forget!). I think there is a mark on the distributor to show when No.1 is firing/TDC. The bottom timing chain gear will have it's keyway at the 12 o'clock position. Apologies if this is teaching you to suck eggs, but it does catch people out, me included! It's been a while since I've had to re-time one of these engines so maybe someone can confirm the above is correct.
  8. Moving house = realising just how much crap you have accumulated and thow it out! Moved house = wishing you hadn't thrown that crap out because you now need it! Maybe that's just happens to me Good luck with it all.
  9. Looks really good! Should maybe help with a bit of noise reduction as well and offer a bit of protection with things sliding around in the boot. Wonder if you could use that stuff in place of headlining......
  10. Can be removed in situ. You need to remove the knob from inside the car first. Use a hooked tool to pop of the cover and inside you will see four 'tangs" holding the knob on to the square shaft which clip in to a groove. You need to just very slightly bend these back to release the knob and it should easily pull off. They are plastic and break easily. Maybe something like a plastic sraw might work here, haven't tried that. More fidely than anything. Then it's just a case of removing the three screws from triangular part and it should all pull out from the out side. It's good to see the the plastic cap covering the screw and spring still there. Less likely to be rusty and can be a buggar to remove if they are! Good luck! It's more complex in there than you would imagine. There are gears!
  11. It should do. They can get a bit gummed with old grease in the mechanism. They are fairly simple to strip and clean but there a lot more parts in them than you think!
  12. A couple of photos for reference or anybody that wants them (Sorry the second one is a bit fuzzy!):
  13. I have threaded mine. They're only M3 and use a small but and washer. I just don't overtighten them, just a socket on a short extension and tighten by hand.
  14. That reminds me about bolting another one on, hasn't somebody fitted a PU one for another make, VW rings a bell. Might be buried in one of the projects somewhere. Can't remember if it had to be modified.
