  1. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    Hi Mike. If you want to retain your existing set up I have a set as new (4 pieces) of the OE Ford ones that I removed from my Compbrake adjustable TCAs that you can have FOC. Peter.
  2. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    Hi Peterx. Its the standard Sierra OE bush setup. They are quite soggy and most people fit uprated ones. I recommend the Superflex ones with the OE washers. I fitted them originally to my old 2.0GL...
  3. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    Thanks Mike. So the failure started top left and bottom right when viewed from the wheel. Interesting but still confusing. Definitely an area to inspect regularly! Peter.
  4. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    That’s true. Those welds seem excessively large for a tack weld just to stop the bolt head turning?
  5. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    Hi Mike. Glad that you have been able to source some replacement brackets. Is the crack in the second bracket next to the bottom bolt facing the front of the car, or the top bolt facing towards the...
  6. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    Marlin used E shaped shims between these brackets to adjust front wheel camber. It’s in the build manual IIRC. I removed my shims as they were unnecessary when I fitted the adjustable track control...
  7. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    When I removed mine to fit Superflex bushes the bolt was an easy clearance fit.

    BTW to fit new bushes the brackets and upper suspension wishbone has to be removed complete from the chassis, as...
  8. Re: Cabrio - hunter stress fracture safety warning

    Hi Mike. Thanks for sharing this. Before you remove the nuts give the threads a really good go with a thin wire brush to remove the paint etc. Then a liberal dose of plus gas. I used a combination...

    Re: Cabrio front Wishbone Brackets

    I suggest as a precaution you replace all four while you are at it. Make sure that the bolts are no longer than existing or you wont get the nuts on! Namrick in Hove will stock the correct grade of...

    Re: Cabrio V8 cooling

    Sounds about right. I read on a Landy off road forum that the mechanical fan contributed to engine cooling due to the constant flow of air over the alloy block and heads. Those guys tend to fit twin...
  12. Re: Cabrio/ Seirra front wheel hub carriers. Take 2

    My old 2.0GL Sierra did not have power steering. The rack fitted to my Hunter is a non PS rack. I would avoid the 120mm AG upright as that dimension would give less mechanical advantage but was...
  13. Re: Cabrio/ Seirra front wheel hub carriers. Take 2

    Have just checked my Hunter as follows. Driver’s side 83BB3K170AH Passenger side no number in that location. However there is a number on the outside of the steering arm, but with the wheel and disc...

    Re: Clunking Differential - play/ backlash?

    I have a 3.38 diff fitted now in my 3.9i V8 Hunter with 205/55 x16 Toyo tyres. It gives good cruising revs but plenty of acceleration when needed. 1st gear is only needed on uphill starts. There is...

    Re: Roadster Electrics

    The fan motor is a permanent magnet type. I believe that if it is still spinning it will be acting as a miniature dynamo generating a small reverse current which is just enough to energise the coil...
  16. Re: Just another bit General Knowledge required...

    I agree with Chris. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Just get it back together and drive it! :D

    Re: Waterproofing bonnet piano hinge

    I would be thinking of U-section plastic or rubber to make a “gutter”. As the hinges, or rather the fold of the bonnet at the hinge, vary between different Cabrios and Hunters, then that would...

  21. Hunter V8 exhaust manifold heat shields

    Catching up on some jobs on my to do list I have finally made up and fitted some heat shields over the V8 manifolds on my Hunter, to try and keep the brake master cylinder and servo a bit cooler....

    Re: MT75 Kwik shift

    I had the same problem with bruised knuckles when I first had my Hunter. I just undid the two screws holding the stereo under the dash, drilled two more holes and moved it all forward 20mm. Simples!

    The master cylinder will be Sierra (two versions / different flange hole centres/ look for ID numbers on the casting) or BMC so sourced in UK. If there is no servo vacuum leak (check this by...

    Re: MOT Failure Excessive Brake pedal travel

    As well as the comments in the posts above, bear in mind the following when working on the dual servo.
    1) The pedal push rod must NOT be adjusted unless the clevis (or rose joint if fitted) is...
