    I would strongly advise the use of grease and not oil to lubricate the trunnions.

    There were some design changes made in attempts to cure the understeer that the Marinas suffered from.
    Primarily this increased the thread engagement length between trunnion and swivel pin.

    The fundamental reason for failure of the setup is lack of maintenance. If you do not strip clean and grease the trunnions on a regular basis, or as a minimum re-grease them, with an excess of grease, driving the old grease out then problems will occur, whether you use the standard or Walford Trunnions that are intended only to replace the worn or corroded thread on the swivel pin.

    An interesting document describing the changes to both the trunnion and swivel pin can be found here or there

    I am with Steve on this one - had a one snap for that reason back in the 70s, think the car was only 5 years old.

    As a comparatively new forum user you will not know the history of my archive on Keepandshare.

    if you would like access, it’s free, then all you have to do is follow the link in my forum signature below. You have managed the first step, opening a new account with Keepandshare, just missed the second step, asking me for access.
    if you are interested email me at stevejgreen@btopenworld.com

    i will wait for you to contact me.

    If I remember correctly you thought you had a right to just take my efforts. I think you had forgotten your Keepandshare username and/or password and expected me to know them? (Others have done the same, I treat them as special cases)

    Well for everybody’s security, I don’t know Keepandshare usernames, until I am told, and I don’t want to know your password, I can’t answer that sort of question.

    Would you like to read and learn?

    Send me an email at stevejgreen@btopenworld.com 99% of people who do are happy.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Here is a copy of the last PM that I sent you on 19 November. I don’t think you can call this snotty, on the contrary, I tried to help!

    Last and final check

    I have been watching activity on Keepandshare and have not noticed any activity from you.

    I presume you have no further interest in accessing my archive.

    if I do not hear from you or see activity over the weekend, I will assume you are not interested anymore and will not bother you again.

    You touted this "Keep and Share" as a resource we could all use

    Then when I tried to actually use it - joining it and all that bollocks you were snotty as all hell

    I hope that I never need that "resource" as I do not put up with being treated like that!!

    I have responded to Duncan privately, as before I do not expect a reply.

    I have found your messages - and they are just as snotty as I thought they would be

    I see no need to associate with somebody like that

    If I do need some more information I expect to be able to talk to polite and sensible people to obtain it - not you!!
