Re: Polybush, New Source.

Hi Pete, the bush bolts to the chassis in the usual way and the lip on the bracket stopped lateral movement, on the original bush, until they became unbonded. I guess it will work or it wont, worth a punt. https://awp8mw.by.files.1drv.com/y4mWNDCOmWkTcrMSNB916SiznqGfn6PC_3TNK2VD2G4EPUbUanzSiR1rdT1In...

Re: Headlight units

There are a couple of places that do headlight bowl resilvering, if your bowls are sound. Not the cheapest option. The lens can be removed with a strong knife and some gentle prising.

Re: It started with a brake pipe

Hi, Thanks for the replies, info much appreciated. The crush tube makes sense now and Pete`s tube + shims sounds much better.

It started with a brake pipe

Then the next pipe, calipers-not good, parking shoes-delaminated , hub-could be better and before you know it you have a pile of rust on the floor. https://dhx6ya.by.files.1drv.com/y4mJzW9INFZTzswQxE0FQB6FPzm2IQ3pXmQyd9GN9l_uJZS_he2wO-O6iq07nCiMaV6CGQHVpZXLSf8YAKSNfd1Ca6VZJk1GtTL2BV3jIpZScZPt6rLCW7i...
