Thanks Migge. And are they mounted as I've shown - bezel, jet, plate and rubber all sit on the top of the fibreglass?
That's how I fitted mine Andy, can't see how it could be any other way!

Re: Steering UJ's

Well I do exactly as you say Peter but only because it works with my OCD and allows me to tighten the bolts easily. I'd be surprised if orientation has any real bearing on performance? Excuse the pun.....

Re: Steering UJ's

Thanks Clive, does seem strange. Anyway I've ordered a couple from Moss so I'll pop them in at the weekend and see how it goes.

Steering UJ's

Hi all, I have now done some 1200 miles without a hitch. I expected at some stage to replace the steering rack as it's the original one from the donor and I know it has some play. However I have noticed increasing amounts of play over recent months and rattle which I have now traced to play in both ...

Re: Speedo calibration

Spare tyre choice

Hi, it's March and I'm looking forward to getting out in the car again and planning some longer runs, I've only done 600 miles in total. I am running Avon CR6ZZ's which I'm sure folk here know don't fit in the Hawk spare wheel tub, Gerry told me this before I bought them. So I need recommendations o...
