Re: Gerry's rear axle parts

This is the lower shock mounting shaft. Call Martin Robey and ask for the nuts and washers to go with it. Or take it to your hardware store and get nuts and washers.

Hi Chris I dont know if the front calipers from a V8 will suit your needs or not. I run the large two pot calipers from a 2600 SD1 with MGB V8 solid discs and have all the braking you could need. I keep them cool with ducted air from the front valance. Anyway if you do not use the V8 four pot calipe...
