  1. Just thought I'd update this thread in case anyone is interested. They are 3/8 UNF. That's what I ordered and they fit.
  2. Good evening everyone, anyone here with Protech front shock absorbers on their S1? The type that is or was sold by SJ. If so could you please tell me what type / size of top lock nut I need to secure them on top ? I lost mine. I thought these were M10 but those won't fit so I'm guessing they are Imperial rather than metric... All i can find here is metric stuff so I will need to order online. Many thanks in advance.
  3. Hello everyone, I'm having troubles with replacing the lower ball joints on my S1. They are fitted on the lower wishbone so the hardest part is done however.... The new ones supplied by SJ came with a nyloc nut which I can't get to fully lock on the car.... Once the nut reaches the nyloc the whole pivot /bolt, whatever you call it, starts to spin inside the ball joint and it won't go any lower and reach full position /make contact. No way I could get it at the correct torque either. Please see attached photo, this is as far as i was able to go before the pivot started spinning. What is the correct procedure to do this please? Many thanks in advance. Anthony
  4. Found thanks to Giorgio67. Also thanks to Paul Coleman for the help.
  5. Hi everyone, #173G is currently undergoing a partial restoration. As I was inserting a new stud, the passenger side L/H Rear Hub Carrier literally split. I'm therefore looking for a replacement. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.
  6. I hope you find another one soon, good luck in the search.
  7. Awesome, love the Persuaders.
  8. New video of the Range Rover driver being beaten on the ground...seems to be the end part of the beating(???)
  9. ....that or someone stuck a late S1 / S2 steering wheel on Anthony's car at some point. (????)
  10. Paul my steering wheel is exacly like the one in the first photo (the first bigger crash pad model like yours) and my car is further down the line #173 with no central ashtray ( but still a gelcoat car). I'd say Lotus inconsistency once again.
