1976 Elite 504 Light Restoration


Recommended Posts

Thanks Pete, good to know that there is not some other vital piece missing.

Brian, thanks for the detailed thoughts. I agree with you and from what I can see from the posts on the subject, that brace is vital to the integrity of the rear. I made up my own brace and the rear is all back together again (I heated up the hub carrier in the oven to 120 degC which worked a treat for getting the bearings in and out).

Regarding the diff studs, one of them is the correct stud, but the other as you noticed is a socket head cap and I think it's not the right size as well... Pretty dodgy... I have a suspicion that someone who worked on the car bashed the #$&@ of the stud trying to get it out and destroyed it, when there is a far easier and reliable trick to doing this bit... Will add a replacement on the next parts order from the UK.

I have been meaning to post a proper update detailing all of the above, but something is broken on my account. I recently upgraded my membership so that I could upload more attachments, but something seems to have gone wrong and the "max total size" of attachments did not update. Any ideas on how I can get this sorted?

I've tried clearing data, cache, cookies etc and logging out of my accounts but it's not fixed it.
