S/S Back box rubber ring hangers

Recommended Posts

My 1978 Éclat has S/S back boxes but the rubber ring hangers have seen better days as she's stood a few years, does anyone know what size they should be ?

Cheers Paul

I just use standard rubber rings from the motor factors. Not the small ones, the sort of "normal" size ones.

 

(I realise my description is not that good, but the normal circular hoops is the best description I can give..) :huh:

I got the small donut ones 2 x per exhaust for the rear hangers from Halfords.

Shocking I know - they had the correct part on the useful shelf.

I just checked parts I have kicking around... I bought both and I have a 34mm "HEX400" still there... which probably means it is the other one :thumbdown: most likely 50mm.

I seem to remember them still being rather techt.

I can have a look later.

use the 50mm ones.

 

Also note that the S1 has different hangars from the later S2 and excel, so I wouldn't use a precedent from a later car.
