Could someone please confirm if this is correct for a Sagaris. The top front wishbone has the two spacers at the front of the bush. It has been pointed out to me that this may not be right as a T350 has them either side. This is how it was prior to dismantling but it may have been wrong to start with.
Many thanks Chris

I am assuming that you have the Speed Six bible already.

In the off chance that you do not (an absolute must for the fantastic work you are doing), http://www.varleyhyd.com/FJ062.asp may help.

Some of the pictures on the website show it but there are many, many more in the Varley handbook

Yes I have the Sagaris book by GV and have tried to study the pictures but they are quite small so I took a picture of it and blew it up and it looks as if this is the correct way to do it. I must get better glasses. Thanks for the help

There are two seals on the rack one is at the end (drivers side the other is deep within the rack and is a pain to get to it without some sort of specialised tool. Luckily the one leaking on mine was near the end so all I had to do was drill a couple of small holes in it with a dremel screw a couple of long self tapping screws in and use a small slide hammer to pull the old seal out. There is a circlip to remove first then just press the new seal in and replace the circlip simples

Thanks- much appreciated. mine is also leaking on the passenger side; albeit the least of my worries while I await diagnosis of my clutch failure from RVT. I'll hopefully get it done then.

It certainly wont be ready for this summer unfortunately. I just need to get the chassis and body reunited so I can then get my Griff home and use that for this summer but no space at the moment its amazing just how much space a dismantled car takes up.

Thanks STE VR this part is the most enjoyable. I have a query about the prop bolts on the car when I dismantled the car it had two odd bolts two that were fully threaded and two that were only partially threaded. None of them had lock washers on them. So I guess the fully threaded bolts were wrong but should they have had lock washers on or just thread lock?
Cheers Chris

Chims and Griffs just have shouldered bolts with nuts, no washers.

The Sag is slightly different as it has a spacer on the diff that is threaded so the prop bolts straight into that with a allan head bolt no nut.
cheers

You have been busy , that is looking really good ,you must be pleased with your progress.
Is anything being done to the body while your doing the chassis or is that the next stage .
