... I have similar screw thread trunnions on the Triumph GT6, Bill ! They have to be amply lubricated with heavy gear oil and NOT grease or they eventually pop out as you described.Here we go again, that reliant Scimitar reminds me of the GTE that one of our directors had mid '70's. Because we didn't have a local dealer back in those days I had to find where to get spares from and that's when I realised that Reliant didn't make cars, they just made the bodies, for example the engine was a Ford V6, the door handles were Morris Marina, the axle was Jaguar.
The front suspension was Morris the reason I know that is because I once had to go out and tow it back when both the bottom joints popped out at the same time, it was a common fault with the Morris suspension the joint was like a screw thread and luckily they used to pop out when on full lock so it only happened at low speed.
I sympathise with you there Nick I've had the same frustrating problems.Not sure why the Porsche picture is only shown as a thumbnail when all were loaded in the same way. This new forum software certainly gives me a bit of grief and appears to take
random action on it's own. Trying to post text and pictures is a nightmare as the text gets broken into random snatches and posted all around the top, bottom and side margins of the pics.
Nick, is that a Marcos pictured above the Scimitar ? great pics btw.
Glad you like the Bullnose pic. This is the badge on the rad shellYes, yes, yes. I am from Oxford or to be more precise, Cowley. What a beautiful Bullnose Morris you had the privilege of photographing. I used to drive one of them. Throttle pedal where the brake pedal is now. You have made my day.
Thank you again.
