I am working on the front suspension. I dismantled the front wishbones and ordered new bushes. In the haynes manual there is a difficult explanation how to remove and replace them, needing special tools. Off course I dont have those tools, and i dont think my replacement bushes are originals. They seem to be Poly.

My plan was to use the spacers from the old bushes and reuse that and just press the new bushes in. Has somebody any experience with this . comments are highly appreciated. Thanks

I also bought new rear ARB bushes (photos later)

Hi

For the front bushes, a press or long bolt etc will do to get the new bushes in. I used Poly ones and I put the bushes in first by hand and then pressed the central spindles in after, cannot remember if I needed to use a bolt to do it or not, guess it depends how difficult the bushes prove to be.

disassembling the brake booster was hell. I couldn't reach the top bolts so I had to disassemble the pedals also (which wasnt the plan). In the haynes manual its easy explained how to take the pedals out, but reality was something else. I fear the day I have to reinstall them

the engine bay is quite dirty but the metal is good.

like i said earlier I installed new rear suspension struts. after installing the whole thing and putting the tires back on, it seems to me that the car is sitting high (?) like you can see on the photos.

next job is cleaning and painting the engine bay, cleaning the subframe and installing the front suspension again. than I wil start with filler.

remember I said the metal was good.... aaaahh wishfull thinking

the lower front off the engine bay is a bit rusted. Because the subframe is bolted here to the frame , and I don't want to weld upside down no more, I've cut the whole profile out, so I can repair it in a comfortable , propper way.

I seperated the subframe from the engine. very dirty and a bit of rust. The rust is on both sides of the frame on the same place. There is also a piece that is pressed in, probably from jacking up the car.

Hi

Nice work, I enjoyed rebuilding the master cylinder, less so the front wheel cylinders with the really difficult retaining ring.....

On the lower ball joints for the front wishbones, I found one of the new ones I bought, different suppliers for both bought at different times, had too high a threaded section and had to cut it down, otherwise it fouled the drive shaft assembly. I think it was a Delphi one from memory.
