Re: Lowering rear suspension

Sunbeam Spares sell lowering kits of varying sizes.

Price is POA so you'll have to call them to find out.

Sorry to hear you've not yet found a spring. I hope you have luck finding one in the Netherlands. If not, CJ Pony Parts are very reasonable when it come to postage charges. I bought a Felpro toploader gasket set from them and the postage to the UK was around £10. Thankfully it wasn't expensive enoug...

Hi Peter, Thanks you very much for the info. I'll order one one of those. Did you manage to find a hose spring?

Yes, I think you're right. I would think that the drain taps are the same for LHD and RHD tigers. I am in the same situation as you regarding the drain tap. Mine is something a previous owner has cobbled together. It works, but isn't pretty so I would like a replacement too. I have looked in the pas...

Hi Peter, I'm not knowledgeable enough to help with your problems and as said, the forum is very quiet these days. With your car being a left hooker, have you thought of asking your questions on the CAT forum. http://www.catmbr.org/VB_forum/index.php Much livelier and prevalently frequented by LHD o...

Yeah, they are new.

The old ones were knackered so I got a new set from Sunbeam Spares.

Not cheap but very good quality so should last for a long time.

I suspect that the standard position for the hose was between the filter and water pump, possibly to keep it out of the way of the steering column on LHD cars. http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s298/MARBY555/1965_Sunbeam_Tiger_Mk1_Engine_1_zps5coexjaf.jpg I have mine between the filter and the head...

Membership Cards.

Forgive me as I know this is likely to just be my OCD in overdrive, but as membership time is coming around, I wondered if we could possibly do something about this. http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s298/MARBY555/thumbnail_IMG_1631_zpspayeo0ru.jpg http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s298/MARBY555/0...
