Body side to cab brackets

Hi all, does anyone know if these brackets are still available to purchase? If not how essential are they?

Re: Convertible - covering the rear rail?

On my original it's the wooden frame that the hood is attached to via screws. Guessing on yours its self tappers into the metal ridge at top rear?

Re: Cab to chassis bolts

Biggest problem I have is that I did not strip the pick up down, no pictures, labelled parts or nuts/bolts to assist with putting it back together. Are there any van/pick up bibles out there, I have all the well known ones and a bath catalogue but they lack the detail about LCV's I would like. How I...

Re: Cab to chassis bolts

Hi Les, thank you for the info, to be honest I did not know that they were for the seat belt fittings, probably would of worked it out down the road when too late. Big learning curve putting this pick up back together, lots of differences to the convertible that I am fairly familiar with.

Cab to chassis bolts

Hi all,
Would anyone know the size of the rear bolts that secure the cab to the chassis on a pick up. The two that fix through the cab floor to the plates on the chassis that have treaded holes.
Any suggestions please.

Pick up part

Good evening all, I do hope everyone is well and keeping safe. Can anyone let me know what these are used for, they look as if they cover the hoop hole to me. Cannot find any reference to them or picks to show them fitted. However my wife informs me that I cannot even find my own socks when they are...

Re: Austin Pick up 1972

Hi, sorry to say the original engine is long gone and the number is not recorded on the log book, where would I find the cab number? Looks as if the chassis plate from the door card is also gone, however I do have several boxes of stuff to sift through. If it turns up will be happy to provide detail...

Re: Austin Pick up 1972

Hi POMMReg, thank you for the response, what did you mean by weights more important? Only reference I can find to on the log book is 746.1 KG unladen. Also not sure what is meant by Pea green chassis plate.

Re: Austin Pick up 1972

Hi Les, thank you for the encouragement. It is registered as a pick up and I know of the two previous owners, the first bought it new as a pick up so wondering if there were some oddities going on with chassis numbers towards the end of production. It is a K reg.

Re: marina/ital

Hi Phil, Thank you for your replies, it does have TAM2011 stamped into the centre of the pulley. It could also well be 24.4 mm as just using a steel rule. Will have a another go after using wet and dry.

Re: marina/ital

Hi, I believe the crank pulley/damper is off a Mini 1275 motor so perhaps that's the issue. Measured crank nose and pulley centre, both are 25mm, will not slide on even with a thump with a rubber mallet. Crank is stamped 12G1303A and H38AXA7.

Re: marina/ital

Sorry to bore you all to death with this but I recently discovered that a standard 1275 crank pulley will not fit on this engine. Too small.

Re: marina/ital

Thank you for all the replies, so the pistons I have are identical to the ones philthehill posted, does anyone know where I can purchase a set of standard rings from or the part number even.

Re: marina/ital

Mine is also ribbed and standard, the rocker cover has an A+ sticker on it. Odd that the Ital workshop manual has 3 rings while the marina one has 4. Will keep looking for the rings but may need to purchase new pistons as you have. Thank you for the reply.
