Bottom Trunnions

Hi

I'm replacing both bottom Trunnions on my 68 4 door moggy, an advisory after the last MOT, are they both the same, or is there a left and a right, if the latter, how can you tell the difference? Any tips appreciated

Regards

Re: Chassis leg repair
Postby rreems » Wed Mar 08, 2017 6:49 pm

Is it possible to replace a chassis leg with the engine in the car and the car placed on Axle stands? Is there room enough to to get under the car without using a car lift?
Many thanks

Cigarette lighter socket

Hi I'm thinking of installing a cigarette lighter socket in the glove compartment using wires from the Radio that was there, should I use an inline fuse? If so what fuse should I install

Re: Seats

Hi, I think I must have miscommunicated my request! if you see the attached picure, does the Outer edge of the seat fit within the edge of the frame/ seat well, whatever it's called, or does the seat just fit on top? Hope this makes better sense? Regards Richard[frame] http://mmoc.org.uk/mbimage.php...
