Re: Angus’s upper wishbone inserts

Angus takes YOUR original wishbone, machines out the old metal cup, replaces it with a hard nylon insert and puts a new ball in. It is sent back with a ...

Re: Brake control assembly - washer question

Hi Just checked 1. I believe the two washers are for the lower link (see my photo below) 2. There is definitely NO washer between the upper linkage despite the nylon bush lip on the Lower link means it’s not quite flat Robbie https://i.postimg.cc/Y2d6Xxj5/1-E68-BB92-D38-F-418-D-ABBF-E679024-F2909.jp...
