Just received a pair of Track Rod Ends (C25447U). The quality of the main component is excellent but as for the grease nipple which I have shown in the photograph is appalling quality.It has hardly any thread in the body of the nipple and it just pulled out. This is only a minor point but it needs to be addressed.

Hi All...if you have a problem with parts from any if the suppliers then its best to report it directly to them and not via this thread.....Although Julian does often view the forum he has many staff that should be able to deal with your problems........I realise that you are also raising the issues to the rest of us on the forum but please also direct your issues straight back to the suppliers......Steve

Thank you Steve. I have emailed SNG which I hope they will take note. The new track rod ends have 6mm threaded grease nipples and Sod’s law I have a box of imperial sizes. My post was only to highlight the facts. I’ll be happy if they send me a new nipple.
ATB, Paul.

Well i am sure Julian would rather read constructive information about his company's products here rather than buried in the main threads trashing his name. ,after all he can speak for himself ---- as in the post previous to mine.
The thinking behind the "user group" i understood was to improve existing and develop new parts. If the forum needs a separate sticky thread of non compatible/faulty parts then so be it.

Feel free to delete my post 120 --- not wanting to waste any of the forum members time with inane posts.

Julian,

I was just browsing through an old Jaguar Quarterly magazine (Autumn 1991) and found this.

You may have seen it before, but I thought I would post, just in case.

They've come a long way since then with latest figures showing a turnover of just over £21 million. Well done Julian. :thumbsup:

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the feedback - the ones you returned were already being looked into so the further info is appreciated.
We have made these to 1.5" for a long time, but, based on your pictures - it would appear that a slight increase in the OD and a change to the tab to include a radius and protrusion would improve the product.

We plan to check fitment vs the mating parts as soon as we can and advise

thanks

Hi Tadek
Thanks verymuch for all of these, we will look into all of them and report back.
Tadek,
On these issues raised, i am going to drop you a direct mail to reply as there are photos etc and i suspect there will be a bit of back-and-forth to confirm some of the details so i dont want to fill the thread with that...
We can then update once/if we come to an agreement!
thanks

Hi All,
Sorry for the slight radio silence on here so far in 2021 - those of you in business will know these are times when the number of hurdles are more than usual. If it isnt the dreaded "C" thats causing that days challenge - the last few weeks have also reminded us of our old friend "B (rexit)" and considering more than a third of our products go into Europe, the last few weeks have been...invigorating.
Many thanks for posting that pic of the SNGB article from 1991, amazingly we still have one of that team working for us - the guy in the white t-shirt is Tony Lee, who runs our USA branch. Recently, with the E-type 60th upon us, i have been asked for a few word on the history of SNG Barratt and i have been trawling through some of the archive photos that we have and there are some gems. The picture in the article above is from just before we moved to Bridgnorth when we could have fitted all the staff in a large 4x4...
From even earlier days, I have attached a picture from Beaulieu Autojumble in the 1980s - my parents are the couple in the middle and the children to the right of the picture are my sister and I....
Thanks for the feedback on the track rod ends, this one hasnt come my way yet but i will take a look at progress.
I hope all are safe and well, spring is on the way and i have an exciting new product to try in 50EE that i will (hopefully) be able to tell everyone about a bit later in the year - anyone who is very eagle eyed may spot the change at a show...

With reference to another thread on this forum ref brake fluid bottles (C36606) i can advise as follows:

We made some tooling modifications around 2018 to the Sovy branded bottles to address some reported issues with the bottles splitting in the area of the outlet pipe.

Around the same time, we also started selling a brake bottle with the LP hose already fitted as it was out view at the time that it was possible for customers to damage the bottle when fitting the LP hose to it - the link to this is below for UK customers:
https://www.sngbarratt.com/English/#/UK ... 0c36606%60

These was some talk also of the billet versions of these and i did say i would look into this - but have not done so at this stage, so i will do.

In response to this issue above, we have taken a look and we think that the issue raised is as a result of damage at some point rather than a design fault. Our technician advises as follows:

Because the transit boxes have minimal padding, if they are dropped, the head of the nipple take the full force of the impact.
I think that is what has happened to the one on the forum. It splits the body of the nipple and strips out the thread.


So, we are going to check all stocks and repack with additional measures. I dont know if the customer service team have resolved the issue above (i cant always work out who the customer is from the forum handle) so do please contact them to arrange replacement if not already done so.

Thank you Julian. I have had replacements and your sales team were first class in responding to my email.
You state that it’s probably been dropped on the point of the grease nipple but on close inspection there is minimal thread cut which has caused the issue. Regards, Paul.

Julian,

The Gearbox mainshaft tab washer C21618 from SNG
Just to update on this one, we concur with the above and will make a revised version available in the coming months in the next batch that takes into account the changes. Thanks for the input.
