back axle all sorted. new brackets, new gaskets and seals. Brakes will be attacked later. May add a little colour to brighten things up :-))

They sound to be interesting people ... in a good way!

the original owner is very............different! in a good way. Cross David Bellamy with Kenny Everett and your close. He had me in fits of laughter with his tales and his wife is barking too :-)  but all in the best possible taste :-). He is the mad professor from back to the future.

Hi Steve - interesting history!  I think the dampers are Armstrong Adjustarides - probably very collectable.

Hi Tony, he did achieve ! he drove this car over the alps and also a grand tour of Eire, all on a 948 moggy engine and box. Torsion bars were bolted to the side rails with a fabricated block. Now consigned to the spares bin. I did jump up and down on it when I got it home and it did work, once I removed the dampers. Now the dampers are free they are strange, my elder brother has hijacked them for his hot rod rear end. Strange people :-)

I've now unsiezed the friction? dampers, very strange things, they almost ratchet and rebound.

It looks quite a tidy arrangement, as far as it goes .... How was the rear of the torsion bar mounted, and what exactly was the builder trying to achieve?

So it is using the torsion bar - interesting

Hi Vern, this is the best one I have on the car:

Hi Steve, do you have any pictures of how the front suspension was set up?
