Parts supplies

Post by stylussprinter »

After my last sprint I found the caliper brackets loose PLUS the front wheel bearings , not with any play , but very notchy so have been trying to get them locally. FORD just don't have them listed any more and I didn't fancy the after market ones for the track BUT none of the ' factors ' had them anyway.
MNRacing at Harrogate have a racing background and seemed nice people when I spoke to them regarding SSC. I have a RACELEDA front end complete with hubs which are Cortina geometry and THEY bought RACELEDA from Bruce Irving. RACELEDA did ESCORT/CORTINA/SIERRA & GRANADA/SCORPIO uprights & hubs SO I needed someone who understood all these variations.
Yesterday I sent a cheque for the correct bearings & seals to MNRacing ----------- today at 12-00a.m. they arrived :D Brilliant service and I don't even have one of their cars 8)
My point being that if you're stumped , MNRacing just might be able to help.

i thought so.

Do you know what make the bearings are? are they much stronger than the stock ones or just proven by them?

They're just stock items . Just a matter of fitting carefully with plenty of grease but not too tight --- so easy to over tighten :roll:
