Re: Squeaky suspension

Hi there Stylussprinter, The forum has been working for a while now, although few visitors it seems. Anyway I can confirm that the whole front upper rocking arm pivot pin bearing arrangement on my 97 Stylus is indeed from the equivalent part from a classic mini - both bearing and shaft. Pretty good ...

Re: Squeaky suspension

I used to have alot of squeaking from all over due to the rear end bushes having been assembled dry. Are you sure it's at the front? If so then the rocker arm is from a Classic Mini trailing arm axle/shaft, complete with roller bearings and grease nipple - could be worth having a look in case it's ...

Re: petrol tank

A small updte for anyone thinking of doing this: I just had a new tank made for a Dutton, using an Bosch 044 style pump. They made it wrong unfortunately so that the fuel outlet comes out at the top so I was concerned that the pump might not work due to lack of a gravity feed. So we just tried it us...

Re: Part built stylus RT

Dropping the seat base lower in the floor could also be good if your taller than say 5" 10'. Also helps any rollover bar fit inside a hood LED headlamps would be worth considering although any 7" can be made to fit if you've got the mouldings for round ones as well C Class Merc Radiator v cheap and ...

Re: Stoneleigh17

We were there on the Sunday and there was one other - an unfinished RT on a trailer.
Never did speak to anyone about it.

Car was smooth both ways!

Re: Dashboard Contents list

As we know there can be many many electrical connections to the dashboard that makes removal and replacement a pain - especially on Stylus where the windscreen does insist on getting in the way all the time! Putting it all on a plug and socket would help but it tends to be difficult to find a suitab...

Re: Interior

Very nice. Where did you get that done? My carpets were from Peter Powell as a standard set but unfortunately as the tunnel is a bit taller than standard they never fitted 100% I also notice you have those grp she'll type seats. How do you find them height wise and width wise. Do you have that bar o...
