Sabre steering rack gaitors what from?

Update. I bought a set of the universal ones locally for €9 and fitted them, I was not too impressed with the way the outer end was pushed into the bellows part at full lock, so along with a set of Goodridge brake hoses I ordered the correct gaitors from QRG only to find they are identical to the on...

Sabre steering rack gaitors what from?

I was about to refit my steering rack when I noticed a cut at the track rod end.

Any Ideas please.

Steering rack oil

I had the same dilemma so used 50/50 Graphite grease and Hypoid oil mixed up. as I had that in stock. My choice!

Interestingly, Craig bought my wife's SS1 Ti from GW, which had just had a new turbo fitted.
Yet another bit of useless info!

JIm do you have a copy of the Cert of conformity? As when I finish rebuilding the front suspension I will be trying to register it on Spanish plates.

Hi Jim. For your info when my wife ordered the Sabre 2113 she was told that Reliant had stopped building any LHD Mk2 Sabres with the Ti motor. However Graham explained to Reliant that as My wife had owned an SS1 1.8 Ti for a couple of years. She would not be happy with a K series with the down grade...

Rear shock absorbers

When they arrived I put a dab of fine grinding paste on them then put them in a drill and 2 minutes with them on the ball ends in a rotating action. Cleaned them up, added some engineers micrometer blue which gave me a good contact pattern.

Rear shock absorbers

This is what I found in mine, and it now has the bronze saddles.
A local guy here in Spain had superglued the nylon saddles as a repair!

I got them from https://www.seriouslylotus.com/suspensi ... g/steering

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Just to help confuse/clarify my Mk2 LHD Sabre 18Ti was registered in the UK at the end of December 1993 to avoid the need for a Cat, which was a requirement as of Jan 1994.

Here are the correct ones.
Like you I also have a set of the wrong ones.
