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.

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.

To add to RR's reply, here is an extract from an earlier post I put on here which you might like to check. Beware I have replaced ALL the DIN 73379 hose that I installed 6 years ago with SAE J30R9 hose. During this I came across a badly worn point in the return fuel pipe where it passed through the ...

Front spring rubbing on bumpstop turret.

Thanks Alan SS1, I shall definitely check carefully on reassembly, which might be in the spring, as the snow is falling in Andorra just now and I need to trash it on skis. :oops:
