On my GT6, both trunnions have the same part number on. Aren’t they handed because of the left hand or right hand Acme thread on the, also handed, vertical links? The part number on the trunnions is 645627 & they have Stanpart on too. Is it possible to incorrectly build using the same v link and trunnion on both sides? Will the steering arm still go through the v link and fix properly?
The Haynes manual for the Spitfire (chapter 11 item 9 in respect of the front suspension) notes "if the stub axle must be separated from the carrier, a press will be required" and then "refitting is a reversal of removal". Does this mean that the stub axle has to be pressed into the stub axle carrier or will the tightening of the nut be adequate. I shall be using a new stub axle carrier (yes, it did break) and a new stub axle (no, it won't press out).
