I’m about to fit a CC trunnion-less kit to my GT6 mk3 and I’m looking for some advice. Quick check tonight and it became apparent that the alignment of the bolt hole in the bottom pivot block is a few thou’ out to the hole in the lower wishbone. I’m happy to ream the parts but, is this what others have experienced?
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?
I bought my Herald from a dealer who specialises in Rovers & MGs, and prior to the sale they serviced it, including greasing the trunnions! Having just acquired a Wanner grease gun, I have pumped the trunnions full of EP90, forcing the grease out from around the seals. Is this good enough, or do I need to strip the trunnions down, clean them out and then re-install? The steering is considerably lighter post application of said EP90, which hopefully indicates that all is well, but still worried having read numerous Trunnion failure horror stories. Karl
