I finally got round to fitting the 2nd dogbone bush to the Carly today (did the Scaero months ago).

Note the use of spare Saab parts (old brake discs, aero alloys and 14lb sledge, and 2*2 planed).

Only bug bear as per normal is that the Lambda wiring passes through a hole in this bracket so you have to delve under the false bulkhead to disconnect it.

Hmm, I cut my old rubber ones out and then cut the new ones in half to fit in. 15k miles later and they're still fine (spot the bodger)

I was going to cut mine in 2 also but as they were out of the car pressed them in with a big vice.

Spot the broken lug on the alternator bracket...mines the same...design fault??

They should really make the lower lug shorter.

I broke this today with the tyre lever to move the alternator back to get to the lower bolts.

The one on the Scaero was the same, and the 2nd hand replace Scaero one (as the whole top eye had sheared on that) was broken too.

I don't think it makes a blind bit of difference to the running of the car as it's a swival point.

I didn't think anyone would notice...

Not in mine, it doesn't. Then again, it's been replaced a couple of times so who can tell where it went originally...

And very ingenious set-up for pressing it in. I, rather unimaginatively, just used a vice


A Workmate-type gadget also works well if you tilt the two surfaces up at 90 degrees so you have two large flat surfaces facing each other.

Unfortunatly my vice would quite open out enough, and I couldn't find a bolt long enough to make a puller to pull it it.

It poped in really easilay like this, very litytle load.

The wheel was a scrapper (oval aero) that I straightened in a similar manner several years ago with full sucess (left jacked for 2 weeks and eased it back into shape).

It's round and does not need any additional weights to balance.
