Front or back ones Dick?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371033272993? ... EBIDX%3AIT

Those are the front ones, something odd about the left/right thing on them so you'd need to speak to Ron at Best of British (the seller) but also if you phone up rather than buying over ebay, you can probably negotiate a discount for buying a pair. :wink: :wink:

I had to drill, burn and grind the old ones out of the brackets on mine, i then sanded the hole a smidge oversize and mirror polished it and packed Vaseline round the outside of the sensor to prevent further corrosion of the bracket which is the main cause of failure as the aluminium oxide crystals grow and crush it! :shock:

The back ones are the same as Volvo 7/9xx front ones or indeed Mk3 Cavalier (and possibly others) but obviously they use different plugs so you may have to cut'n'shut a plug if buying a sensor for one of those. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Not yet, Dave, but Ron is very helpful, and a good source of spares...are you going to the 1st April meet? And on 2nd April, there is a show at Old Warden...
Best wishes,
Dick

At the British Queen you mean Dick? That's certainly the plan at the moment, hopefully in the Sterling with the other confusing set of wheels! :shock: :lol:

The first (non-sponsored) result i got was this Dick :

http://www.shuttleworth.org/events/classicrally/

Is that the one?

I had about 6-10 results before that, all sponsored by some search engine or commercial interest! :roll:
Cheers,
Dave
