Busy week on tiki heads and dealing with hurricane prep.
These have been sealed and painted. A little off topic but
Just life.

Stay safe, dakazman. Irma is going to be one nasty bitch! At least she's weakened a little. Where in Florida do you live?

They look great!
I was wondering if Styrofoam. Family business was florist & greenhouses, so where I grew up. Always carving something out of it. Styrofoam is a good medium to work in.

After waiting a week or so I received the wrong inner bearings for the front hubs.
Does anyone have the correct part number ?

I think it's this:

Inner bearing race 07100S
Inner bearing journal 07210X
Outer bearing race 03062
Outer bearing journal 03162

Triumph Herald and Spitfire 1959-1974

I hope you're ok after Irma.

Regards,

Pete

Don't know if you have this, a Golden Gate Lotus
parts cross reference. It may help sometime.

Thanks guys,

Yes neighbors and I all fine but a lot of cleanup.

Purchased two inner bearings off eBay and both no good.
Beck at key 0513843 to small and master pro pta-13 to large. So suspension work moving slowly which gives me more time to fiberglass wheelwell inserts in for the close out panels.

Also received my 821 engine gasket set today so will be getting block crank liners to machinist.

There not much left for the next one to take down.
Raining again , just when it looked like we were going to dry out.
Not like flooding but mosquitoes are going to be killer..

Thanks JB and Bodzer, received two sets of bearing kits , complete with dust seal and grease.
And they fit😄. Usually I would get the numbers off the old installed bearings but they spun and ground off all ID.

   Completed all fiberglass repairs in wheel wells . Pictures to come.

Be careful of the aftermarket felt dust seals.  They are often too thick and don't allow the bearings to seat.  All the felt does is hold grease to prevent dust from getting in.  I usually just reuse the old felt (well greased).

I got a bearing set from a reputable supplier and found one on the bearings was the wrong size. I was reading the Dave Bean catalogue and they have a Nylos seal set.  Perhaps they are still in a state of flux after Dave's recent passing. Good luck.
