Re: Machining of trigo wheels - Machine Shop recommendations?

Thanks Paul.
I got out the trigo adaptor and the rear wheel last night from its original box.
Hub/wheel tapered surfaces definitely do not touch.

Spinners?

I have seen spinners made from alloy, which seems to be the most common, bronze, and i think...brass that I have seen on several AC MkIVs. I rather like the look of what i think are the brass variety. I already have standard alloy spinners. Any pros/cons of these other materials, and anyone know who...

Re: Machining of trigo wheels - Machine Shop recommendations?

Thanks for the replies. Yes they are pin drive wheels. The new hub (see link in OP) is the key - this brings everything inboard by the required amount, and so avoids a taper-clash. There is plenty of 'meat' on the back face of a trigo wheel that can be machined off, and that should be all that is ne...

Machining of trigo wheels - Machine Shop recommendations?

I need to have a few mm skimmed off the back of my trigo front wheels so i can then fit these knock-ons to my crendon (without fitment resulting in the front wheels sticking out and looking ridiculous). Does anyone know of a reputable machine shop i can trust the work to either near pulborough/petwo...

Re: Carcoon Standing Up Well - some questions....

Very interested in this thread, having popped in to my damp and slightly leaky concrete garage to find every surface covered in moisture yesterday. The ignition box was actually dripping. Ultimately needs levelling and starting again, but its a low priority atm. I am still pre-IVA (although getting ...
