Rear shackles and steering box lubricant
« on: June 11, 2012, 06:07:29 AM »
I am in the process of fitting new brass bushes. Could someone post a Photo of the shackles. The ones on mine appear to be wrong size. As in pin size to small. Are the pins the same size for eyes and shackles.

What oil should I use in the steering box? Is it a grease or oil.
Thanks Ian

Hi Ian,

for what its worth, I also prefer to use Penrite oils for our vintage cars. They are a bit more expensive, but I think well worth it.
As Tony advised they have a lot of knowledge as to what product best suits a particular application. I particularly like the engine oils they produce for Vintage and classic cars.
