[quote="Brad"][quote="Smiley"]Hey people.

I've just bought one of your Delrin rear bushing kits. (http://www.meyersmanx.com.au/DELRIN-BUS ... -P126.aspx)

Going to fit them to the vehicle very soon, just wondering if they need any lube on them? And if so what kind??

Cheers.

Just use some grease when fitting, make sure your sleeves are clean and wack them in. Delrin is sort of self lubricating[/quote]

No worries. Thanks for the reply. They'll be in as soon as the arms are rebuilt :D

Brad, quick question for you as I believe you are rapidly throwing together a buggy for the Fraser trip. Where are you sourcing your cables (handbrake, clutch, speedo)? I have been asking around a couple of places and apart from some blank looks I've received no helpful advice. Is MMA going to stock these, or are they manufactured as a one off each time? If anyone else is chasing a "set" of these items is there a possibility of a bulk order being put in??

Yes. That is exactly what we're talking about. I'm very pleased with the quality and fit of the kit.

Cool. I just want new ones because mine are as squeaky as anything. They are original rubber ones so I thought they would be ok but there not. I am hoping these ones will be quiet.

Hi Dave,

My cables will be coming from MMA :)

We do cable shortening kits which allow yo uto just use stock cables and shorten them to suit the Manx Length. Dow the track we will be carrying custom length cables to suit but for now we have found the shortening kits work well and suit our needs.

The cable shortening kits are $33 and include the fittings for clutch cable, h/brake and accel cables.

If they are not up yet I will get Ben to add them tonight.

Delrin will not squeak. Well it shouldn't and it never has on me. The rubber ones are usually fine if you keep them well greased and the urethane ones ... well they squeak no matter how much grease you use IMO

Gday Ben and Brad, just a few questions, do you think the lift kits will arrive by the time the kits arrive? Eg for freighting all together? Who are the best guys to get 181 spindles off? Would prefer to get some from a reputable supplier rather than a unknown source from the states/uk etc.. What is the go with tyre sizes for the buggies? All the engineers wont pass anything over one inch above stock diameter, Although all I seen on the buggies at the recent sydney show was anything up to 33s! Just a case of run them at your own risk after inspection time? Cheers for all your help guys.
It will all be ok in the end.. if is not ok its not the end!
