Useful - I know its a pain in the a*se but do you think you'd be able to edit them so they read a bit clearer? Its just a bit too much of a jumble of characters and numbers to be a quick reference guide.

Nice one on posting it up though! ;D

I'll see what I can do.

Can we attach tables to posts? If not it may have to be an image of an excel spreadsheet...

Please feel free to use, it should print onto one page if you tell it to, a useful addendum to the Haynes?

Hi,

I'm building up a Blitz 2, and using metro front hubs for the front end. I bought them from a guy off ebay a couple of years ago who said they are the same as mini hubs (I now know different from reading this forum). Given that the handling characteristics of the buggy will be quite different from a front-engined mini, I'm planning on using them anyway (suggestions on ride height and damper settings welcome from anyone in the know)

Anyway - my on-topic question is what torque setting should I use for the sealed ball joint units that go with metro hubs?
I'd like to avoid shelling out for a Haynes manual just for this data, and googling doesn't help out much.

Many thanks, Scrim.

Send me a PM, I've a Haynes manual for Metro's at home, so I'll be able to look this up if I remember.

I tried to google the information you need but have no luck in finding the torque setting.I will still search for it and share it here if i found them.

Thanks - I tried googling extensively before posting and got nowhere!! I understand that they are the same as the mini, so that is what I used.

What torque should the rear subframe to bulkhead bolts be at, the 4 which go into the body of the mini.
THanks!

Hi,

I tried sending a PM to the original poster but to no avail. Does anyone have the source file for this so I can add NM to the values. All my torque wrenches are in NM.

Useful - I know its a having difficulties in the a*se but do you think you'd be able to modify them so they go through a bit clearer? Its just a bit too much of a jumble of figure kinds and data to be a quick manual guide.
