Looking great. I have seen the silicone tube solution for the crap rubber seals a couple of times on here now, they seem to work well. Where did you get the pipe from?? If it was just spare pipe you had could you measure the internal and external diameter for us all plz.

Coming on nicely!!

 

;D

 

Thanks graham, Yeah I would have thought they'd be better in the long run. I got this stuff from eBay, didn't come with the logo on as well which was a bonus. It's 30mm ID and about 40mm OD (will check). I think 28mm would be better for the bush side (maybe the top arms too if they are that size but think they are the bigger size?) as the 30mm wasn't as tight as Liked it to be.

Hi all,

Does anyone know the internal diameter of these dust seals?? I am going to replace mine with silicone hose cut down so they last longer than the poor rubber ones.

Are the two types the same diameter ??

Thanks in advance

Graham

Funny how the ones manufactured 40 years ago are still going strong and the latest don't even last a year. Very infuriating and frustrating :goaway:

Yeah, someone posted a good while ago about this but can’t find it.

If someone has the arms off a measurement would also be perfect thanks.
