14/10/11 - Putting the Panhard back together..
The first job is to sort out the Panhard Rods.
First a new set of Panhard Rod Bushes, thanks to Dave from Bits4Vits I have these available through the BigJimny Store
Here is the bolt from the old bushes, surprisingly it looks ok once its cleaned up.
I ran an old wheel nut on and off to help clean it up further
The end of the Rod had taken a pounding before it fell apart. I had to tap it back to shape with a hammer.
Then its out with the press and in with the bushes.
Then I ran the bolt in and out and checked it tightened nicely to prove that the thread on the captive bolt is ok
Then it was a matter of aligning it all up and tightening up. I coated the bolts with Loctite Thread locker this time to prevent it shaking loose.
