Hi Michael,
                 I believe the bushes that were used were originally from the engine stabiliser on a Mk2/Mk10 Jaguar car.
Regards,
               Eddie.

Yes, they have part no. C 10940.

But how are the "socket balls" ( item 42/ Plate 20) fixed in the links?

What is the way to get them out?

With the pivot bolts removed, the balls can be turned on their sides and removed through the slot on one side of the link.

How much clearence is normal for the socket balls in the connecting links?

I found out on the second bike (MK5) is also around 0.5mm clearence.

Is that normal or too much?

I think I have to destroy the housing in the links for change to rubber bushes. And that is non reversible!
