    Default R16 parts, help needed!

    Hello fellow Froggers

    I took my 1976 R16 in for a pre-RWC inspection today.

    I need to get a couple of things done and need some help sourcing parts...

    1) Engine mounts need replacing (anyone have a pic of what these look like?) I have some mounts amongst the parts given to me when I bought the car, but not sure what they are for!

    2) Sway arm rubbers are cracked and need replacing.


    Cheers!!

    Since you're in Melbourne, the first place I'd ring to buy them is Caravelle imports in Box Hill (assuming you don't find them in your box of spares); followed by French Connection. The latter could probably show you what they look like if you dropped in I suspect.

    Well, luckily I appear to hare some new engine mounts in amongst my spare parts!

    As for the sway arm bushes does anyone know of a source for these? Neither French Connection or Caravelle were able to come up with amything

    Is there a "universal" type of bushing that could be used? Or does anyone know the internal / external sizes?

    I'm not in the position to be able to look at it properly myself

    Cheers!

    Geert at the R16 shop in the Netherlands sells them for 20euro each plus post. There is also a urethane set that can be had from Fulcrum or supercheap
