A often problem in our Murena's (and other Talbots) is play on the knucklehead near the steering rack.
The slightest play and MOT is a No.


This is a expencive part at the dealers and I was looking for a while to replace the inner U-joint.
Some time ago I bought this at E-bay for a good price.

U-126 made by GKN GKN.

Bearings bush is 16mm and total cross size 40mm


After some measurements it looks good to replace teh old ones.





Mounting is not difficult.










Still thinking how to secure it.
bolt or weld a little plate?

Found a interesting document how to line the knuckle-joints

I do not know if there is enough space to do this, but maybe you can make some punch mark by a center punch around the bearing. It could safety the bearing similarly to the attached photo.

This is NOT advertisement for a website.

I had trouble finding parts for my Bagheera or just verifying parts no. from different suppliers. So I found these two databases. They have specific parts BUT they also list the name and parts no from different suppliers and on which cars they will fit.

http://www.kakapart.com
http://www.yoyopart.com/

No; its it not a straight forward as "need-front-boing-boing-spring-part-for-french-car" but if you have one manufacturer name and part no., you can find the same part from other manufactures and which cars it also will fit.

Anyway, it found it helpfull when scavenging for parts since its easier to find parts for a Peugoet 205 than a Bagheera.

Happy hunting Smiley

Finding parts this way can be usefull but I have experienced that the info is not always right.
There are som part manufacturers that provided the wrong info in there docs.
That happened with brake pads but also with ball-joints and other stuff as I learned the hard way.
Sometimes I find more then 10 replacements for a part and If I verify it with the part bibles I have, several mistake parts are found.

My 1.6 Bosch distributor had some problems after more then 250.000 miles.
The axle had to much play and therefore the cap had no long lifespan.
The bushes/bearings had to much wear.
Th cap moved sometimes when the engine was running.


De axle was in acceptable state, not much wear.


The iron bushes were end of life.


Measured the axle.


Removed bushes.
Not much force needed.


Inner diameter.


Ofcourse if you have the tools you can make the bushes yourself but I found a ready solution.
This are sintered bearings.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=391543914572#ht_500wt_1414



Bushes and distributor for some hours in the freezer and mounting was simple.



Some molykote on the bushes (Forheps not needed because engine oil reach the axle but to be sure).



New rotor original type.


For sale here.

New cap from Saab 900.



Builded.


Easy solution for Bosch ditributors from 1.6 and other Talbots that use this kind of dizzy.
1000 miles tested till now.

Hi!
Just found that the temperature gauge sender located at the thermostat housing has stopped working on my 2,2.  I can get a new one from Simon, but I am in a bit of a hurry.
Is this item used on other, more common cars?
Have an appointment with the norwegian "biltilsynet" in less than a week. Would hate to wait one more month.

hi,

i used my 3D printer to create alternative parts for the Murena. So far there are gear sets for door mirrors, rear hood hinge caps, lock plate, mirror adjustment knobs and more to come. Some parts can be printed in a range of colors including glow in the dark, wood, fluor, etc

Fantastic..........I had a look at doing this but the printer was too expensive and not sure I'd be up to the job!!!! Was thinking about switches....in comparison does it work out cheaper? you could be onto a winner.  Grin

Hi Richard, just going by what owners asked me if I...(when I was breaking one) had, switch bodies, interior light, ashtry, mirror surrounds air vents...and when you've had a lot of practice,,,, would it be possible to do the rear/front lenses? that would need some serious programming. How big is your printer? is it difficult to use the scanner?

Printer build space is 20x20x20. Scanning is something i am still working on. Lenses ? Lamp cover do you mean ? i thinks thats going to be difficult indicators might be possible. On of the things to remember is that the parts are build layer by layer so sometimes parts might need finishing. Interior parts should have better finish than mechanical.  I try one of the parts you mensioned. Printer usage and autocad are not difficult just take youre time to learn and be creative
