  • Julian, good info on the Trophy spheres but they are probably even harder to get than the others

  • Nice one!
    Will a standard compressor blow nozzle do or do I need a proper coupling to the sphere port ?
    Likewise, will a domestic vacuum suffice with some tape etc to secure the cone as you said?
    Just wondering how much force is needed.

  • Sorry for the delay in replying.
    Heretic?? Probably! They certainly do corner flat.
    I removed the sphere and noticed some congealed antifreeze and dampness. So now need to source a decent one. Are the front ones easily modified to fit the rear? They seem to be easier to find.
    I also noticed excess play in the knuckle joint and bought a new Lucas one, which was £££. To my surprise the new one had almost as much lateral play as the old joint! Is this normal?
    Noticed the pipe join from the rear sphere to the mid section very corroded too, so would like to replace.
    Has anyone on here got a sphere and pipe for sale please?

  • Julian,
    There is no hard standing at my home , I ll put some dry cardboard underneath to see if I can locate a drip. Each time I pump it to circa 450lbs and when it sags it drops to around 200.
    Thanks for the heads up on the tightening of the unions.
    I 'll persevere and thanks again to you all.

  • Minimax, thanks for the swift reply.
    I thought Id ask as Im no expert on these and thought there might be something I'm overlooking that I did nt know about.
    The fluid/pressure is obviously going somewhere and as it has been pumped several times, it must be leaking outside the circuit.
    Pity they did nt use coil springs and wishbones...

  • Alfiedog created a new forum post in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Hi,

    My MGF has started to lose pressure and sag on its drivers side.
    I have pumped to up to spec several times but after a few days it drops.
    I have checked for leaks and try as I might , I cannot find any. I have checked all unions for tightness also the schrader.
    Odd thing is , it seems more affected by time than use , as I recently completed a 300+ mile drive without much of a drop.
    I have pumped it up around 5 times so far so I expect that if the suspension unit diaphragms are damaged the upper chamber would now have been well filled.
    I'd really appreciate any useful info on this.

    Kindest regards.
