I finally got round to removing the rubber bushes on the steering in the weekend.I think it may explain the steering judder..... Roll Eyes One of the silent blocks is so deformed I at first though the it was intentionally assymetric so to allow steering set up and then realised this made no sense...photos tell the story I think.The rubber has become so mobile over the years you can mould it like hard putty.

Yes, they're deformed all right. Just like the ones on my Augusta when I bought it. New ones are available from Cavalito and would possibly be better than the replacements I got from a British manufacturer, which are harder rubber than the originals.

By the way, how do you know the steering juddered? Was it doing so when you towed the car? From one of the earlier photos, I seem to remember that your track rod is badly bent, which would cause severe toe-in and make the steering heavy.

Au contraire ...my car has not yet "failed to proceed"

the aprilia has always made it under it's own power (180 miles on 2 cylinders when I picked it up).And I think you must be confusing mine with a lesser example, no bent track rods in the immediate vicinity? You may recall a couple of years ago(after sampling my expresso) that I took you for a short spin around the block with Andrew- no tow car in sight on that occasion Grin

New items are winging their way from Cavalitto.15 euro/bearing which is not unreasonable.

Line up the headlights and check a slight blow between two exhaust sections and I'm of to the MOT in the next couple of weeks... Smiley

Apologies, I thought we were referring to someone else's car, which I had seen a photo of. I well remember your's as being an extremely fine example. I hope it's still going as well. And I didn't know you were Scarpia!
