I am rebuilding the Andre Telecontrol rear shock absorbers that came in a box with my car 41 years ago.   They have never been fitted properly to this car insofar as I know and I would like to know where to put the pressure pump, pressure gauge and reservoir.  If anyone has these as an original fitting,  please can you post some photos?  The fitting of the shocks themselves is no problem as there are suitable holes and bits to do it.  I did once have them fitted but without the pressure adjustment.

Hi David,
This is how they are fitted to my car. I've seen a few others with the reservoir mounted in a similar spot under the bonnet. I've also got a copy of the instruction manual here:

Hope this helps.

Thanks very much, this explains the bracket I have also.  I have taken the liberty of posting your pictures in the technical information thread.

Thinly spread the biscuits with Best British Dripping.  Re assemble and pressurize to taste.  Go for a test drive down your local rural roads and experience a new creamy smoothness.  I've got it right at last after only 42 years!

Once you have walked away from the car and darkness falls, mice and all sorts of wee beasties will be trying to get at your dripping !!!!

So pleased to hear that you have it all sorted and after only 42 years, seems I have just 1 more year before the Gussie must be finished to keep pace with you !!!!
