Thanks Koen, that's the problem. I can get the seals (Omicron have them for more than 25 each) but the bores are difficult as you say.

I even bought a new, remanufactured unit from another well known , reputable source, but that failed quite spectacularly (!), so I am looking at another route

If you have any old scored units, do keep them because we may yet have a solution !

Ok Simon,

It's true that not all remanufactured parts are of good quality....
Plenty of old stuff here!

Sort of Appia furgoncino/camioncino but Aurelia as well .....

Last year I bought a car roller for turning cars on their side, but non of the kits would fit my Appias so I had another hub mounting plate made. As the commercial Appias have the same wheel centres as Aurelias it works on these cars as well - as witnessed below

The only thing about using it on the Aurelia is that you need to remove the drive shaft and one mounting bolt which otherwise touches the plate

2 of us easily tipped the car on its side - another 2 making sure it didn't touch the wall !

The underside is now much easier to scrape and paint

This always ~looks~ so wrong, for all I know everything is strong enough and those loads are the same as cornering.  I think it was Frank Costin who said the engineers prayer is "to save me from the saying that what looks right is right".
