MGF rear brake upgrade

Happy Sunday all,

Back again and onto the next job. Shes currently fitted with tiny Rover 200 rear calipers using a Talon adapter plate on the Metro uprights/hub with 240mm discs. Therefore, it's suffering badly from very front bias braking as I've got 4-pots upfront on 305mm disc.

Any Libras?

Hello all, following me flogging my v6 Libra last year I've regretted it ever since....

On this basis I'm seriously considering another...obviously unlikely to find another V6 but will consider anything.

Does anybody have anything they are looking to part with?

Thanks in advance.





Libra rear suspension ball joints


Loving my recent purchase of a Libra, but sadly she needs new rear suspension ball joints and so thought I'd summarise what I've found out so far and wonder if anyone can identify the ball joint required nearest the hub?

So far then, using the attached photo of the original drawing: (Please do correct me if I'm wrong!)

Libra refurb/upgrade

Hopefully there's still some people lurking on here! Bit gutted to see how quiet the forum has become - Anyway..

Got this a few weeks ago and quite excited to be a Libra owner again, even if there will be a bit of cash and pain before I get to drive it Smile It's Steve Garlands old car, owned by Roger for a while but luckily for me he didn't have time to start it!

MK 1 Combined Suspension Brackets Wanted


Hi all,

I'm after a set of bulkhead brackets for the Mk 1 (balljoint) type rear suspension arms if anyone has some unused ones stuck in the garage.    

I need the 4 bracket type that combined the upper and lower mount in one piece.

Please let me know if you have some brackets you're willing to sell.



Libra or Spyder

Thinking I might like another libra or maybe a Spyder, just wondered if anyone was thinking of selling up in the not too distant future.
