Default Arnolt Bristol Suspension

Hello all,
I am still working on 3052 and looking for suspension parts. Ball joints and rear suspension bushings. Does anyone have any idea where to find such things or what might fit from another car?
Thanks in advance!

Could you be more specific about what parts you need. Do you have a spares handbook or manual to work from? If it is N501201 for the bush then these are usually remade by a machine shop to suit the cleaned up suspension arm N500111 which is usually scored. Oil seals are installed in the remanufactured part.

Part numbers! I love it!
I have a book. Give me a bit of time and I'll come up with a list of what I need. Thanks!

I have found suitable replacements for the rear control arm bushings, but I am looking for some other parts now.
I need to rebuild the fuel and water pumps. My pumps are in pretty good condition, but I would like to replace the soft parts and spinning parts.
Any help on the following?
N370470 fuel pump diaphragm
N370500 fuel bowl gasket
N350780 thermostat
N350630 thermostat gasket
N350250 water pump gasket
N350240 " " "
N350710 water pump shaft and bearings
N350690 thrower
N350410 Oil seal
The diaphragm and water pump seals and bearings I need for sure, the rest I should be able to make.
Thanks for your help!

I'm going to need an engine gasket set and carb kits eventually too. Any ideas on where to find that stuff?

In Racing in Nottingham have everything from a new engine to a gasket for all the 6 cylinder Bristols or the BODA club has cheaper sources for some bits and bobs.

Nigel, you probably should replace the head studs and nuts. Spencer Lane-Jones can supply them, the gasket and other parts. You might have to punch another hole in the gasket so check carefully before assembly.
