I just found one instruments facia with all the clocks and gauges in Italy for 60 Euros with chrome rings dials, by the way, which is the square light on the right lower corner?
Mine don´t have, it maybe seat belts warning light?

Regards, Raul.
Yeah have this on my watch list as well after it got down to 60 quids when nobody bought it for 100 the first time. The square light is the seat belt warning which I saw on all LHD Sprints so far. Wondering why yours don't have it. Is yours a Spanish delivered Sprint? If you are eager of buying it please let me know and I won't bid as I have one complete spare from France already.

See the first post on page 1 of this thread, it contains two lists. The first is a list of those items that are becoming rare and should be always be saved. The second list is those items that can be refurbished by the club for resale. Both lists are updated as needed so that you only need refer to that first post to see the current, up to date list.

Is that what you are asking?

A *new* sprint load sensing valve would not be very hard to find, since the Hyundai H100 van uses exactly the same item... they took a license on it from Girling.

I believe the handbrake warning light switch is NLA so it is well worth keeping if you are stripping a car.

Get them through the club, then send your old ones back in the same box. Sorted 8)

Single circuit brake master cylinders are still available for under £20 if you opt for the Vauxhall Victor part (same, ¾" Girling CV), or, as I discovered only yesterday by comparison in one of those "hang about, that looks familiar..." moments, a Volvo 340 one for a LHD car is exactly the same as the dual-circuit Dolomite part, or fit a RHD one and attach the pipes at the other side of the barrel. Those are currently around £24 from several online Volvo parts people. Pre-'85 for imperial female unions, or make pipes with a metric union at the cylinder end and use a post-'85 one. 8)
Here's an image of one, note the brand name on the box:

So old ones could be donated as core units, to be reconditioned for people who won't buy parts unless they state "Dolomite" on the box and cost four times as much. :wink:

I expect to find more bits of the little Dutch car that can be recycled in a similar way. :lol:

I'm surprised you have front screens, I've sold 6 and used 1 myself since I made this list. Rear screens, only one has moved. Everything other than the glass I'll give home to in 6 weeks if you can hang on and no one else wants 'em.

Hi guys
After 20 years of continuous small saloon ownership I have reched the decision that paying £80 a month (2 rented lockup garages) to store used parts from cars is a false economy. Therefore I am looking for new homes for a lot of my stock. We still run Dolomites so will be keeping some bits especially the bits made from pure unobtainium! I just cannot see I will need 7 car sets of any of the bits. ( We only ever sent bare shells that were beyond economic repair to the scrappy!)
So any of you guys who have land and buildings you own want to become the custodians for lots of core give me a shout and tell me what you are willing to look after? Some of the stuff will be free and some will merit a donation.
Some of the bits do actually have a value and I need to get some money back after paying to store it all these years, these bits will hit eBay, am I allowed to, required to, definitely not allowed to ( delete as needed) mention on here when they are listed. Hoping someone will want to save these bits.

I presume it's worth me checking for these parts on that dolomite at the local scrappers then?

I'll nip down tomorrow and see.

Great information. It might be worth having a 'shared parts' thread so that people can find alternatives to harder to source items (or even easy to source items)
