I know they are as scarce as hens' dentures, but does anyone have/know where I can buy a pair of these? Mick Dolphin doesn't have them listed any more and I've checked the websites for ANG, MEV, Fitchetts, Rimmers. Thanks

Fitchetts website is notoriously bad, most of their stock isn't on it! Best to give them a ring and quote a part number.

If they are standard lip seals then measure them up and order them from a seal supplier

Indeed - Fitchett had the illusive seals and some other hard-to-come-by rear suspension bushes and subframe rubbers, none of which was on their website. Happy chappy (for a price!!!). So it's costing a bit, but it's only once in it's 53 year life...

The seals will have an identifying number on them, just like bearings do. It might be handy to make a note of that number when they arrive.....
