With the rear suspension going on a couple of weeks ago you’d expect reports of the Aston driving around by now. But I didn’t take the Watts linkage into account. The bolt won’t go in with the axle in place.
Turns out the assembly order is rear suspension first (including Watts linkages) then the differential, and then the brackets that hold the differential in. Maybe the answer is to split the differential from the differential rear carrier, fit the mounting brackets, then the carrier, then the differential. We’ll find out as Nigel’s car goes together.
Thanks Jacques for popping over to help with that.
