Hi fellas.

I posted this in 'technical' but despite 120 views, didn't get any replies. I need to know which squab frame I need for my 12/64 build s. I seem to remember it was 4pin locating one with foam not horse hair,but not sure! I even managed to befuddle Nick(R)!
PLEASE PLEASE. has anyone knowledge or an AKD with the description i.e foam,horse hair,3or4'uprights',4pins,or2pins with 2 self tappers.
Really urgent now + does anyone want to part with one?
Regards Ray

Ray,

Just checked my March 65 Morris S rear squab and it is horsehair with two rods at the bottom and threaded studs at the top to fix on to the panel shelf. They look to be the same thread as the door lock catch threaded screws.

I'm going over to my usual parts source in a week or so and could see if he has an early frame there.

Hope that helps :)

I'll check re uprights later on ;)

Ray ,definitely horsehair with the four rods as per the previous picture.
A friend of mine took a later style and added the other steel rods...he looked for months and couldn't find the earlier type. So, if you can find a later one...it can be modified to accommodate the horsehair.
It just steel rod welded on top of each other.
The original frames seem to be in short supply....
Maybe Mark could modify a few of the later ones...just a thought.

Just dug one out of my lockup Ray, has a green cover but otherwise perfect for you.

Great news that Steve has one Ray....as you have seen...there are few different frames...
So, this is from my cooper AKD book
24A1413 from 101 to 55373...that must be the early wire frame...wire down thru the parcel shelf
24A2147 55373 to 65014 Think this is the frame with the srew down through the parcel shelf.
24A 65015 on...this is when the foam backing started
Hope this helps.
Cheers
D
