These adapters allow the re-gassing of the hydragas sphere fitted to several cars from MG/Rover including the MGF.
Re-gassing does not return the car's suspension to a "as new" condition as the servicing of the internal valves is not possible nor does it take any account the condition of the other components in the suspension such as the knuckle joints,pivot arm bearings or the shock absorbers, so consider this as a temporary repair as the majority of hydragas spheres are past their intended service life.
These adapters allow the fitting of the high pressure nipples (not supplied) and need TIG welding into the top of the hydragas sphere.
The high pressure 1/8" BSP valves are readily available from Ebay.
A set of 4 adapters are £30 plus vat. Shipping UK is £5 EU is £9
I also have a limited number of the mechanical fixing type using a riv-nut.
These require a heavy duty set of riv-nut pliers as the riv-nuts are a high tensile steel variety. The kit comprises of 4 stainless steel adapters that screw into the riv-nuts. These are supplied with O rings to seal them but also require PTFE tape (not supplied) to seal the threads. The high pressure valves are not supplied.
Please note these require a certain degree of mechanical skills to enable them to be fitted sucessfully and remain gas tight and the gas has to be inserted at 14bar, this is a high pressure so safety precautions have to be adhered to.
