Hi all,

I have just acquired a mid 70s Mazda 1000. Does anybody know a source for suspension bushes? I need leaf spring bushes and maybe more bits and pieces. Brake discs, rubber gaitors, etc.

I've checked Ebay of course, and no bushes. Does the 1000 share its suspension with other models?

Thanks all,


Charlie

I think you'd know it as a Mazda 1300. FA3TS.

Thanks,


Charlie

The suspension bushes are the same as R100. There are nolathane R100 bush kits that come up on eBay from time to time. Only sway bar bushes may differ because you have the later model sway bar.
Note- R100 brake discs ARE larger but do fit.

Thanks all. Superpro are out of stock and wont make any more.

Rich, if you have any bushes that would be great.

Madaz, if that's right it's very useful info. I have seen the R100 bush kits so may order one.

Cheers,

Charlie

Someone I checked with today reckoned the R100 and Mazda 1000 bushes are different?

Can anybody help me out by letting me know where I can find a set of Mazda 1000 leafspring bushes? And if they are the same as any other Mazda.

I'll do more research...


Thanks,

Charlie

Mazda 1200/1300/R100 are identical at least in the front suspension I know from experience. I assumed 1000 would be the same.

But don't forget that his mazda 1000 is actually our equivalent mazda1300. So Charlie start looking for bush kits in Australia/NZ for mazda 1300. :tu:

according to the master R100 parts manual that lists piston parts as well for all variant models world wide the bushes should be the same as the r100/1200/1300 mazda hates to retool anything and if they can get away with using the same part across several lines they will.

oh yea one last quick note the R100 brakes are bigger but that is also why the R100s at least the coupe versions came with 14in rims because 13s wont fit on the front just barely

ahem.

Charlie - pall up with mazdaman. He knows his stuff and he is THE go to guy for FA3TS and FA3PS mazdas in the UK. Trust me

Madaz - sorry but you are wrong. FA models break down into two series, early and late. Some bushes are different between the two.

R100 brakes. HA! try finding a pair, especially in the UK.

Better brakes are found on Capellas, the whole upright is a bolt in fit whereas some R100s have a different strut bolting pattern on the bottom where they meet the ackerman arm. (more like a 1200 than a 1300).

Superpro will get you in whatever bush you need, its actually better to email them with the dimensions of what you need (ie OD and ID of the bush, the inner sleeve etc) and they will advise you and what you need, ie do you use Capella size bushes or STB 1300 size.

ps. go through Rich!

ewokracing - Did you not read what I said earlier?

I have swapped suspension parts between STA,STB and M10A in the past so have first hand experience.

As I said earlier the ONLY difference in bushes between series 1 and series 2 are all the sway bar bushes.

ALL the other front suspension bushes ARE the same.

If he needs a pair of strut assemblies from an R100 I can probably help I think I have a couple spares I am sure the calipers would need to be rebuilt the rotors turned and repacked but if you don't have them at all....

Hey Charlie, your 1000 (FA3) uses all the same rear spring bushes (large and small) as an R100

The front is a bit more complicated since none of the part numbers match up. This does not mean that they wont fit though :?

Inner TCA - 0866 34 460 for yours 0317 34 460 for R100 and STB
ARB to TCA - 0866 34 153 for yours and 0259 34 153 for R100 and STB
ARB front mount - 0259 34 156 for yours and 0820 34 156 for R100 and STB

As ewokracing correctly says the ARB to TCA bushes change for the FA3 from March 1974 on.

As you say mate STA and STB which you can see share the same part numbers . What about FA3 into the M10A?
