Ultima rere front bulkhead

Post by jasmar10 »

Can anyone tell me if the front bulkhead from a ReRe Ultima will work on a vintage Turbo Ultima? I just acquired the Turbo knowing it would need some parts thrown at it, the bulkhead being one of those parts. I thought I had a spare but after digging it out, the spare is broken in the exact same spot as the other.

There was talk about it being slightly wider at the hinge pins but as far as mounting it will bolt right up no problem.

Thanks. I am going to give it a try. If it doesn't work looks like there are some original ones available on Ebay. Now just need to determine if OTW-12's are suitable for steering tie rods on a Turbo Ultima so I can place my parts order.

Otw-12 is 40mm
The turbo ultima pro manual says 50mm turnbuckle.
The pro and the turbo share the same length arms and components so I trust it to be the same. I’d aim for a 50mm

Sorry for joining late here. The re-re front bulkhead works fine. It does widen the front track by about 3mm...I think. They added more "meat" around the screw holes. That's where the OG one cracked all the time. I would not use an OG part if you plan on running the car. Old plastics get brittle.

Thanks. Been dragging my feet on ordering parts but finally ordered them tonight. My problem is that I keep scouring E*bay for parts to repair all the junkers I already have and end up buying what amount to parts cars and then can't make myself use them for parts and instead have to start the search for parts again. The eventual goal is to get a few running but I sort of enjoy just having them as shelfers even if they are not shelf queen quality. The goal was to take my A&L converted Ultima (trailing arm chassis/lethal weapon trans) back to the way it was in 1987/1988 when I first built from the box but now I find myself working on a Turbo Ultima instead that was just too good to use as parts for my original car.
