Hi guys, where is the best place to find parts for the 340? Is there a decent online parts supplier?
Thanks
Tommy

Hi mate.
What parts do you need?
If you put a post in the demand section, someone is bound to be
able to help.
Cheers Mark.

It was more of a general enquiry. Are there any specialist parts suppliers out there?
Saab have a few, as do morris minors.

Born Built Beauties (http://www.Born-Built-Beauties.eu ) is one place.

Really, it depends on what parts you want.

Saab may have a few, but that's an entire marque. Morris Minors there's money in....

The simple answer is NO, apart from our own forum users doing a small number of items and possibly Skandix.

Is your Halfords any use?

We have Biltema and Motonet which are bit similar, altough Motonet has always been more of car parts store than anything else, but they have ventured to selling everything kind of shop during the years.

Motonet has most 300 series parts, here is parts listing that I took for my vario (which of course is non readable to most because of language, but try google translate for amusement value:
http://kauppa.motonet.fi/motonet/render ... &year=1981

Biltema has almost nothing, some brake shoes and rest are general parts.

On a Sunday, when they might have an air freshener to finish that vital job.. :lol:

In fairness your mileage may vary with them depending on what the local staff are like. A good local motor factors is worthwhile seeking out.
