Moog idler arm from Derek th: arrived yesterday. I painted it black cause you got it original without any colour. Very easy fixing so you have a puller. My mazda idler arm is like new no play in the bearing comparability with the moog idler arm would be correct so.

Different is not very much. I can feel a very little more stiffness. I would say the moog idler arm is only for LHD Rx7 interesting if you have problems with the road race header or turbo.
RHD Rx7FB does not need it, cause the arm is mounted on the cooler side of the engine room so no heat-proof necessary.

Have you looked after the little rubber Derek?

Thomas I have been on holiday, sorry.

I really don't think I have any of these, I need to find many similar items for my car build, so if I find any I will let you know where you can get them.

Thomas,

This looks very similar ?

RX8 Fuel Flap Bump stop, I doubt Mazda designed different ones for different models ?
