Autokraft Mk IV
« on: September 03, 2018, 01:05:21 PM »
I am the original owner of a 1989 Autokraft Mk IV (#1297).  It has very low miles (1260!), but it also has a leaking wheel seal on the rear axle.   The brake pads are damaged.  Does a service manual exist?  Does anyone have one?  Does anyone know the specs for replacing the seals and brakes pads?   Any help or advice is appreciated.   Dan

Thanks for the detailed information (and the new contact).   My tech will be a very happy guy.   Neither of us realized the vast array of manufacturers for these components.  Thanks again.  Dan

I also own an AC MKIV. Post your concerns on the AC Owners forum for information. Cobra Restorers (cobrarestorers.com) in Kennesaw Georgia can make any repairs or service.
