I weighed the M this morning on a decent set of scales.

468kg (stripped of spare wheel, jack and tools)
484kg (with spare wheel, jack and tools)

We also did the corner weights - as below
Fronts 128kg (Both)
Rears 105kg / 107.5kg (Passenger Side / Driver Side)

I wondered if anyone else had done the same and would like to post, or at least it may be interesting for others!!

Fabric or metal body? Blower lists the 2 seater fabric car at 10 cwts, 14 lbs or 515 kg. But they don't say whether that is with fuel, water, and oil or not.

Amazingly close corner weights, was that with the Hartfords wound out and the doors open?!
Sounds like you need a 0.005" shim under the O.S front axle spring mount!
