I am wanting to give the Guzzler's rear springs a spruce up.
About 20 years ago I had them re-tempered and re-set with new rubber pads and clips and stuff.

The leaves have held their shape OK and all look to be intact, but there is a bit of surface rust and I'd like to clean and paint them and fit new rubber pads and clips.

My workshop manual says I will need these bits:
ACG5232 - pad for leaf end (24 required)
ACH5072 - clip for leaf (short) (8 required)
ACH5070 - pad for short clip (4 required)
ACH5043 - clip for leaf (long) (4 required)
ACH5042 - pad for long clip (4 required)

and 130136 - pad, spring seating (4 required)

I have spring bushes ACA5242 already and these are easy to get (a la Morris Minor and Oxford and others).

NZ Wolseley Car Club can supply ACG5232 but nothing else.
I suspect that the BMC part numbers have changed along the way and that other cars have used these bits, so can anyone help me to locate the correct bits, or bits that will work?

The leaves appear to be 40 or 41mm wide and there are 9 leaves in each spring.
