iirc the wheels fell off early Allegro's because when wheel hubs were removed at the garage, on re-fit they were torque-ing up the hub nut too tightly, the same as the 1100/1300's. On the Allegros the hub nut was just to be tightened 'hand-tight' before final adjustment. This was a big press story in the past.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
