Heater motor

Not sure of the wedges were the same as proper Scimitars ( :wink: ) but mine was just a very tight push-fit with a spring-slip adding pressure. The shaft itself was plain. I think that the plastic hardens over time and locks the fan on the shaft. I pulled steadily but firmly on the centre hub and it...

Goldie the Coupe

I think Reliant tried hard to keep water out of their cars ...... and failed at every attempt. In seeking to prevent water ingress they just seemed to create new ways for it to get in. :) The floor-wells in my Coupe used to get soaked. I eventually found it was getting in through the rivets holding ...

Queensbury Road Garage

I wholeheartedly agree. John and Greta had a great attitude to customers when they established QRG and Nigel has maintained this. I just hope Nigel manages to maintain his enthusiasm if the plans for redevelopment of the current premises go ahead.

Roy, you've put in a lot of work there. You keep doing the jobs I've been putting off - shame on you! :lol: Araldited the copper drains into the bonnet shut reveal in the back corners I've been wondering whether these drains are really needed. The bonnet shut drops away to the front where any water ...

About the new black EFL90 FORD oil filter

I see there's someone selling Champ-brand (?) filters on eBay complete with a reproduction EFL90 label. They even come with instructions on how to put the sticker on to hide the original markings!

A bargain at only £8.70 inc. :shock:

About the new black EFL90 FORD oil filter

The last couple of years or so I have used an EFL90, latterly got from an ebay ad. (2324 9743 9457) 'sandicliffeshopuk'....price now £11.99incl. P&P - up from £7.52incl. when I bought it. I've fitted two - probably both from the same source & have not been happy: the cold/start-up psi. has been pre...

Do you need one set for each side or does one set do both?

Thanks

A
One set does both sides. :wink:

Coupe exhaust manifolds needed

Here's another option. I've just had lunch with Terry Cox and he reminded me that he took photos of my manifolds a few years ago and asked Double-S if they could make another set for him. They told him they that they no longer had the jigs to produce them but said they could provide the bent pipes f...

All of the above - in Tamworth :D
I'd second that. It seems the obvious choice.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Hi Chris. My point was that the chassis numbers aren't indicative of the model and it's the overlap details which would be of interest (to me, at least). :wink: Matt's division is absolutely correct according to Reliant. However, Reliant's list is incorrect when you relate it to the cars and this ca...

One off set of custom made manifolds is looking like £1100-1200 plus VAT!!! :shock: :shock:
Crikey, that's more than a complete stainless system including manifolds from Double-S! It will be interesting to see what ScimitarV6Coupe finds when he speaks to his local fabricator.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

I think half the problem lies in the apparent inaccuracy of Reliant chassis numbers. For example, my Coupe is chassis 400856 yet it is definitely an SE4b with the later interior mods despite Reliant stating this wasn't introduced until 400901. Very frustratingly, I've been told by a well-known Scimi...

£1,035.59 jeez I hope that includes VAT . That’s shocking ! Oops, just realised that's for a complete system - sorry. They don't actually give a price for Coupe manifolds alone but GTE ones are £480.46 so the Coupe ones shouldn't be too different. The part numbers for the Coupe manifolds themselves...

Coupe exhaust manifolds needed

Wow Jim, that's a mess. Here are my manifolds. They're Double-S bought from Don Pither when he sold-up. The collector has a ball-joint to prevent any stress on the manifolds themselves. Don told me he paid for the specific jig so they might be different to the V6 Coupe manifolds Double-S still list ...
