Coupe chassis or drawings

Having a V5C and MoT, and a vehicle that complies with the DVLA rules on identity are not the same thing. The key is in the wording - something like: "A new replacement chassis supplied by the manufacturer" That was a few iterations ago. :wink: The current wording is " the same pattern as the origi...

Coupe chassis or drawings

If it's intended for road use be careful, the chassis carries the identity of the car so if it has been off the road for a long time you might find it impossible to register. Caution is required but it's a real :w ! If alfablack has a V5C registered with the DVLA then I don't think it will be a pro...

Coupe chassis or drawings

Iain Daniels built me a new chassis from scratch a while ago so it's worth giving him a ring. Mind you, when I spoke to him at Prescott recently he said he probably wouldn't make any more as they'd be too expensive. He might be able to help with some drawings and dimensions though. 😉

SE4 Coupe 4 Pots

I must question whether you actually need to update the brakes. The Coupe is quite a bit lighter than the 6b and I've always found the 3-pot brakes to be perfectly adequate and, more importantly, well balanced F-R. :wink:

Joe's 1972 GTE - Wiring loom Repair

To operate the new heated screens I have altered the existing heated rear window switch. Instead of a simple rocker that was either on / off the aim was to modify it to a momentary type doing: front /off / rear. This sounds horrifically complicated but is actually a fairly easy job! I started by so...

Igntion relay?

A complete wiring diagram for the SE6 can be found HERE . I can't see any markings on the top relay but, if you can find some, the following might help. The bottom relay pin-out can definitely be identified. What they're used for is difficult to say without seeing the wiring. :) Lucas relay pin-out....

Lockheed clutch master cylinder operation

I suspect the seals are gone. As you already have the cylinder off it's an easy job to clean it thoroughly, including all the bores and drillings, and fit new seals. Ideally use a honing tool on the main bore as this must be perfectly concentric without any longitudinal scoring. EDIT: Andy's post go...

SE5 (Granada engined)..slight oil leak & air filter anomaly!

On air filters, I bought a box of spares from an ex-owner some years ago which included an air filter which appeared to be right but in actuality, was just a bit too tall. I fitted a KN filter to the original filter housing on my Coupe and found I needed to remove the original rubber seals as other...
