Five 6x14 12mm offset Cobra Supaslot wheels inc. stainless bolts.

Hi Dave.

Yes, they'd fit straight onto your SE5A. The Coupe has the same setup and they fitted perfectly.

I'm near Cheltenham so it's a fair haul unless you fancy a weekend break or there is a good Scimaritan going in the opposite direction. :wink:

David.

Rebuilt 2-rail gearbox and OD. - NOW SOLD.

I had this gearbox rebuilt a few years ago when I first started my Coupe rebuild but have since fitted a BW T5. I had been hanging onto it just in case I didn't get on with the T5 but time has come to move it on. Both gearbox and overdrive have been completely rebuilt and the linkage has been re-bus...

Five 6x14 12mm offset Cobra Supaslot wheels - SOLD

These were on my Coupe before it's rebuild and I was going to refit them after the rebuild. However, I have now got hold of some wheels with a more suitable offset for the 4HA axle I've fitted so these are now surplus. They have been cleaned and the inner well and rear is painted. I gave one a quick...

I lifted this photo link from a post by David Tew in “Speedys SSG paint thread” (hopefully he doesn’t mind)
Not at all, all the credit goes to Jeff Craske. :)

Simon's SE5 Restoration

You're probably well aware but in the first photo of the engine on the stand the sump shown is the wrong one for the engine. The block you have is rear-well and the dipstick should be in a push-in tube on side of the block - you can see the drilling for it. The sump shown is a front-well and needs a...

Coupe/ SAAB/ SE5 thing...

Fascinating project, well done so far! The SAAB engine is a great choice. I had a SAAB 9-5 Aero HOT with the B235R engine, 250BHP as standard and absolute reliability. They can be prone to sludge in the sump but it's easily checked. Is yours a B204 or B234? Red top suggests Trionic-5. They're the st...

Had to do that on my 7HA already - it's off an Aston Martin :lol:
That certainly beats having a 4HA from a Thwaite dumper truck! :lol:

Wide Coupé

Darryl, that looks like an interesting project, I look forward to the progress reports.
My Coupe has GTE front suspension and 4HA Powerlock axle. I didn't need to make any body changes at the front but at the rear I used GTE flairs. With careful choice of wheel offset it all fits under perfectly. :)

Spegru SE6a

I think the packing plate was introduced if the fulcrum needed shimming out a lot My Coupe's original chassis had three plates one side and two the other but no shims! It was either a Friday afternoon chassis or Billy Bodger had got to it. I haven't set up the new chassis yet so it will be interest...

For those denied the pleasure of owning a Reliant

Interesting but it doesn't look much like any Reliant Scimitar I've seen. A little like a Sabre if you screw up your eyes and turn the lights out. perhaps! :roll:

They did get the bit about "the pleasure of owning a Reliant" right at least. :)
