Are you sure the shocks are correct for SE6? The photo top bushing looks wrong.
Presume it's a library photo like shock manufacturers tend to show

Running out of fuel with half a tank

Just a thought to toss into the ring, it's not a foam filled tank by any chance is it?
Only thing I'd do is drain the lot to empty then fill to get true capacity before going any further, you may be chasing a non existent issue

Running out of fuel with half a tank

Curiously the pump ticks rapidly when it runs out. Could that happen with a vacuum in the tank? I'd have thought it would tick as normal as it would still be trying to pump fuel that is by the sounds of it still there, tank look halfish size of a coupes usual one so your 10gallons would be about ri...

Running out of fuel with half a tank

Thought the coupe fuel pipe was connected to bottom of the tank, presume as your's isn't standard that may not be the case anymore, indication of pipe location would assist I'd say

Low pressure warning switch / brake pipe threads ?

Lockheed are metric, you can tell by the cuts half way across the nut flat faces, as for the failure switch I'm sorry but I don't have any suggestion, Steve Cork may be able to help you on that score

Otter Switch Fault?

Mike, I can’t see anywhere in the manual that says it’s the same temp rising and falling? The fan would be cycling on and off almost constantly if it was. Jim, was working on the principal that if it opened the circuit at 80 rising then it would close it at 80 falling, manual I have describes it as...

Otter Switch Fault?

Mark, according to workshop manual should be 80 degrees on rising and off falling though daresay that will vary switch to switch, would also be affected by it's location in radiator of course, higher up would need a higher switching temp I'd say, usual position is quite low down really

Otter Switch Fault?

possibly, take it out, pop into a pan of water and heat up, should 'switch' around 80 deg c they usually seal okay so long as you change the grommet as these are single use only so I always order 2 grommets just in case, I've had people at shows say their otter switch has come out, usually because t...
