1969 Se5 Webasto folding sunroof??

I am in process of fitting a new headlining and vinyl cover to the Tudor Webasto roof on my SE5a. The rear plate has rusted away in the corners and has now been rebuilt with new metal. The cable guides are missing. Has anyone fitted a mechanism to act as a cable guide? Just interested in ideas and h...

1969 Se5 Webasto folding sunroof??

Thanks Gordon for your suggestion and contact details. The Trimming Centre quoted a price for the complete kit of £1350.00 plus vat plus postage. I think thats too much to spend relative the value of the car. Thanks for the installation manuals - I am going to repair the roof and headlining myself. ...

SE5a valve length wrt mild road cam & unleaded seat inserts

Thanks for the ideas. The exhaust manifolds were fitted to the heads on the bench, so I am pretty sure there is a good seal. I haven't physically checked the camshaft yet. I may do it when I have the engine out to change the clutch.

SE5a valve length wrt mild road cam & unleaded seat inserts

Thanks for the feedback. If the engine is out, is removing the camshaft bearings difficult for a "home mechanic"?

Tudor Webasto sunroof- repair to front wood section

I am replacing the vinyl on my folding sunroof. I have removed the roof. On inspection the front wooden section that contains the locking mechanism has delaminated. I am toying with the idea of fabricating a new section from a hard wood. I could use the old piece as a template but because of the del...
