Good make of clutch for 2.9efi

Don`t know which release bearing is used though as I hve never split a 2.9i, but it should be the generic Ford part as the 2.9i is not a hybrid like Reliant used. This is my second at...

Do it by feel Ian You WILL have to tighten it all up again and again and again :!: Unless you use a flexible sealant such as Sikasil RTV oil resistant fluid gasket. Modern engines use the very minimum of "Thick" gasket as modern manufacturing tolerances can achieve better mating surfaces. But where ...

Stainless Steel Door hinge mountings

Are you sure on an se5 ?

They changed at some time on the se5a from the Staggered slots to Parallel.

What I mean is are all 4 slots equally stamped or offset?

Will post pictures of the Two types later.

i did think about a BMW 2.0 M47
The M47 is also the Rover 75 implant and I have an MG with over 300.000 on the clock that runs just fine.
My mate has a 6a with a Ford 2.2 turbo fitted and the noise and speed is exactly the same as the Essex.

Stainless Steel Door hinge mountings

Hi Brian

Can you confirm your bolt slots are staggered or parallel please.

I have most types in stock but will have too look up the cost as I`m not near my emporium.

Do you need both doors worth ie 4 kits ?

Cheers Mark

Steering

3.5 turns is the standard Reliant fitted rack.
I have only ever come across higher ratios of this rack that makes the steering lighter, but more turns lock to lock.
Throw enough money about and a solution will be made/found/achieved

They been messed with Ron
Shouldn`t be piggybacked and the originals are Lucas "Barrel" type, the Ripca I have never heard of.

Have you checked and cleaned the fuses in the engine bay that are in the small black fuse box fastened to the slam panel ?

old thread i know but any more details anywhere on how to do this
What are you wanting to achieve ? the SE5 rack is a lower ratio than most cars of it`s era.


Easier slow speed turning?
Lighter steering?.
Worn rack and a rebuild ?. :w

Ian I have a few front studs spare, the hub will have to come off, and sometimes the disc to get to the head of the stud to knock it back in, or sometimes you can pull it back in with the wheel nut and and a spacer.
