New Shocks and Bushes

I believe the spax shocks were designed for the se5 and it is assumed they will fit the se6a but the top and bottom brackets are wider on se6 than se5. I don't think the se5 has top hat washers. Because of these top hat washers the eyes of the support bracket are larger than the eye of the bushes on...

SE6 Not Starting

I once started the car without the spare wheel tray fitted. It decided to use the wiper motor earth and burnt through the loom :(.
lucky for me it only melted the tape around the loom and none of the other wires were affected. I added a thick wire direct from the batter to the engine.

Joe the RHS bearing will not fit either the carrier OR the Scimitar arm, its of an entirely different design and construction.

Silicone hoses for waterless coolant - overkill or prudence?

The waterless coolant Is a great idea but... you will need 10L + 10L of prep solution. You are looking at about £200 :shock: I believe the prep solution can be reused. It doesn't clean... it just removes the water. I have upgraded any off the shelf hoses with silicone as the kevlar re-inforced ones ...

The correct flat face bearing is £72 from QRG but doesn't come with the carrier. it looks like you have one anyway on the bearing on the LHS

I had to get brutal with the old bearing to remove it from the carrier

Timing wheel - is this normal

yes both gears are the correct way round. the timing marks are only on one side. I believe it is the correct Cam wheel, it came with as part of the group buy from SA and included a matching crankshaft gear. yes the cam wheel is sitting nicely on the crankshaft. its pretty well seated with only a cou...

Timing wheel - is this normal

The camshaft will always be slightly recessed in the gear, otherwise the gear will not be tightly clamped against the camshaft shoulder thanks for confirming, I was hoping that i hadn't screwed it up here is a picture of the camshaft down the distributor hole which lines up nicely in the center. 20...

Timing wheel - is this normal

I did a bit more searching and I found another that is similar. I think what happens is the wheel is secured against the crankshaft but the collar behind it keeps it from resting against the front of the engine. I have totated the engine several times and all seems to be working fine. https://4.bp.b...

Timing wheel - is this normal

on replacing the timing wheel I see that the front face of the timing wheel is not flush with the end of camshaft. There is a 4-5mm space there. Is this normal ? I cant seem to find any pictures online of this setup with the bolt removed. I'm a bit worried the camshaft has been moved back a bit into...
