Re: SE6A Windscreen wiper arms

TEX Automotive do them in stainless steel to fit the se6 you can also use the adjustable length ones which have a screw clamp which helps if your splines are a bit worn.
Google TEX Automotive, hope this helps.

Re: How to fit E clips to Lockheed brake cylinders?

Brilliant, glad it worked for you. I had my back axle rebuilt by Will about 16 years ago and he fitted the brake cylinders like that, apparently they devised that method when he used to race and rally Minis. I am sure that if the method is good enough for rallying it's good enough for us. Pretty wel...

Re: How to fit E clips to Lockheed brake cylinders?

Re: Scimitar Friendly Garages?

Re: wiring query but not cars

The regulations you are referring to are part P of the building regulations, they were brought in in 2005 and made electrical installations a controlled service for the first time. Jenny Tongue, a Liberal Democrat MP, had a daughter killed whilst drilling a hole in her kitchen wall and hit a cable. ...

Re: petrol smell? 76 6a

I had exactly that with my 6b, the metal angle pipe which connects the filler to the rubber hose is welded at the angle joint, mine had a hole in the welding. I had a spare new pipe but if that is your problem the hole could be welded or soldered.
