Goodwood Photo Competition

Roger, I'm glad you enjoyed my Revival report. It's a fabulous event! Wish I could say I had attended them all....

That Talisman is just gorgeous. Probably one of the few cars I would consider swapping my Rochdale Olympic with.

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Time for another update. I've now owned my Scimitar for a bit more than 2 months. For a short sum-up, I could simply quote good ol' Ronald McDonald: I'm loving' it!! Should you want more detail on the work that's been done, and not least on our roadtrip to Denmark and back, here's a link to the arti...

New book

Whoooaar... just imagine how different my life would have been if someone had handed me that book some 20-odd years ago...!!

Goodwood Photo Competition

Congrats Roger! Well done... :D Some brilliant pics. I particularly like the Jag MK.II's - excellent action shot with the grass coming off the tyres of IVA 400. And the lighting on your Revival Style picture of the Breadvan and Swb is fab. I am clearly but an amateur photographer, but for what it's ...

Mystery Car

I'm unfortunately not going to be of much help either. When I first saw the picture, the first name that popped to mind was Lenham... The car certainly seems too small to be based on a Daimler Dart, Harrington Alpine or Trident Clipper. But looking closer, I think Jim might well have nailed it with ...

Yep - 15lb/ft or about 20Nm if you’ve got a torque wrench make in the last 30 years. That’s normally right at the bottom of the range of most 1/2” ones - think I’ve got a 3/8” drive one which goes lower.
Much appreciated - thx Phil... :wink:

If there’s no obvious leaks, it’s always worth going round the inlet manifold bolts with a torque wrench.
Thx Phil. Any thoughts on how much torque I want to apply?

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

We're now back in the UK with the Scimitar covering a smidgen more than 2000 miles in 8 days. I'm happy to report that our Scimitar performed faultlessly! It drank about half a litre of 20W/50 engine oil during the trip, which I find perfectly acceptable. During the end of our drive, it started loos...

Springs, Dampers and Bushings

02Anders Sorry if we may have burst your bubble of joy, but the more the problem is brought up with our specialists and the shock/bush manufacturers then maybe the truth will get through. And anyway alternatives can be found like Protech did. Dennis Dennis, you're not bursting my bubble at all. I t...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Good morning Gents, There's a fresh update on my Scimitar on ViaRETRO this morning, detailing the instalment of the Quickfit seatbelts. It wasn't cheap if I'm to be totally honest, but I must say that I'm over the moon with the final result. https://viaretro.com/2019/02/buckle-up-and-stay-safe/ We'v...

Springs, Dampers and Bushings

Dennis, thx indeed for that write-up. Very thorough and informative... :D As it is though, all the suspension work has already been done now. I ended up taking my Scimitar to Graham Walker. I imagine - or at the very least, hope - that they would be aware of the difference between SE5 and SE6 compon...
