Oh and I should say I’ve moved - now near Chepstow rather than near Luke in deepest darkest Lincs...

Essex race engine or parts

Thanks for the offers so far chaps - interested in both the heads and the manifold if you’d like to PM how much you’re looking at (and the spec of the heads). I already have the engine that came in the car so have a bottom end etc; I’m more after ‘spare’ already modified parts. But I’m interested in...

SS1 diff from Gloucestershire To Hampshire

I’m going from near Chepstow to Totton on 10 Feb and then to near Portsmouth the following day, might work if the other options fall through.

Wakey wakey

Nowt from me, came 4th in the Championship last year and back out in the Fiesta again this year. First round at Brands on 13 Apt but I’ll be out testing in March. I’ve since had the Scimitar chassis back from Iain Daniels. I’ve bought Protech coilovers and once they are fitted (some fettling to do) ...

Essex race engine or parts

Hi everybody, I’m just back from Autosport and had a good chat with Ric Wood about one of his engines - they sound first class but clearly come at a not insignificant cost... so I was wondering if anybody has either a complete race spec engine (or parts that might help put one together) available? I...

SHOCK CHOICE

Sorry, next silly question... I’m now at the car but can’t find my verniers so having to use a tape measure (= not particularly accurate). Looks like there is 1 1/8” space at the top and bottom brackets, and that the bolts are 1/2” UNF. Is this right? My tape measure is a bit rubbish but I’d have th...

SHOCK CHOICE

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but... I’d like to get a set of Protechs ordered for my car but won’t be near it for a couple of days - can anyone give me the appropriate specs? I know the spring rates I want and that I’ll need extended tops, but without being there to measure what centre/open/clo...

Sparkomatic 8 track AM/FM unit and 74x 8 tracks

Hi gents, I’ve got a working 8 track player that would be great in a Scimitar... tested the other day with one of the 8 tracks and it worked fine (video available on request). Collection from Tattershall in Lincs or from Bristol (I may be able to meet you somewhere between). £100 1FC84713-EC71-45D4-...

Storage

I don’t suppose I would be able to use the facility for a very short term to save a bit of faff while I move house? It’d be to store a trailer with my 5a shell on for a whole three days... from August 27th (Bank Holiday Monday) until Thurs 30th. :?:

Curborough 19 August 2018

I’m going to try to come on 19 August to meet people and ideally have a look around some of the cars - I’m slowly building an SE5a race car. Would people be amenable to me getting in/around/under their cars please? SE5 types only as that is what I’m building - plus I’m still mentally scarred from sp...

T5 Bellhousing Adapter?

I’ve got a T5 on the floor of my garage - and could use a bellhousing if you wanted to try it (and sell it to me if successful) ;)

I already bought one off eBay but it doesn’t fit - could be a Type 9 one I guess...
