Recommendation for engine rebuilder

Brian North came on the stand at the Bristol Show last month and talked engines. Appeared very knowledgeable and motivated. Claimed he was heading to retirement, so not as active as he was.

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Jim would only love it if the centre cap had a beard.

Didn’t BMW come up with a good idea with the i8?
You referring to the fact that they breakdown a lot and don’t need to make a noise, just have static obstacle lights at night?

what about having someone walk infront with a red flag...
What a good idea. Will also give ex-drivers something to do when they make electric cars autonomous.

Bristol Classic Car Show 22/23 June 2019

Thanks to Dave Asselborough and his Wife for orchestrating the stand at the BCCS over the weekend and also to the Wiltshire Noggin for manning the stand. Many visited the stand and there was much positive discussion about Scimitars, although the bloke in the Union Jack T-shirt seems surprised it has...

Which Oil filter for SSI 1800TI??

Ron, That filter was the same that came when I got the car. I just replaced it like for like. I didn't clock it was "bigger" as I had nothing else to compare it with. I took the battery and battery tray out to make access easier and then had no problem getting the old one off and the new one on. I d...

"NOS" Essex 3.0 Engine

Not sure it looks like a UK 1970/80s crated engine, but maybe another from SA? Not 3.4 nor injected so perhaps elsewhere?

Yea, S2000 go the wrong way. It’s not a massive issue in a GTE once the seats are turned around, they already have a nice big rear window with a wiper.

Are you referring to Luke or the car?

Welcome.
I have a friend who lives in Ottershaw and I'm sure he could find you somewhere to park your Scimitar.
