71 GTE SE5A my rolling restoration

If they're like the earlier SE5 one they go the consistency of liquorice which causes clattering - especially on an uphill take-off....Back light could be an oxidised bullet connector but, as you say, most likely an earth..........But am sure all is resolved by now?

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Yesterday afternoon: a lovely metallic 'golden sand?' sixties S-type Jag. in the distance, turning onto the road towards Leek - local car, I think, as am sure that have seen it on the forecourt of the local garage. Later in Leek a 'K' plate MGB GT in what looked suspiciously like 'Nevada Yellow' :sh...

Interesting, Peter - I did over 47,000miles in an MGA Roadster without a claim....so far have done nearly 20,000 in the SE5 - oh & about 29,000 in the Herald along with 3,000 in a seventies MGB GT a couple of years ago & odds & sods in others that were acquired to sell on. I think that you realise t...

...No I wouldn't go less than the original spec. size on the SE5, Roy - I have 185.80 x 14's on original steels....as Phil intimated these will be on a Spartan kitcar - interestingly when I took the remaining 4 wheels in to have the tyres put on, Pete said that they were specified for the base versi...

if you were closer you could have for free a set of good used tyres to stand it on, they are old so not suitable for using on the road,
....That's a very kind offer - are they full profile 185 X 14? ......How old is old.... :w ... :?:

Part worns are around £25-30 by the time you've got them fitted Geoff (the tyres might be cheap but they sting you on the fitting charges)- new ones are £33.99? Oh I see, Phil - will also sound out 'All Car Exhausts' in Leek ...I know Tom who owns it & his son who co-runs it - &, of course, will ch...

Possible temporary thread hijack warning! :D ....Am in temporary possession of a Spartan kitcar (Phil H.may have noticed it on his travels...)
