Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

Check the upper wishbone bolts are free and if they're not, start trying to free them. Then do the turbo as there's more chance of that job requiring hard to find parts. The suspension is easy to sort. The oil doesn't need draining and iirc you have to split all joins to help access to the harder to...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

GJA 567D (173) can be updated as mine, HDB 567D (240) can be updated as being in Luxembourg and 149 was scrapped. Also, I'm surprised that 21 (CCM ***C) isn't listed as it was in Ellesmere Port for sale in 2013 and was auctioned about a year ago somewhere else although wasn't sold IIRC

Alternative master cylinders

1/8npt male to 3/8unf female I think. eBay probably. No, it's a direct fit to the pedalbox but as usual, retain the old pushrod

Alternative master cylinders

Yes I put a 73 series on my 5a and bought a 74 for my first Coupé. The only thing with the 73 is the unoriginal looks and the need for an adapter so your old pipe connects to it. As for the clutch systems, I’ve gone back to refurbishing the old units where possible as I’m not a fan of the quality of...

I have some boot hinges Graham. I also have a boot lock (in a very safe place) but only glove box lids for a straight six

Thanks David. I made the bushes on a lathe. I'm not sure about the springs but I have another pedalbox in pieces somewhere that I can get one from if necessary

Oaksey's Straight Six

Cheers Roger. My mind is ever changing JP. The engine that’s been built isn’t standard so it will have a bit more go, I’ve got a set of wider wire wheels that may go on but I’m probably going to keep it relatively standard. Mainly as I don’t really have the time right now and don’t think I will in t...

Cheers guys. The bobbins aren't too bad Phil, it just made sense to me as I needed to fabricate something anyway. I would also say that the quality of the replacement bobbins are pretty poor whereas the ford mounts are pretty good. I didn't do the coating myself Mike, I've not got the resources yet....

The gearbox. As documented, this car has always had the non overdrive gearbox. Whilst there is nothing wrong with it, the lack of overdrive doesn't suit the straight six's driving characteristics as well as non O/D does In later Scimitars. For this reason, I'd always intended on fitting an overdrive...

Oaksey's Straight Six

Some of this work is out of sequence as I'm documenting progress one area at a time. So the pedal box was stripped down, blasted, painted and built up with new bolts, bushes (still fitted to pedals in photo) and pins 20180906_182122.jpg 20180912_182202.jpg Following on from earlier, the brake master...
