Steering Notchy on LH side

Jack the car up.....if problem still there it's more likely to be the rack as pressure off steering joints should allow them to move more freely.

Possible scammer selling Scimitars on eBay

This is amusing if it wasn't serious.! If you check how many vehicles they supposedly have for sale you wonder why ebay don't pick it up! I've sent so many scammer reports to Ebay about this person when the ads keep reappearing that ebay messaged me to ask me to stop. I responded by asking them to s...

Wanted alloy wheel centre caps

Hi Ray, if you have no luck, try an internet search for a metal spinning company near you. Aluminium spun centres shouldn't cost too much. I've had them done for another car years ago by a company in Birmingham.

So when is my GTC tax exempt?

Thanks Jim, although my copy is headed from Reliant. As I have said, I can only see how my contact in the dvla gets on with my submission in April. Till then, I cannot say more.

So when is my GTC tax exempt?

Hi Guy, no my car is an e, but it doesn't matter the car, we are basically talking 40 year old scimitars and the dvla historic status. The letter is not a dealer provided one, it is the factory letter to dealers explaining the dating system on the chassis numbers. I haven't copied it in as I didn't ...

So when is my GTC tax exempt?

Jim, I'll let you know what happens in April when I apply for mine. I will reiterate that it is important to have written proof of the date of construction of the vehicle and as you rightly said, make sure that the v5 document is corrected to this prior to exemption claim. My only concern at present...

So when is my GTC tax exempt?

Guy, I think what Jim has said is right, but not as you said, when a vehicle is first registered. Applying for tax exemption is (at present) based on a forty year rolling qualification from the end of december. This comes into play after the dvla update their website early in April each year. Now, i...

essex bellhousing bolt size

Definitely 3/8 unf......I had to do the same. Order nice and long so bolts go well into threads as (of course) you will only use four and get some good packing washers as the ends of the tubes on the stands are gonna point load the end plate without.

Possible scammer selling Scimitars on eBay

Terry, I totally agree about Facebook, but like many dodgy things in life (including restoring scimitars 😁) it has its uses. Just use it but put no personal information on it and don't download from it, have no 'friends' and you're relatively safe!

Possible scammer selling Scimitars on eBay

Terry, over on the Facebook site, we've been collectively reporting the seller, hence his ads have been removed. Are you sure you are still seeing one? It may be your browser remembering and returning background saved info. I'll check to see if it's the same Ruski!

Scimitars in a Gilbern book!

Being as I'm in Wales, there is an absolute love for them here with some going for silly money. All I can remember from the 70s was that a friend had one.....we all had to drive behind him to see where the parts that fell off had landed! :lol:
