Slave cylinder and advice

Wouldn't be the first time a car has sat built, but not registered, for 2 years (happened surprisingly often with the SS1 production).

LOCKED topics

The quote is simply that the references you made didn’t make sense to me. The threads you referred to should have been deleted months ago, so thank you for pointing out the lapse in our housekeeping. That housekeeping should have been done earlier - likewise if you had wanted the threads in question...

Yes, but the threads have now gone?

You could/should have asked for them to be moved to Project Progress a year ago though?

I’m viewing and policing this forum on my phone in between filling and emptying a washing machine and a tumble dryer, ronnie. If you want the aforementioned threads resurrecting, please ask directly rather than beat around the bush? There is no conspiracy here. We come on as and when we can. In the ...

Old Major Squealer Purge Means nothing no me I’m afraid. Unless there becomes a real point to this thread very quickly, apart from “spit and spat”, the it will find itself locked and/or deleted. Topics are locked to prevent any further discussion. It’s a bit pointless draggging up a thread for an ex...

A bit out of my depth!

That should make it an early SE5a, about 1971/72?

Looking forward to pictures as my current car also came out of a barn.

Malta Classic 2017 - pic heavy

I reckon it's got the highest proportion of classics per capita of anywhere (the population of Malta is about the same as Bristol!). Certainly seems that way, both driving around the island(s) and events like this.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

That looks like a back-emf diode to me (across Y14)? If the ECU isn't trying to drive it (which I wouldn't expect with ignition on, not running, not connected) then you will see 12V as it has no return path (through the ECU). Try unplugging Y14 with the ECU connected (and ignition on) and then see w...

Bore centre spacing - Essex?

Such is the layout of these injectors, extruded rail won't work as they need to come off at two different angles from the same rail. Jenvey will do custom rails - that's the other option I mentioned. Looking at whether or not I can use something "off the shelf" such as Jag/Nissan/something else V6 -...

Bore centre spacing - Essex?

Looking for a fuel rail for EFi...and whether or not it's worth trying to modify something else or just get a bespoke one made up instead. I have a rough guesstimate cost for one made to measure but if there's something else that may work...
