Historic class isn't the same as MoT exempt.

"Historic Vehicle" is for tax exemption - available in the April AFTER it's 40th birthday
"VHI" is for MoT exemption - available 40 yrs + 1day after first registration.
Sorry meant the latter - so will get that sorted on Monday..

MOT exemption

Good day all,

after stating my SE6a is MOT exempt- i tried to Tax it online- but failed as it stated as requiring a MOT - my V5 has a registered date as June 1978 ..
Is it possible to get it taxed at the PO with the relevant forms V112 and V5 and not online?

SE6a Not Starting Only Turning Over

Thanks for the comments guys! Did you pump the throttle a couple of times (at least) to set the choke and prime the carb, before attempting to start? Yes, as standard I do this. ..pivot the flappy choke plates aside and pull on the throttle cable a few times- you should see petrol squirting down bo...

SE6a Not Starting Only Turning Over

...It is pumping fuel up to the carb however I am unsure how to see if the fuel is being sprayed by the jets, can I check this whilst its in place or do I need to remove it? ..pivot the flappy choke plates aside and pull on the throttle cable a few times- you should see petrol squirting down both b...

SE6a Not Starting Only Turning Over

Hi i am by no means an expert here...but if the carb does run with neat fuel in the barrel- my thoughts would be to check if you are getting fuel from the carb fuel bowl through the jets...action the throttle plate and check if fuel is being squirted into the carb ...i am sure the experts that have ...

Manny's SS1 1600

Good day all ,
Was about to have a go at adjusting the clutch - It started to snow!! So will attend to later...
Am I right in thinking someone modified their chassis so that the gearbox could removed from underneath rather than the engine bay?
