SE5 with Omega power

Mikey Thanks for the contact I will give you a ring. I took the pedal box the pedal box to pieces as it was seized and the pedals were not moving well.

Are the Se5 and SE5a the same or do they differ?

SE5 wiper Spindle rubbers ?

Lotus Elan +2 or Classic Capri may share this part.

If anyone has got the dimensions or a drawing I may be able to make them.

SE5 with Omega power

I have done nothing about the brakes yet but need to start thinking about it in more detail. Do I refurbish what is there or is there a good upgrade for the front. I have never driven the car so no idea what the standard brakes are like but with the engine upgrade it seems logical to sort the brakes...

Good point Roger. I should have read the question. I think I remember that being written on my school reports!

I don't like to be the profit of doom. but there seems a hole in the roll hoop in the dark area of your photo on the LHS. I looks like it would get quite big if poked with a screwdriver. I would not be happy unless it was cut out.

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

I have no idea on wheel boxes as I have not studied them in any detail but I thought the SE5 shared the windscreen with a Lotus Elan +2 and Classic Capri. If this is the case them it would seem logical that they would need the same wiper blades and wheel boxes to sweep the screen effectively. Someon...

SE5 with Omega power

I thought I would add one more bracket to the exhaust for the diverted pipe to add a bit more support. So I fabricated a new bracket and welded it to the chassis. After a quick paint it looks good to go. 2017 30th Dec 002.JPG 2017 30th Dec 001.JPG Well I think that is all I can do with the body off ...

SE5 with Omega power

The fuel tank came with a free hole where the breaker had drilled it to empty the tank. I was going to fit a drain plug to block it off but it did not work out too well so I decided to weld it up after washing it out very carefully and filling with exhaust fumes to make sure there was no chance of a...
