People say all new internals probably mean new bearing , seals and other bits , but not new gears .
Yes I think it did include the synchro hubs but not the gear set

Reconditioned gearbox se5a

Actually just been speaking to Nigel at QRG and he recons a reconditioned box is roughly £1K plus VAT. Thats all new internals though I think. I might have a go at it - never done a box before. The change is actually very smooth with no balking or grinding or much slop in the lever its just noisy so...

Reconditioned gearbox se5a

Can anyone give me a ball park figure as to the cost of a reconditioned 4 speed box for my 5A please. I think the overdrive is ok but the box grumbles like a hungry bear lol Its not bad once in 4th but getting there is noisy.

Yellow SE5 series in Doncaster

Hi saw what looked like a yellow SE5 tootling into the B&Q car park in Doncaster today. Any Scimitar sighting in Doncaster are a rare thing indeed.
Was covered in stickers and had a racing White circle on the doors.
Anyone on here?

660XYB Engine fix

Making some progress: draining fluids, and I've removed the starter. I think it is a later type as it is pre-engage (I assume '60's Fords weren't?)
