SE5 manual o/d for sale

It has certainly upset a few of the local boy racers!
The engine is really torquey with excellent mid range power.
I set the cam slightly advanced to bump up the midrange.

SE5 manual o/d for sale

I am considering selling my 69/70 SE5. I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing but I hardly use it and need space for a boat in the garage. Anyway, I think it's in pretty good condition ,red with a good condition black interior. The engine was rebuilt around 3000 miles ago to a high spec. All machini...

Fuel hose leak

I fitted screw in carb stubs after one of mine fell out causing huge fuel loss all over my engine bay.
IDA ones fit if you drill and tap the carb top [M10 x 1mm].

SE5 earth ID

I can't manage a picture at the moment, unfortunately.
The wire disappears into the loom and, I assume into the dashboard.

SE5 earth ID

I have had an earth wire come adrift on the bulkhead of my SE5 and I am trying to work
out what it earths, as all of my electrical systems seem to work without it!
It is on the left hand side of the bulkhead, and uses the same earth as the one used for
the voltage regulator.
Can anyone help?

Do TR6 drums fit GT/GTE with Girling rears? - Sorted!

I bought a pair of brand new A60 drums for £60 and the backplate/cylinders and shoes are exactly the same
as the Scimitar.

Do TR6 drums fit GT/GTE with Girling rears? - Sorted!

Just for interest,I've used Austin A60 drums on my SE5.
The wheel mounting face is flat and the offset is very slightly different which meant
I had to put a 3mm spacer between the drum and hub.
Other than that the rear brakes are identical to the A60.

Just looking for my brother's old SE5 on the DVLA website and noticed the V5

Anyone on here?

How to check if eureka wire is present?

I thought it seemed a bit low as well.
I have a 9v ballast coil fitted.
Could that cause a poor spark at low revs?
