Former member SE5A V8 at Riverview today

Yes, they did indeed navigate the famous yellow/green Se5a V8 to the Bluebell Railway at Horsted Keynes, for a very nice day out in the sunshine. I'm afraid I can't claim the credit for the arrangements, that's the work of our events coordinator, but there are so many events these days, that some cl...

On Pendine Sands today, a new Land Speed Record of 101 mph was established by the motorised shed, which has appeared on here before. See the BBC report of the event here :)

Rear wheel cylinder

Are you sure the clip is properly seated with all 3 lugs in the groove? I find, as Mark mentioned, it's always pretty tight and a bit of a pain to fit.

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

A couple of the Automotive Designers were complementary about the coupe styling, which was interesting, with some comparisons to more exotic GTs. I always feel the Lamborghini 400 GT has more than a slight resemblance: (photo from Wikipedia) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/c4...

Disappearing Power!!! SS1

When I first got my SS1 I had much the same problem, with water in the fuel. I tried the dry-fuel stuff, which was worth a try, but it didn't do the trick - mind you when I removed the tank I found there was over 2 litres of water sloshing around at the bottom, so it's perhaps not surprising! In rel...

Thermostat housing leak - 2.9i V6

While you're under the bonnet, is there any chance you could see how different or the same are the water hoses for the two engines, please ? I'm still trying to find some way forward on getting silicone hoses for the 2.9, and it's established at least a mandrel set exists for the 2.8. A word of cau...

Essex distributor replacement help please.

There's a lot to be said for getting out your strobe periodically, and checking the timing, giving the dizzy a bit of a wiggle to and fro, even if it doesn't really need setting and ends up back in the same place, simply to keep the dizzy free moving in the block. :wink:

Have you tried refreshing the thread? That often causes them to re-appear :)

Feel like Robert de Niro in "Brazil"

Thank you Roger, I still hope, that I don't have to remove the heater. Yes, fair point, though I thought some of the photos may help to confirm the original air duct runs? :) I believe you're in Germany, from your earlier posts? may be worth a mention as it may complicate the shipment of parts?

Model differences 6 to 6a

I've been busy lately so this is a late reply to this thread, but it's worth adding that there is a typo in Don's Book and paint code 53 is actually Russet Red :D
