6B IGNITION WARNING LIGHT

Is it also possible that it might point to a fault in the ignition switch? (if the light is on without the ignition on?)

MGB wheels on SE5A ?

Does the seller have any idea of the rim width also? Unless I've missed it, it doesn't seem to say in the ad?

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

I think I'm in a position to bring the story on 213 / HNH1/HMH1 / PYY726D right up to date, now that I've dug out my photos. These were originally intended to be part of a "sightings" thread, but as I was busy, that never happened :roll: As I understand it, the story of 213 starts when it was bought...

1968 Se4c Coupe' Rebuild

I suspect Joe has been fully occupied with his very active and very impressive rebuild of his GTE, which is currently in progress on this thread?

Ford's SS1

I feel (IMHO) that the earlier one has the disadvantage that the motor is sat inside the intake pipe, blocking some of it off, which surely must reduce efficiency, (quite apart from the smaller fan as well). I've had both types of later fan, (shrouded motor like yours on the right, and exposed motor...

Chris, you show chassis 213 as "originally HMH1" - Is that definite? The reason I ask is that I knew the chap who rebuilt it (under its new number, PYY726D), and I thought he said it was previously HNH1 (which is on DVLA). However, HMH and HNH are easilly miss-heard, so I'm quite prepared to be told...

SSI seized engine

Yes, that does sound a lot easier, as you're taking the engine and box out. When I did it, I was just replacing a broken speedo cable, so didn't have that option. I guess it might be worth thinking about whether to change the cable while you've got everything out, depending on what its condition loo...

SSI seized engine

Thanks for the advice and photo. I had taken all the bolts out but now I have put them back because as advised going to remove the box also. At the moment I'am struggling with the speedo cable, do you need to remove the circlip and if you do what do you use to get it off. Steve Access to the speedo...

And I hope that's right, having just replaced my T1Rs (which were at the end of their life from the point of view of age and wear, as well as having a screw in one of them!), with a set of RS3s! :lol: Too early really to comment on the relative merits etc yet

Regarding the g/box can't you change the oil when located under the car or is a strange ford thing sealed for life. It's a 5 speed series 9 It's not quite "sealed for life", but close - it has a filler plug but (normally) no drain, so the only drainage is via leaks! The only way to get the oil out ...

but I wouldn’t mind having a go at sprinting etc every now and again.
In that case I think you're probably going to need to make sure that you choose a tyre from the MSA List (if roadgoing, probably list 1A, though a compie will be better able to advise in detail :) )
