Rear hubs/bearings?

210 Nm is the front hub, the rear is 165Nm. Torque figures here in the FAQ section.
That's interesting -165Nm is only 122 ft/lbs. It was a long time ago when I did mine (2005) and I would have used the figure from the "red book", and I thought it was more like the figure Craig mentions?

Essex block: get it decked?

I'm not an expert either, but I know one thing you need to take care over is that if you remove material from the block, then that changes the relationship between the heads and the inlet manifold, which can cause a problem with the manifold sealing if not allowed for.

Ss1 late type heater fan

It's not really clear from your descriptions what kind of movement it is. For example, is it circumferential, radial, or axial? Or more of a wobble? :)

Why is my Fan so Cold?

A quick question to start with - which vents are you checking? A common misunderstanding is to expect warm air out of some/all of the eyeball vents. That'll never happen, they're fresh air vents, and only ever blow cold. The only vents which should blow hot are the two demister vents in the top of t...

SE5a twin-fan radiator

Given the curvature of the front valance, then I would have thought you'd need an airdam of some sort to give you a level bottom surface to mount the splitter onto?

Middlebridge alloy offset.

They are 15x6. I've used them on my 6a with no problems (but then a 6a is the same as a MB of course). If you were thinking of putting them on your Coupe, then I think Peter's Coupe has them on it?

Wolfrace ID

Yes, sort of "kidney-shaped". They were called "superslots" (or was it "supaslots"?)

The other ally ones are NOT PA, they are similar to WR but with a different profile and slot shape.
In that case I'd hazard a guess that they're most likely either Cobra or Appliance, Alleycats usually look like this:

Period Pictures / Old Photos / Memories

I was hunting through some old enprint wallets looking for something else entirely :roll: :lol: , and this jumped out at me - from (I think) the RSSOC National Rally in 1985 at Bruntingthorpe, it shows B23KAB (According to Phil's website, the first turbo, chassis 121, with a Rew-turboed 1600CVH), In...
