Thrmostat

Apologies if this is teaching granny to suck eggs, but when you did your testing, did you dangle the thermostat on a piece of string in the middle of the water?

Do the Part numbers/ remarks column provide useful information?

Unfortunately it was only with he SE6 that Reliant started putting technical descriptions of bolts in the workshop manual - and the SE6 manual didn’t include engine and gearbox (because the dealer would already have an SE5 manual with that info). And even in the case of the Se6 series the technical...

Do the Part numbers/ remarks column provide useful information?

The numbers are *just* reference numbers - having said that they may sometimes be useful. The left hand column are Reliant Part Numbers, and the right hand "remarks" column may contain a Ford part number (obviously only applies to parts sourced from them like most of the engine and gearbox). The RH ...

Dash vent problems

Roy, Have you been following Victor's Coupe build? He has recently tackled the rebuild of his dash (and very nice it looks too). He doesn't say how the vent covers were attached, but it might be worth asking?

John Haynes

Yes, he's had a huge influence on motoring - there can't be many people who've ever owned a non-guaranteed car, who haven't had at least one Haynes manual! (I've certainly got a fair few knocking about!). Obviously the manufacturer's manuals are the definitive source, but Haynes were normally a reli...

ORE 243F is chassis 400819, I have as sold to Nick and on the road 2018
That one is a bit promiscuous - after Nick it went to Corky for a while before moving to Devon (I think) and through the hands of a few dealers.

Another GTC.... almost

I thought the GTC shell was destined for a 6a with a John Wade Essex, but maybe plans got changed? (thread in members' archive)

Denpart GTC surfaces

I think I'd definitely want more clarity before I'd spend any money. A rebuilt GTC on a GTC chassis, is a vastly different thing from a rebuilt "GTC" on a GTE chassis.....

What oil in SE5a 3 rod gearbox - alternative to SAE80?

I'm sure it's excellent stuff in applications for which it's specified - doesn't mean I'd want to use it in ones where it isn't specified though?
