Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

The difference in the pipe union threads and the need to insulate the pipe has already been mentioned here - might be worth a look :)

NRE 845F is the prototype GTE, which is actually based on a modified hybrid Coupe chassis - it's under long-term restoration by Windy here

West Sussex (Rusper, near Horsham) Noggin - Venue Change

Don't know the significance of it, I'm afraid. Tony is more local than I am so I'll test his knowledge!

West Sussex (Rusper, near Horsham) Noggin - Venue Change

This thread hasn't had an update since 2012, but we have been meeting every month at the same venue. However, I've heard from Tony that this month's noggin (Thursday 15th November, 2018) will not be at our usual venue. Our usual pub has been taken over by some kind of Beaujolais Nouveau event, and i...

20psi coolant pressure?

if the 2.9efi can accept higher pressure without harm (thus less likely to generate steam) then why not do so? I doubt if running the *engine* at 20psi is really the issue. The place where any problems resulting from the higher pressure are more likely to show up, is going to be the extra stress on...

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?

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...

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...
