Two queries: gearbox and starter nut

There's a steel cover plate (no 6 in the following drawing from the Reliant/GW online parts list). They often seem to be lost.

ScimFest @ Curborough 17-19 August 2018

Well, you might *think* you could have mended it for me - I admire your confidence, bearing in mind that the actual fault is still unknown. From my perspective, stuck at the side of the road watching the sun getting lower in the sky, the safer option seemed the more sensible. There's a risk that con...

"Extra bearing"? I'm curious. Are you saying some Type 9 gearboxes have an additional bearing? If so what does it support and why?
Thanks
This article should be worth a read :D

Cooling Fan

Back to the first question, are 6B radiators different to 6A? AFAIK they are different because the water outlets are configured differently . I don't know if there's any difference in core size or makeup, I suspect they are pretty similar if not the same, as they fit in essentially the same space i...

Bottom hose SE5

If you want a made-to-measure one, then QRG would be my first port of call - they do them in silicone, and they sell them individually. If you're going to Curborough Nigel will probably have some with him. In ordinary rubber these days you may only be able to get the kevlar-reinforced ones, which I ...

ScimFest @ Curborough 17-19 August 2018

Whats wrong with it Roger i can take a part off one of my 6a's to get you going Thanks for the offer, but that's the problem really - if it had gone bang and a wheel fell off, I could say "right, that's the problem, let's fix it", but like a lot of these problems, there isn't a clear smoking gun, j...

ScimFest @ Curborough 17-19 August 2018

Surely you have another Scimitar to come in? Less than you might think! Only the SS1, and the camping equipment won't go in that (and in any case, I couldn't get the camping stuff out of the Yellow Peril, as it's in the smallest of my rented garages, because that one has a level entry, so it was th...

SS1 boot spoiler

Hi, I think that I read that the Toyota MR 2 mk 1 boot spoiler fits the SS1. Can someone confirm it for me please. If so will I need to update the boot struts for stronger ones? Or am I better off looking for a spoiler from the ti, unless that’s like looking for rocking horse s**t! Cheers Yes the M...

Well, after a long and frustrating day yesterday, it looks like I won't be at Curbs this year.......
Absolutely gutted :(

Members Map

Think your problem has been solved in this thread?

I'd guess the problem of the map won't be an instant fix - the message I get from it suggests that it won't be unfrozen unless the Club decide to pay them money - looks a bit like PB again?

Charging Problem?

Thanks Jim, I've actually got a nagging feeling that I bought one from Nigel at Curborough a few years ago, but I presumably put it in a safe place, because I can't find it now...... :oops:

Charging Problem?

I found my jeweller's screwdrivers, poked, prodded, and tweaked, and the only thing getting depressed seemed to be me! :lol: TBH the whole thing is a bit old and crusty, which may not be helping. I tried a spray of electrical contact cleaner, which cleaned it a bit, but the connector still stayed st...

Charging Problem?

Well, I may have found the problem - the charge light wire seems to have broken off the plug! Llght comes on when earthed. To solder it back on, Im going to need to extract the terminal - presumably it has a little tang to release somewhere - if so where?

Charging Problem?

thanks. Am I right in thinking that, when the ignition is on, and the engine not running, current flows through the charge light to the alternator, and from there to earth, lighting the bulb? When the alternator starts charging, current flows the other way, cancelling it out, and extinguishing the b...
