Road Tax Help

I thought that getting the car registered as a Historic Vehicle was for the MOT not Tax, or is this for both, will try and find out, but i recommend that you check with your insurance provider before deciding not to MOT your car. Not exactly, getting the car put in the "historic" taxation class (ra...

FRONT HUB INNER BEARING OIL SEAL

Yes, you're right about variations, though bearing in mind that I've owned the mulberry car since Jan 1983, I can be pretty certain it is still as original too :D .

Scimitar in Scotland

Or possibly Hescott? If Rob took the photo, presumably he knows exactly where it is? :wink: I see Will spotted it in this thread, back in 2015

Scimitar in Scotland

It's so dirty it's difficult to be 100% sure, but it looks to me as though it's probably Aztec, the same colour as the Yellow Peril, which looks quite nice when it's polished up :D However, what's underneath is important too :wink:

FRONT HUB INNER BEARING OIL SEAL

There is another complication you haven't considered - AFAIK some cars don't have the separate collar, it is in fact cast into the upright. I'm more or less certain that the mulberry car is like that, from my recollection of changing the bearings a couple of years ago :)

petrol!

Your aftermarket fuel cap looks good. What I found interesting is that whenever I 'brim' my tank it seldom goes much above three quarters full! Is this a fault of the breed? If you do literally "brim" it (i.e. the petrol is visible in the neck just below the cap), the the gauge should read full (as...

1976 SE6 GTE

May be worth mentioning that if you're fiddling with the electrics in that area, it's much easier if you take out the glovebox liner - it's only held by two self-tappers (one each side) and then just lifts out, making everything much more visible/accessible. :wink:

Temperature gauge reading low?

A "quick & simple" check which might be worth trying (with ignition on):
1. disconnect the sender wire ( = infinitely high resistance) then the gauge should (as you would expect) show zero.
2. short the wire out on the block, head or manifold ( = zero resistance) the gauge should go to max.
