"I thought I'd just put the brakes together and drive it"...

Question: Are your squab seats also kind of loos so when you have luggage in the back it can move the squabs slightly to the upright position? Or does it bend back enough so that this doesn't occur? AFAIK the rear seats were all designed with an "over-centre" action, so that the backrests would "se...

I’m thinking of mounting it behind the wheel, upside down, sounds crazy, but it would be convenient.
On an Se6a with PAS the easiest way to change the filter is through the wheelarch, so it's perhaps not so strange? The only problem might be if it's going to be vulnerable to stones?

Spegru SE6a

There are two basic types - (only one side shown I'm afraid) - these are the "short primary" type (of unknown manufacture) as fitted to the Yellow Peril: Short Primary Exhausts.jpg and these are the "long primary" type (in this case John Cheesman austenitic ones) as fitted to the mulberry car Long P...

Heated front screen.

It could be argued that it's more likely to be worthwhile in an occasional use car, as it's more likely to be damp inside, and hence to steam up the windows? May depend how effective your existing heating and demisting is as well? If your "occasional use" is only on warm sunny days in summer, then a...

My ongoing ss1 restoration

A "handy hint" if you're dismantling a multi-switch like that, with lots of little springs, balls and contacts, is to do it inside a large clear plastic bag - that way you can see what you're doing, but small parts can't spring off into the far corners of the room! :D

Vinylkote code but first, how do I get it out?

I've changed handbrake pulleys three times without removing the prop - though I do have slimmer hands than some.

headlight height

Looking at your photos, I can't help wondering, like Phil, whether it could be a matter of raising the nearside and lowering the offside using the turnbuckle adjustment, and then re-aligning the lights to suit. I'd probably try that first, simply because it's easier, if nothing else? :)

What is the sensor just ahead of the thermostat housing on the left nearside rear, the wire on this looks a bit ify.
That's the sender for the temp. gauge, so it wouldn't do any harm to replace the connector, if looks a bit the worse for wear.
