Essex V6 front pulley(s) alignment SE6A

I didn't suggest that it *had* had a full dynamic balance in production. However, the difference between the drillings in the OP's pulley and oldconn's, does tend to confirm some basic balancing (even if only static). The significant point here though, is that there is no keyway on the outer half of...

Essex V6 front pulley(s) alignment SE6A

And incidentally, don't forget to pop in the crankshaft pulley bolt and washer before you reassemble the pulley, if you are doing it off the car - it won't go in once the pulley is all together :wink:

Essex V6 front pulley(s) alignment SE6A

Errrm, that's not how I understand it, I'm afraid. Look at the back of the main pulley, with it's massively lopsided casting. There's no way that you'd make it like that, if you were building each piece to be individually balanced. It's always been my understanding that, as the V6 is an inherently u...

Seized clutch friction plate?

It does sound as though that's your problem. Hopefully, after only 3 months, it won't have stuck too firmly. I think what I would do is firstly to run the engine for a while until it's well warmed-up, as a bit of heat may help. Then towing it with the clutch depressed may do it. Alternatively if you...

I believe that photo was taken by Tony Heath in about 1997 or so (is that perhaps HBL behind FUG?).

I wasn't aware of the car being offered for sale either, the last I heard was as mentioned earlier. I would have thought it would create quite a buzz if it *was* for sale?

Lucas 16w wiper

To clarify, I presume you are looking for a replacement rear wiper motor for a 6a? That, AFAIK, needs to be a 16W to retain full functionallity. The rear motor has that strange reverse flick park action, which allows it to park off the window, and if you want to keep that, then I think it has to be ...

Re OYT - this is now getting rather tangled - are we sure it's not Russian hackers sabotaging the data? :lol: More seriously, lets strip it back to the known facts. We have two pictures (confirmed) of OYT at Lilford Hall in 1988 (thanks Jeff) https://static.wixstatic.com/media/a9e4c7_82918cced1f3421...

In 1994 at Curborough it did not have Compomotive wheels. Well it was competing at that point, so probably wasn't using it's "smart" wheels (different tyre choices perhaps too) :) The photo in Slice 132 (1993) was on a rally. I don't think anyone is suggesting the advert in C&C was from 1991? Anywa...

Changing the subject slightly.... Does FUG 348D still exist? The DVLA says it hasn't bee taxed for the last 10 years or so. It is the Roadster version of the GT converted by Scimparts - a fine looking GT if ever I saw one. Featured on p. 79 of Don Pither's "Reliant Sports Cars". First dibs if it is...

Slice 122 Nov /Dec 1991 says owned by Philip Micholson Well done Roy! :D The V8 Church entry also refers to the back cove...

Help refitting distributor please

Oh, and this may be a daft question, but your photos seem to have been taken without the inlet manifold fitted? It's normal to fit that before the dizzy (I believe it may be possible, but the dizzy gets in the way)
