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...

It is OYT , it’s the cover car on Slice 122 . It’s shown on the V8Church website for sale and marked sold with 3 photos that confirm Vinyl roof and white interior and Rover V8 . Slice 122 Nov /Dec 1991 says owned by Philip Micholson Well done Roy! :D The V8 Church entry also refers to the back cove...

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)

Wheel options??

All that salt is less than ideal for aluminium wheels which quickly corrode. For that, steel wheels are just stronger and more durable. Fair enough, if being steel is the most important criterion, then you could also consider Weller Wheels (though I see an offer of 4 steels has popped-up on your ot...

Having said that, I've just remembered that OYT633F is earlier in this thread and currently very much on the road See this post from Jeff. So that may be a false alarm. The car in the ad does look very similar, and both V8s too

Do we have a date for the car & classic ad?

Looks like it was a nice car "back in the day" too, problem is if it's been off the road since '94, that's before the digital photography era for most people, so any photos are probably hiding in dusty boxes somewhere... Ah, but I wonder..... Yes, Jeff Craske is one of the people who has sorted out ...

Good point Phil, simply put, anything except another set of wolfrace will need different nuts. Depending on what you end up doing with your spare, you may need to remember to carry a spare set of nuts to match, in case you need to use it.

While it may not be the only reason, I'm guessing that your choice of steels is perhaps influenced by the fact that you think they'll be cheapest, due to being the "basic" option? That's understandable, but it may be worth widening your search to include the Dunlop composite chrome/alloys. They were...
