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...

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...

Charging Problem?

I'm in need of some electrical advice from the gurus (which I'm not, I'm afraid!). I've just been packing my stuff in the car, and doing a final check of fluids, tyre pressures etc, in readiness for my trip tomorrow. I started the car to put it back in the garage, and I noticed the voltmeter wasn't ...

My only problem now is the catch has come off the frame and I cant see how it is supposed to be attached. Was it welded? I'm not even sure which way up it is supposed to be.
Anyone got pics?
Any help?

Se6/SE8 ride height

For standard suspension, Reliant specified a distance of 13.64 inches between the top and bottom front damper eyes, as representing the standard suspension setup. (ie for the standard alignment of the wishbones, uprights etc).

Roof Rack for SE5a

Feet would be better, but might be tricky if, like Jim, you've got a webasto roof?

What model do I have is it a 6 or 6A

Worth noting that the chassis numbers start at 1001, so there were only 551 Se6 made, of which yours is number 420 :)
