71 GTE SE5A my rolling restoration

Arrival of second child and trying to keep up with business in short. I shall arrange another but for the mean time they are as you say available and it is good to support the Scimitar traders.

71 GTE SE5A my rolling restoration

Hello and welcome from not so far away!
Hopefully not too much damage to the engine internals. At this point I would offer you an alloy timing gear kit, but I have none left and importing another batch has fallen by the wayside.

660XYB Engine fix

Same format as a Reliant Robin (et all) downpipe gasket although sizing may well be different. I can measure one up for you though.

I might have exhaust clearance problems?

Just don't turn left! Simple.

More pics of the alternator and water pump arrangement, doesn't look like there's much space for anything!

I suppose it does help using soggy old springs :roll: Ok I'll concede that Jim's right it's easy enough to do and yes, the danger is relatively small just don't stick your face in there! Getting rather excited for this year's sprinting, a lot of RG Scimitars coming together and not all cooked the sa...

RAC - Customer loyalty penalty

My favourite one with the RAC. Their performance target window. If they don't get to you within an hour, you become a LESSER priority as the target has been missed!

Never again.

Hmm, I'm not convinced Jim. I have never managed to refit standard (12.25" 180lbs) springs back onto a car without pre-compression and whilst I do ping them out with a pry bar (whilst looking the other way) I still feel they go with a bit of a twang. Going by the picture above you are still looking ...

Ss1/sabre cross breed on Copart

Just over an hour left and still at only £375.

May well be selling for a pittance... anyone on here going to bite?

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Oh yes and welcome, I shall be watching with interest. Looks in good order and gorgeous in that colour.

Getting tired of our modern dailies.... The temptation of a "practical" Scimitar grows.

The steel / GRP anchorages are incredibly strong IMHO.

You can drag a (late) Robin sideways with a similar point. Not tried it with a GTE mind, but for my own safety I'd have absolutely no concern fitting belts up to them.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

I have to say that the survival rate for Coupes is quite staggering my view! Can't believe so many are still alive and accounted for.

Keep up the good work all.
