Ford's SS1

Steering lock is held together with m8 shear bolts. On the of occasion I find them not sheared. But usually it's just a case of centre punch and drill out, they are no special grade and are usually easy to drill. Once the head is give your will find the remains of the bolt winds out easily add they ...

Happy Birthday Reliant Reviver

Normally I ask for socks. You can never have a enough good socks. Well that was my thinking until last year Mrs RR. bought me a huge bundle of them. I have since wanted for nothing.

Apart from the recently released Dead Can Dance album. I did ask for that.

Everything else was a pleasant surprise.

Happy Birthday Reliant Reviver

Shhhhh.

I already qualify for classic car insurance policies, we can stop counting birthdays now!

Woolly jumper, book on the local history and a quality pair of safety glasses. More like 72 than 27!

SSI seized engine

"Mighty" SE6 - Rock and Roll!

Money best spent on a quality all season or winter tyre, then protect the Wolfies in winter with liberal application of Vaseline.

Can't think composites would in any way be the best choice given how they deteriorate and are very difficult to refurbish.

Manny's SS1 1600

There are two schools of thought on cable adjustment for a ball bearing release bearing acting on a pressure plate clutch. Either no play (constant contact) with very little pressure, or a tiny bit of play (3mm in the outer as Alan suggests, which aligns with the ford guidance). Too much play and es...

Potentially dumb question - SS1 sunroof

Push the knob up with the flat of your hand as you turn it. That way you are providing the force to open the sunroof and the plastic worm drive is not doing the hard work.
