Coming back after more than 20 years

Hello and welcome back! Yes a familiar name amongst those immersed in the world of Scimitars. I still have an example of "your" brake upgrade in my possession. I seem to recall you had written a rather amusing letter in a Slice circa 1989/1990 that spoke of the dismay for Reliant discontinuing the d...

Brake pedal bringing on brake light switch

If it had continuity then the wire is intact. I have removed pads where the wire is entirely worn away, only then would you expect no continuity between the two pins.

Probably a manufacturing defect with the pad, can't recall what was fitted by me, but nothing to write home about brand wise.

SS1 Fuel Pump Query

Seconded on the part number "87SF-9350-AA" and that should bring you up results on google or eBay for a replacement. Just to come back to an explanation. Original equipment on the SS1 1400 is a Weber 28/30 DFTH with single 8mm feed stub. Original equipment on "Late" 1600 or those fitted with the Lea...

SE5a Body Off Resto

Hefty clout with a rubber mallet. Should give a soft enough contact face not to cause any point loading and hence risk damage, whilst imparting enough force to beak it free from any stiction If you can whack something free in the correct direction, then in theory you can't actually hit it too hard. ...

No Jim, it's the sole return line for a 1400 with a dfth or a late 1600 with a TLDM.

I did post the part number on the thread by Joscac

I'll give you the likeness Steve. But you are barking up the wrong tree. The back story is one of a creative owner using what was available in Soviet times to keep an old car going. It's quite different from what it was originally but I think there is enough likeness remaining for someone to figure ...

Bradbury Four Post Lift

All this talk is exciting the itch to "raise the roof" on the garage here. I've found it leaks, so it's day's are numbered. As per Craig's suggestion, if it's a wheels free type, why 4 post rather than 2 post Brian? If balance is a concern, you can always pop a few extra loaves in the boot to balanc...

Brake pedal bringing on brake light switch

Also worth just pulling the OSF inner pad out to check that it definitely is ok. Could be that the wire loop inside it is not set as deep as you expect. The minute it is exposed it makes a circuit via the disk and return wire connected to the tag on the caliper. Looked back at my files and the repai...
