SS1 Suspension - considerations

Well, new standard front springs are better than old sagged and sh*gged ones. But cost wise the last I checked there isn't much between standard from RPW or the likes, and uprated from me.

I'll drop you a PM later Andy, may be able to sort something out.

SS1 Electric window switch

Ahhh, crossing of wires. I was dealing with someone over electric window motors in the week, thought the text was from him.

Mirror switch is a different story.

Your mobile number duly saved to phone Mark. ahem.

Disappearing Power!!! SS1

Even a bad picture should help! The vast majority of SS1 1600's were fitted with the Lucas distributor. Shorter, with black cap retained by screws. The 1300 and 1400 were fitted with the longer Bosch unit with usually a brown or orange clip on cap. But over time people do of course change parts. Ass...

SS1 Electric window switch

Thanks for the explanation. The search continues, but I shall file those under "possible". To be honest the Torrix switches are pretty cr*p, I have a box full of s/h ones I wouldn't trust (and therefore won't sell) so finding an off the shelf replacement would be great. There's nothing wrong with el...

SS1 Suspension - considerations

Front shocks would be best changed. The rears if functioning can be left alone, for now at least.

Normally this is the point where I would offer suitable front springs but I have none in stock. A new batch is well over due but I have been playing with the spec again....

SS1 Electric window switch

Just digging this up, I don't suppose anyone got any further with the suggestions above? Why were the ones from the UK supplier not suitable "old bean"?

New V6 (Essex) ALLOY cam timing gear sets

Due to a much greater delay than expected with the shipping on the first six they won't be here till June. I should hopefully have the other six sets in hand by the beginning of May. Hopefully there should be a tighter control on timings next time, as I realise this is frustrating for anyone banking...

Disappearing Power!!! SS1

It is a circulating system, away from heat. Never had fuel evaporation problems with any in my experience. Perhaps worth draining the fuel and checking there is no water in there which is a common SS1 problem.The settling out and then emulsion of water through circulation can give similar symptoms t...

Manny's SS1 1600

One of my 1800ti was stamped on the NS. Can't say I checked them all either!

Let's not expect too much consistency from Reliant.

Manny's SS1 1600

Apart from those examples where it is on the NS !

But yes that 4 digit tacked on tag is found on the NS and I'm not sure what purpose they served as they don't correspond to the chassis serial number / VIN.

But Jim is right, you will most likely find your actual VIN stamped on the other side.

That's not the chassis stamp of VIN / serial number but an ID tag as found on some galv chassis'.

Slather the bits in copper slip.

If it's a struggle to get the nut on, use a jack under the head of the bolt to compress. Or shorten the inner sleeve, which is something that may be required if using cheaper pattern parts that are slightly too long, or on cars that are excessively lowered....

Only the top spec Fords got the coolant level switch. We take it for granted in SS1s

Both frames the same type? Profile of the frame changed at some point. Give away is the mounting screws for the cowls. 3 on early frame and 2 on later.
