'88 SS1 1600 #1314 in SW London

This looks a fine original car indeed!

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scimitar-SS1 ... 4001716450

If anyone on here buys it I am happy to lend them my "magic manual starter motor" that will most likely unseize it...

Body tub removal

Sounds like you still need to do the bolts on top of trans tunnel just behind centre console.

Also, bonnet cable if you haven't taken that out yet

You're welcome to voice such ideas at the drivers meeting.

Be prepared to come away with a new admin based past time though!

Looking for a project SS1

I have always pitched the 1600 as the gateway SS1. Most abundant, simple and good all round. Practice what I preach, first SS1 was a non galvanized 16 in fabulous condition, followed by a galvanized 1300 that was straightforward to return to the road, followed by an 1800ti that turned out to be quit...

Aux belt clearance issue

Just for completeness, here is the other type that I mention with the GMB Japan cast body. Easily identified by the core plug in the neck section. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lockheed-Water-Pump-DD1211-Ford-Escort-Mk3-XR3-81-86-Fiesta-Mk1-XR2-83-86-CVH/292775407189?hash=item442ac62e55:g:rD8AAOSwo3taw...

Looking for a project SS1

I would avoid that green Ti and buy something together and functioning of you are new to them. Picking up the pieces of someone else's stalled project is much easier after your first time around. Budget 1-2k and find yourself something you can drive home, they are all "projects" if you're the fiddli...

Looking for a project SS1

The Nissan CA18ET is a cracking engine when it works. But when it doesn't it's a frustrating expensive bar steward. You can buy half a dozen CVH gasket sets for the price of one ET set. There are also no scarce or fragile parts on a CVH. Horses for courses really. If you want performance, get an1800...

Looking for a project SS1

There was an advert for three project SS1s in previous slice mag on the south coast. All galvanized chassis if that is a must (Nick's suggested requirement not mine!) I suspect one of these is the white 1300 just sold on eBay in past weeks. That red 1300 in Scotland looks an excellent buy. Originali...

That will go over a grand I expect.

Well, maybe if he adds some more pictures.... Or maybe if he doesn't!?!

Is it belonging to GeoffP67? Location and picture surrounding send about right...

Aux belt clearance issue

The design of the "cranked elbow" water pumps does vary depending on manufacturer. That one is not ideal. Best course of action if you don't fancy changing the pump is probably to strap the pipes out the way as best you can and to protect any vulnerable areas with a thin strip of aluminium fixed aro...

G130 YCF my first sprint car

That is the joy of the Quaife. No need to alter the driveshafts, just a straight swap. The tripod joints are strong and reliable enough when used through their normal range of movement. If for some reason you did want bolt on libro joints with hybrid shafts then you can buy the flanges from Quaife t...
