Wtd SE5 / 5a

Gerry's car is still available on for sale ( not cheap but worth it ) but you would have to be quick as the cars now on carandclassic and he has had two calls in two days.

SS1 Brake shoe Part No ???

Nice to hear it Steve - just in case you do not know the drums are "Reliant specials" and the club traders have nil stock until they get some more made. Nigel has a few used ones though if you are desperate.

SS1 Brake shoe Part No ???

Had you ordered them from the club traders you could have fitted them by now - is it worth the effort trying to find them a little bit cheaper elsewhere - and risk getting the wrong ones like Jhdelta

SS1 Brake shoe Part No ???

As a added comment the friction material on one of the shoes was a lot shorter than on the original shoes ( about 35 to 40mm ) but on fitting the handbrake was much better. The shoes I removed did not have enough wear to explain the difference in the performance.

Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

The regulator has to be connected to the battery +ve for it to see what the voltage at the battery is. Doing the connection via the ignition lamp shows that when the alternator is working the output from the alternator is the same as the voltage on the battery - both being the same means the light w...

Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

Solenoid +ve is the same as the battery +ve. The regulator should be connected to the battery +ve via the ignition lamp - no idea where your spade connects to but suspect it is a AC output and therefore does not connect to the battery. Do you not have some instructions with the alternator - or can y...

Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

The small stud is marked as "single phase" so I guess that's the carb choke AC connection which leaves the "D" as the connection to the ignition lamp. No sign of a spade connection in that drawing.

Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

The large stud definitely goes directly to the battery - you will have to look up the other two on the alternator data sheet. The spade ( or the small stud ) connector could be a connection for a electric choke - if for the battery sense then it has to connect via the ignition switch. Normally the s...
