Seat Diaghragms

Found the invoice in my paper pile.
Bought from ANG as an un-branded item, but it has the manufacturer's part number AHA7878.
Bought from the ANG Ebay shop.

Seat Diaghragms

I found an MGB diaphragm which fitted the frame of my SE6a quite well.
Drilling of additional holes in the frame was needed and the clips were replaced. If I remember correctly they came as a kit with the rubber.

Engine, preserving for long term storage?

I am in the process of winterising my boat engine and will be using ACF 50 on exposed surfaces. It comes as a spray for larger areas but for especially vulnerable components it is also available as a grease. Advice to dry out waterways seems sound. Unfortunately no help to me because the engine is s...

Engine misfire, & cutting out, ask the Guru,s.

I had the same symptoms with my '76 SE6a. After going through the obvious steps of checking for fuel vaporisation, air leaks at the carburettor etc. I turned to the ignition system, changing the coil and ballast resistor. The only thing remaining was the electronic ignition so I replaced the Lucas s...

Road Tax Help

You need to change the taxation class from PLG to "Historic Vehicle" which I think is a case of filling out the relevant section of the V5C, and handing it in at the Post Office: https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles/apply-for-vehicle-tax-exemption They should be able to give you a free tax disc, se...

Not exactly a bright spark.

To close the loop on this, problem solved. In the last few weeks I have been concentrating on launching my boat so the Scimitar has been neglected. I just pretended it wasn't in the garage as I dragged out sails, outboards and the rest. Anyway, the boat is now on its mooring so I turned to the car o...

Not exactly a bright spark.

To clarify, the earth ring was reattached to the wiper body when I put everything back together.

Not exactly a bright spark.

Thanks for your observations. Much appreciated. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the ring terminal with a black wire might be needed to be earthed (originally bolted to the wiper motor per chance?) for the electronic ignition. The ring terminal did go to an earth strap on the wiper body. T...

Not exactly a bright spark.

Ok. I confess. It was me. The car was running sweetly before I decided to tidy up the engine bay. I took the wiper motor off and before removing the coil I took a pic to remind me what went where. I also labelled the leads to various terminals: 20180324_142422.jpg On putting everything back together...

Fuel pipe fittings?

I replaced the lines front to rear with Kunifer, a bit of a struggle but that should last forever.I made all the connections with Andy’s Biohose with the correct stainless clips.Hopefully that will last a long time. I was never a real fan of the nylon pipe and it would be pretty old by now anyway. ...

Brush-painting

Another with memories of RePaint. I did a mini which was given to me because the rear subframe was lace. After replacing the subframe I painted the thing in orange and found I had a suprisingly solid little motor. The RePaint did its job but selling the car was near-impossible whith prospective buye...

I have one but can't remember if the actuating arm/heel is the same shape as the one in your picture.
I will dig it out tonight and take a photo.

Workshop heater - recommendations

I use a 4Kw Eberspacher deisel powered blown air heater. It was originally from a GPO van and went into my boat for a couple of years before I upgraded. It runs of a 12v battery and a can of fuel. The exhaust goes through a hole in the wall, so dry heat. They are available as kits from new but also ...
