Overdrive clutch type

My understanding is that the overdrive has a double cone clutch. One face at a time is engaged, while the other face is free to spin. If either face is worn out, you can experience slip , whether in direct drive or in O/D. Mine is beginning to slip slightly in direct, but not in O/D. So if you lose ...

Essex V6 Cooling discussion

Beaten by Rebel Aliance- I was going ton remark there's no need to strip the dashboard, just measure the voltage coming into the coil, both in the "run" position and in the "start" position (on the key). I don't see how the ign key wiring has anything to do with it, just trace the ballast wire (if i...

Me too. I have fitted lockstops to my 1979 SE6A with PAS because the rack does not appear to have any limits.

I think I have found where you are, South-East of Limoges. The quickest route for me would be via Macon and Roanne, is that any help?

Used Essex V6 for sale

Miles, which department are you in? I can deliver up to 200 kms away with my trailer, maybe a bit further provided I can still return home in the day. ( not free, of course :) ) As I said in the ad, we could do a half-way meet , the big problem is how to hoist an engine from one trailer to another. ...

Electrickery-mystery gadget

I can see 13C718, thanks for that David. This car was rewired completely a few years ago, so nothing corresponds to the Reliant wiring diagrams. Whoever did it obviously knew what he was doing, and added relays in all sorts of places where they would not have been originally. This cluster is behind ...

I have been trying to track down a host of problems with the interior lights, radio,door switches, etc. Judging by the state of this relay, I would say I have found the main source, but I don't know what the yellow box is. Could that be the delay timer?

Opening my silly mouth again - if you have a valve "on the rock", how can it be on compression? Surely if you set your dizzie like that it must be 180° out? N'est-ce pas?
