1971 SE5 - Rear Axle 7HA / 4HA

Hello folks, Could someone please confirm which axle I should have fitted to my '71 SE5? I believe it is supposed to be the 7HA, is this correct? How can I check? I believe that the 4HA was fitted after '72 to the SE5a, is this correct? I also believe that the 4HA is a stronger axle, is this also co...

Is a 5A improved over a 5 ?

In essence, the two are so close that you won't be dissapointed with either. :)

Tidworth Incident.....

There were a couple of events held thereat the odd weekend. I was working in the Hangar next to the 'paddock' area one weekend.
I heard that they were stopped due to the amount of FOD left behind after the event.

Tidworth Incident.....

Ah, up round by EFDC/NDT building? I've been at Boscombe on and off since 1991!

Scimitar is looking very smart by the way. The matt black bonnet doesn't look too bad either,

Tidworth Incident.....

Wish I'd seen this post earlier, you were in my neck of the woods (I work at Boscombe Down). Would have been nice to remind myself what a complete Scimitar is like.

Scimilar to our Scimitars, the intakes on that Scimitar cockpit are reproductions made of fibreglass! :)

Will an SE5A Srut Brace fit the SE5?

Clearance with the fixed lower cros-member isn't and issue. On the Jag V6 the water pump is external to the block and is mounted in front of the engine, it's even further forward than the accessories belt. The pump itself passes under the cross-member but the top pire connection points straight up a...

Will an SE5A Srut Brace fit the SE5?

Thanks for the quick reply. The tinwork bracket I would cut off. It is for clearance for the new engines front monted water pump. It would mean I wouldn't have to mount the engine quite so far back in the car giving a bit more space for the exhaust manifolds near the foot wells. I think it might be ...

Will an SE5A Srut Brace fit the SE5?

Hello folks,

As the title asks, will the cranked SE5A strut/cross brace fit straight into the SE5?

If so, does anyone knoe how much it cranks forward? Or better still, have an overhead photo that shows how much extr clearance the cranked version gives?

Cheers for any help,

Smiler.

Chassis modifications for roll cage fitment?

Thanks everyone for all of the replies. It makes for interesting reading. It'll take a while to get the car built anyway so I guess I'll see what happens when the time comes. I'm not bothered about being competitive in whatever class I'm put into in whatever I enter, I'll only be looking to have som...

Chassis modifications for roll cage fitment?

Thanks for all the replies. Wow, this really getting quite involved. I perhaps need to do a little more research and speak to the local venues as to what I can enter into. Either way I would want to fit a cage to protect me and it would be silly to go to all that trouble and not have it MSA compliant.

Chassis modifications for roll cage fitment?

Thanks, a six-point was what I was leaning towards. So long as I have space to fit in it. I am 6'2" and head room is a bit limited without a cage. I have a pair of MX5 seats to go in (original were long gone, replaced with some unknown worn out seats) and will look into lowering the floor to try to ...
