SE5 front wheel bearings

I found exact Timken replacements after having a lot of trouble with some others I had purchased. A bit of digging and you can find the part numbers on eBay :)

The SE5a learning curve! - still alive!

We've seem some absolutely horrendous attempts by other businesses. Many bring us their "retrimmed" parts for us to strip completely and do correctly. My favourite restoration recently was a MK1.

Hi Will :) hope you're well. I got them off eBay for £40 a pair. I'm sure you can get them cheaper, but with so much to trawl through on eBay I just picked the most appealing ones :)

Thanks Mike! How's your car doing? Yes indeed, still a great deal of buttery goodness going on. I was gutted not to be at Curborough this year; quite glad though as it later developed that a wheel bearing was about to be very mischievous! Suspension rebuild has been a lot of fun, and a fantastic bit...

Morning all! I've been away from here for a good while, but working on Flora has always remained a constant. Had lots of career developments keeping me far too busy! I'm currently rebuilding the front suspension; had some interesting developments from 45 year old untouched components, but all going ...

Re: The SE5a learning curve! - Boot lock removal

Hi Pommy! Thanks for your response! I see what you're saying :) although, did yours look like the one in the diagram? Here's (a very rubbish) photo of mine; it doesn't have a hole for the retaining pin like the diagram below; rather the only available pin appears to be the one I've circled in the ph...

Re: The SE5a learning curve! - Boot lock removal

Re: Coleford Festival of Transport 2017

What a fantastic first ever show in Flora! I'm chuffed to have posted this advert, having met Peter, Mark and I believe a "kitty-hawk" if anyone knows him on here. Thanks for your time chatting away gents, definitely made a great day even better. The old girl drove like a dream; my buddies 65 mustan...
