Classic & Sports Car Review

No such thing as bad publicity! This paragraph is spot on IMHO: 'For today’s buyer, the GTE offers exclusivity, durability, practicality and a great sporting feel. Costly insurance disappeared when classic policies were born. ‘Catching fire’ was always unfair, resulting from a long-cured Ford V6 car...

SE6A rebuild stuck

what i do is break it down into small jobs, if you've got an evening to spend on it just plan one job to do and go do that, then plan the next one, next time do that one, and so on - every big job is just a series of small jobs - eventually you get to the point where there are no jobs left to do .....

Superpro Bush Kit - Review

I fitted Superflex to the front of my SE6A 2-3 years ago and am very pleased. The new bushes have sharpened up steering, stopped a few untoward creaks and clonks from the front suspension and there's no sign of harshness. For road use, some 'competition spec' bushes are ...

1967 coupe V6

That's good for the money he's asking. Hope the car finds a good home.

I fancy a V6 coupé. Trouble is, I've just bought another Triumph, so no funds and no space now!

Essex head gasket failed?

I saw an SE6A at a local car show recently with an alloy coolant expansion tank. It looked very neat and had a clear plastic sight tube so you can see the coolant level without needing to squint in through the cap. The owner fitted it a couple of years ago and seemed pleased with it. Search eBay for...

SE5a - the roller coaster ride continues

Others have already made useful suggestions. Certainly fuel vapour locking is quite common in warm weather. Rust inside the fuel tank is another possibility. Coarse particles should be caught by inline filters but fine stuff can still get through to the carb. It affects the idle circuits first, as t...

MW/LW radio

Why not get an early FM radio, Blaupunkt were among the first? Today, originals are available with added aux input to plug in phone music as well as radio, can be found on eBay.

SE6a Petrol cap

If you can get a sound cap assembly with poor chrome, they can be replated. The pot metal flap on my GT6 filler has been successfully rechromed by ACF Howell in Walsall.

Se6a calliper kits- compatibly

AFAIK , SE6A Lockheed calipers are the same as Triumph Stag.

Agree that Bigg Red are a great supplier for brake parts. Sometimes it is almost as cheap to order their refurbished calipers, rather than buying the parts for DIY rebuild.

Cooling fan run time

Mine comes on and off regularly and the time on becomes longer if I am stuck in traffic for a long time. But as long as the engine does not overheat it does not matter how long its on or off. That's exactly how the fan operates on my SE6A. I've never know the fan to come on while moving at speed, a...

Standard tyre sizes

Apparently, there are 2 widths available. Early cars used 5.5", later they went to 6". Got this from the Moss catalogue. The earlier 5.5" rims used 165/80 15 tyres, while the 6" rims should have 185/80 15 tyres. 195/65 15 will fit either rim and won't change turns per mile/Speedo reading much. Nigel

You couldn’t make it up could you

I wonder long long it will be before its put on a trailer so you can travel and keep your electric car charged at all times A case of technology going full circle perhaps, rather like the diesel-electric railway locomotives of the late Fifties/early Sixties:
