The "Mighty" SE6 - New Year, New Plans

I have an early BL key and complete ignition that I used to plug into your car to start it when the ignition played up some years ago. Turned out to be the ignition switch that time. I may have a switch in the garage but not known if it's a good one or not. I seem to remember Corky supplying me an i...

Essex head gasket failed?

If the garage did a "sniff test" and the liquid in the tester did not turn green then the head gasket is more than likely OK. Not wishing to teach granny how to suck eggs but it could be that your system is not being topped up correctly. You should make sure that the heater control is set to hot whe...

Propshaft Query

When I removed the prop shaft on my SE6 I just drained the gearbox. Easy really.

Hidden evil

did you cut the hole using an axe?
Grinder actually, and the edges are neat and follow the contour of the floor down the wheel arch and across the top of the sill removing just enough to put the plate in and weld it to the bar. Good enough for me as I'm far from an expert.

Hidden evil

I wonder if mine was a later amendment as it's a 79 car. It could be as mine was a 1976 SE6 so a much earlier model. The plate at the bottom of the stiffening hoop (it's not meant to be a roll over bar) goes down inside the fiberglass sill then the two bolts go through the plate inside the sill and...

Here is a photo (not a very good one but the only one I have) of the plate at the bottom of the tube that has two bolts through it that you cant see as they are down in the cavity, one in the side rail and the other rear wheel side of the chassis cross tube. The bolt you can see in the plate is the ...

Electric fan failure

If you connect both wires on the switch on the radiator and the fan runs then the likely culprit is the switch.

speedo cable

I had a replacement for my 1976 SE6 from here https://speedycables.com/ You may have to send them what cable pieces you have left to get the correct fittings.

PAS tie rod/steering arm removal ?

Sounds like yo need to put some heat to the nut and then use a Freeze and ease spray. It may help to get two nuts on the thread and lock them up first to give you some where to put another spanner.

Overlord
Not heard of a Reliant overlord before, looks like an SE5. Are you sure it's not a Reliant Scimitar with the GTE Overdrive lettering on the rear right hand quarter above the rear lights.

The "Mighty" SE6 - New Year, New Plans

The way it's wired at the moment it shows the Otter switch is working. The fan comes on when otter is in operation and when the otter cools it stops the fan and light goes out. If light stays on for a longer time than normal it would suggest the fan hasn't cut in which would mean the fan has stopped...
