SE5A Project - Swindon

Thanks Jim, that makes a lot of sense. As you know it was that dark brown originally. As one of the last SE5a's, it sat around in the showroom and did not sell for a while, not being registered till well into 1976. I understand that the SE6s were being sold by that time, so it was probably difficult...

SE5A Project - Swindon

Quite pleased this week to have finally identified the colour of my Scimitar SE5a. A non-original Russet Red (3515). Might be a BL colour from back in the day, but not really sure. However a good match for touch-ups. And now, at least I can start repairing all the stone chips and collateral damage r...

forum/ebay/swapz scammers

The Turin shroud is a scam!...Surely not.

Makes me start to think that the lock of Jesus's hair that I bought of Ebay might not be kosha!

That said, cheap Chinese auto motive parts, sold as genuine NOS, is also a worry.

Ho, hum.

Spacer for Mountney wheel

I have a rather flat (only a very small amount of dish) 14" Mountney steering wheel fitted to my SE5A. I find that its lack of dish means that it is rather close to the indicator stalk. Also the fact that it is 14", means that it obscures the speedo and rev counter. But I suspect that if I could get...

Anyone Know Anything About Differentials?

Please let us know how you get on.

I also am in possession of a 'clunk' from the rear.

Will, it certainly does. More than 500rpm, and makes for a much quieter cruise at legal speeds.

SE5A Project - Swindon

Today I investigated the non-working overdrive. I made up a long wire to connect the solenoid to +12v battery terminal and heard an audible click as it activated. I checked that there was 12v at the new dashboard switch (again), which there was. So it looks like I have an issue with either of the tw...

SE5A Project - Swindon

Back to the back axle: I was perusing my paper work over the weekend and it seems that the axle seals were changed some 10 years ago. So they are not original. I will continue to monitor the axle and any leakage. However, I have become aware of a little bit of a 'click' (as opposed to a 'big clunk')...

Well done. I look forward to seeing the pictures.

I am slowly coming to the realisation that if you really want to be sure of the condition of your chassis, it makes a great deal of sense to do a body off restore like yourselves.
