SE5 with V8 engine for sale

good morning, I too pass on my sympathies and can imagine that there are plenty of reasons for potentially wanting to move on the vehicle. Everyone's circumstances are different. But I do have an opinion regarding this which may or may not be useful to you. I am no expert on Scimitars but I am strug...

Fuel pump/ lack of fuel

good morning,

i have tried to attach a picture which may help your question. is this the same as your tank? then again it may just add confusion if it is different!

Engine Rebuild Novice

good morning, personally i have always used a cam lube (sort of grease based lube) on cams and new bearings and a home brew of engine oil and STP (blue one) for other touching surfaces.. but not sure its totally necessary, i feel better knowing that when the engine turns (under its own power or not)...

Ebay Se5a

SE6a USM 99T

its been a while but i have been using the car a little over the last few months with a few niggles one of which was the fact that the auto box sump was leaking after my filter and fluid change. i couldn't find a torque setting for the gearbox sump bolts (is there one?) so just nipped up to 8ft/lb. ...
