SE5 OJH96H

He seems a decent enough chap.I bought his old heads a couple of weeks ago, nothing much wrong with them. We spoke about the 5, he said he was probably going to sell it.

Seat Diaghragms

Mark, any idea what the current costs would be ? I know it's like asking how long is a piece of string, but with the age and usage of our cars, they are all likely to need them sooner or later. I have not yet checked mine, but I do use a seat cushion anyway. (please don't imagine for one minute that...

Wirings

Peter, I should have contacted you beforehand. The print has arrived and (to my eyes) the only problem on the finished print is that the symbols for the horns are a bit crude. My printshop will only take files in PSD (photoshop native) or JPEG and they convert everything else to JPEG anyway. Aren't ...

Wirings

Peter,
I hope you don't mind, but I have just run your 6a diagram through photoshop to produce a jpeg file and ordered a 30"x20" print to compensate for my failing eyesight.
Thanks once again,

Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

Does that spare bracket fit on top of of the rocker cover above cylinder 3 to hold the coolant pipe from the heater to thermostat housing? (it does on mine, whether it should or not).

MOT exemption

Trevor, I can see that you are asking about the legal requirements, but don't you think it would be a good idea to have the car MOT'd after such a lay-up history? Although the test on my current 6a has expired, it has been in use (1500 miles in 15 months) and it 'feels' safe to drive, but I will be ...

Stolen cameras

My word skills have never been fantastic. The message I failed to get over is... Ffordes have a secure location just outside Inverness with a decent security system in place. They openly advertise their location and the value of their toys. Now that the year has moved on to longer nights, many of ou...

Stolen cameras

I am sorry to raise an issue not related to Reliants' finest. Many of you will use serious cameras to record your prized possessions. Like our treasured traders who keep us on the road, Ffordes (a specialist in supplying classic cameras) are highly valued by the photographic fraternity. I am sad to ...
