5 /5a chassi

the crossmember under the sump changed from a tube to a flat plate when the later engine (rear sump) was fitted, also the engine mounts changed from bolt on to welded on,
in effect both are interchangable with a bit of fiddling.

Sorry Carl, I have very few FT - just 101, 172, 208 & 250.

Do you want me to send you a bunch of FS keys to try in the boot?
the fs number of the lock is on the snail cam

Reliant engineers were not too happy at having to use "a datsun engine" they told me at the time.

Reliant fitted the nissan engine as it complied with US emisions at the time, the cvh didnt,
they also looked at the omega V6 engine, for the same reason.

SE5 Filler neck hose - HELP !!

one of the main reason Reliant changed the filler was it took ages to fill the tank due to the kink in the filler pipe,

pretty sure the standard early tank differed from the later one too.
you have a bitza so could a flexy or silicon bend be used?

Probably a really easy solution

the outer ones WILL be seized, drill the heads off, the inner ones being oiled, will come out easily.
