Essex engine problems - again

you need to have the crank measured,
the thust bearings can wear, giving front /back movement.

SE6A engine lifting....

Mark, give cazzie my regards....must have been in mid to late 80s that we used to come up in the scimitar, towing a scimitar caravan. In one trip in the lake district we all changed my failed engine mounts by brute force. Got a photo somewhere...Will try and dig it out. Sorry I don't remember much ...

SE5 clutch identification

QRG will have the correct release bearing,

its worth supporting the club traders, even if a few pounds more, no one else keeps the "odd stuff" so I dont begrudge spending a little more on other stuff.

rotate the spring so it misses.
I'm not sure you can, because of the unground ends on the springs?
