38Dgas fuel return

My original carb had a return where the carb I have now doesn't. I'm not in the position to modify my current carb & as the return line is already fitted to the car may as well use it. You can buy a t piece that has the return line restrictor already fitted. That's what I am going to use on my car w...

SE6 Propshaft UJ

With my circlip pliers deciding they wanted a break & I cant get them replaced (under warranty) till next week I decided to go with the safer option of ordering the UJ from Nigel at QRG so I have a better chance of getting the correct part the first time. At least the rusty propshaft can be cleaned ...

Tiny choke circlip

The clip was missing on the carb I got given to replace my stolen carb. Ended up getting a clip out of my radio control car spares/pit box. They are the same size as used on a team losi car I used to race so had more than a few spare parts in the box. According to the clip packet the clip I used on ...

SE6 Propshaft UJ

To try and eliminate one of the issues with my GTE the propshaft has been removed today so the rear gearbox oil seal can be changed to try & eliminate that as one of the automatic gearboxes oil leaks. I suspect the rear seal and the seal where the kickdown lever is plus a small leak from the vac mod...

Slice 287

Mine landed this morning.
Had a quick read earlier. Fingers crossed will have a better look tomorrow.

Many thanks to all that are involved with the production & best of luck to the new editor.

I really must put something on paper for inclusion at some point.

where to locate fuel pressure regulator

Mines on the bulkhead.
Previous owner thought it wasn't needed.

I didn't agree with this. Seen too many issues over the years caused by people not using a inertia switch

where to locate fuel pressure regulator

I am in the process of locating the filter king in a better place in my engine bay. The previous owner had already fitted electric fuel pump which is mounted on the under engine cross member without any insulation/mounting bobbins so is loud and annoying. I see no reason why the fuel pump cant stay ...

Recommended black sealant for screen rubber splits?

Ive been using sugru for a good few years now & it is very useful. Over time it does dry out and go harder & less flexible. That shouldn't be a problem with the uses mentioned above. I currently have a few packs of it sat in the fridge door & it always seems to get used before I have had any issues ...

SE6A centre exhaust hangers (O ring type)

The ones I have fitted don't seem to last well at all.
I would love to know if there are some better quality ones available.

GTE on Motorhog salvage

If you are right Jim that's the same colour my car was.
Nice to see what it would have looked like.
Mine might just have to end up that colour again.

GTE on Motorhog salvage

Not noticed that in the listing but its not recognised by any of the online checkers so probably not the full reg as Jiim said.

Like the colour. Not seen one that colour before.

Looks like its the name of the company selling the car.

ASM AUTO RECYCLING LTD

That car looks to be a similar colour my se6 was originally going by the blue that's showing through the paint chips on my car.

I bought another car...

I still miss my 190e that I had a few years back. Still regret the day I swapped it for a slightly newer C class. The 190 was a great car as it could be fixed with a set of screwdrivers & spanners. More or less everything was easier to fix than the later stuff that always required plugging into a co...
