Ford's SS1

Or fit a catch tank?

Is there a circlip on the back of the ignition barrel that allows you to pull out the innards and swap over (if that’s all that’s wrong with yours)? Edit - ignore that, just read through war and peace to see that it was smashed :D

I wonder if FDV 655C should read FDU 655C too?
I did have that thought too, so checked both :D

DU was Coventry, DV was Exeter.

Is that for the crack it is possible to repair that?
yes, cut it open, remove rust, replace with new metal if you wish (some have filled it with GRP) and glue body back on - simples :D

Body of my Se5a

have you just replaced the seals recently? plenty of room for improvement on the alignment - but it takes ages!

bad news on the cracks - that's the steelwork corroding and expanding behind the GRP.

20psi coolant pressure?

The first question is - why? Do you have a problem with localised boiling? 50/50 antifreeze boils at 106 (ish) deg and pressurising it to 14psi brings it up to 125 deg - the average temp in the block is 90 deg, so what's the max local temps? Overall, if it was designed at 14psi, I'd be reluctant to ...

Hi there

Jeremy Phillips is Sylva (Autokits/Fisher/Raw/etc) but if you have it rear mounted with a FWD gearbox I’d hazard a guess at a J15 or a Mojo?

Interestingly there’s a Scimitar link there somewhere, you’ll find Iain Daniels’ address under the name of the new owner of Sylva (David MacBean).

MGB wheels on SE5A ?

They’re 185 tyres and look fairly wide against the wheel - so they will only be 6” max I reckon?

do we need a drivers meeting at all? The SSSC is simply acedemic now.
The changes to the regs could probably be agreed remotely but we should at least find time to present the SSSC pots this year as I suspect it’s now too late to organise it at the CM dinner and dance?
