Has the spacer disintegrated/worn?

There’s a pic with dimensions somewhere.

New purchase Se5

Still looks quite high - are they fixed length shocks?

ETA - well done on the body off resto, I’ve seen dozens abandoned over the years.

Further edit - see you in Le Mans :D

Ti starting woes

Double check any earth terminals under the dash. It definitely sounds as if there’s something loose near the steering column.

Hmmm nice allways liked mk2 jags

I do like modern mechanicals under an original skin but the bumpers and gills aren’t doing it for me?

Love the interior though.

The Snotty Swan

No, the VW rads I’ve shown on the previous page, have inlet & outlet on the same side. For the Ti or K series, this removes the need for the crossover pipes. For the CVH it’s simple enough to run the thermostat outlet pipe in the opposite direction to standard, or crossover at the rad as per Ti/K.

Which totally failed to answer the question :D The petition was: “Make it illegal for manufacturers to process vehicles which have Historic Vehicle on their V5 documents though any scrappage scheme.

Sadly these all went to the great scrapyard in the sky a long time ago. :(
Are you sure? I’d heard there were old airfields full still?

Maybe take it for a drive and confirm if all 4 brakes are getting hit or just front/back?

brakes getting stucked

I can’t imagine how something inline could be an anti-knock back device, without continually keeping pressure in the system?

Was it inline with the front or rear brakes?

Sounds like a proportioning valve to me - limiting pressure to the rear brakes with a simple spring?

A check of the stamped chassis number on the upright would prove your theory. Unfortunately there are dozens of examples thanks to the free Historic VED (at least it’s not an SE6a on a pre 73 reg!) Here it is with the vinyl roof - owner listed as Mr Ian Houghton on sporting-reliants.com http://www.s...
