ss1 classic targa rally car

Are they both blowing at the same time? With or without the lights turned on (if so, which lights)?

ss1 classic targa rally car

Good stuff :D

Cut the crossmember and fit a removable one, to allow sump removal in-situ.

Is it an aftermarket eBay fan? Probably pulling too much power and blowing the fuse.

Is the fuel cap vented? Only early cars should be vented caps, later cars have a vent behind the boot liner.

Where is CRE 801 E ?

I thought it was split and the body appeared on eBay at least twice?

Refitting a 6a Gearbox

Nearly always quicker to remove the engine and box complete, then split/reassemble on the bench IME.

At last! I have my SE5 back!

I think I have a spare coupe heater motor (which I think are the same as the 5) - will check this week. You need a late upper cross tube with the kink for the extra pulley. You don’t need a later lower crossmember (it won’t fit your SE5), you just remove the tubular bolt-in crossmember that’s curren...

1990 SS1 Netherlands

Looks like 11-XR-LG to me - and RHD. €1950 is optimistic IMO for something that doesn’t run properly and obviously needs lots of work, even for mainland Europe. Happy to deliver half a dozen cars in the same condition if they’ll sell at that price :D 40995ECA-7336-41F2-B0AF-D512FC85032D.png 3AF0BBCF...

At last! I have my SE5 back!

Hi I have already pulled the top cross member at the front of the block that is above the fan, do you mean a lower cross member? Yes, the lower crossmember on an early car can be removed to clear the sump of a later engine. I also through the 5 and 5a cross brace - the tubular part between the susp...
