Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

Tonight’s teaser: Here we have two selector forks. One has done about 30,000 miles in my spare gearbox. The other is out of the SE5a which has a habit of jumping out of gear. Do I, a) Swap the sideplates and hope for the best. b) Swap the gearboxes because the engine is out and it's a bit easier (t...

beige 'barn find' Scimitar in Luton

Stuttering / Cutting out, petrol starvation

you’ve assumed gravity feed Chris - is it a gravity feed, or is a fuel can just being used with the electric/standard pump and some of the original pipework? This is the problem with remote diagnosis. We need to remove as much as possible from the equation to nail down the primary source (fuel, elec...

Stuttering / Cutting out, petrol starvation

Jim, is there a trick to removing the carb top, the choke linkage at the carb is difficult to get at with carb still on the car, probably me but I do struggle working leaning over the engine. There’s a small C clip that you remove to disconnect the choke. If it’s too awkward, do as Phil suggests an...

ran without any problem for 20 mins then started to hesitate, vacuum reading dropped to 15, fuel still OK to the carb, then the engine just petered out,

Firstly, a huge thank you to all those who came down to the hill last Saturday, and helped with the great 'wake up Wiscombe' clean up day. Everyone did a tremendous job, and left the h...
