Grawpy

After a muck up with the paint order, I finally got the last panels painted today. It’s a 5 yard paint job with some imperfections on every panel (including a bl@@dy horse fly landing on the horizontal surface of the drivers door while I was putting the lacquer on!) - but it was very cheap and is al...

Camshaft kit

That part number doesn’t inspire confidence when I google it. I’d be surprised to find one that worked on every CVH from 1.1 to 1.6. Edit - although Kent say their fast road cam fits 1.3 - 1.6?

Here’s an earlier thread but it really concentrated on the 1.8 interchangeability.

Opinions on an engine rebuild - Broken Pushrod guide

IMHO the front and rear guides break because people torque the heads down with a standard socket (you need a thin-wall socket) placing undue strain on the fingers.

What to clean header tank with!

Phil, the link is for an air box! eBay has this new function where it thinks it’s smarter than you and because the listing has completed, it will show you something similar - which of course is nothing like the part you were looking for and you wanted to see the completed listing anyway! :twisted: ...

What to clean header tank with!

I haven’t seen new ones for sale for ages - the concours Ford scene paid silly prices for the last lot.

I plan to try marbles or stones along with the cleaning solution and lots of shaking (need one of those automatic paint shakers :D )

1971 Scimitar SE5A for sale, manual transmission, excellent example

Welcome to the forum :D If you’re still local, the Gloucester noggin meets on the second Tuesday of every month at the Royal William in Cranham (just a few miles from Terry Cox/Scimpart as was) if you’d like to pop along? I’d buy it back if I were you though - it’s a lovely looking car and obviously...

Cologne Water Outlet

These have appeared in the wanted section a few times but have obviously been cleared out. The only mention I can find is here in “gathering dust” where someone was asking for the elbow outlet and I said that Mark Wilson stocks the housing (presumably he had replied on a former thread?)

SS1 1600 Radiator

But that will cost more than the GW/QRG alloy rad?

Edit - the small sports rads from the traders aren’t alloy yet.

Can you not just send them your existing rad for them to copy? I have leaky spares if you need one.

Ti starting woes

I’d always super the last thing I touched and cutting out when shutting the door sounds like a loose connection. Where did you get the ignition switch from?

Yep - but only late TR3 and the 3A - early TR3 are Lockheed (as per late TR2).
