Looking for my parent's Scimitar SE6A

no apologies needed - we don't discriminate against members that only post every couple of years :P

Did the SE6 registrar get back to you? My old version of the register says that it appeared on EBay at some time. There's no date on there. so it wasn't added by me, which means it's post early 2010.

water in sump

sounds like it's the inlet manifold. I'd certainly replace the gasket and try it before doing anything else?

pop-up headlights

Lancia had the same problem - I thought they just had moving eyebrows but I’m not so sure from this picture?

2 rod gearbox upgrade and removal

Having done all that you only need to disconnect two engine mounts and you can take the engine and box out on your own rather than struggling underneath with a gearbox!

You also reduce the risk of damaging the spigot bearing when you refit the box.

pop-up headlights

pop-up headlights
