Ford's SS1

Got the new pump, tensioner, and belt on today. Cleaning up every bolt along the way. Front of the pulley is painted ready to go on tomorrow if it's not too dark. Also got the upper steering column removed. Both of the top bolts had completely stripped threads, so I'll be getting new ones. Have got ...

Ford's SS1

Got the front crossmember, pulley, waterpump, tensioner, etc., off today. Tomorrow will be cleaning up the block, and putting on new pump, tensioner, belt. Also going to see where the alternator sits best and measure up a new belt. Haven't looked properly, but does Z32 seem about right? Found a leak...

Thanks, I'll stick with that one then.
Any tips on the crankcase ventilation and ignition/steering lock would be helpful for the next couple of days work

Ford's SS1

Well I feel a bit silly for not realising that, it's pretty obvious after having another look. Just noticed it's 1 year today since I joined the forum! :hurrah: I don't seem to have taken many photos recently. Here's one of the tank in, but before I'd put the strap bolts in, which are now done. 5.jp...

Looking for a new water pump, but the ones I've found with a suitable angle outlet look like they also have a second outlet pointing towards the rear of the engine, which my current pump doesn't.

Ford's SS1

Haven't had much time to work on the car recently after starting a new job at the beginning of Sept. A few weekends ago I got the handbrake in, and today put the rear brakes and pipes all on properly. Got the bolts into the back of both tank straps today and it started to bucket it down. Still hopin...

2m is just enough, costs a few pounds per metre.

Car history

Mines a bit shorter...

Got my driving licence in 2007, bought an SS1 1600 in 2017, still haven't driven it :cry:

If motorbikes count, I've ridden a Honda CB125S since about 2013, but only ever done CBT (now expired again), never got round to getting a full licence.

1600 SS1 restoration log

Why did Reliant use 2 inch bolts to hold the straps on - a half an inch would be plenty. If you ever fit a new tank with new rubber under the straps, you’ll realise that half an inch would be impossible to start on the threads - fine on something that’s settled over the last 30 years perhaps :D I h...
