Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

I had a SE5a gearbox repeatedly jump out of third on acceleration. It had a selector fork just like the one in the second pic.

I brazed up the wear then carefully filed down until everything was flush to where it should have been. Slightly crude repair, but it never jumped out of gear again.

MOT

Interesting, didn't know that - thanks. Either way, I think declaring SORN on my Sabre for a few weeks then registering it as VHI on 20th May might be the way ahead in my case. Suppose the only thing is what degree of embuggerance will be encountered on or soon after 20th May in getting things regis...

MOT

I didn't think you had to declare SORN when an MOT runs out - only when tax expires. In fact that's the only point I've ever done it. But I did wonder if your solution might work Philip - so long as you are able to declare SORN at any stage, not just at tax renewal times? I've just had a look at the...

MOT

I'm in exactly the same position. The situation seems less than clear, and the nearest to an answer I've found is on p80 para 20 of the latest Slice where it refers to this. It seems that if DfT do nothing to tweak the system, you have to wait until the tax is due and then declare the car as VHI (si...

MOT fail....

Question - in May, I understand cars over 40 years will be MoT exempt. I though MOT exemption for 40 year old vehicles was last year, or am I mistaken. Regards Terry H 1185 20th May 2018 Terry. Also interested in Mark's question about lapsed MOTs - not sure I've seen clarification on this point, bu...

Coupe wheels Warrington to Hampshire - or in between

I've just bought the set of four Coupe wheels with tyres which were on the Facebook page from Darryl Crosby in Warrington. I'm in mid-Hampshire. Before I drive all the way up there or try uShip or something - any chance there's someone who could collect from Warrington and get them a bit nearer Hamp...

Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

Yes indeed, Shelsley Walsh insisted on a nose/bonnet number as well as the door numbers a few years ago. Of course I hadn't clocked this so it was out with the insulating tape:

Straight Six Coupe Axle for sale

Are the S6 and V6 Coupe axles the same dimensions? I assume they are. I have a spare V6 Coupe 7HA axle which I fitted to my Sabre Six temporarily a few years ago and it was slightly wider than the Sabre one. Not much - about 3/4 inch either side IIRC - and my wheels still fitted under the arches OK,...
