Re: Joe's Scimitar 1972 GTE 5a Restoration

I don't know about charging capacitors, My rev counter will not budge from zero unless I give it a good bit of revs after starting up. If I leave it ticking over it wont come off zero. I think Its just a bit sticky?? might swap it over with a spare I have.

Re: What do you tow with your Scimitar?

My Dad has one of these fold up caravans in the shed. I've never seen it opened though. he bought a few years ago and never used it. Might get it out and see if it still works.

Re: Speedys 1975 se5a

Yes I agree but I think eBay will do nothing to help. A legal route would probably be the only way.

Compressing Springs

After watching this video i thought id give it a go with some old SE6 disks I have. The holes for the studs on the disk are quite small so drilled them out to 10mm. then got some threaded bar of similar size. Cant believe how easy it really was. The collets that hold in the spring to the shock are j...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - ICE Update

Iv been busy the last week or so. Mostly making work for myself but got some jobs done too. Steering rack arrived - yes this is the 3rd one in 5 months :roll:. The one I got last month has some play in the inner tie rod socket so the guys that supplied it sent me out a new one next day. What a grea...

This is in the wrong forum, why did you put it in jokes when it should obviously be in the "Forum Issues" section ! :D

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration -ICE Update

Well a small ICE Update... I got the rear panel off this evening to try and fit the rear speakers. face to face the new speakers are the same size as the old ones but they do not fit directly in. I had to cut about 5mm around the edge of the hole for the speaker. http://i599.photobucket.com/albums/t...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - PAS Rack AGAIN!!

Rear Seatblets, they don't get used anyway - they are way too small for anyone to fit into! Don't have to worry about any MOT either, my car is Exempt from testing over here ;) Just got off the phone with the company that supplied the PAS rack that was fitted just a month ago. They believe that the ...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - More ICE and Trunnion Woes

sounds as if you have an aftermarket 3 point fitted? Yes they are 3 point read seat-belts I think they are standard, but as you couldn't fit a small child into them id suspect they may have been fitted by someone who was very skinny!! I'll hopefully replace them with something larger. Attacked the ...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - More ICE and Trunnion Woes

Removing the rear panel is a bit of a pain. You have to remove the bottom of the rear seat, remove the seatbelt at the back of the rear window, undo the screws holding the panel to the floor, unscrew the cover for the rear seat lock, remove the wire for the heated windscreen, the bolt for the bottom...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - More ICE and Trunnion Woes

I think its about 5 1/2 to 6". There is nothing behind it except the outer body skin. The speakers tilt upward there as the body curves in on the outside so hopefully I will have enough clearance for the deeper speakers. If not then some round spacers should give enough clearance. The new speakers I...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - More ICE and Trunnion Woes

Well with the great weather we are having its a great time to get some work done :) I've had some nice speakers donated to the cause from a friend. They will fit nicely in the doors with an adapter, and should fit directly into the rear seat panels without any modification. Still have to get some bo...
