Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - Rear Seat

Just looked at some of those pictures. Make very sure that the white wire cannot touch the case of the motor or any other earth. Its from the ignition switch, not fused and will create mega grief in the main wiring harness at the least or worse still start a fire. Just ask Roger P. I had to spend q...

the pipe closer to the road (if ya get me) should be the return pipe. It is in mine. One way to find out is take out the sender and have a look inside. the return pipe will be the shorter one bending down into the tank. Surely you could find someone to braze on a new pipe??

I fitted the trunnion last week, I had read the sticky before i did it and its been baffling me all week how the hell the mechanism would work if the bold cannot move which mine did but only when the trunnion moved. So i have it on correctly then. happy days. Will get the other one done on saturday.
