V6 essex timing gear

Sorry for the slow response. For the extra effort, I’d remove the lines and take the opportunity to have a quick look at the fuel pump too.

New door locks

Thanks Joe, that’s on my ever growing list of things to buy now!

Another tangent from me, is there a list which shows which bits are compatible with bits from other cars to save me asking you all lots of questions?

Thanks again,
Chris

Oil pump

Hello, I’ve found that I need to change my timing gear as it’s of the fibre variety. Whilst I’m ‘in there’, I was thinking of looking at what else I can do and my mind went to the oil pump. Is this a problem item? Should ai be looking at something like the Burton high pressure pump as an upgrade or ...

New door locks

Ignition lock is shared in common with an MG Midget. I just took a look at Midget ignition locks and they do look the same, but there’s a lot of different model numbers knocking around. Are they all the same? Is it the whole mechanism, i.e. the steering lock as well, or just the ignition lock? Than...

New gear kit sourced and on its way
Hello,

Just took the fuel pump off and looked at the timing gear and it looks like a fibre gear. Fibre’s clearly a no-no, steel seems to have some issues, so what’s the drawback with alloy?

What gear type did you get Dave and where from?

Thanks,
Chris

New door locks

I was slow up the uptake there, BL is British Leyland. That’s great, new handles ordered now. I just need to sort out the ignition now. I seem to be struggling to get any response by email from the two main parts suppliers, I guess I’ve got to find an opportunity to phone them whilst at work. Is thi...

New door locks

Hello,

Thank you for the information. I'm struggling to find anything which matches the description though.

Is it easier to buy a barrel or a complete handle and lock kit?

Thanks,
Chris

Classic car keys cut from codes

Company was really good, keys delivered in no time and at a good price. Sadly the door locks seem to be knackered, but the boot lock works like a charm now.

Thanks again,

New door locks

Hello,

I’m looking for a pair of new door locks and an ignition lock for my ‘72, SE5A. I’m struggling to find what to look for and both QRG and Walkers have gone quiet on me. Where’s the best spot to get them from?

Thank you,
Chris

Se5a Quarterlight seal - Remanufactured!

Hello,

Sorry to ressurect an old thread.

Was a stable supply of the quarterlight seals established or is it a case of waiting until a sufficient number of people are brought together to do a new manufacturing run?

Thanks,
Chris
