SE6a (mostly, but not all) parts

Electronic speedometer now gone - thank you. Going to help out on an interesting project.
I still have the standard one in the picture.

SE6a (mostly, but not all) parts

Well, the things that were to go to local auction are still here. The person that was to take them for me has decided it would also be good for her to clear out her loft and we can take a big load together (I can take it in her car more likely). What this means, in reality, is that my stuff will sti...

Worst car I've ever driven was

Been a while since anyone posted here..... Mine was a Chevrolet Matiz hire car about ten years ago, truly terrifying :shock: . Almost no power below 4,500rpm then everything at once - like a highly tuned 2-stroke but with terror rather than excitement. Not a car to drive around Milton Keynes when yo...

SE6a (mostly, but not all) parts

C3 auto gearbox and torque converter now collected - to be kept as a spare, hopefully never needing to be used.
Also 5 litres of ATF Type G. I still have about 10 litres of ATF left.

3.07:1 crown wheel and pinion gone as well. Thank you.

SE6a (mostly, but not all) parts

Alan, The balancer is static and has a "bullseye" spirit level on it that lines up when balanced. The spring loaded platform holds the wheel level and the cone on the centre part centralises the wheel. I bought it after having a blowout on a lorry and the guys that came to change the tyre had one in...

SE6a (mostly, but not all) parts

I am taking a load of stuff to one of the local auctions during this week but thought it only decent and polite to offer on here first - it is not all Scimitar related but a lot of it is. I will probably chuck the Essex heads and other bits in as well. I doubt they will take the C3 gearbox so it wil...

Renault Scimiter [sic] Rat Rod

I suppose the car has a kind of charm to it, sort of :?

It will be interesting to see what it makes, especially compared to Scimitars of similar age.

Se6a “number 3”

Hi Peter,

I am seriously pleased that you are doing a project thread on this car - my concern was that I would never hear or see of it again, but it looks like that is not going to happen.

The paint looks excellent, by the way :D

Mick.

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

There seems to be a lot of this about here and it is not the sort of thing that impresses me in any way but since I am testing various anti-vibration camera mounting methods I am picking up a lot of random plates. Keeping up with the "Joneses" (or whatever) aside, this one is better than most, I sup...

Renault Scimiter [sic] Rat Rod

I am still browsing for a "no work required" Scimitar, if there is such a thing and came across this on evilBay. I did actually once have some one get quite animated towards me when I told him my car was a Reliant , not a Renault. They walk among us, are permitted to vote and, most frighteningly of ...

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Picked up the Volvo on the rear camera of my little wee Honda and the Land Rover on the front camera of my big muckle Ducati.

I assume the Volvo must be a Northern Ireland plate?

SE6a (mostly, but not all) parts

After a few PMs, here are some more pictures and information - hope they are of some help: Crown wheel & pinion are 3.07:1, look like they have two wear patterns so may have been in more than one axle. CWP.JPG Disks are TR6 type, standard and unused just been on the shelf for years. Disks.JPG Gasket...
