Fantasy Reliant Museum

All of the above - in Tamworth :D Ah, but...………. On the basis that nobody's going to come from Thurso or Land's End on a trip just to see the Museum, other attractions are required for, say, a week's hol.

My old SE5 also had an SU pump fitted thinking about it - conveniently they stop clicking when the float chamber is full. Think mine was from an MGB but managed to keep up with the Essex no problem.

Scimitar SE5 will not start

Lockheed rear drum brakes: How to fit the lower spring from behind?
