Roger's Scimitars - MOT Time (SS1)

This thread hasn't had an update for a while! :roll: Just a quick note to say that, much to my relief, the SS1 passed another MOT yesterday, so it's hopefully all set for continued motoring. Not without a couple of advisories ("monitor and repair if necessary" in modern terminology), these were: 1. ...

Se6a project

Your memory is better than mine on that, Phil :) but the combination of this rear view of the car and this post from Mark does seem to confirm the connection with John, at least?

SE6a Not Starting Only Turning Over

Did you pump the throttle a couple of times (at least) to set the choke and prime the carb, before attempting to start?

1600 cvh

One other thing to be aware of, is that a non-Reliant engine won't have the bleed screw at the front of the head. In that case you can either drill and tap the head and fit one, or, I believe that the other way round it, when filling the cooling system, is to jack up the car at the rear and loosen o...

Or alternatively, there are some here in this thread (though these aren't as cheap!)

Late 6a propshaft

It's always been my understanding that the two-piece prop was only fitted to earlier cars and dropped later (possibly because of reliability issues?). Certainly my Oct '78 Man-o/d (owned by me since '96) and my Feb '79 Auto (owned by me since '83) both have single-piece props. However, the parts lis...

Bonnet noise se5a

The metal mesh for radio interference suppression? I don't think I've ever noticed it while driving along, I only normally notice it if I bang my head on the bonnet while working on the car ( :oops: ) or while opening and closing the bonnet. This is an Se6a, but I don't think the Se5a is fundamental...

Spegru SE6a

Oldconn's bracket looks the same as mine (ie the later Se6a bracket as in the second pic in Jim's note on the last page). Your bracket as far as I can see looks like the older bracket (as in the first pic). Is your engine original to the car? (and what age is the car?). The low pressure pipe has a r...

MBs are going to be there - perhaps they have sent you an invitation by mistake.
Or perhaps it's through Philip's Porsche connection? :W :lol:

Check a couple of part numbers please

This recent thread may also have some bearing on this, though it's also a bit confusing in places

SE6A engine lifting....

and noticed that the flexible portions of the steering pipes were old and brittle, and I could spin them around - so they are obviously no longer securely crimped on. A trip to the local hydraulic service shop is called for. When I had a fluid leak from one of the crimped flexibles, I did the same,...
