Manny's 78 GTE

Yes, the Yellow Peril's front outriggers, side rails, and roll-bar bottoms, were all done in-situ (with access holes cut where necessary, and replaced afterwards)

Brake worries

Would that be the part listed in Graham Walkers Catalogue as "Failure sensitive pressure reducing valve"? If so where abouts would that be hiding? On a 6a it's not "failure sensitive" as the m/c does the failure sensing - the pressure-reducing valve is on the chassis leg almost directly below the m...

More bad luck for my Scimitar

The guy who used to make them (but has now retired) was Eric Newton - there is a thread about it here

More bad luck for my Scimitar

Sorry to hear that :(

I tend to agree with Jim - probably not someone attracted by what they could see, but the vain hope that there might be something more valuable that they couldn't see.

SE6A engine lifting....

I don't think there's anything non-factory original for a 6a in your pipes (or indeed your PAS pump brackets, as far as I can see) I presume the 6b type pump and the later 6a one are compatible so will interchange. My pipes run along the cross-brace exactly as yours does. I can't see any anomaly exc...

SE6A engine lifting....

Thanks Roger. We used to call them crowfoot spanners, and I have a few, but the problem is the proximity to the chassis. There simply isn't enough room to get a spanner in ther and swing it. I am thinking about un-clamping the steering rack to move it forwards off its saddles; but that would mean I...

Remove a car radio

I don't have a 5a, but it's not like a 6a is it, where you can remove the standard radio by taking out the glovebox liner, and then taking the radio out sideways through the glovebox?

SE6A engine lifting....

I can't answer the engine question I'm afraid. However, those pipes are a bit tricky - you really have to do them in the right order, I find. Having said that, I think that pipe is actually the easiest, and the one I would normally do first, to make more space for the others. I used a flare spanner ...

Goldie the Coupe

Judging by your photo you've got a choice? If so I'd make sure the wires were nice and clean, then keep them for shows, and have the alloys for everyday practicality - best of both worlds! :D (or am I just greedy? :lol: )

SS1 master cylinder rebuild attempt

Have you checked for the existence of a stop pin holding it in? The Se6a has that arrangement, with the pin hidden under the reservoir and needing to be released by pushing the piston inwards - maybe the SS1 is the same?
