Engine Rebuild Novice

I wonder just how critical the balance of the flex-plate actually is, bearing in mind that it's only a fairly thin flimsy thing, much thinner than a "proper" flywheel?

Electric fuel pump continues to pump fuel

What make/model of pump is it, and what is it's claimed delivery pressure? Maybe it needs a regulator?

Gurston Down 20/21 April 2019

Goodwoods next - a circuit I know well but I've never managed to be particularly competitive at; my best CM score there is 21.66pts. I'm hoping I can improve on that if I manage to get the 3.62 diff fitted in time (and drive the wheels off it :twisted: :twisted: ) Presumably Brighton & Hove MC on t...

Colour issue

You're right, they are very similar (but subtly different) - in fact so similar you probably wouldn't know unless you parked one of each next to each other. I think Mulberry did replace Beaujolais, but not immediately. AFAIK Beaujolais finished with the Se5a, but Mulberry didn't appear until relativ...

Colour issue

The workshop manual says that the date codes are before the colour code in the chassis number and doesn't give a mulberry option, hence the confusion....probably a very late colour option. Yes, the Reliant workshop manual is describing the earlier (pre-international VIN) system which lasted for mos...

Colour issue

(incidentally, is the 1820 correct, or a typo?) Actually, on reflection, and a bit more research, I think that's right. It appears (according to the Wiki) that after they changed to the new international VIN codes on the late Se6a, they kept the old-style model codes initially. So yours would be 18...

Which manual are you looking at? Your paint code is 54 (mulberry) the same as my dark red car, the 53 near the end, is just part of the sequential chassis number. (of course that's the paint code; doesn't necessarily mean it's what's on the car now! :lol: ) (incidentally, is the 1820 correct, or a t...

Goodwood Photo Competition

Thanks very much, Ben :D I still try to get there as much as possible - at Easter I was there on Saturday (Bognor Regis MC Sprint) and Monday (GRRC Spring Sprint). On Saturday, had a very nice run in the sunshine there and back, top-down in the SS1. Planned to do the same on Monday, but found a scre...

Slimmest tyre for a Dunlop Composite?

Worth bearing in mind that the tyre profile is a percentage, so if you are currently running (say) 195/70x14 and change to 165/70x14, then the diameter of your tyres will decrease - by 42mm in fact. That's 21mm off your front ground clearance, and if you fitted them at the rear, then that would lowe...

And my mulberry car has them. (though it is a relatively late Se6a, and was run by Reliant for it's first year of life). :)

FEB444W Renovating my 6A after repurchasing

One of the nice things about Wolfies, I think, is that being a fairly smooth design, without a lot of hidden nooks and crannies, it's possible to make a real difference using purely manual methods at home. That looks great! :D
