SE6a (mostly, but not all) parts

Post by MickP » Sun May 19, 2019 9:42 am

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.

Gasket sets; two Essex head sets plus others. Can't remember where I got them but the same type of head gaskets are still on "my" car after 11 years, so they can't be too bad.

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 will probably go to the local skip or scrap dealer - even they might not take it though.

The wheel balancer works quite well and there are ten or eleven of the oil filters. Any interest, please let me know quickly as this is all going no later than Friday. Sometimes things make quite a lot of money at the local auctions, other times they may not even sell - just depends who is there.

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 their van.

I used it with my SE6a Wolfrace wheels and tested the wheels up to *** mph heading to Forfar on the A90 from Brechin without a shimmer through the wheel. I also did my rear ones just for the practice and all of a sudden what I thought was vibration from an out of balance prop-shaft disappeared.

It will work with most narrow-ish car wheels with a standard-ish hole in the centre. No use for my motorbikes though. I always thought they were a bit of a gimmick, but not any more.

thanks

I don't 'really' need one and trying to empty garage of 'stuff', so this would reverse that trend . .. . :wink:

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.

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 still be in my garage come Saturnalia - next year! This is what happens when you sell your GTE.

Also, unbelievably, I am still unearthing things - it must come to an end at some point surely?

Trunnions, SE6 series type with PAS. Bought years ago by me with only a picture of the boxes. When opened they have a lager hole in them (bloomin' eBay!) - possibly the type that should have two top hat type bushes fitted but the bushes have been used. Not sure if Reliant ever used that type? The part numbers on the boxes are correct, but is it the correct parts?

Stainless steel mesh that I was going to use on the front of my GTE to replace the radiator intake mesh. Like "Jimmy Fix It" this was hiding in plain sight for years - hanging on the garage wall in this case. Local collection might be best, or if anyone does want it sent please let me know the width needed and I can cut it down. It is well over 1 meter, which could cause problems sending. Best check that the 14 inches height is enough as well.

Scimitar GTE manual - genuine Reliant, with wiring diagram on separate two page size sheet. This is obviously so you can lay it on the air filter/front seat/boot floor while trying to trace the fault :lol: . Book is very detailed and way better than the likes of Haynes. Does not cover the engine.

Ford "Bordeaux" auto box training books - about the thickness of a car magazine. Covers are a bit grubby but inside is not so bad. Quite useful for testing, adjusting and setting up the C3 transmission. Contrary to much popular myth autoboxes, like back axles, do not require the use of smoke and mirrors in their black arts. We have all heard the "Ooh, specialist job that!" nonsense I am sure - I don't even listen any more. (Ducati valve setting and pressed together crankshafts are others that I frequently have to endure hearing about :roll: ).

Any use to anyone, get in touch and I will try to find out a fair price for the items of interest :wink: .

Ford C3 Automatic Transmission manuals now on their way to their new owner - thank you.
Essex V6 cylinder heads sold pending payment and courier collection.

It is really hitting me now, with all these parts I spent years collecting going, that my SE6a is actually gone :( . As a punishment for selling the Scimitar my beautiful, ferocious, affectionate hybrid wildcat was run over and killed by some total brain dead clown late one night. :( :evil:
