Phil,
I think they will make/obtain anything you want in regards to wheel nuts/studs etc. tend to be reasonably priced.
Might be another option, that's all.

:?: Se6 Radiator.The rad taken out of my 1980 SE6 (Heap) is not fitted with an "otter switch".No provision for one.Graham Walker replacement comes with a fitment for one. Which is
the correct unit for this car.

I'm surprised GW didn't ask if you needed one? They will be able to supply the correct unit, together with it's grommet and clip :)

Hi Roger, GW did offer a Hotter Switch for the new Rad.The Rad on my SE6 has no Hotter Switch, or a place to fit one,or any wiring that i can see.The rad is a perfect fit,so i assume it is original 1980's. :w The fan is wired up in the loom,where too, :!: will be the next search. Looks like i will get the old rad recored,and keep the current set-up.

It would have had an otter switch originally.

As Jim says, the otter switch was original fit, so the rad can't be original. I guess the acid test is "does the fan work at the moment?" If it does, then it must be wired to a switch somewhere else, if it doesn't work, or you haven't been able to try it yet, then anything might happen! :wink:

Attached photos of a way to fit "Alfa Romeo" seats into a SE6 without drilling new holes in the floor. (1) Remove the Runners and C Section channel from the
Scimitar Seats. (2) Unbolt the runners from the C Section. (3) As shown in the photograph, cut the C Section and bend the metal 180 degrees, and beat into
shape.Best done when metal is heated. But it can be done when metal is cold.Takes a little longer and more difficult. (4) Cut the back of the C Section and
bend inwards, to line up the holes for drilling. (5) You may have to re-drill one of the front holes, as shown in the picture. (6) Re-attach the runners to the
C Section and fit to seat base.The seat base runners should now be the same distance appart. as they have been held in place by the 2 metal bars front and
back, that were welded in place when you started.
