Rear Number plate light

Hello. I am struggling to fix the rear number plate light. It is powered at the moment from the rear near side light cluster. The wire from the plate light is attached to the rear side light wire. There is an earth from the plate light also which seems OK. The 10a fuse keeps popping. Could someone p...

Re: RX8 conversion project

After owning (garaged at mo) a RX8 for a year or so the gearbox and 13b engine worked so well together. Not as quick a short shift as with the earlier Eunos MX5 I had but good all the same. The 13b engine is great in both its general formats and would be very interesting to see them kept together al...

Re: Transit Essex 3.0? is it scrap metal?

Mine is a TR Transit code Essex block. All seems well for the past 10 years. I have swapped the heads but only for something to do on a Sunday. It was painted Olive green originally (Block and heads and rocker covers) so exchange unit at some point in its life. I did do a compression test and came o...

Re: Moronic mechanic on Car S.O.S

I agree. Car SOSage is entertaining and the Guys are likeable. Do a great job for deserving Owners. To be honest enjoy most the shows now that Top Gear has gone. Still waiting for a SE5a on Petrolicious. Or a Big Block Scim on Roadkill. Might be a long wait.........

Re: Rotary Reliance

It was smooth and free-revving Roger if my memory serves me correctly. Looking forward to hearing and using it again. Your right as well Dave. I also premix with a good 2 stroke FD grade oil in the fuel. Only 150ml per tank-ish. The OMP that feeds the oil is left side middle on the last photo. You c...

Re: Rotary Reliance

Update - Scimitar still going strong. 5000 + miles while fixing the RX8. Good Girl. Nearly ready to put 13b engine back in now. All cleaned up. New E-shaft, bearings for rotors and stationary gears. New apex seals + new springs for side seals and corner seals. Originals seals were fine.....I hope. h...

Re: Silverstone Classic Car Show 29/31 July

Here are a few shots of Sabre Six prior to damage but also during an overheating issue in the National Pits. Certainly seemed to be coolant and steam escaping while I was there. A familiar Reliant trait I believe. http://i799.photobucket.com/albums/yy273/stocksy71/DSC_0933%202.jpg http://i799.photob...

Re: Silverstone Classic Car Show 29/31 July

That is a good spot. Perfect for Kids sticky fingerprints all over the cars from the 10 nearby ice cream and Burger vans. Seriously though it is a good spot. Lots of footfall. My 5a is going to be there but a bit on the shabby chic side for showing :) It shall be joining in on festivities at Woodlan...

Re: Victims of mindless religious cretins

Equally appalled by it all. I was over there last week (Vendee and Loire) and Love France. A Friend suggested this image I took had hope and peace and all that we stand for softly suggested within it.
