SS1 Quarterlight frames

Craig it was the structural rigidity I was concerned about. :? I have been in contact with, and seen/used plastic injection building a little bit while I have been an engineer. :wink: Steel was used for obvious reasons. :?: I would also think that the possible costs involved would probably be more t...

SS1 Quarterlight frames

Stainless Steel Door hinge mountings

They arrive as a finished unit ready to bond into the darkest recesses of the body. You will see I have included DATUM holes for the hinges to help in positioning the support plated while bonding takes place. " IF " you just wanted a " section ", then I can produce those to order. I also have the re...

Overdrive for SE5a 1975

Hi Steve I can confirm it would be nearly impossible to remove OD in situ. I have checked my stock and I have a working OD with flange. A Factory ReCon OD with flange, and a sliding joint for the later cars. A 5a Box that was on exchange so I don`t know the condition but the input shaft is Not showi...

Overdrive for SE5a 1975

I have most combinations you may need Steve.

Factory reconditioned OD, a good used OD.
A good used gearbox too.

I MAY have a full GB + OD, but would have to look.

Hi Rob Wherabouts in N Yorks ?. I have a 5a man OD that has peeling paint, but the engine has had a bit done to it over the years, inc OilCooler plumbed in and extra cooling ducts fitted. Needs TLC but sound underneath. I also have a 6b with a cracking engine, man OD too. So Galve chassis obviously....

"NOS" Essex 3.0 Engine

Possibly for LPG.

They had these advertised a year or so ago but obviously not sold all of them.

IIRC Victor Pace bought one for his Coupe rebuild but it was rubbish.
