SE6A engine lifting....

The pipe is only screwed into the rear of the pump so once this is done just pull the pipe forwards and tie wrap it down its quite forgiving so don't be frightened of it. NO NEED TO REMOVE IT FROM THE RACK, your only complicating things if it breaks off at the rack. If you unscrew the Four bolts hol...

Wanted -se6a rear drums and backing plate

This has been brought up before?????????
The Lockheed backplates need the 3/8" mounting holes drilling further round so the handbrake cables and levers match up.
Then it is a straight forward swap over.

Matty I have pm`d you

Rear brake drums

:roll: Don`t give up the day job. But your nearly right :!: The SE5 drum has the inside mounting face Inset into the inside leaving a step, the TR3 drum internal mounting face was square off the braking face ie without the offset step. :? Kapri who did you get the TR drums from, and what did you ord...

Yep - but only late TR3 and the 3A - early TR3 are Lockheed (as per late TR2).
Jim I took an SE5/coupe drum to Moss International this week and we compared it with a new TR3a drum and they were a different shape completely??? :w

Wanted -se6a rear drums and backing plate

You have to rotate the Lockheed backplate on the mounting holes to get the handbrake cable etc to line up, and wriggle the SE5 cables about or swap for SE6 cable as its longer.
Just means drilling the 3/8" bolt holes on a different arc.

I`ve done a few conversions and its a great upgrade.

4HA axle SE6a rear drums on a SE5a Axle. Possible to mount and swap?

As far as I know there is not a current Vented disc available to fit the Girling calipers, there are however grooved and drilled available. I have a few sets in stock as I convert them to fit the later Lockheed setup. I actually went to visit Moss Europe yesterday and took a Coupe drum with me for a...

Positive pressure in GTC fuel tank

I can assure you Jim that when pulling up at filling station it gives a very loud sigh when opening the cap.
The vent system is fitted correctly I think, will have a look sometime.

If parked up for a while there is not a problem, same on the GTC.

Positive pressure in GTC fuel tank

My GTC and the SST both blow fuel vapour out when the caps are undone just after running. The SST is very noticeable, but it has a higher pressure pump to do this, also both cars have nearly new pumps, all new pipes and filters. So they both have the ideal chance of circulating the fuel back into th...

Irish Se6 restoration.

Middlebridge did it, presumably as there were no more rubber mouldings from the OE manufacturer. :?:
But the Silver/chrome "waistband" just stuck on doesn't look right to my eye, :w perhaps if it had been cut and mitred to fit better then I could accept it. :lol:

Thanks Roger, didn't realise the square/rectangular rod was conical.
Its the INTERNAL part that Jacks the shoes apart.

Chris sorry to tell you but the top inner retaining spring is through the wrong slot, the one at the top left.
It should be through the top hole and hooks over the lever.

Andy is correct too, the bottom adjuster spring should be behind the shoes to pull them INTO the adjuster slots.

I suppose MY main issue here is that you got the parts WHEN you should have got them, ie in time for MOT. :o
And "PLEASE" Chris look up the correct way to adjust the rear brakes once you have the car out of the present position :idea: :roll:

The 1/4" shaft sticking out the back IS the adjuster, slacken it off before attempting fitting new shoes :lol: The foreign gentleman obviously had my phone number and name from the site of Chronopost who handled the delivery at this end.
