Wing mirror

Just had another look at the line drawings and they are very confusing as they don`t show the cables/wires. So I give up second guessing. Elvis can you tell us where the pictures came from as they don`t seem to be Scimitar related?. I think there may be some confusion creeping into this thread betwe...

I would query "loose" It should be tight enough to allow a sixteenth of an inch float at the top and bottom of the road wheel. They should NOT need a socket or spanner to undo them is what I meant, that`s why I put "Loose, I suppose I should have said "Finger tight, as the split pin keeps the endfl...

I have to change the brake discs and I would like to know the size of the socket to unscrew the "50764B, Slotted nut, stub axle shaft"
The nut should be "Loose, and held in place with a split pin.
Hardest bit will be removing the caliper and then the Disc from the hub.

If anyone needs the left type they were used on the ford Capri and some older taxis. There were a couple on eBay.
The LEFT type are Ford, its the RIGHT ones that were Ford, SS1/SST/Sabre & FX4 IIRC.
Reliant partsworld/mx5partworld in Cannock had a few NOS the last time I visited.

Unfortunately the Images do not show the Cables or Wires that normally operate these Mirror housings. These are both DRIVERS SIDE. The LEFT image is "Normally" cable operated and the "RIGHT" image is "Normally" Electrically operated. I have a few of the "LEFT" image mirrors in "Very Good" to "Slight...

Right angle clutch hose fitting

I have a few of these straight from Lucas and they have a machined side that goes against the bell housing which stops it turning and makes the fittings face upwards at the 1 o`1clock position.

Tell me about the slipped discs. I`m on 900mg Gabapentine Three times daily, plus Naproxen anf Tramadol, then Ranitidine to keep them all down. I suppose it all depends upon which disc/s are damaged, but I can get in and out of all my cars, including the low SST but driving the 05 Rover 75 is hard g...

Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

Without a number we can only assume its build date?. Even if the dipstick is on the side it could have been fitted later, early blocks had the casting but not drilled, just looked at one of mine with the forward sump. A few years ago I was involved in a warantee claim which involved a very convolute...

He had quite literally hundreds of Ford pistons that were NOS but without boxes or ID. :w I spent hours sorting through them for PowerMax OS pistons, but never found any. :cry: Anyone else remember him or the Mill??. :?: Over...
