SE6a french wake up after a long sleep

Ok Eric The small holes are a historic throwback to what the engine was used for before Reliant started using it. :evil: It makes no sense whatsoever to restrict the water flow around this engine. :hand: The smaller holes at the rear actually trap air underneath them, the thermostat that`s recommend...

SE5A Project - Swindon

I have a few dead units that the horn switch can be pulled off/repaired/replaced.
Hardest bit is the central wire for the contacts inside the knob at the end.

Power Steering for Se5A

I know Roy
They are more scarce than you can imagine.
The A O C are actively looking for them to keep their cars going, but most owners are thinking of changing to manual.
The unit fitted to the top of the range models is a very complex bit of kit.

SE6a french wake up after a long sleep

Hi Eric Inlet gaskets again :roll: They cause so much trouble and lead to overheating. There should be No perceptible play in the valves. The cost of refurbishing an engine is enormous, especially if your reconditioner cannot source the correct parts and has to resort to whatever is offered. Point i...

SS1 Rear wheel bearing

IIRC the Generic nut, IF supplied, will not fit the Scimitar/Ford axle shaft.
So be careful when removing it from the car, NO hammer and Chisel IF it`s V tight. :cry:

Steve Malta is a great place.
I`m bias as I was born near Mtarfa.
But it can be a "Marmite" Island, some places are rough, and some are wonderful.
The people are great, just likje the weather.
You must let me know what parts you still need/want.

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Actually a very underrated motor. My dad had a few from the 1200 Riva to a 4x4 Niva and the later 1600 Samara estate. I actually had one for a year or so and apart from the distributor eating itself it was a good cheap runaround. We had a couple of dealerships in Keighley that helped things a bit, C...
