SS1 Brake failure n/s front!

Thanks for the information. The ECP disc does, as hinted at, bear no resemblance to the one on the SS1. Investigating availability from the club traders.

SS1 Brake failure n/s front!

Hi All. Just had an interesting experience driving my SS1 Turbo. When braking the car suddenly violently veered to the right with some strange graunching noises from the front n/s. I tried to limp home but in the end called out RH recovery. Getting home I started to investigate what had happened. On...

Which Oil filter for SSI 1800TI??

I've got three different types of oil filter removing tools so should be easy to turn, its just hitting the steering column when removing/refitting that is the problem.

Which Oil filter for SSI 1800TI??

Sorry Peter, only just read your post. The Mann 811/83 looks promising as seems a very similar size to the Bosche that is fitted other than it is approx 25mm shorter so should not foul the steering column when installing or removing?

Which Oil filter for SSI 1800TI??

Have investigated Halfords but the HOF287 is no longer listed on their website nor available according to my local store.
Has anyone fitted an oil filter recently?

Which Oil filter for SSI 1800TI??

Just about to carry out my first oil change. After an extensive search I've found the oil filter! Looks difficult if not impossible to remove easily as it will foul the steering tube. The existing filter is a Bosche 0 989 452 023. Is there a shorter alternative that others are using which would make...

SS1 1800 Ti No Sparks

Picked up SSI from Andy at AJL Electronics in Gloucester today. Fault diagnosed and new part sourced and fitted! Great service, thanks Andy. Good drive home, MOT booked for tomorrow.
Fault was an optical sensor failure in the distributor.

Initial investigations confirm the symptoms. No sparks turning over but when the key is released and the engine stops turning, it wil give one or two sparks. Looking at it later after my back improves from pushing it into the workshop!
Sorry about the bad back Andy!

SS1 1800 Ti No Sparks

I am unable to start my SS1 1800 ti and have no sparks at the plugs. I was driving along normally and the car cut out as if the ignition was switched off. This happened twice but now car wont start at all. I've tried some basis checks but have limited knowledge! I took it (towed) to my local garage ...
