1996 1.4 K series Sabre

Just to say car has sold and now in its new home in Devon. New owner had a trouble free journey home and he tells me he is pleased with his buy.

Thanks to all who helped me turn this car into the super little sports car it now is.

Regards
Mike

1996 1.4 K series Sabre

Having spent a couple of weeks musing over whether or not to sell this car I have now decided to move this car on. Before I put it up for sale to the general public I thought I would give fellow club/forum members first chance. Many of you will have followed the trials & tribulations that have been ...

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Price of the cat, fitting it and MOT worked out at £357 all in so total outlay to date is around £1450 on this car which was unexpected when I bought it since I understood it to be "well maintained". That said it now performs quite well. For whatever reason fitment of the cat rather than the previou...

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Interested in your comments re your MOT and the tester. Had the Quantum MOT'd a couple of weeks ago and they told Oxby's that the emissions were a bit high. However it passed (without advisaries) as although it was factory built in 95 with a new 1.9 engine the emission result was ignored not only be...

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Hi guys Catalytic Converter now fitted resulting in zero CO emissions and an MOT pass with no advisories. Garage said that they couldn’t remember the last time they had passed one with a zero reading. Don’t know why but car does now appear to tick over better and pull smoother so assume that running...

FS: Straight Six Coupe

Just so I can put my mind at rest and stop wishful thinking how much? I know it will be out of my reach but it looks a fabulous car and one can only dream.

Emissions test and catalytic converter

OK chaps. Panic over. Getting one from Nigel at QRG. He has them in stock. Cat only not full exhaust system. Will let you know final cost for future reference. Said he would do me good deal as he said last one he sold was 10 months ago.

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Have spoken to Nigel at Reliant Parts World. He gave me part no. 223027 which is listed by them on ebay. Although it states it's for the 1800Ti he says he's been told it is really the one for the 1.4 K series. Have attached pic so can anyone confirm this?

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Quick question fella's. The Sabre just failed it's MOT on the emissions test. An examination of the exhaust appears to indicate that it should have a cat fitted since the pipe has an infill section fitted about a foot in length with flanges at each end. I believe that the K series fitted to the Rove...

Afternoon all Let me start by thanking everyone once again for all the comments, advice and help in assisting me to sort out the problems not only with this car but all the Scims I have owned. Having such a backup of knowledge and support available certainly eases the concerns if not the frustration...
