AVIATION ANYONE??

I’ve only just seen this thread - I didn’t realise (bar Jim and Luke) that we had some much interest in aviation on here! If anyone is interested I’m still serving in the RAF and have spent most of the last 18-odd years as a backseater on Tornado F3 and GR4 - I can whack some pics in if they’d be of...

'74 SE5a rolling resto

Long time no update.... Currently having a new workshop built, having knocked down our decrepit garage. The body is back on the chassis having been trimmed-back somewhat, and the lot is off away having the roll cage fabricated. We’re putting in a floor mounted Tilton pedal box mounted on a steel fro...

Essex race engine or parts

Thanks for the offers so far chaps - interested in both the heads and the manifold if you’d like to PM how much you’re looking at (and the spec of the heads). I already have the engine that came in the car so have a bottom end etc; I’m more after ‘spare’ already modified parts. But I’m interested in...

SS1 diff from Gloucestershire To Hampshire

Wakey wakey

Nowt from me, came 4th in the Championship last year and back out in the Fiesta again this year. First round at Brands on 13 Apt but I’ll be out testing in March. I’ve since had the Scimitar chassis back from Iain Daniels. I’ve bought Protech coilovers and once they are fitted (some fettling to do) ...

Essex race engine or parts

Hi everybody, I’m just back from Autosport and had a good chat with Ric Wood about one of his engines - they sound first class but clearly come at a not insignificant cost... so I was wondering if anybody has either a complete race spec engine (or parts that might help put one together) available? I...

SHOCK CHOICE

Sorry, next silly question... I’m now at the car but can’t find my verniers so having to use a tape measure (= not particularly accurate). Looks like there is 1 1/8” space at the top and bottom brackets, and that the bolts are 1/2” UNF. Is this right? My tape measure is a bit rubbish but I’d have th...
