JNX Sabre Six

with the regularity that Pither, Rew, Valler, et al were swapping, making, rebuilding Sabre chassis, bodies and bonnets in the 80s, how much do you think is “original”? Jim I think that statement is rather harsh. If I remember rightly Don and Robin did a lot to GTE’s Yellow Brick and Scimpart picku...

JNX Sabre Six

Scanned copy of Autocar road test of 249 JNX from 3rd April 1964 for those who have not seen it before. :hurrah: I have a high definition scan but have reduced it as it was over 48 MB and I thought it would be trouble loading it to the forum. Red Rocket I hope you have kept the Zenith carb and inlet...

Reliant Mistral Special for sale

Here's a photo of the car in its original (better?) form:- The bare shell with V5 was sold in 2015. Richard and I saw the chassis advertised on eBay in 2015 see screen shot and as not far from us, went along to see it, it was sat on top of another make unknown chassis. The place was an old farmyard...

Straight 6 low oil pressure

Philip if it did not have it when the works prepared it, don’t take away from the originality of your car and its historic past, just to keep up with the Jones’s :(

Straight 6 low oil pressure

42 ENX has both outlets utilized always has had, oil warning light RED of course, on the dash in good view of the driver. 92 FRP had the clock in between the speedometer and the rev counter removed and a round stoplight put in and connected to the warning light switch. I believe Nigel NG installed i...

Period Pictures / Old Photos / Memories

Well the DVD arrived today. I've watched the 1963 Monte Carlo rally and it features 6 EUE and 7 EUE. I'm sure it was 7 EUE coming down the hill as it looked as if it was number 172 on the door as far as I could tell. Thanks Dave I had notification yesterday that the DVD had been posted but it did n...

Scimitar Type approval document

The Scimitars before SS1 (and even some after) were never homologated for Europe. I suspect they were, we just don’t have the documentation. Reliant wouldn’t have made so many LHD cars without a route to sale? I had an email from the Reliant Motor Club newsletter this morning and in it was the news...

Hi Jim Do you know, is there an easy/quick way of downloading the contents/photos? I have just logged into the Yahoo Sabre Sabre group and it seems you have to download everything individually!

Cable rating - domestic

SWA is the stuff you need. 40 metres is a fair old run so I'd definitely use 6mm minimum, especially if it's buried as you'll need to downrate it. I presume you have a CCU in your garage and I'd ensure the RCD for the sockets is rated at 20A to protect the SWA. This will be fine for the ring as lon...
