Handbrake cable

Hi, just fitting a new handbrake cable about 6 months after I removed old one. (SE6 girling brakes). New cable from QRG. Do i need to open up the 'slot' on the axle bracket to allow cable to be fitted ? Bracket has a small split and then inner hole, but new cable looks bigger diameter and i threw ol...

Rear radius arm bolts.

Hi all,

Refitting my rear axle and I cant remember if the bolts in the rear-est part of radius arms face inwards or outwards ? Nut on hub side, or nut on axle side ? SE6 by the way. I did take photos but cant find them :| many thanks.

SE6a rear axle clicking sound; axle float?

I've just had my SE6 axle rebuilt by AJS Engineering in Brentwood who do a lot of Jaguar and Aston Martin rebuilds. Full overhaul including shotblast and repaint for a very good price. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.ajsengineering.com/&ved=2ahUKEwji8OrEk8PjAhUDQkEAHf...

Random SS1 headlight behaviour

Hi all, When I bought my SS1 the passenger side headlight wouldn't go down. I read Phil Wormald's guide, fitted a good s/h motor (cooper strip and limit switches all like new). Worked fine...for a week. Now, headlight will go down, but it also randomly goes up and down on it's own, even when the car...

SS1 carburettor questions

Fitted at the weekend, you were not wrong about the throttle clip, what an awkward design.

Thank you for those details, that's helpful. I'd assumed something was missing from the ball but now I see that's just where the cable connects. Will have a play. Thanks

SS1 carburettor questions

Hi all, I have a 1300 SS1 with the VV carb fitted. I also have a manifold and weber from a 1600 SS1 that i'd like to fit to try and get a bit more power. 1). Is this a stupid idea ? 2). If not, my new carb has the throttle linkage missing - does anyone have the missing bit ? 3). Will I need to chang...
