Green SE5a for sale in South Carolina

I think he has still got it, because of this picture from a couple of days ago and his profile on Pistonheads. Might be an old picture but the profile suggests he still has it in his fleet

SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

I've been looking at something similar which lifts up the front two wheels only, you drive onto them and then a hydralic pump lifts two ramps. A guy in one of the classic car magazines has one and lifted his scimitar with it and then put a trolley jack under the rear axle to get all 4 wheels off the...

SE5a rear lights

This might be a bit steep and far away but https://palmsprings.craigslist.org/pts/d/portland-jensen-healey-taillight-brake/6891597974.html $95 (make an offer?) + postage if it really is in reasonable condition might be worth it. I recall a thread discussing these where someone in Australia was strug...

SE5 Watts linkage arm

If you have no luck, you can use a SE5a version. They are different but you can only get new bushes for SE5a. I had my SE5 linkages inners machined to accept the bushes. A previous owner had used a piece of heater hose... In hindsight it would have been a lot easier and cheaper for me to have bought...

Finished engine bay

Looks great. If I may tentatively point out some improvements which could be made, in the interests of complimenting your excellent work? How about one of these to sharpen up that bracket? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lucas-Ignition-Coil-Sticker-Classic-Car-Restoration-Vinyl-Decal-80mm-Green/173513983...

GTE Auto in Essex

Nice paint and wheels but "stunning" isn't a word I would use. It looks like it would need some major TLC on the cosmetics IF it was running and driving well. New carpets, repairs to interior and painting and general tidying up under the bonnet for example. A whizz over with a polisher and a steam c...

Mystery Car

I'm unfortunately not going to be of much help either. When I first saw the picture, the first name that popped to mind was Lenham... The car certainly seems too small to be based on a Daimler Dart, Harrington Alpine or Trident Clipper. But looking closer, I think Jim might well have nailed it with...

Scimitar will not start

There will a lot more knowledgeable people along soon but.... if you've got no fuel, and the timing and spark is more or less right, then the problem is fuel. Can you pour some fuel down the carb., a cap full, and try and see if you get anything? Or have you got some easy start spray you can spray o...

There used to be a bloke in malta with new ones slowly selling them set by set. I bought a pair for about £100, which seemed a lot at the time but in hindsight i think it was a...

Se5 Gear Selector Mechanism

The bush bottom right fits at the base of the gearstick. The black ones on the left are probably for the ends of the rods. the other two white ones - I would also like to know! I have one of these kits. £45 for basically one bit of plastic (the bottom right one is what I bought it for). If the other...

How about this number as a possible alternative? 0130805003 https://www.ebay.de/itm/223349736259 Looks very similar.

SE5a windscreen fitting - any tips and advice?

advice i once got from a tvr specialist. I've never tried it though. He explained how your screen might not be the same shape as the old one and the time to realise that is going to cause problems, is not when you are 90% into fitting it. his advice was to test fit it with a few bits of spare seal, ...
