SE5 bits, carb, air filter, steering wheels, Jaguar seats and more

Evening,
Door cards don't look much better than the ones I have already I'm afraid, so I'm happy to let Gavin have them. Sorry to have troubled you.

SE5 bits, carb, air filter, steering wheels, Jaguar seats and more

I could be interested in the SE5 door cards, again depending on condition and price. Thanks

Se5 with black pillars??
Not standard. I did that myself to copy the 5a on which it WAS standard. Just liked the look :roll:

5 / 5a wheel trims

Dave, Those wheel trims on your first picture are the same that we're on SAR, my 1970 SE5, from new. As I understand it they changed to the ones shown shown in Jim's picture as soon as the 5a was introduced. They did not carry over to the 5a afaik Here's a pic of SAR taken in about 1974 IMG_0203.JPG...

Oil additives

Colin Chapman always said that it was flow that was important not the indicated pressure. Elans running at max pressure of 40psi and 20 psi at tick over were considered normal and not unusual even in a new car.

B post repair plates

I did mine from the inside too, but can't find the link at the mo. Will have another try later Ah I've found it, but I’d forgotten that the body was off the chassis and high up so I could easily access the triangular plate, cut it off and re-weld a new plate on. Sorry, probably not helpful :( :oops:

Scammers

Keep a close look on your own ads too. A few years ago I advertised my Lotus Elise on fleabay for £11.5 k, got a few enquiries including a few that asked why it was so cheap at only £5.5k ! :evil: My own ad had been scammed, just contact details removed and replaced with an email only and some poor ...

Lovely work Mike, well done. Personally I wouldnt rely on motor to bell housing for the earth. You've nothing to lose and everything to gain by connecting the earth of the motor directly to the chassis. Go on give it a go, you know it makes sense :D :D

Starter solenoid issue?

Thanks Andy, that sounds very logical. The battery WAS low as I said, but I had a long run to the noggin on Thursday albeit with lights on on the way back so should have been ok.

Starter solenoid issue?

Curious to know what/why this has happened in the first place and how it came to be fixed. Tried to start SAR (my 5 for those that have led a very sheltered life :lol: ) and most unusually she didn't fire up as quickly as normal, in fact she actually didn't fire at all though she tried. I found then...
