Barn find SE5a in County Meath, Ireland

It's a 5a not a 5 so it can't be a 1970 model.

Correct Valve Clearances SE6A

I use the exhaust opening/inlet closing technique.Seem to get more accurate setting doing it that way.
Probably best to look it up.
You set them one cylinder at a time.
If you do it in the firing order [142536]it doesn't take long.

SE5 Watts linkage arm

I think the 5 4HA links are the same as the 5a,so they will be fine as mine has the 4HA axle.

Girling Mk2b powerstop parts

Managed to order the valves from ebay.
I fitted a Lockheed type servo but the brake feel was not as good as with the original Girling.

SE5a rebuild/ rolling restoration - 2 questions

I chopped the end off a 1/2" extension and used an open ended spanner to undo the diff plug.
Easier than removing the Watts linkage arm.

Noise after changing timing wheel

Which type of front cover do you have?
I have heard the early type can foul the later type wheel.
Although I didn't have that problem myself.

SE5 trailing arms and good/new bushes

I was on with swapping my rear axle and one of the trailing arm bushes fell out. On closer inspection I noticed the eye holding the bush had split due to corrosion. A bit worrying really. I was wondering if anyone has a set of four good,solid trailing arms? Hopefully with good bushes or does anyone ...
