Coil Earth

Ditto what Philip just said. I have seen several cases where the points have been wrongly assembled so either no current to the sprung point, or a dead short from the feed wire to the baseplate.

Rear axle hubs

So it's off? That sounds about normal to me. You will probably find there is an obvious high spot on the taper where the hub had been seized, you can rub that off with a strip of emery cloth;and re-assemble with a smear of copper slip . Some people will advise to re-assemble dry, but I reckon that's...

Why is my Fan so Cold?

Yes, there is an O at the top of the right-hand (temperature control) lever, and the difference between full heat and off is only about 1cm. Slight mal adjustment of the lever might cause you to shut the hot water off completely when you thin k you have set full heat.

Joe, that sounds exactly like my 6A. Peter, great minds think alike! I am in the process of fitting a small auxiliary fan unit, water-heated, in my footwell. How did you plumb yours in?

Essex block: get it decked?

In my non-expert opinion, that engine has been sleeved,which is why the rim of the bore looks OK. Ford sent quite a lot of these engines out after being sleeved in production, it was a way of saving blocks which had been badly cast. It is equally possible to have the sleeve relplaced, or to have a d...

Just fitted an EFL 90 oil filter ..

I have been using Mann filters in all my cars including the Scimitar for at least 20 years. No problems. I think all this fuss about genuine Ford EFL 90 is a load of bull.

I had one, so did my brother, in our student days. I used to walk to school past the factory where they were made , in those days it was Sharps Commercials of Preston who built them under contract for Bond. Reliant came on the scene many years later, after production of the Equipe GT became too big ...
