SE6A Man OD prop length, anyone got measurments?

I didn't pay anything like £300 for a new prop, seven years ago. Suggest you Google for another supplier, You should get one for about £120-£130.

Electric Window Fault on GTC

That sounds similar to the 6A , so you should be able to remove the storage box from the console - two screws in the base- and reveal the inside of the moulding which will allow you to get to the back of the switches.

Electric Window Fault on GTC

Obviously it is easier to prove/disprove the switch first. Dismantling and repairing the motor and its mechanism inside the door is quite complicated and fiddly , and can be very expensive. I should know, I have just done my 6A! Where is the switch located on your car? On the forward face of the cen...

Making a pipe round

Clamp a chunk of broom handle in a vice, slip the pipe over it and gently tap back into shape with a small hammer, preferably a panel-beating hammer. Its a radiator, so the metal should be fairly malleable.

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Yes it is the Very rare V8 Simca V8 Trianon. I have been here for 25 years and this is the first one I have seen.

Classic Days 29-30 Aug 2020

The Covid situation is just too risky for me , I'm a high-risk person, so I'm staying at home. Sorry guys, maybe next year. However, I am still up for the English RenCart meeting at Nemours the week after, that will be a much smaller affair .

SE6a french wake up after a long sleep

Eric, looking at your photographs I can see the two tubular manifolds are not the same. They look like different makes. It is possible that one is for SE6A and the other is for SE5A which has a different chassis and engine mounts. Do you think the right side one could be modified by cutting and re-w...

The Covid 19 situation over here is getting worse again, some medics are saying a "second wave" is imminent. If it doesn't improve I probably won't be going to Magny Cours.

Wheel bearings

Don't know about SE5A, IIRC there were two different diameters depending on the year; but Nigel at QRG will know, and he only sells top quality such as Timken, etc.
