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.

Here's a VERY rare one. Anybody care to identify it? (Of course I know the answer)

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...

Classic Days 29-30 Aug 2020

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.

GTC full lock foul

Hi Philip, you can play with the TRE's to a small extent, but changing from forward to reverse shouldn't make any differenceunless they are slop^py. I would suspect worn bushes in the wishbones, or maybe a crack in the bracket which fixes the wishbone to the chassis.
35°C here also .

Valve spring lengths

If you are refreshing an old engine, the alumininum coating will have disappeared long ago. Lap them in , it's better than leaving them to leak. I bought some new valves last year, no trace of aluminium coating on them. I think only Ford used those in the factory , and I don't think they are sold an...

Welcome aboard, that's a clean-looking car - even clean under the wheel-arches! Don't forget to notify the SE5A registrar, Dave Speed. :D
