Red SS1 on A4 near Compton Basset, heading towards Calne, Wiltshire.

Tuesday 19th May. I was on my Motorbike at the time going in the opposite direction. Not a Wiltshire Noggin member, alas.

Wiltshire Noggin

Saw this old thread and thought I should update it. The Wiltshire Noggin has been meeting at the Barge Inn in Seend, Wiltshire for some time. hopefully we will continue to do so after the lockdown has finished. Assuming the the pub is still a going concern.

SE5A Project - Swindon

So, my Scimitar is home. We have had an issue or two on the shake down. Another leak on the overdrive. And a misfire when under load. But those were found in fairly short order 1. Closed up spark plugs x2 - how those go past me, I will never know. 2. Overdrive solenoid was slightly loose. So she cam...

Wakeup Sully

I concur, scimjim and I did it to my SE5a last month, before we put the engine and gearbox back in my SE5a. The switches do get corroded and dirty inside, with any grease gone solid, decades ago. So definitely worth stripping, cleaning and re-lubricating. Got a spare one, in bits in a bag, ready for...

SE5A Project - Swindon

So a little update is required. The new (to me) engine is running, sounds good, with good oil pressure, no 'funny noises, but I then melted the old plastic oil gauge pipe and am awaiting a new one. Finally sorted why the overdrive sump would not seal. The caps for the overdrive pumps were not done u...

I had the same issue a week or two ago. SE5A with tubular manifolds.

The manifolds had to be removed, and I did remove the oil filter as well.

Not so much of an issue in my case, as they had recently been disturbed, and I had already fixed the broken studs.

Sorry,

New to me - 5a GER

Bleeding useless things anyway.

Never on when they should be on (which is rarely) and never off when they should be off, which in some cases is the rest of the year, having accidently switched it on in the first case.

Lovely colour.

Hurumph

Engine mounts

Its for a road car. But the ones I fitted a couple of years ago, did not seem to last either...From a well known supplier. They distorted quite alarmingly.

Seems, rubber is not what it used to be...
