Engine swap 8cyl V 4cyl

The 6b has a deeper chin spoiler than the 6/6a - helps the inherent nose lift at high speed but doesn’t like high kerbs or speed bumps.

At the end of the day this car is a mix of what the Flying Scotsman was working on at the time.
unfortunately, that becomes illegal when you mis-describe something to sell it. It’s obviously a 6a chassis from those photos.

Engine swap 8cyl V 4cyl

I have a straight 6 BMW/Omega turbo diesel in a 5a and it handles surprisingly well (the extra weight is in the bulkhead and it has some trick Spax though). The Omega V6 powered scimitars I’ve driven handle well - and they must be lighter than the Essex. Old school Rover V8 swaps used to need much l...

Wakeup Sully

can anyone tell me how many braided earth straps are on a 5a and the position as my local motor factor has some they have put on clearance and I think it will be worth changing mine at the price in addition to the long one that goes from the gearbox crossmember, through the floor and up behind the ...

When the uprated engine was introduced in 1972, the numbering system changed - firstly to 93, then 93/ and finally 93X (i think :oops: )
annoyingly, not with the upgraded engine (at 453501) but the front suspension upgrade.

5a start date

Ah, the 45 prefix for SE5 and 5a changed to 93 in late 1972, then 93/ then 93x before the VIN system of numbering came in with the SE6.

It depends where you get the engines from. Ford had a division called Ford Power Products/Ford Industrial Power Products (now Ford Component Sales) who sell engines and gearboxes etc to third parties such as Reliant, TVR, Morgan, etc. The Essex didn’t have any serial numbers stamped when they arrive...
