Essex V6 Cooling discussion

Hi Joe, Like you, I managed to extract a good mug full of detritus from within the block when I stripped my 5a engine down many years ago! I think most of it was casting sand, with a hint of rust, that was still left in the block after manufacture. With the bare block on an engine stand in a warm ga...

Hi Rog,
I was parked up on the right as you head towards the cafe, a little tucked away but still had a note left on my windscreen asking if I wanted to sell it :D
See you at Silverstone

Ians GTC rebuild. Now the work begins

As Phil says, nice lateral thinking there Ian! I must say though that this method does remove the fear of craning your newly refurbed engine over a newly painted car with just millimetres to spare. I remember the moment well! Do you have a finish date in mind or an event you want to get it finished ...

1800ti For Sale

Hi Mark, Unfortunately/regretfully I’m not really in the market for another Ti :( I had one a few years ago and only sold it due to lack of use and even more lack of use of my 5a! I think I only did less than a 1000 miles in a year in the 5a which wasn’t doing it any good so the Ti had to go. Really...

New member with SE5A

Hi Carlos,
I know the owner and car very well being a Noggin member!

Cheer
