coupe straight six front/rear axle parts

Buy it quick Philip!

You know you want to :)

PS: this is an interesting thread - maybe a friendly passing mod could save it into the Coupe section once the axle sells?

coupe straight six front/rear axle parts

Just measured both my axles - inside backplate to backplate: Old axle: 45 3/4" / 116cm Axle on car: 48"(4ft) / 122cm (most likely a V6 axle) Yep, that pretty much matches what I've just measured. I reckon my spare Sabre Six/early S6 Coupe 7HA axle housing is approx. 1160mm hub flange-outer-edge to ...

coupe straight six front/rear axle parts

I believe the 7HA axle was carried right through the Coupe run, into the early SE5s before the switch was done to the stronger, heavier 4HA. So if you get an original Coupe axle it should definitely be a 7HA I believe. The only issue is that at some point in the run the width of the 7HA axle was inc...

coupe straight six front/rear axle parts

Philip, I believe the S6 Coupe axle is the same 7HA as used on the Sabre Six. The V6 Coupe 7HA is slightly wider (about 25mm from memory??) but will still fit the Sabre Six with a bit of fettling to things like handbrake linkage etc. I have a spare one of these and it fits my car OK with no issues o...

Tony's link at the end for the Landy Series 3 has the correct orientation, I believe.

Cotswold Clouds Trail

Glad you liked it Ben - thanks for the feedback! SS1s are a force to be reckoned with in Classic Trialling and it's a very active scene - or at least, was before the current shutdown. The sport has survived two world wars so it will be back have no doubt. I try to scan various forums to see what's g...

Black vinyl roof? 42 WYD? John Devlin's maybe?

Wheeler Dealers with Ant Armstead

I know it's a year old now but just been watching some of the new series with Ant Armstead on Quest. I was expecting more of what forced Edd China out - faux dramas and deadlines, less and less technical stuff and loads of cringeworthy made-up dialogue between Ant and Mike. All the crappy stuff the ...

Coupe SE4a horn button stalk

That's interesting Andy, thanks. At the risk of digressing from the OP request for a V6 Coupe horn switch, that classic Volvo switch does look like the Sabre/early Coupe one. But presumably if it's an overdrive switch it is two-position, in/out? Unless the overdrive latching mechanism is done elsewh...

Coupe SE4a horn button stalk

Hi Trevor, I believe only early coupes had this type of horn switch. I managed to buy one when I first got my coupe, but didn’t ever find out what else they were fitted to. This is what they look like.BD541FC1-D432-4399-A336-DD11D7A9039F.jpeg This type of horn switch in the photo was fitted to the ...

vertical link

Geoff Cooper and I had one snap on his Coupe in Portugal but that was right at the top of the threaded portion at the bottom. I had my passenger side link on the Sabre Six go in exactly the same place as Geoff's in Brittany in 2006. Can't ever recall hearing about one failing where yours has Peter ...
