Can't upload photos at present

Interesting. Shortly after the forum changes were made to allow photos to be uploaded & placed inline like this, I briefly experienced exactly this problem. Couldn't correlate it with anything obvious like file size, browser etc. Came back later (following day maybe?) and all was working correctly. ...

Oaksey's Straight Six

That all looks great Josh! Do you know if the Ford 2553cc S6 engines were originally blue btw? I painted the one from my Sabre green when I rebuilt it and it looks good, but I have a feeling now it left the factory in blue. Not that it matters - just wondered. When I converted the Sabre to negative ...

CH4: mission ignition

Really surprised to see hardly any use of protective gloves. And most competitors wearing rings too.

I never, ever wear my wedding ring when working on my cars - even if the battery is disconnected. Is it just me?

Wiper switches

After my wiper motor failed on the Devon Classic Rally in Sept 2017 I researched the DR3 twin-speed and park motor to try and understand how it worked. Luckily it turned out it was just my brushes which were completely worn down so I replaced these for £5 which saved my head from exploding. Looks li...

I note that yours similar to mine (currently stopping a shelf)
I presume the shelf is in your stationary cupboard? :wink:
You're wasted on here Roger. I thought that was quite funny :D

fibreglass preparation

If you have the original floor, it will be plywood covered in a layer of fibreglass as all Sabre Sixes, Sabre fours just had plain plywood floors. Fixing with self tappers was the original way of fixing the tunnel to the floor. John Yep, it's how Reliant did it. Low tech and as Andy says above it's...

PMT338F

That's Steve Joyce's Coupe - sure he won't mind me identifying him. Lives in Bristol and navigated with me on a few HRCR Clubman rallies in 2017 in the Sabre Six. You can see the HRCR sticker on the back.

660XYB Engine fix

I'd echo that Philip - the silicone hoses I've bought haven't been expensive and have lasted brilliantly. Just don't get red or blue ones though, not on a Sabre Six :D :w

No hurry for the kit - let's catch up in a while. Pleased that it was of some help!

660XYB Engine fix

Morning Philip, pleased to hear things are running relatively smoothly and congrats on being oil-tight if not water-tight! I replaced my top hose with a generic silicone 90 degree bend of the right diameters in classic matt black and it's been fine for several years. The bend is a bit more (well, le...

Coupe Heater valve

Aha, thanks David! Do you know, when I was looking to replace my Coupe heater valve a few months ago I searched pretty thoroughly on the forum here and online but couldn't find the correct-handed valve - only references to how they are NLA. My wife would tell me I had a man-look :) So I bought the r...
