Clutch master cylinder

You treat your Sabre Six to Olivio and essential oils? :shock:

Maybe that's where I'm going wrong.

Aha, I clocked what appeared to be a single exhaust when I uploaded the pic.

SE5a spotted on A303 W, Weds 10th July

First time I've had a chance encounter with a Scimitar in a long while. Heading westbound near Sparkford on the A303 on Weds 10th July about lunchtime. Dark blue SE5a with patina overtook us making rapid progress and sounding lovely. I was driving my wife's Honda Jazz so no point waving like a nutte...

A new cooling discussion

When I bought 660XYB it had a bracket system behind the rad holding the existing motor; to restore some originality I put the motor in front of the rad where it ought to be, which is probably why I've introduced potential cooling issues. I've only boiled over once, when I forgot to turn the fan on....

GavinR's Se5a Project

Great write-up Gavin, thanks! Steve Joyce and I did the Hughes in 2017 and it was a tricky event, but like you we really loved the sections in Mereworth Woods :D

Brendan Gibbs and I have entered the East Anglian Classic in a couple of weeks in the Sabre, so we'll let you know how we get on!

TR6 Wheel nuts

That's odd Roger. My wheels are definitely TR6 steels, they fit and the nuts I linked are correct - I can't speak for alloys.

TR6 Wheel nuts

I have a set of TR6 wheels for my Sabre Six, as do one or two others. Studs are 1/2" UNF just like at least the Coupes and SE5s and as Jim says above, the TR6 wheels fit perfectly - mine are not designed for 7/16" studs. That's not to say there wasn't some variant for smaller studs, but I'm not awar...

Keep your head up Mikey! I'm pretty sure every one of us reading this thread can associate with what you're describing and the challenges of seeing a big job through to completion. It ain't easy - respect to you, seriously. I've no doubt there are many of us like me who lurk in the background a bit ...

Overdrive Selection advice

It's funny, I've been driving overdrive cars for two decades now (all J-type overdrives) and it's just second nature that I don't think about it. I happened to have taken the Sabre with me to work today, so on the drive home I concentrated on how I used the overdrive. As I thought, dropping it in wa...

Overdrive Selection advice

Interesting. I have a J-type overdrive and I've never used it in conjunction with the clutch - isn't that one of the joys of dropping the overdrive in and out especially when driving around town in 3rd gear? The clutchless, instant gear-change? I don't pop the overdrive in when under full foot-to-th...

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 ...
