Help. Auto se6 Gear Issue

I would be amazed if the gearbox needs replacing. Sadly there are a lot of myths and misinformation going around about auto boxes, but in truth theynare probably more reliable than a pudding stirrer. Somewhere around you, there must be an old school auto gearbox specialist? The first thing I would b...

My Purple Project - SE5a 1973

Heat my boy, heat. Use a hair dryer and you will be able to mould it easily, but spray adhesive is going to make life very difficult. Get yourself a tin of high temperature contact adhesive (not Martrim branded) and do it one section at a time starting from the centre. When you get to the fiddly bit...

Renewing driving licence at 70

Photograph or Photocopy your old licence before sending it off as it’s not unknown for your new licence to come back with mistakes . That carries zero weight with the pen pushers. I will get my copy signed off by my good friend HHJ JT (retired) but I daresay that will not be acceptable proof either...

The carburettor would need rejetting to compensate rather than adjusting as the main jets will be too large now. The PCV opens at low vacuum, admitting lots more air. It only closes at high vacuum, ie idle.

Wakeup Sully

As Phil points out, if you put a friction modifier into a friction wet clutch, you end up with poor or no clutch.

The PCV and the choke are two entirely different subjects. The carburettor was set up expecting the PCV to be in place, it will throw out the fueling if not used and if the W plate port is left open, it will really cock it up. It needs refitting pronto. It sounds like you should get someone experien...

6A Kick down cable

There is MEANT to be a loop at idle. You just adjust the cable until it just goes tight near WOT and that's it. If the throttle isn't returning, I can't see how it is down to the kickdown cable as it will be really slack at that point.

SAR Massive irregular misfire

The rotor arm should rotate slightly and spring back when twisted. I have seen a few seized and it means that the advance either doesn't happen or it happens intermittently.

Disconnect the vacuum pipe that goes to the carb and with the dizzy cap off, suck the pipe. The dizzy baseplate should rotate slightly. Stick your tongue over the end of the pipe and check it doesn’t lose vacuum.
I think that Geoff is intimating that the mechanical advance is siezed.
