Joe's 1972 GTE - A Small Update...

T5 Gearbox I've bought a gearbox... I Spent ages looking for a decent Cosworth gearbox at a reasonable price and to be quite honest I struggled, Some sellers were after £1200 for a gearbox that almost certainly needed a complete rebuild... (which costs IRO £1500+ If you send it to a specialist.) I'...

I've just had a look in my copy of the owners manual and strangely it doesnt show the air box at all! though I suppose they may have taken it off for the photos? http://www.industrialbritain.co.uk/forumstuff/s6coupe/99.jpg http://www.industrialbritain.co.uk/forumstuff/s6coupe/100.jpg If you have som...

A straight 6 Air box / filter question!

I recently bought an origonal Reliant air box for my Straight 6. Just wondering if anyone has got a picture of how exactly it should mount on to the carbs? Is it just held on by the base of the air filter or is there a metal / rubber adaptor to bolt on? Heres a couple of pics: http://www.industrialb...

Joe's 1972 GTE - A Small Update...

Joe , tell us more about the head work . Are these the heads off the old engine or a spare pair? Who did you use to fit the inserts? Did you come to any conclusion as to why the hardened seat fell out ? Hi Roy, Those are the heads off the old engine I was keen to keep them as they have been gas flo...

A Small update...
 Or is it just far away?
 The heads have come back from the machinist, new valve seats have been fitted. So all they really need now is the valves lapping in and they can be built back up again. Slightly bizarrely they took it upon themselves to reface the inlet seats as well, I’m...

Collective Head Scratch - Exhaust Wrap ?

I've tried it in the past when I was when I was trying to lower the underbonnet temperatures on my 5a. I bought 20m worth and there were about 3 or 4 metres left once I'd done both sides. Its actually suprisingly hard to fit the wrap with the exhausts on the car... In the end I'm not sure it made th...

Joe's 1972 GTE - MOT'd

Joe, last summer I collected all the parts to complete a mazda rx8 5speed conversion including the adaptor plate. The ratios are identical to the Ford type 9 five speed. You can have cable or hydraulic clutch. The input shaft is the same so you can use the Essex clutch, flywheel and pressure plate....

Phil how rare is the Yellow needles on the instruments?.
I reckon they're the standard orange ones but faded?
Mine were very similar - Actually very easy to take the front off the cluster and respray the needles using paper to mask off behind them!
