And that was Craig’s fault. He was loitering outside the tent at curbs trying to convince me it would improve my chances at chatting up women / make me rich / improve my looks etc etc.
Well Mikey, which one was it? We need to know. :lol:
It was the big white tent ?

Maybe a daft question - split pin removal

That sounds sensible although you'll probably need a carbide drill and tap as it will be b***dy hard.

If you can't tap it then just drill out the whole pin.

Coil Earth

Yup, the points are either faulty or have been wired incorrectly as I suggested in my post below. :wink: As you have proven the earth to the points is sound, Terry's suggestion to change to a points-replacement module is a good one. If you don't want to stretch to an Aldon Ignitor then something lik...

Coil Earth

Test between the earth-side of the points and battery +ve. You should get 12v if the earth is OK.

Now test between the 12v on the points themselves to earth. If this doesn't drop to zero when the points are closed then the points must be faulty.

Coil Earth

As Will says, it looks as if you have either no earth connection to the points or that the points aren't closing properly. To check this first measure the resistance across the points to make sure they're actually closing and making good contact. If that's OK run a temporary earth to the earth-side ...

Rear axle hubs

I have a large Disc puller with Four holes for the studs that clamps against the flat face of the hub and the jacking bolt presses directly onto the Nose of the shaft. A brilliant bit of kit, I borrowed exactly the same thing from a friend. I discovered that the best way was to fully tighten it, ap...

Rear hub bearings

Sounds like a good idea but I don't think you could use single ball bearings as they wouldn't take the extremely high lateral loading. Don't forget that the preload is set across both half-shafts so the bearings share the lateral load. You couldn't easily do this with sealed bearings, taper or other...

CHASSIS, SE5 SS1/T/SABRE

Hi Mark,

I'm interested in the shockers/springs and the later HG.

I know the front shockers are the same late Coupe & SE5 but are the rears the same?

Do let me know the various prices. Perhaps we can arrange payment & delivery along with the heads. :wink:

Regards,
David.

CHASSIS, SE5 SS1/T/SABRE

Hi Mark,

Do you have any ride-height adjustable front shockers to fit the Coupe/SE5?
Also, I'll probably need some Reinz head gaskets :wink: ?

Coil Earth

No earth needed to the case of the coil. The only earth connection will be through the points (or replacement module) to the -ve coil terminal. The +ve coil terminal should have either 9v or 12v feed (depending on whether or not you have a ballast or eureka wire) to it through the ignition switch. W...

oil pressure figures after scare

Tickover oil pressure is good so I wouldn't think there's a general problem. The pressure relief valve may be a little lazy but that's nothing really to worry about, it's an easy fix. If the engine is using a lot of oil then it may need work eventually but it should go on for years if you keep it to...
