SST H993WGF

Is it an optical dillusion, or is it an eccentric cam?
Could have been used for a manual fool pump possibly?

Oval port Essex heads

Brake adjuster

Brian I have a few, it would seem each manufacturer used slightly different sizes, so unless you can confirm the EXACT length of yours for a match, you will need a matched pair.
Confirm your address by PM and I will pop a pair in the post.

GTC hardtop fixings

Chimp and Coastline I will be making some in the same design as Reliant supplied, same as the item pictured in the centre of Coastline`s picture at the beginning of this thread.
I know there is a newer type out there, just like Billy Sims offering.

SST RECORDS, HELP PLEASE

Hi Jim
#32 is H993 WGF, Blue, will get some more info from my mate tomorrow.

H991 WAS owned by a Guy from just up the road from me, but he will not answer his phone so I don`t know if he still has it.
Will take a guess that its #29

Gaskets fitment for a new WEBER carb

Mark you need to be talking to Steve, he set it up before it was exported?.
The 1/2" take off should be connected to the one way breather valve on the rocker cover, its an emission requirement.
The W plate is an atomiser to help spread the fuel around the induction chamber.
