SS1 brake pad retaining clips

Phil the 1.3 Turbo were All vented.
So I would presume this kit is for the wider caliper. :cry:

window regulator

Deffo
The Scim system works in a massively different way to most modern systems using cables and pulleys.

Are your calipers standard or vented type ??.

"I thought I'd just put the brakes together and drive it"...

Hi Mikey I have done around 25 conversions to the Lockheed hand brake and I can seriously endorse it. I think its probably a lot cheaper than any other " Upgrade" I have never come across the Disc brake conversion, but each to their own. The handbrake lever is very similar on the SE6 to the Se5 and ...

Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

Flat caps have their uses, Fred Bibnah used his as welding gloves, amongst other`s. Brian obviously used his as PPE for his bonce, but I don`t think it would be up to PPE at work 1982 regs, especially when bouncing arse over tit out of a plane. :bh much like this. Any comment from Steve C on this su...

"I thought I'd just put the brakes together and drive it"...

Easiest and cheapest conversion is Lockheed. SE6a onwards, and should not effect the German MOT as it is still from a Reliant Scimitar. :!: Hand brake turns are fun :wink: I also have Brand New Essex starter solenoids, and also the rebuild kit for the contacts as in your picture. Mikey still with th...

Am I inhibited ?

I have changed a few over the years.
Jim they do fail, but the hardest part is getting the astard off, they use an ally washer to seal the casing and tend to be very tight.

John I`m surprised you can`t find any on line, they fit a lot of Fords.

Coupe Build From Australia

I`m sure Victor will not mind me passing on his message to me, he reports he has been in Hospital`s for Four months now and is currently in a rehab centre for the next few weeks. He has not told me what the problem is, but he does say he is having a drastic life change to work around the health cond...

Superpro Bush Kit - Review

I can see :w here. You need to check which type of bush is fitted to your shockers first. Some of the later types use a sleeved bush, NOT the early " Waisted/hour glass type". SPF0718-95K Gaz and Avo mostly used a plain rubber bonded to an inner sleeve, some actually used Rose bearings. You could en...

Cologne camshaft gear change

I`ve done Two that were recovered from the motorway, both needed valves. And one from Tesco`s that just failed to restart after the owner returned from shopping, that one was ok after wheel replacement. It`s obviously down to where the camshaft stops and how far open the valves are. :w I did have an...

Cologne camshaft gear change

Yes Jim It depends upon revs when it fails. Low revs and you get away with it, Motorway speed does tend to just tap the valves against the piston crown. A compression test before lifting the heads is the best check. I have had them in for repair and it`s not always obvious if more work is needed unt...
