Where can I buy new SE6a rear brake drums?

Hi Mark

If you get no joy from the suggested suppliers I have a few Good used, and iirc a New pair hidden somewhere.

If you want to PM where your stopping in London I could look at shipping them.

Body of my Se5a

Eric are you not based in UK. As for the body cracks, Jim is correct in that it is the bonded steel work that has corroded and expanded within the GRP. I have remanufactured these reinforcing Cill plates in galvanised steel. I also have new internal hinge mounting/adjuster plates in Stainless Steel ...

Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

Well thought out scmarf about the braiding being an ideal earth route. That happened to me with exactly the same pipe on my SE6a, it touched a live point in the engine bay and burst, squirting oil all over the place and luckily didn`t set fire to owt. Ironically Aeroquip braided pipes normally come ...

The "Mighty" SE6 - Internal Recycling

Rubber gaskets are only worth the extra price if all the inlet gasket edges are trimmed and not protruding. The rocker covers are flat and straight, and don`t over tighten them. Normal "Cheap" cork gaskets are good enough if you prepare the mounting surfaces properly. I always make certain the press...

Seat Diaghragms

The OE manufacturers were VITAFOAM in Manchester. I tracked them down a few years ago and they still had the moulds BUT they wanted a set up charge AND a minimum order of around a Thousand to remanufacture them. Victor are there any manufacturers details on the other side of the webbing?. Then we al...

GTC Hazard Switch

Andrew it could be both reasons, the New housings and Chrome housing/Nacelle could be cracked or broken. I have found that Reliant fitters ground/filed the chrome housings to get a better fit on the plastic switch housings. Obviously the headlight legend can be swapped over for which operation you r...

Andreas what part of the housing is broken, perhaps a picture would be better.?

I keep NEW housings in stock, plus I have a few of the Chrome housings that the switches clip into??.

Inserts for badges

Never noticed it before. Jim my A plater has a galve chassis, but NOT the front armature/steelwork, as a result its all rotted out and looks like I`m going into production with Zintec sheet fabrication. Although I DID know that the "B" and GTC usually only had the large shield on the front and did a...

My late SE6a has the steel ones on the B post AND Rear lettering.
Interestingly, and I never noticed before, my A plate 6b does not have B post GTE badge nor holes for them :?:
