SE6A Distributor

I recently purchased the accuspark kit for replacing the bosch distributor/coil leads and plugs. The quality is good but not amazing, the distributor cap and rotor felt a bit cheap but the leads were very good. The casing of the distributor didn't feel as good as the original but for a low mileage c...

I also saw the same thing when doing mine. Just chiseled the extra bit off.

I need to change the heater matrix too, but may leave that for a later date as I don't want to dismantle any more for now!
I think you are very close to getting the matrix out. with the dash top off you will have easy access to it when you take the cetre console out.

Have you tried your insurance ? Carole Nash replaced mine through a local glass fitter they suggested.

New Shocks and Bushes

I believe the spax shocks were designed for the se5 and it is assumed they will fit the se6a but the top and bottom brackets are wider on se6 than se5. I don't think the se5 has top hat washers. Because of these top hat washers the eyes of the support bracket are larger than the eye of the bushes on...

SE6 Not Starting

I once started the car without the spare wheel tray fitted. It decided to use the wiper motor earth and burnt through the loom :(.
lucky for me it only melted the tape around the loom and none of the other wires were affected. I added a thick wire direct from the batter to the engine.

Silicone hoses for waterless coolant - overkill or prudence?

The waterless coolant Is a great idea but... you will need 10L + 10L of prep solution. You are looking at about £200 :shock: I believe the prep solution can be reused. It doesn't clean... it just removes the water. I have upgraded any off the shelf hoses with silicone as the kevlar re-inforced ones ...

Clutch differences old and new

The correct flat face bearing is £72 from QRG but doesn't come with the carrier. it looks like you have one anyway on the bearing on the LHS

I had to get brutal with the old bearing to remove it from the carrier

Timing wheel - is this normal

yes both gears are the correct way round. the timing marks are only on one side. I believe it is the correct Cam wheel, it came with as part of the group buy from SA and included a matching crankshaft gear. yes the cam wheel is sitting nicely on the crankshaft. its pretty well seated with only a cou...
