Mikey Bikey's Scimega

I know what you mean, but you just have to say sod it some times! It’s all fused, what’s the worse that could happen? :lol:

My midlife GTC

No brake fluid should be in the servo. When I bought my 6a it had a new master cylinder and callipers fitted. The servo was full of old brake fluid, presumably the PO couldn’t get the brakes working so kept changing parts. Is it possible the cars had a MC change and the fluids been in the servo ever...

V6 Custom Exhaust Headers ?

I used two of those flexible pipes on JKL when she was single turbo. Came out of the turbo in 4” and then Y pieces down to two 2” pipes (because of ground clearance issues) used those to form the bend. So only about a foot from the turbo! They were recycled from her 2.9 guise. I always saw them as a...

Power steering for SE6

Unless I happened to have all the donor parts to convert a non power 6 series to power I don’t think I would use the standard setup if I wanted to do that conversion.

Instead I would look at the electric power steering conversions.

I believe Peter Freeman has done a few and can comment?

The Racy Red Bakery Truck.

I havnt read all the way back through but wasn’t there a low oil pressure issue in the past too?

Does seem that unfortunately the only real solution will be full strip down.

At least you have easy access to a known spare!

Good luck mate

Proposed Drives Meeting January

efi_sprintgte ? I don’t intend to upset anyone and the written word can be taken in a manner other then intended but do we need a drivers meeting at all? The SSSC is simply acedemic now. Personally I intend to run in CM (as Craig says it doesn’t suit my car at all) and simply concentrate on scratch...

"Mighty" SE6 - Rock and Roll!

Is it a new symptom? I have had filters with issues but to be honest it sounds more like bottom end wear. Might be worth just chucking your other filter on and seeing if it goes away. See if 20w60 restores the pressure abit (one engine we had went on for about 50,000 miles before we eventually gave ...

"Mighty" SE6 - Rock and Roll!

What rpm is it showing when the pressure drops out?

I would go down the EFL90 oil filter and maybe some penrite 20W60 route to see if that cures the issue
