C3 emptying

I'd forgotten about the TC - I think it has a drain plug accessible once the cover plate is off. Must have a look!

C3 emptying

Hi All I decided to change the filter in my C3 gearbox, and after removing the sump I collected about 5 litres of fluid - Including the puddle on the floor - why didn't anyone think to put a drain plug in there???? The Brooklands book claims that the box capacity is 7.5 litres so there must be some ...

FRONT HUB INNER BEARING OIL SEAL

The innermost ring is listed in the Reliant parts book as 211184 - cup, inner bearing abutment. It's not really part of the oil seal and shouldn't wear out.

Essex water pump to thermostat hose

It's heater hose isn't it? If I remember right 18mm fits on the pump then you need a piece of plastic garden hose to "adapt" the thinner stub on the thermostat.

Name that part!

I thought Roger had cracked it but my panel in the first two pics doesn't match up with the inner wing and doesn't have the curve on its front edge. I resorted to the parts list to see what the inner wing panels should be and they look pretty much like what I have in my second pics . Parts 31 and 32...

Power Steering Leak

AFAIK it's for emergency use in cooling systems, never heard of it in connection with PAS. There are liquids that claim to swell seals but I've never used them.

Name that part!

I don't think I can award any cigars yet, these are the front splash shields - IMG_0907.JPG - I think,although they would need trimming to clear the wishbones- and the lower one in the pic also fits in the rear arch. I may have confused the issue by posting photos of both sides of the mystery panel,...

C3 box-cooler pipe

Yet another pipe has given up on the 6a, this time it's the upper one from the auto box to the oil cooler. Does anyone have one for sale?

TIA

About a foot square, resembles the inner wing shields but bigger and a funny shape. Any suggestions?
