Wheels specifications

I have run my SE5 with a mish-mash of GTE steel wheels.......probably a mixture of SE5, 5a & 6-series: some have been ventilated. I had 4 new tubeless tyres fitted by a local expert & there was no talk of them only being suitable for tubes only. I don't think tubes were specified when the cars were ...

Correct SE5 Wiper Drive gear ????

It can be the drag caused by seizing wheelboxes, or whatever they're called - nightmare job to replace - certainly on an SE5.

Se5/5a windscreen

Never thought about it before.......was there a mix of laminated & toughened - or were all the screens laminated? I think I have a spare, untinted windscreen in my lock-up......but, no idea what type it is.... :oops:

Blimey! Wish I'd got the dosh, Josh!.......(I'm a poet & don't I know it... :mrgreen: ) If only you'd swap it for a Honda Civic Sport that I cannot afford to insure - because I have no 'no claims' to produce.... :roll: I envy the person who will be snapping your hand off....

Shame, with it being an early example, that an 'Essex' wasn't found for it & the other bits sourced & it got running & used........ :(

1979 Se6a, Restoration or Spares

A great backdrop to the advertised car. Mr. Read was recently hospitalised with pneumonia but is still active in the motorcycling world from what I can see. It would be interesting if he could be contacted about the car & could give his memories of it.....
