Goldie the Coupe

on coupe and early SE5 the watts linkages have a smaller bush on each end than normal SE5. The smaller bushes are not available, unless you can find a set NOS. You can get the larger bushes in poly and either get some linkages from a SE5/a or have your original linkages machined out to accept the la...

SE8 Axle noise query

The only problem seems to be to find someone who sells a refurbished axle. Don't know what the situation is like for GTCs, but for the SE5 I keep asking the usual suspects if they have one - and still the answer is "no" as there are no crownwheels and pinions available... Fingers crossed you find a...

How to value a project ??

Good read. A couple of other point which occurred to me that I didn't see mentioned Breaking - as soon as a few parts are gone, a point of (almost) no return is reached. The hard to find bits go straight away, and alot of the remainder are left; no one wants them. So at that point its a pile of junk...

Straight 6 coupe for restoration

Maybe LYX 175D is chassis number 213, listed as white?

LYX175D is on the "unknown cars" page with lots of pictures.

I think 3k for a basket case like that is a bit OTT - am I wrong?!

How to remove the Fuel filler cap

You might be able to see it from underneath but I think you have to remove the panel at the back of the boot, under the latch. Then you can see , possibly through some holes where a pipe slides over the fuel filler. probably a jubilee chip there to undo then wrestle it off Here is what that panel lo...

Tail Lights.

This probably isn't much help but about 10 years ago at autojumbles in the midlands there was a guy selling originals i think for £40 a pair ( or was it each, probably each). One day I decided to man up and buy some (for my TVR) and he didn't have any. I think this was at Stoneleigh. I asked him. He...

I might be finding myself in the area at that time. I can only make one day. Is Saturday the best bet?

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Where the base of the gear stick fits in a slot on the various changer bits on the bearbox there should be a little plastic bush. My gearbox (same as yours) rattles and I bought the bush as part of a "fitting kit" from one of the traders. yet to fit it but I decided that was the likely source of the...

North American Scimitars

Yup - sold the Scimi after 28 years of ownership. New owners are arriving on Sat and driving 900 miles down to SC/GA; Glad to see the car going to folks who can give the car the TLC that it deserves. I lost interest in the car a few years ago and drove it less and less - wanted to pass it on before...
