heater fan switch voltage

Prime suspect is the “Ignition Control “ fuse - pull it out and check the brass ears are giving enough clamping force.

Red 1970 SE5 at H&H, Buxton, tomorrow...

Biggest clue (aside from finding the chassis number stamped in the upright) would be underneath - if it's got the mountings for the tubular crossbrace under the rear of the sump (inner edges of the chassis rails) like your SE5, then it's highly likely to be an SE5 chassis. If it's got a flat plate u...

DVLA says no MoT results but I think that means it’s been declared exempt rather than expired a long time ago.

As would the rest of the body, Geoff. No doubting it is a 5a body. The question is if the reg number matches the chassis or not.

Or a 5 trying to look (ish) like 5a?

Plus side - looks like a tidy body. I’m not sure it belongs to the chassis (or number) though.

.however dash is 5 ! The dash looks like it came from an SE5 originally. Still has the 5a gauges and switchgear as far as I can see. The centre console vents match with the 5a heater arrangement (as seen from the engine bay) but no picture of what might have been done with the dash vents at either ...

ss1 classic targa rally car

That's one of the few self-preservation techniques of the CVH - if it runs out of oil, the tappets generally let you know first! I assume you did the cam bedding-in procedure (something like 2500rpm for several minutes)? Could just be it needs setting up on a rolling road for fuelling and ignition -...
