Merchandise postage

My Quest for Alternate Wheel Rims

It also depends on the design of the rim edge. If there's a chunky edge, you need to "add" more clearance (positive offset); a slimline rim edge will allow you to run a bit less offset. Going up to 15" rims gives you (by design) a little more clearance against the wishbone. My suspicion is going to ...

Ss1 v6!!!?

Given what a DET is capable off it is difficult to see the logic of any such engine changes. A V6 is likely to upset the cars balance. I get the technical challenge. Some markets (the US, primarily) prefer multiple cylinder/large capacity options over forced induction 4-pots, which was always a des...

eBay parts!

The discs will be wrong.

If still on the original front dampers, they’re knackered after 2000 miles, let alone 100,000!

ScimFest @ Curborough 17-19 August 2018

Online booking is normally added at the same time as the Slice with the form arrives on the doormat - I assume this year will be the same?

MOT changes

Gentlemen, Before this thread turns into a full-on slanging match, locked and lost as a valid discussion point, can we leave the Off Topic feelings out of this? There are those who don't do Facebook the same as there are those who don't do the forum - neither should be ostracised or criticised for t...

Ford's SS1

White/blue wire is for the electric autochoke heater on an earlier 1600 - goes from the alternator to the carb.

The missing item on the fan motor is a suppressor don’t worry about it unless you are an avid listener of TalkSport on MW, or Radio4 on LW
