Indicator stalk assembly SE5a

I bought a new replacement from Nigel at QRG in 2018, Lucas, marked on box as Switch 119sa with number 30423. Found one at an autojumble soon after :( , from memory the guy told me it was off a Cortina but side by side it looks identical. Happy to send you the switch I removed and see if you can sal...

some bits for sale-suit various scimitars "PICS ADDED"

Likely heading over in the Fife direction in the next few weeks, is the older style drivers seat still available?

Thanks

Otter switch seals

While tidying up the wiring last year I noticed the switch was beginning to push out. On closer inspection, the seal was partially split as if the clip had sliced it allowing the clip to force its way out sideways. Never had a problem with them before but this seal was not much more than two years o...

My choice of vehicle not to do this event in must be the Landrover, just hope they're not standard seats :lol: :lol: Learned to drive in a series 1 and can also vouch for those seats. Had the same thought/pain when the old lady passed by on Monday night near Fort William. :shock: Not for the faint-...

Brake servo

I had the Girling MKIIB servo fitted to my 5a reconditioned by CBC Classic Car Spares. It takes longer but looks to be a good job :)

Thanks for posting the spectator times Chris, the last cars left Roy Bridge at 8.50pm I counted about 40 still on the go :D Though I was the only one around, Spean Bridge junction was a great place to watch with this MGB unsure of which way to go a Saab 99 not even on the right map - glad to be of s...

Broken Boffin

Good to hear the repair is moving on, I spoke with the local GRP boatbuilder I mentioned only this week to see if he might look at a small repair for me - he's fully booked until next November :(

Broken Boffin

Sorry to see the damage. Goodridge hoses have been good for me too. :) We've a local boatbuilder specialising in GRP and he has offered to do any repairs on my car. Not sure how well the skills transfer from boats to cars but boatbuilders might be worth a shout if you are struggling to find anyone e...

Axle pinion nut too tight or to slack?

A belated thanks for all the help:) I've been messing about since, checking this and that as the new seal is leaking too. :( I checked the seal was seated correctly, noted that there was very slight wear at the flange/seal but the seal seemed to make a good tight fit. As suggested it took exactly 10...

Se5/5a windscreen

The RSSOC keep a stock of heated screens that are apparently often cheaper than new unheated.

I have an unwanted unheated laminated screen but it has begun to turn a milky white along the lower edge, the reason I removed it.

Axle pinion nut too tight or to slack?

Thanks for the idea but doesn't seem to make it any easier. The marks I'm trying to line up are on the pinion shaft and nut but not the flange. Would I be right in saying that it is easy to release the pressure on the preload but hard to re-load. So where I could undo the nut with an 8" long wrench ...
