Coupe body on a 5a chassis.

But presumably still within the same overall context and dimensions of being a Coupe?

Coupe body on a 5a chassis.

a number have been done over the years, GW has a beauty in his show room with an se5 front. I do have pictures of the chassis when it was being restored and basic measurements somewhere. I think I may have already added them to this site in the past..... :w :w :w read up on chassis modifications to...

no headlight lifting mechanism with the car though which may be why the "pods" are with it,
Might be ideal if someone fancies attempting a "non-pop-up" conversion, like the ex-Pete Silcock one?

Manny's 78 GTE

Yes. apologies for the late reply, as Philip says vacuum advance increases with vacuum rather than revs - if you give the engine more throttle (ie revs) the vacuum drops to a low figure, whereas with a closed throttle it will be quite high, so it's more accurate to disconnect the vac adv tube and pl...

Andif so, then presumably it would be galvanised and have additional Ti engine mounts too?

Did you remember to disconnect the vacuum advance and plug the tube, while you were setting the timing?

SS1 1800 CVH Project Is this a headlight?

it looks similar to mine but I thought that was not the correct fit as it's not seated fully and the pin orientation is different to the other side which is totally different but that's a Hella not a Lucas see photos I do wonder if the two coloured statements are connected? The alignment pip on the...

SS1 1800 CVH Project Is this a headlight?

Why not use an H4? They fit fine and you can get all sorts of qualities/brightness... Philips racing vision are really good but not longlife. That's what I use - an H4 with a P45T base, so it fits in the hole. The only problem is the range in that fitting is more limited. You can get adaptors for P...

SS1 1800 CVH Project Is this a headlight?

Are you absolutely sure a P45T bulb won't fit? It looks (as far as you can tell from a photo) like a P45T. I seem to remember that re-attaching the spring clip was quite awkward, a bit more so than normal ones. Here's a picture of mine (only with the bulb fitted, I'm afraid, I didn't photograph it e...

NUmber plate readers

The car park I have been using has its cameras low down - about knee height so I would expect it to be the same with the SS1 if it was a height issue - I just think it cannot read white on black and only reads black on white Sounds like a rather half-hearted security system if the camera is at knee...

NUmber plate readers

I have noticed that car park number plate readers don't work when I'm in the Coupe therefore I have to use the ticket to get out. I assume its because the plate is black with white numbers - does this also mean that speed cameras will not work either - anyone know ? I think it's probably because th...

So house sale fell through. We were supposed to exchange this week and buyer pulled out. No excuse. 4 months build up. :evil: sorry to hear that Mike, that's terrible after all this time. :cloud: The system really needs an overhaul, (from what I've heard the Scottish system is a much better example...
