Feet would be better, but might be tricky if, like Jim, you've got a webasto roof?

What model do I have is it a 6 or 6A

Worth noting that the chassis numbers start at 1001, so there were only 551 Se6 made, of which yours is number 420 :)

timing wheel

Reputable Ford engine specialists, like Burton Power, Ric Wood, or Car Clinic ( Essex Engines), can normally supply the steel ones (as per Mike's link) or the quieter alloy ones. Also the Club traders may have them, and as Mike said, there have been previous bulk buys arranged through the forum. Met...

Coincidentally, one of those Carver Ones turned up at Southern Classics' most recent show. You're right about the cost - apparenty lack of demand at 30,000 euros resulted in the manufacturer going bust!

pop-up headlights

Owen Sedanca (As you may have guessed, work is not holding my attention today. :D ) Interesting that the Owen Sedanca came from the pen of Chris Humberstone, the same man who was behind the Rapport Forte that I mentioned in the "what cars have you seen?" thread. :) I saw one of the Sedancas in a Ja...

I thought the Coupe was early engine front dipstick so has your engine been replaced?

Very early Scimitars had a mechanical fan, but it was soon replaced by electric, and the mechanical one became an option for towing, but in both cases the mechanical fans were mounted on the crank pulley.

Front timing cover help

I didn't ask because, from memory, the OP's Essex is in a TVR, so I thought there may be some TVR-specific reason (which I'm not aware of) for asking the question?

Could be the "clutch fork widget" that RR mentioned earlier, that has fallen out - try adjusting the clutch, if there's enough adjustment left, you may be able to get it working again.

ScimFest @ Curborough 17-19 August 2018

What does everybody do for lunch? I assume there will be at least a hamburger stall, or a food truck? Which days will you be there? On the Saturday and Sunday, the resident burger shack is usually open at lunchtime. Hopefully that will be the same this year? :) If you'll be there on the Friday (or ...

Front timing cover help

I thought the idler pulley came in with the later, uprated, engine, which also had the rear sump, so they are mutually exclusive?
