Help refitting distributor please

Oh, and this may be a daft question, but your photos seem to have been taken without the inlet manifold fitted? It's normal to fit that before the dizzy (I believe it may be possible, but the dizzy gets in the way)

Wheel options??

All that salt is less than ideal for aluminium wheels which quickly corrode. For that, steel wheels are just stronger and more durable. Fair enough, if being steel is the most important criterion, then you could also consider Weller Wheels (though I see an offer of 4 steels has popped-up on your ot...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Having said that, I've just remembered that OYT633F is earlier in this thread and currently very much on the road See this post from Jeff. So that may be a false alarm. The car in the ad does look very similar, and both V8s too

Do we have a date for the car & classic ad?

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Looks like it was a nice car "back in the day" too, problem is if it's been off the road since '94, that's before the digital photography era for most people, so any photos are probably hiding in dusty boxes somewhere... Ah, but I wonder..... Yes, Jeff Craske is one of the people who has sorted out ...

Wheel options??

Good point Phil, simply put, anything except another set of wolfrace will need different nuts. Depending on what you end up doing with your spare, you may need to remember to carry a spare set of nuts to match, in case you need to use it.

Wheel options??

While it may not be the only reason, I'm guessing that your choice of steels is perhaps influenced by the fact that you think they'll be cheapest, due to being the "basic" option? That's understandable, but it may be worth widening your search to include the Dunlop composite chrome/alloys. They were...

Spegru SE6a

While Raydyots were, as said, the standard fitment, note that they were modified with a different bracket to make them rear-mounted, rather than overhead-mounted :)

Supercar run-out

The Sabre looks good Chris, and very much at home in the surroundings! :D

You say they are "discreetly marketed", they're only a few miles from our noggin (on the other side of Horsham), but I hadn't heard of them - mind you I'm unlikely to buy a million-pound car anytime soon :lol:

Guide to the Se6a Cooling System

The original bungs did have a small hole to allow air to escape as the bottle fills (and re-enter as it empties), due to the warming-up and cooling-down of the engine. The bungs were a fairly tight fit in the bottle but I guess they would pop-out if they didn't have a bleed hole, as the bottle fille...

The myth of the water tight rear hatch...

Although, these days, the body seal that's normally supplied is a tubular door seal, it's worth bearing in mind that that wasn't what was originally fitted - it was a single lip-type seal. See this thread for more details
