Lighter Spare Wheel

That is usually the case isn't it! I think you're quite entitled to call your break down service out for any puncture and in many situations I certainly would. The brother got caught out years back driving one of my Scimitars when it got a flat. No spare wheel as the space was occupied by an interco...

Lighter Spare Wheel

I've run golf and MX-5 space savers. Remember also that the Sabre has one as standard and that the 15x7j wheels (where fitted) will not fit back in the engine bay without deflating the tyre and persuading it into a flattened shape! Hence why Reliant supplied a vinyl cover to put the full size wheel ...

SST 1.4

Is that a drain tap at the bottom? Presumably it's easily removed otherwise fitting the radiator in the armature could be a struggle.

Looks good otherwise!

1979 Se6a, Restoration or Spares

Good plate for any fan of Dead Can Dance

Not quite enough of justification for me acquiring a Scimitar I fear however!

Driving test reality check

Could well be "ten to two" position. My time telling skills and my driving skills are at times both questionable. Whilst passing my driving test just over a decade ago was easy enough I did another for the towing last year and that took two attempts. Something about "not making progress" i.e driving...

Driving test reality check

Simple. Don't resist what you are being told and listen to your instructor, do that and you will pass your test. Whether you continue to drive to "test standard" is up to you. In response to your two examples. Feeding the wheel between your hands at the quarter to three position is the safest way of...

Top wishbone bolt... Tears before bedtime...

T25 1/4 bit with a slot ground in the back. Bent length of rod with the end hammered flat to slot in to the bit. Join with gaffer tape. Perfect tool for slackening the hard to reach fixings in the door jamb. Heat may not be the best idea. I have heard of melting the zinc and fusing the bolt in good ...

Top wishbone bolt... Tears before bedtime...

If it's that bad then inner wing of bit inner and outer wing off. Why restrict your access and make the job so difficult

Front Wheel Bearings - The quest to find an alternative

The avenue I have wondered about was new billet aluminium hubs that take a common bearing and an off the shelf or minimally modified vented disc.

1800ti spax

I suppose as required was not the right term. They are required as standard, within you often have to open the brackets up a bit to ease them in. As required if you got different shock absorbers which can have a wider end. Not getting into the later shock absorber placements for cars with the notche...

1800ti spax

Very usefully the parts manual doesn't show the spacer. I may have mis-remembered it being on the engine side. TBF it's more of an "as required" thing, but as standard they did originally have them, and going by the photo below, to the front is the logical location.
