Problem with rocker arm

Hi Eric, that's a great trip, sounds more like a wartime patrol in a Typhoon! :D

Low Oil Pressure Se6a

The Bosch filter is the best of the rest....but I am still surprised people will spend thousands restoring an engine then put cheapo oil in it with a non motorcraft efl90 filter. I find the Mann filters are just as good as the so-called EFL90, which are probably not made by Ford anyway. I am using ...

Well here goes!

Yes the theory behind that is that a slight amount of movement in the UJs is needed to spread the grease around the needles; but in reality the axle is never still for more than a few seconds, even when cruising along a flat motorway. Even if the alignment is perfect with an unladen car at rest, jus...

Well here goes!

When I put a 5A gearbox in my 6A car, I found I had to take the spacers out in order to align the tailshaft with the propellor shaft, without fouling the crossmember behind the gearbox. Obviously that also alters the tilt of the engine , which in turn affects the connections to the radiator and heat...

Land Rover Clutch Hydraulics

So, job done using the adaptor from Rallydesign, with an excellent result. Pedal travel is slightly shorter than before, but not obviously heavier, and the bite point and take-up are just how I like it. Thanks everybody for your suggestions! :D

Seized engine help

Don't overlook the fact that the bores and pistons are not the only components which can suffer from standing long periods. People tend to just put an engine aside and (maybe) cover it with a sack or a tarpâulin (or not) and forget it. Inside is the old oil , and they think that will help to preserv...

Classic Days 29-30 Aug 2020

We were last there in 2015 on the wettest weekend of the year. That's where I first met John. We had a great weekend (four of us) and I found Magny to be a great spectator circuit, with superb grandstands and plenty of refreshment facilities & bars- plus easy access to the pitlane & garages to get r...

Manual Gearbox Conversion Kit £350 East Sussex

Yes, Mine for example! However, the comment about hydraulic cylinders confuses me. Didn't the SE5A have vacuum-assisted brakes? How canthe master cylinders be the same size?

He says the brake & clutch master cylinders are the same size, so it wasn't intended for a SE6

Just for info, I have inscribed myself & Candy for this event, to be held at Magny-Cours this year (last year it was at Le Mans). Also for info, RSSOC is now on the list of clubs recognised by these organisers, so if the day ever dawns when we get 10 or more Reliants together(that'll be the day!!) w...
