Motor Trend Roadkill show 'Scimitar'?

My eye was caught by the silhouette of what seemed to be an SE5 or 5A in the background of a recent Roadkill. For those who subscribe, it's Episode 94 where involving the junkyard-rescue of a four-speed big-block ’64 Galaxie. But what is that vehicle behind - not actually a Scim by the looks of it.....

Recommended black sealant for screen rubber splits?

The other way is trim the crack with a new Stanley blade to expose fresh rubber to adhere to. Derek Now that's a great suggestion. My dad was an expert in adhesives (designed the glue that stuck Concorde's tall together so the story goes) and my experience/his input was that it's as much about the ...

SE6A rolling resto - much AGRo

Time for an update. Alternator replaced by high capacity version: http://scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=39707&p=458282#p458282 Rumbled alarmingly when I first started it up – I thought the bearings were shot – but it settled down and now just whines like a supercharger… It has fixed all...

YouTube recommendations

I think it was someone on here who suggested Mighty Car Mods. I go off and on it (not so keen on the Jap stuff) but the supercharged mini series of videos was brilliant and the Skid Factory on the related channel MCM TV2 has some nerdy detail. Tavarish and his Lamborghini rebuild on YouTube kept me ...

Btw, is it usual to have two belt spaces on the front piece?

Essex V6 front pulley(s) alignment SE6A

Oldconn, that's what I expected to see. Harold, I get what you say but that's a lot of holes drilled on one side of an otherwise uniform pulley.

Anyone else got the front pulley with or without holes?

Essex V6 front pulley(s) alignment SE6A

I'm mid timing gear replacement and have hit a snag with the three part front pulley for the power assisted steering model. I unbolted the front section to get access for a socket and removed it, not realising that is not obviously keyed or marked as to which of the 4 ways it can go on is correct. H...

Springs, Dampers and Bushings

Agree with all of the above. Re shock types, Nigel Clark (on here, and writes for practical classics) went Gaz and identified an issue with different spring diameters. https://scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/viewtopic.php?t=31478. However, my memory is that previously he'd identified Gaz as these lasted the...

That one lives around the corner from my sister in law. Often see it parked up when I visit.
