Offside window - Scimitar SS1

Phil, I don’t suppose you have any frames in serviceable condition? Ah, an enquiry I usually tend to sidestep. The question is not whether I have them, but rather whether I have enough to spare any and at what price. Money is pretty easy to make, more quaterlights however.... Let me have a look and...

the DVLA are useless

Sorry to hear of your loss but with regard to the transfer of keeper and any VED cancellation could you not have done it all online? Last couple of cars bought or sold I have done it this way, instantaneous change of details and the logbooks have simply been torn up as per submission agreement. New ...

Offside window - Scimitar SS1

Colour of the writing on the windows will tell you if it's tinted (black writing) or clear (white writing)

I have spares here and have no qualms posting of you can't collect from Sheffield (just off Jct 31 of M1)

SS1 Records

To a point yes. The claw edged discs were the original fitment on 1300 steels and I've had a very original '88 1400 on them. But I think they may have switched away to the 8 spoke design at some point for the later 1400 and low spec later 1600. From memory these are the same as the stock RPW has / h...

Straightening buckled wheels

LOL

So long as you don't forget to put it away and you greet it in the morning with your foot.

I wouldn't get too hung up on wheel run-out. Most well used wheels are rarely straight! You would be surprised what can be balanced up and run without any sign of fault.

SS1 Project

Roy at towing a frames developed an auto clutch conversion system. His other half has leg problems I believe.

They own or owned a few Scimitars

You mean 3.38 or 3.14 diff. I have a 3.38 when you need one...

If a full engine and box swap was being considered, then would there be mileage in looking to move the assembly forward and reworking the shock absorbers. might just get the fat part of an auto box clear of the pinch point ?

back end

There is only so much you can achieve without a whole extra lot of work. If panels or frame components have been swapped then it will always have a knock on effect. No two panels were drilled and mounted in exactly the same way. Work from the least adjustable items out and don't obsess with the size...

Hot starting problem

Water in the fuel?

Recirculating fuel system can give the impression of a "hot running problem" when actually it's the agitation of fuel and water giving an emulsion after a while of running.

Otherwise I would look at breakdown of the ignition amplifier.

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

Cobra Imola series of seats has always been my favourite. Shoulder wings aren't too big yet they are a nice supportive seat. With the pro-fit padding range you can switch pads about to suit your preferences. I did have a pair of "Imola S" (that's S for small!) seats in the loft for years, but when w...

Mention of the "wow" plate would have been made, mainly in my campaign to persuade you to buy it then. Would have been spring 2012

I did go to view it back in 2012 and recall posting a detailed description and pictures but alas like so much useful information it's been deleted from the board in the name of tidiness. :roll:

SS1 1800 CVH Project More wiring queries

There are two different wiring sets dependent on distributor. The brown wire on the Lucas 3 pin plug would normally earth to the body of the distributor - never seen one to the rocker cover bolt, that's certainly not the original arrangement. For the Bosch (3 lug, long body, blue cap) it's only a 2 ...
