Re: How many times have you broken down

A few times but only once had to be "carried" home with a Scimitar when a stone went clean through the rad (5A) - at all other times I have been able to fix the problem at the roadside myself - not bad for 28 years with Scims.

Re: My SS1 project - rebuild & Zetec engine upgrade

Get the right kind of foam and its fine - especially if you spray the inside of the tubes with waxoil, add the foam then paint over the end.

Re: trichloroethylene

Used it in the RAF and at work thereafter - and the others listed - as you say Jim it was good for cleaning your hands with - that's you and me buggered.

Re: My SS1 project - rebuild & Zetec engine upgrade

Did you seal off the trailing arm tubes - they hold water nicely if the car is parked pointing downhill. Either weld the ends up or fill with expanding foam.

Re: Forgotten Fiberglass (.com)

Probably a job for one of the clubs management teams rather than just "anybody". Looks to be an interesting site at first glance - I will have to spend a bit more time looking at it when I get the time.

They look ok to me as long as they are not too long and touching the inlet manifold below the carb.

Re: LKO 291P Normandy' SE5a progress - brakes ?

Nice cars to work on as well - lift the bonnet and sit on the wheel. One bad job to do though - changing the rear spring.

I had one Herald ( my first car ) which was horrible but then two Vitesses and a GT6 which were all brilliant.

PS Just seen that in an earlier mail you say the battery is "top notch" - how do you know that. Even if it is brand new it could be faulty - faulty cell perhaps. Try it on another car to see if it is in fact ok.

OK - do you have anything which could be draining the battery an alarm system is the favourite of course. Try disconnecting the battery between use see if that makes a difference.
