Apparently what I am looking for is a number 15 ...

plus of course the cover plate which costs as much in postage as it does to buy :roll:

Would the 0800748 number to the right hand side of the description be a Ford FINIS number?

EDIT: Looks to be...

If it's not a Reliant part number?
In any case it will be simpler to order in the UK, our nearest Ford dealer is in Cannes and will certainly need the registration document of the Ford Sierra in question to be able to find it on his computer :mrgreen:

Incredible.
I looked up the part number (which is indeed Ford, well done Phil) and I can buy it on the internet in the UK, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Latvia and probably Botswana.
But not in France, what a surprise.

That's the O ring I mentioned Chris. Square shouldered IIRC. I'm sure you could just buy one that fits.

Not necessarily for a car.

Edit:- And there are two of them :wink:

Chris, I've just been out to the garage and had a look through my box of miscellaneous oil seals and gaskets and found these :-

Do you want them ?

Edit:-They are the correct ones.

The numbers on the left are the Reliant part numbers. The numbers in the "Remarks" column, where given (only for Ford items of course) are Ford numbers. It's a very useful starting point. :)

Yes please Steve!
How many beer tokens do you want?

Please post direct to the garage -
Garage Cluzel
35 Route de Lyon
69890 La Tour-de-Salvagny

PS that's rather a nice caliper gauge, mine is ancient mechanical (but it does have a vernier scale :) )

No worries Chris. The price of the postage is all I want.

Oh, and maybe a covering note in your bestest French to pop in the envelope !

Great thanks, let me know and I'll PayPal you.

For the garage keep it simple -

OK, no worries.

Hopefully, I'll get them down to the post office tomorrow. I can't see it costing more than a couple of quid.

Thanks to Steve, who should have received a small PayPal.

But no-one seems to have a number 16 (pair of), even Burton's and QRG.
Anyone know the dimensions and I'll make the blighters ... PLEEZE

Paypal received, thanks Chris.

I've not long since got a rid of a spare Cologne engine (loosely put back together). I could've measured them for you :roll:
