Re-site of fuel pump on Sabre MK2

Yes just to the battery box.
Pop riveted the original bracket from the chassis to the box and replaced the rusty self tappers with SS self tappers.

Re-site of fuel pump on Sabre MK2

I moved mine when I had the fuel thank out replacing all the rubber fuel lines. I used the original bracket too.

Registering a scim in spain

oilrag Did you get the GTC onto Spanish plates? I am still stuck, the local car club wanted to do it on historic plates but, they (Government) changed the requirements from 25 to 30 years just before I applied. I have a copy from DARK STAR of the Type approval but with the lock down the Spanish typ...

Replacing gearbox rear oil seal.

Hi Guys
Thanks for the replies. Food for thought. :?
It looks as if I'll just have to try it, one of the reasons I have been reluctant is that 4 of my axle stands are in use supporting my boat trailer. Leaving me just 2 to play with.
Does anyone have the part number of the seal or the dimensions?

Replacing gearbox rear oil seal.

I have a serious leak from the rear gearbox to propshaft oil seal, due I suspect to it hardening with age. Has anybody replaced this without removing engine & G'box? It is the 1800ti. I realize the propshaft will need removing and the rear anti rol bar, also thinking that gearbox mount might also be...

SS1 racer clone

Interesting, the first photo is South end of New Brighton prom on the Wirral, locally known as Harrison Drive. I used to live on the 12th floor of an apartment block overlooking the prom and entrance to the river Mersey. I use to drool over that racer when I visited Graham Walkers in Mollington, pic...

Electric windows

I take your point which is why I put "standard wiring" in my first post.
I meant "working" rather than "original"
Apart from a few difficult to find things, original was not something Reliant did much of. :D

Electric windows

I think you need to look at the "standard wiring"
I have had lots of fun times with a 1995 2 door Toyota Rav4, that had 2 sized motors, operating cables plus dicky switches and fuses.
New switches are cheap as chips and well worth buying new to eliminate them not working.

Rusty bracket is it needed?

Well there you go, done. Had to grind the nose of my pop riveter down as it was too broad to clear the sill.
I used to live in Chester hence the Cheshire bit. :roll:

Rusty bracket is it needed?

Ah, now I understand, it is to drain water that settles in the groove of the weatherstrip, Previously I had been told it was to drain water from inside the door. I removed, cleaned and painted them on earlier SS1's when they were held on with self tappers, but as you can see these are pop riveted on...

Rusty bracket is it needed?

I have the Rusty retaining bracket mounted on the sill, I have some stainless steel that I could use to fab some new ones, but are they really needed and what purpose do they fulfill?

Hi Chris thanks for your help, Chap in local car club (Reus) has just tried to register it as a historic vehicle, but it needs to be 30 years old even though the website says 25 years, Spanish(Catalan) bureaucracy!!! So to avoid the crazy charge I need to have European type approval. Reg Number:- L6...
