    Welcome, I too have an S3, not an SE though, not far from you in Richmond, TX.
    Did I perchance reply to you on another forum?

    I saw what they did in the movie, but that's not what happened in fact. Fancy that, the movies inventing stuff!

    Exactly, they had quick-change pads and discs. They didn't change wishbones etc.

    Re: Do you recognize this wheel?

    If you want to know if your wheels are magnesium, shave a tiny sliver from somewhere invisible and try to light it. You'll soon know!

    Re: Do you recognize this wheel?

    I think they might be Aluminium Minilites, made by Tech Del, the original maker.

    I thought it a good tale, good entertainment, and has done a lot for the memory of Ken Miles, which is a very good thing.

    As an ex-British Merchant Navy seaman, I hate to see ships like this. If they can't be properly preserved, then they should be scrapped. Every ship I sailed on has been scrapped (or wrecked). It's...

    Re: Best looking cars of all time

    Any such list that doesn't include the Lotus Elite type 14 is desperately lacking!

    BTW, Bugattis type 57 had many body styles. Which do you mean? Any or all? Talbot Lagos likewise.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Anyone running NGK spark plugs?

    No, the 6s are the 6s and the 5s are the 5s. They have slightly different specifications. All manufacturers have plugs with different heat ranges, you moved from one range to another.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Anyone running NGK spark plugs?

    The 6 is a harder plug than the 5, that is it runs a bit colder and is marginally less tolerant of contamination, like oil.

    For most of your description it sounds like a clutch actuation problem, like fluid not returning to the master cylinder. Right now your clutch is almost fully disengaged.

    The crankshaft thread was much beloved by Austin. It appeared on Austin Seven crankshaft and half-shafts long before the A-type.

    Does the MGB have a voltage stabiliser for gauges? Could the pump be wired from that, in error?
