Water loss

Not Scimitar sorry, but no1 son has a van which loses water and overheats. The garage says it is the head gasket. I would have thought that in that case the water would disappear without trace (in the engine). But there is a huge leak from the water pump gasket as far as I can see. The garage says t...

Indicator stalk

I'm sure my Coupé had two stalks originally (well, when I bought it 30 years ago). Also that it didn't have a floor dip-switch. I don't remember where the horn push was.

Today I decided at last to change the water hose, the car started instantly and I reversed out to uncover the inspection pit. And found at least 15 cm of water in the pit :?

Wide Coupé

I came across this image I created a while ago to show how one could accommodate GTE front suspension and 4HA axle in a Coupé (to make it even faster round corners :twisted: )

Indicator stalk

Found mine while looking for something else (which I didn't find) And it doesn't look anything like yours, could it be a dip-switch? The mechanism is fine, complete with spring, but one of the wires has disappeared completely. Probably why I changed it. It should be possible to solder a new wire in,...

Ah yes, well spotted.
I hadn't noticed the sticker on the Touratoto car, I was looking for an AA badge (which wasn't on the car before :roll: )

I think I have one of those in stock.
I'll have a look tomorrow.
The one on the car, however, is off a 5a ;-)
