Another petrol tank

Chris, to answer your first question, yes that looks like a normal Coupe tank :D

automatic GTE or GTC

I won't make too much comment on prices of GTC's, as I've seen great cars go for very little and mediocre cars go for surprisingly more than you would expect! It's located in Kettering - same town as QRG, so *may* have been regularly maintained at one of the marques few specialists. Of course though...

automatic GTE or GTC

There is this GTC on Car & Classic - according to VIN plate from the GTC Register, it should be an Auto:

Nothing to do with me, just bringing to attention :)

Petrol tank

Looks straightforward, or am I missing something. I think you've got everything you need to disconnect/remove and also the filler pipe cover on the parcel shelf, but it's a fair juggle to get the tank out of the boot :? Also remove the brackets that support the tank cover board in the boot (if fitt...

Steamy GTC

I can confirm the heated screens work well too, as it did in Shaun's SE5a returning from the Fradley Fryer on Friday evening :)

P.S. my GTC mists up a lot, but then I know the windscreen seal needs sorting as the footwell puddles attest to :roll:

Ians GTC rebuild. Now she runs, and stops.

Sadly it means the car will not be at Curborough this year. Sorry Guy. That's a shame, but better that it's running well than causing any further issue. Still there's next year... which should be a big birthday for the GTC :D It's touch and go whether mine will make Curbs too, as it may be needing ...

Also saw the ex Mark Hawkins GTC (but didn’t catch the owner).

Jim, what is this car?
I thought I was pretty knowledgeable on most cars, but this one has me stumped :?

Column multi switch and window switches

And the stalks are Vauxhall, but if the only problem is a broken clamp, it's easy enough to repair - my approach (in this link) was slightly different to Chris' :) Thanks Roger :D In preparing everything ready for MOT, I discovered wipers were not working again. Traced it to the column switch, whic...

Relay for rear fogs GTC

Thanks Roger.
On that basis, back to my original question - what rating should this relay be considering it has battery supply through the switch and the coil :?

Not sure why the ignition relay has 5 spades, there’s no reason shown on the wiring diagram?
Good point Jim. Walkers sent me a replacement which has 5 spades :?

Relay for rear fogs GTC

Two 21W lamps are 42W of course. I=W/E so 3.5A. I think any relay would handle that as would just a switch. That's why Reliant never fitted a relay. Melted terminals are due to high resistance connections caused by corrosion or poor connections. Andy, there is 2 further bulbs for the front fog ligh...

Relay for rear fogs GTC

The only original relay under the dash is the ignition relay, but that has 5 'spades', not 4. The mainbeam relay is 30amps, as are the two I've added as per Roger's wire diagram for relaying the headlamps. I think 30 amps should be fine for the auxiliary lights, but just asking for a second opinion :)

Relay for rear fogs GTC

Resurrecting an old thread... Please can someone tell me what rating this relay should be? I've finally got to the reason the fog lights are not working, by changing the relay with a spare. Why I'm asking about the rating, is because the one fitted is rated 40amps continuous, and it looks like it's ...
