GTC (E?) Spotted

Yard closed to-day (until ?).
If it's any use, Reg'n is DHU961W.
Thanks for the info gtce8. If I ever get into the yard, it could be useful.

GTC (E?) Spotted

Hope everybody is well and avoiding the beast.
A couple of days ago, I spotted a rather forlorn looking GTC (E?) in a local yard.
If anybody is interested, I can pop over on Monday and take some pictures for the forum.
Stay safe!

1800Ti - Checking Ignition System

Gentlemen, thanks for the info. Peter - I’ll check tomorrow. Will search Forum to get info on physically checking the distributor and its innards. Coupe Racing - what I meant was ‘the starter behaves as normal’. Cambelt fine. Mark (Keighley area?) Quote - Just go back to your original posting and am...

1800Ti - Checking Ignition System

Finally got an ignition tester onto my 1800Ti this morning. Connected it in-line with No.4 plug, switched on the ignition and tried to start the engine. Spun over rapidly, but no start and there was no flashing from the ignition tester (checked with another car - functions correctly). Next item to b...

Too Much Work

Thanks old bean. The problem was definitely the switch, sorry it was I/me. The fix (small electrical contact) I installed was a little too small. The new one works fine. I shouldn't have said that - it's chancing fate and pushing Murphy's Law. By the way, and just out of interest, nothing else - wha...

Gathering Info.

Thank you old bean.
Info safely recorded in my file.
My normal source of supply for anything car-wise is Halfords. Don't know where else to go, 'cept t"internet.
By the way, my handbook lists brake fluid as Dot 3.

Gathering Info.

Thanks Jim. I was questioning the handbook as the info for engine oil refers to API spec SE or SF. API declares these are obsolete and I wondered whether anything else was obsolete/superseded. The only other fluid I find questionable is the coolant. Trawling the web for SSM-97B-9103-A gave me a feel...

Forgot to add: what sizes are the drain plug washers?
Are there any recommended types/ manufacturers?
Thanks, again.

Gathering Info.

Getting ready for complete liquids change on my car - not been done in 10 years. The only info I have on oils & coolant is from the handbook which must be well out-of-date. I've searched the forum plus used Google but I'm no wiser. Can anybody direct me to the current list of recommended liquids for...

Too Much Work

Greetings, once again.
Seems, like the young lady on the bridge at midnight, I spoke too b.. soon.
Left indicator doesn't always work.
Heigh ho, it's back to work we go.
