heater fan switch voltage

The heater blowers get their power from the Ignition relay via the first fuse in the fuse box 1 and 2 15amp. If the relay were faulty you would have a lot of other things not working - I would remove the fuse clean the ends and replace it - after checking it ok of course with a meter as a visual che...

From my saved tips - tap out to M12 1.5, insert a M10 1.5 helicoil - job done.

Refitting a 6a Gearbox

I made a U shaped cradle to fit under the GB and on top of the trolley jack - not perfect but stops the GB from spinning around.

Filthy fuel filter

Have a look at the filter in the carb - if it has one its in the middle of the two pipes.

hazards/flashers 1977 GTE

Nice of you to say such things - I used to do drawings as part of my job so when I gave up work it stopped me from getting bored for a while. I do like it when someone finds a mistook on the drawings - they are mistakes lurking around as I used the original drawings to make mine from.

Tip of the day ?

With four Scimitars I need to save every penny I can - for a Yorkshire man to call me a cheapskate takes some beating though.

Tip of the day ?

I have had my Coupe masked up for a long time ( long story ). Today I have been taking the tape off - and as usual had a lot of difficulty doing so especially around the front and rear screens. I had to resort to using cellulose thinners to get the tape remains off. Then I noticed that the thinners ...

se5a callipers

I have to ask why you want to replace them. They are much better than those on the 6's. On the MB I have fitted Wilwoods which are far better than the Lockheeds but never had a problem with our 5A brakes ( when we had it ) and still run the original Girlings on our Coupe.

Driving position

Perhaps the PO had moved it because he did not like the peddles being offset to start with - as they are.

Well it does stand out from the crowd - I like the seats - I wonder what they came from.I do find the mileage hard to believe.

wanted se6a standard soft boring suspension

I doubt if the original shocks are available but you can always adjust "modern" ones for a soft ride - as for the springs uprated ones are the way to go - the originals will not last for more than a couple of years at best.
