LED bulbs for dash panel instruments

The radio normally comes out with thin metal strips at either side which have probably been lost. I find that File clips like these do the job. https://www.officemonster.co.uk/StoreFront/evolution_product.html?Product=Q-Connect-2-Piece-Filing-Clip-Pack-of-50-KF26083&IdProduct=24014&fo_c=734&fo_k=984...

LED bulbs for dash panel instruments

You have to take the lamps off the switches first - the lamp holders are shaped "springs" which clip onto the top of the switches. My 6A had removable centre console side panels so I was able to get at them - with a solid centre panel with permanently side panels its a lot lot more difficult. Best o...

Bogging at 4000 rpm

Before you fit the new ECU I would check out the wiring around the base of K18 to see if it has been changed to take a standard relay. I have not checked the pin out of the original relay but it is possible that the fuel pump could get a supply with the wrong relay fitted.

Doors & Quarterlights...

Best I think to fit a poly sheet to the bottom of the window so it hangs down to the bottom of the door. Still waiting for SS frames to be available and for the GTE's.

Back to getting the ECu checked then - won't cost a fortune to post it then at least you will know one way or the other.

One last thought you have no fuel pump and no spark that suggests that K17 and K18 are not working - unless you have two wire faults. Have you checked that these relays energise - if not have they lost their earth's - given that the relays are mounted separately on the bulkhead.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

You have to think the ECU needs to be tested in one way or another - the company I suggested were very helpful and a new ECU was not that expensive. My car was even originally fitted with a manual one instead of a auto one - I did not even know there were two types until I talked to one of their eng...
