Error code 21 and power transistor

Transistors tend to either work or not work - knowing that you have had rough running for a while \i would be surprised if is duff. The pcb in the dizzy however is not so reliable - I have had one fail and so has Mark Wilson - do you know anyone who can lend you one to try.

A few questions about SE5

Also as advised change the rubber fuel pipes with at least R9 ones as ethanol will destroy them eventually ,it does the carb no good either - use super ron 97 minimum fuel or better i...

Coupe engine queries

The early engine runs at 50 against the later engine which runs closer to 75 ( in my experience ) the early engine oil pump is larger than the later one - pic below and the early engine has different tappets.

Earthing Rear Lights
