Coming back after more than 20 years

Are you the ex Porsche test driver or am I getting mixed up - I thought you had a 1800TI. International in France this year - hopefully someone will send you the paperwork to attend. Things have moved on a little bit - you can now get a wiring drawing in colour from here. https://www.scimitarweb.co....

Flat spot at 2500 RPM

Does that happen with the amount of throttle applied - if you take it up slowly do you get the same effect. Sound more likely to be fuel ( jets or carb float level ) to me.

MOT changes

You can test the brake pad warning "lamp" quite easily - but if you do not have the pads fitted to operate it ( I don't ) then testing the lamp does nothing

SS1 Headlamps

Rather than go into the circuits step by step better that you see the step by step guide already done by Phil Wormald which should be available here - http://www.scimitarss1.co.uk/

ps wiring drawing in colour can be found here - https://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/~nenoggins/Wiring.htm

removing windows

I find it easier to push front bottom while lifting the rubber inside - as flat hat says they come out easily ( and go back in quite easily as well ) Be careful they don't fall on the ground and break - handy if you have someone to make sure they don't drop the first time to remove one.

Which colour looks best?

If you change the colour completely eg green to blue you will have to send you reg doc away to be modified. Our Coupe is gold - a horrible yellow gold originally but I am going to do it platinum gold which is more silver than gold but I don't have to have the reg doc amended.

reverse sensors

Fitted them to my GTC when I had it, the Coupe and the MB - the GTC fit was easy as they fitted between the lower inner corners of the rear lights and the bumper, with the Coupe fitted them in the reflectors. You may be able to get them in the same place as I did with the GTC

Ford's SS1

Not the time of year to be working on a car outdoors - although it did not bother me when I was young(er). It looks like its all there and just needs putting back together - keep the pictures coming.

Brake servo which one

I thought that it was illegal to remove a servo when one was fitted originally - I might have misheard the law though.

Brake servo which one

If you have the Girling part number or someone can remember what else uses the same servo ( I cannot for the moment ) you can pick the one you need from this list.
