Align/adjust hinges of rear hatch/tailgate

Hinge bracket (11) has threaded holes for screws (15).I've seen washers on the rod before to take up lateral play.

Some poor pics of an exposed hinge here

Align/adjust hinges of rear hatch/tailgate

It’s identical to all other GTEs - 13 is fixed to the hatch but has slotted holes (screws 15) which allow the other half of the hinge (11) to be moved to butt up to the end of the transverse bar (which is glassed into the roof).

I’m afraid I don’t Anders - I saw this on Facebook. I’ve corrected the colour and added the redesigned C post info, thanks.

Not for a year or two - you need to correct them Peter, or it’s mis-described.

Parts question

I suspect it’s Pinto - or more correctly, whichever carb the Pinto had. Does it fit the carb attached to the manifold in the first pic? Looks like a 4 bolt attachment.

Overdrive for SE5a 1975

I think Steve does mean the complete box - we have a 6a box here that could yield an overdrive but would need a prop (or can you swap/modify the output shaft?)
