se6 chassis and build progress.

Not the ignition lamp though, the alternator needs to have sufficient current through it. An LED may well stop it charging.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

That is because the German colour code is sometimes opposite the Lucas one. Browns, plain or with tracers are "earthy", for example a brown/yellow is the speed sender signal, against earth. Blacks are primary ignition control, tracers denote services from it. Red is unswitched live power. Mix that w...

Bogging at 4000 rpm

black / blue signifies ignition controlled feed that is only live when the engine is running. I don't think I have come across a blue/black anywhere in the Ford loom.

Replacing rear brake cylinder

7/16" AF I think. Use a proper flare spanner though, not an open end type.

Absolutely agree with Jim and Peter. The SE5 is more suited to manual, as is the SS1. However a cruiser is better suited to a grown up's gearbox. ;-)

Bear in mind that TR7 do not have the illumination window, but you can swap the new innards into the old housings.

Updating ignition?

Just a small caveat... Magnecor leads are very nice, until there is a waranty claim. Their attitude is that the leads are either perfect or have been abused and do not like having to replace leads with loose connectors under warranty.

The Alternator isn't a permanent feed, it should only be live whilst the engine is running.

Swanage, Dorset. Anyone able to get a gearbox?

Just got an A4LD gearbox but just realised it is pickup only! As it is a bit of a trek from Gloucester, I wondered if there is anyone closer that wouldn't mind picking it up for me, either to collect later, or pass it on the network please?

Se6 Carpet question

Which company Terry? We were discussing Coverdale. Although you can order a GTC version from them, it is incorrect in many respects. They are uninterested in getting the issue resolved, preferring to tell all complainants that nobody else has trouble with them. If you press the matter, you get an em...

Fuel injection relay

The diode is fed from a black wire, which is "ignition live". It appears to be there to stop the live unswitched backfeeding to the ignition controlled circuits, but I haven't studied it much, so don't take my word for it. I have send Jim a PDF of the whole circuit but not sure if it went through as...

Ford C3 gearbox wanted Essex fit please.

Well the gearbox although better is not perfect, so it looks like a stuffed forward clutch pack. I think that the sensible thing to do is to fit a known perfect gearbox, so the intention is to remove this one with its torque converter and get them professionally rebuilt. It's expensive, but cheaper ...
