Ti wiper problem

The wiper on my Ti has always been untrustworthy. It will sometimes work on first attempt, but will usually give up pretty quickly. When it has failed, I hear a short screechy beep and click from the delay unit when I try to switch it on. I therefore bypassed the delay unit but still nothing. Absolu...

Ti starting

Have you tried adjusting it? Two screws hold it in place: one above and another below. Once slackened a little, it can be rotated for adjustment. There should be continuity in the idle position, and continuity should break as soon as the throttle is opened. (That's how I set mine up anyway.)

Ti starting

It does sound like the crank angle sensor is doing its job. When mine went it would turn a full one or two revolutions before a random spark/click was heard. Found a similar issue being reported a few times on the Silvia forums. See here for an example. Seemingly a common issue (as one contributor s...

Ti starting

ive noticed what looked like an adjustment bolt on the back of the dizzy but couldn't find any tech-spec to tell me what to do with it ,so what is it and how do you use it?? Simply a case of slackening the bolt a little - it sits in a slot in the mounting plate so slackening will allow you a little...

Ti starting

The level of available adjustment should be enough to compensate for being a tooth out. Remember there's 2 adjusters - the one via the bolt on the block, and the second on the mounting plate behind. Dizzy's not 180 degrees out perhaps? And remember the rotor turns anti-clockwise. Plug leads definite...

What's the history with the car Dave? Was it running OK but suddenly developed this fault? Has anything else been done recently that might have brought this on?

Did you (or the auto electrician) test the crank angle sensor? Sounds very similar to my experience - car would sometimes (not very often) decide to start, and would appear to run fine. But after switching off it wouldn't want to start again. (Does yours consistently re-start when hot?)

Yellow 5 or 5A on You’ve Been Framed

Spotted tonight during a dash-cam clip. Look like fairly modern alloys. Anyone on here?

1974 Dealers list

Couple of dealer ads, also from the September 1974 issue of Fast Car. Interesting to see the reg numbers listed in the Crown Motors ad. Quick search found that 3 reg's no longer exist, while 2 were taxed up to 2004 and 2008 respectively, so may still exist somewhere. GTE-Dealer2.jpg GTE-Dealer1.jpg
