Re: Recovery

Not to bad as it happened at low speed and no traffic. Breakdowns always happen in the rain though !

Re: Recovery

That's a pity - was it the bracket on the axle that collapsed? :( There should be a couple of towing loops on the underside of the front plate of the chassis, though they may not be large enough for all attachments, or they might have been squashed by speedbump collisions! Also if you have a later ...

Recovery

I had the misfortune to need the services of a recovery truck this week. The rear suspension bracket had collapsed. The recovery guy had some difficulty attaching his winch cable to the front of the GTE 6a as there does not appear to be any lugs to attach the cable. The Scimitar was successfully loa...

Great photos Roger. What software did you use to overwrite the copyright message on the image, and was it Windows or Mac compatible please.

Re: Towing with a 6a

I thought an old 2 berth Sprite caravan from the 1970's would look appropriate plus these early caravans are not that heavy. I also like the Eriba range but they are quite pricey. If anyone discovers the kerb side weight of a 6a please drop a note. Wikipedia list it as 2,762 lb.

Towing with a 6a

Thinking ahead for next years hols I was contemplating towing a small caravan and was wondering what the maximum weight I could tow with my 6a. I have read that the caravan should not exceed 85% of the kerbside weight of the tow car. Is this correct and what is the kerbside with of my 6a please. Do ...

Re: Aftermarket electric cooling fans

Yes, no problem - actually it strikes me that I should mention that it's the third Thursday today, so it's Rusper noggin night normally a chance to meet Geoff, who's a proper electrical guru, unlike me who's an electrical numpty who thinks "Ohm's Law" was a '70s TV detective series! :lol: Regret un...

Re: Aftermarket electric cooling fans

Personally, I was unconvinced that leaving the fan running after the engine was off made any material difference, and like Keith, I was nervous about walking off leaving a high-drain appliance running, so the SS1, which was wired that way, I've now re-wired so the fan goes off with the ignition. I'...

Re: Improving airflow

Thanks for all the suggestions. As the rad was taken out earlier this week to fit a replacement steering rack I will ask the mechanic if he felt that the rad was serviceable before reinstalling it. Can I ask what is the correct setting for the electric fan please.
