Chassis for 6a

Yep, I’d say 50-150 depending on condition. Of course, it’s finding the person that needs one that’s the hard bit :D

SPAX or AVO or Gaz or Protech?

I have Spax on the 5a (expensive double adjustable for bump and rebound as well as spring height), Spax on 8 ball, Spax on the back of snotty with Avo’s on the front and protech all round on the sprint car.

Welcome to the forum :D

I think you’re referring to a car I saw on Facebook a few weeks ago? Seemed very cheap and was marked as sold within the hour.

Please don’t create duplicate threads, it causes confusion for all.

Ignition cut out

1/2” socket on 1/4” extension drive is much easier. Was the accusation identical to the one you removed? I think they changed the design after some complaints a while back? Stick a strobe on it to confirm.

pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

The jaguar XJ41 1980 Jaguar XJ41 & XJ42 Prototypes When the E-Type finally ceased production in 1975 it was replaced with the stylish, but large, XJS.

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Driving back from the workshop at around 7pm I passed an immaculate blue Sunbeam tiger, a very brown 4th gen Toyota Crown (the one with the cool fins across the bonnet wrapping round to the side repeaters) and a red “well used” chrome bumpered MGB GT - there can’t have been a car show here on a Tues...

Now what have I done!

Sorry - totally missed the GTC mention (I thought you’d sold it?) edit - wrong Peter, that’s Peter S :oops:

Nothing to do with coil - again, it wouldn’t fire at all if they were off. The coil power comes from two sources during starting, firstly via the starter solenoid (white/yellow to ballast, then white/yellow to the coil) during cranking - then direct from the ignition switch (white to ballast, white/...
