Re: Converting an S2 dash board to S1

Where to get the correct glass fuses

Hi

I`m trying to find the correct lucas fuses for my car in various amps but I can only find the agc style fuses. If I understand correctly theese are not comparable both in size and blow rating.
Where can the correct ones be found, or any tips for finding the correct ones?

Re: Smith oil pressure gauge - how to reattach black plastic hose to fitting

Depending on what have been done to the engine I belive you could exceed 60lbs
So its not useless to have that extra 40lbs on the gauge

Re: Rear Light Assemblies

Bought a set for my fhc but had to reshape them to fit.
Also the chrome was not very good (not mirror like) so had to get them rechromed.
Would try to get your original ones fixed if I was you

Also its not easy to get back the vat paid when importing the items. If the goal is to increase the catalouge I would suggest pr...

Re: E type series 2 wiper motor running wrong way

Thank you. Yes the brushes are connected. I took the motor apart and cleaned it. So probably just had the lobes turned 180 degress. Will double check with regards to the wheelboxes since I have a new rack and if everythins is as it should for a lhd I can conclude that everything is wired correctly a...

Re: Speed limit Autobahn

Had a waterhose blow up when trying to speed with my audi s4. The water blew right onto the glowing turbo and it made a lot of smoke. Good thing the seat was leather, my trousers were brown afterwards

+1 for the bronze solution. Or you can buy a pair of undamaged arms, probably the best solution to get it 100% correct

Re: E type series 2 wiper motor running wrong way

I cannot find any other way to connect the wiper motor so maybe I have a rhd motor where the internals are reversed?

Will double check if it runs backwards when park is engaged and also the wheelboxes and links

Re: re-chroming of bumpers

Here in Norway as well. There is so many hse rules to follow that there is close to none left and the cost is enormous.
To do the window frames, quarter frames, rear window trim, rear lights and some minor pieces cost £4000
