Re: Indicators & warning lights.

Have you tried disconnecting the reverse light again to see if that circuit is causing the problem or that something may have been knocked/nudged etc. when you connected it up.

Re: Chrome dashboard gauge surrounds/rings

a brushed aluminium look might suit the S2 better as the steering wheel and gear gator surround is a brushed effect.

Re: Chrome dashboard gauge surrounds/rings

Fashions, styles and tastes change over time. I'm sure I've seen some pictures of it done. At the end of the day, it is YOUR car. The majority of cars tend to get personalised in one way or another, even something minor like swapping bulbs for LEDs, electric aerial instead of a static one etc etc. A...

Re: Fuel tanks

The C.32888 is quite easy to identify as it has extra pipes on it for the vapour return. Could you add the car to your signature, it will make it easier to identify what is correct for you in future. There were a number of changes for the 1970 cars.

Re: Cork gaskets

The change in the breathing of the tank is only within the S2 model run, there were 3 different tanks, two vented via the cap and the third came in with the EX/EM engine air filter changes to allow for fuel vapour to be returned to the tank.

Blower motor spindle

I've just been doing some clean up work on the blower motor and replaced the brushes. Does anyone have any tips on getting the spindle back in the guide at the top? There is a 3 pronged guide to get spindle into. https://i.postimg.cc/yxTzR1P1/IMG-1576.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/NfgtcXs5/IMG-1577.jpg

It depends. Does it have any play in it? Otherwise just a cosmetic refurb should be fine.

Re: Tyres

Very happy with my Vredstein winter tyres. They've performed for me the last 3 winters. They are 205s though. No 185s were available except for small van/light commercial specifications which wouldn't be a good ride. In the UK if you fit winter tyres you must tell your insurance company because they...

Re: Flushing out coolant system

Quite a strong solution of kitchen / dishwasher descaler, run it up to temp, let it sit for a week before flushing with a high pressure hose. This may have a limited effect on passages that are completely blocked. The descaler can only nibble at the ends of the blockage, rather than softening it alo...

Re: Horn wiring & lighting relay mod questions

I was just talking about this very thing today. After 7 months in place under the sugar scoops, my high beam relay failed and I was about to add this to the upgrade thread. From this experience I certainly advocate the added benefit from being in a waterproof enclosure under the sugar scoops or inde...

I feel your pain and frustration Rory. If you don't get any further with the remediation it may be time to get some professional advice on how to proceed.

Re: Soft top weights

It can be fitted to an existing one. Aldridge in Wolverhampton can do this although they don't tend to fit them when they do new hood trimming unless it is specifically requested - basically because some people don't like the stitching that can be seen. David's suggestion of glueing the "S2 patch" i...
