Re: Ballast Resistor

Hi Rob Gill here, you may find you end up replacing lots of parts to no avail , it may be worth considering replacing the complete system from barratts ,I had similar problems and this cured all my problems. Remember your trying to things which are 45 years old.
All the best Rob Gill.

Re: Thought and Contemplation

I brought my e type at 56 after always wanting one from my youth. Having had most of the popular cars of the seventies Tr6 triumph stag ,MGB, Jensen healey and a xj12 jaguar but I could not quite stretch to an e type.The closest I got to buying a e type was when I went to view one at steve Barratts ...
