Re: Zeus Brakes

I have read before that in Germany brake pipes must be steel and not made from copper or alloy. Is it possible the tester objected to the brake pipes to the Zeus calipers rather than the actual calipers? Hard to imagine a tester refusing to accepted calipers that Have pass the rolling road braking t...

Re: Electrical part Identity

You will see on the diagram fuses 1 and 2 are fed from the rocker switches for the lights. If your main beam flash is working as you say then i would suspect the dipper switch is faulty or if not then the rocker switches for the lights are faulty. The rocker switches are notoriously unreliable and r...

Re: Electrical part Identity

you ask about relays?? There are no relays on the main lights, unless your car has been modified. I had assumed you were using the wiring diagrams that are in the Series 2 handbook, or in the knowledge section of this forum? http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=700&sid=54315c33f9aaac4132500...

Re: Electrical part Identity

I very much doubt it could be. This is the 3aw relay that simply drives the ignition light only. Good luck with your investigations

Re: Left/right conversion help

Is it the indicator or ignition switch he struggles with to rotate or both? On my S1.5 it really was very easy, so perhaps a PO has done something that prevents the easy rotation swap as described in the guidance. As part of my LH to RH conversion, i rotated the the ignition switch and also rotated ...

Re: Series 1 insulation on floors

I too recommend dynamat for sound deadening then onto it add 1/2” dynaliner closed cell foam on floors under the carpet and use 1/4” on tunnel for comfort, heat insulation and more sound suppression, i did this on my S1.5 roadster, very pleased with the results. Used behind seats and in my boot too....

Re: Covering material on OTS hood canopy?

I got my reply from BAS, they advised the covering would normally match the interior of the soft top hood, so in my case i would need to cover the canopy with a finish similar to my Mohair hood material on its underside, in my case its beige inside face. BAS recommended a Dobby cloth in beige as it ...

1968 OTS series 1.5. What type of material and colour is supposed to be used to cover the hood front canopy and its wooden header rail? And should it have any foam between the metal/wood and the covering material. Any advice welcome. Mine is currently covered in what i think you would refer to as le...

Re: Low volts with fans on

My battery tested as good condition, we tested the alternator on the car and the test gizmo showed it was providing weak charge only. I ordered the aftermarket alternator from SNG for Β£98, which seems a bargain, and on arrival, appearance wise i think it looks good and a reasonable match to the Luca...
