Re: Ignition wire order

Finally managed to get it right. It wouldn’t run as per the manual, I blew down no 1 and no6 which indicated no 1 was on the compression stroke, so tried 180 degrees out, still wouldn’t run. Finally used a dowel to get 1 &6 at tdc, verified no 1 was on compression and noted the position of the arm w...

Re: Ignition wire order

At the moment I have no1 at the bottom right (5 o clock position) followed by no 5 which aligns with the 3 o’clock cap securing clip.

Ignition wire order

Hi

Does someone have a helpful diagram of the order of the wires on the distributor cap for a 4.2 S1. I was being careful to replace like for like but have got confused and fear have them wrong. Do they follow the firing order counter clockwise?

I’m sure someone has done this before.

Thanks

S1 ignition wire conduit

Hi all Moss sell a nice champion ignition wire complete with conduit. They say “simply remove 2 cylinder head hold down nuts....” to install the conduit. Is this really simple, remove and retorque one at a time or must the whole head be retorqued and reset. I am cautious as I don’t want to creat a p...

Re: Gear stick detached

I figured that, parts 57-60 I would guess. Am I likely to be missing the parts labeled 49-53? Probably cheap to order them and see

Gear stick detached

Hi guys As I went into reverse my gear stick (shifter) came out- literally! Managed to get it back in. I assume the retention bolt/ nut is somehow missing? Took a look underneath but no access. Would likely need to remove gearbox? A big job. Can anyone share experience or point towards a similar thr...

Re: Loose, floppy brake pedal

Tried today to tighten the pinch bolt as it seemed loose, not too successfully as it turned out, very hard to access. Not sure this is the cause of the problem. I have attached a couple of videos, one indicates the movement is coming from the master cylinder, not a loose pedal on the shaft I can’t u...

Re: Loose, floppy brake pedal

Here’s a photo. I have also shown the attachment of the spring. You can also see where brake fluid has leaked from before my ownership. https://i.postimg.cc/Z5y0KK2S/384-E094-B-53-BF-46-D7-84-E5-BAF4-E1-D73605.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/436dV2X2/A297-B4-D3-3-A14-4-A1-D-9266-18545-CD0446-B.jpg

Loose, floppy brake pedal

Hello all. I just collected my dream car this weekend (since 4 years old) A 1965 series 1 OTC. Drove with my son from Geneva through the Alps back to Basel Switzerland. Wonderful! Anyway, my brake pedal is loose with a good 2-3 cm of free play before the brakes are applied. I don’t mean the brakes a...
