SE4 Coupe 4 Pots

I must question whether you actually need to update the brakes. The Coupe is quite a bit lighter than the 6b and I've always found the 3-pot brakes to be perfectly adequate and, more importantly, well balanced F-R. :wink:

Joe's 1972 GTE - Wiring loom Repair

To operate the new heated screens I have altered the existing heated rear window switch. Instead of a simple rocker that was either on / off the aim was to modify it to a momentary type doing: front /off / rear. This sounds horrifically complicated but is actually a fairly easy job! I started by so...

Igntion relay?

A complete wiring diagram for the SE6 can be found HERE . I can't see any markings on the top relay but, if you can find some, the following might help. The bottom relay pin-out can definitely be identified. What they're used for is difficult to say without seeing the wiring. :) Lucas relay pin-out....

Lockheed clutch master cylinder operation

I suspect the seals are gone. As you already have the cylinder off it's an easy job to clean it thoroughly, including all the bores and drillings, and fit new seals. Ideally use a honing tool on the main bore as this must be perfectly concentric without any longitudinal scoring. EDIT: Andy's post go...

SE5 (Granada engined)..slight oil leak & air filter anomaly!

On air filters, I bought a box of spares from an ex-owner some years ago which included an air filter which appeared to be right but in actuality, was just a bit too tall. I fitted a KN filter to the original filter housing on my Coupe and found I needed to remove the original rubber seals as other...

They hold the rack bushes and the diagonally slotted spacer allows you to apply slight pressure when tightening the bolts to prevent movement. Can't be sure what they're from but they look similar to Coupe/SE5 ones.

Speedo Drive Automatic Gearbox

I think James wants the drive-gear that fits in the gearbox rather than the cable. :wink:

Speedy Cables might still be able to help, though.

Insurance for multiple locations

It probably hinges on how you define "normally". I take it to mean "most of the time" so as long as the car is in one specific location for at least 183 days of the year then that is the normal location. It can be elsewhere for the other 182 days (OK, ignore leap years!). As long as the car is insur...

Absolutely not, he's too much of a perfectionist to do that. I suspect it's been bodged since, as Phil and Steve suggest.

I paid £12 each for the two I bought so you got a bargain.

If you don't need all three you might find customers forming a queue in your PM folder! :wink:
