The Golden Coupe

Hi Roy. That pipe looks fine, I think it's the angle of the bottom outlet on your radiator that is wrong. The top photo below is the one on my car. It's a Don Pither one and the clamp (not yet fitted) is separate so the pipe can settle in the correct orientation. The bottom photo is the view from th...

It's also worth considering whether it is still registered with the DVLA, especially if you want to retain the original number, as any car not taxed since the DVLA was computerised in 1983 might not be. You're on the cusp at 35 years but if you have a V5 (of any colour) rather than the...

Joe's 1972 GTE - MOT'd

The other alternative is the Borgwarner T5 (world class gearbox) As used in the Sierra cosworh 2wd. Sadly scene tax is payable and the tailshaft is quite long. As Scimitar has its engine so far back the gear lever is likely to end up being somewhere behind the drivers seat. Hi Joe, I have a BW T5 f...

:lol:
So true and applies to most forums.

I also find it a strange waste of effort when people reply to a posted question by just saying, "I don't know" ........ never happens on this forum, of course. :wink:

That's strange. I'll put the unzipped file in a Dropbox folder for you if you like so you can download it from there onto a USB stick.

If you want a small stand-alone program then try Recuva. Once again it's free.

Wanted bonnet telescopic stay

Hmm. The bonnet stay on my Coupe is much longer than that on the bootlid and has a manual release button. Both are original fitment. :?:

I'll grab a picture when I get a chance.

So sorry to hear (literally) of your compression issue. There seem to have been a spate of dropped valves recently.

Joe's 1972 GTE - MOT'd

Anyone else had trouble with the RSSOC supplied glass? I've no Idea what to do about replacing it. The only source seems to be the club Tiplex no longer seem to hold the patterns for any of the GTE glass. Even the front screen is NLA which came as a surprise. I have a properly fitted RSSOC heated f...
