GTC Vert Soleil

Springs are as I found them (and same both sides) I wondered what the extended bit was for :roll:
I'll correct them tomorrow, though they seem to work ok as is.

Thanks Roger, didn't realise the square/rectangular rod was conical.

No ignition light

I think you're right there Roger, feed for the ignition light comes from the ignition switch and the alternator.
But I'm pretty sure I am right about the gauges, so why have they failed at the same time ...
Oh yes, it's a Reliant :lol:

Yes, delivery was fine. The job is now looking better, I have new rear brakes but the handbrake still isn't sorted. Seems you need to jack up both sides at once to do it :cry: Anyway the new shoes are on, all tidied up and the other drum put back. Checking the adjuster this time it only seems to hav...

Se5A dual circuit brake

I did front/rear because I am lazy and used most of the old pipework and unions.
If you end up with only rear brakes you better not be doing emergency stops though 8)

No ignition light

No gauges?
Speedo at least is mechanical so presumably that works?
I think oil pressure gauge is also, but I may be wrong as usual.
Of the gauges that are electrical, and the ignition light, the only thing they have in common is the earth connection :wink:

SouthoFrance Scimitar Sortie 2018

L'Hotel Madaleno près de Fontvieille propose une ambiance rustique et confortable dans un cadre de verdure à quelques kilomètres de la ville. Quelques Scimitaristes ont meme risqués la piscine ... Arrivés de bonne heure, nous nous sommes ressaisis pour se retrouver en terrasse à l'heure de l'apéro. ...

:?: :?: :?: indeed !
I could possibly be in the Chronopost database ?
It seems they have a serious security problem, must remember never to pay them with a bank card.

I wondered what the square shaft was for (but only noticed it when it was too late).
The second side should be easy :oops:

Shoe adjusters? Is that the square shaft sticking out of the back? It's so long since I touched a brake drum I've forgotten. I did think to slacken off the cable - but couldn't. Delivery was 11h50 french time, they advised 11h30 - 12h30 so spot on. The foreign gentleman obviously had my phone number...

Brake shoes arrived this morning, thanks Mark. I got one side fitted, with the usual inconveniences - I jacked the car up, took off the wheel, then remembered my arc light was in the pit ... under the car. So I went and pinched my son's from his workshop store. I cleaned and painted the brake, forgo...

SouthoFrance Scimitar Sortie 2018

Episode 2 Gourgonnier En suite on reprend la route et, quelle surprise, on tombe sur le vignoble du Mas de Gourgonnier. Niché dans un terrain d'oliviers (et évidemment de vignes) ce petit domaine produit des excellents vins de l'appellation Baux de Provence. Il y des personnes qui en achètent :wink:...

Episode 1 and a half ORGON Interesting visitors at the Museum included six Scimitars, most models represented except SE5/a, and with two GTC's, that's about half the GTC population of France. Coupé Audrey & James Mason, SE6a Francis Martin, GTC's of Ros & Phil Mason and Chris Johnson, SS1800ti Giuli...
