Cheerio again!

Yes, the SE5 has gone to pastures new and I am Scimless again. This latest car was a bitter disappointment and has somewhat spoiled the memory of the SE5 I had in the early 70s. I couldn't sell it to a club member and get what I sold it for. So, good bye again and I think this will be forever. I am ...

Engine won't stop

GTE for Sale on Facebook

Engine won't stop

Ignition switch is the prime suspect but it depends what alternator setup it has - if you’ve got a glowing lamp then sounds like it’s running an ACR type (internal regulator).

Engine won't stop

Thanks Jim. I have just lifted the dash top and it's a mess in there! I missed the Morris Minor thread in my search but that has thrown up some useful tips. Time to get the meter out and follow the wires. Does the power feed from the ignition switch to the ignition go through the coil to an electron...

Engine won't stop

Had to jump start the SE5 this morning as the fuel seems to drain back into the tank with a mechanical fuel pump. Noticed the ignition light was glowing slightly before turning on the ignition. Started first time with the extra power in the battery and all was fine and showing a healthy charge on th...
