GTE Engine & Gearbox Removal

I've done it both ways and always found it easier to lift engine and gearbox together, I do have a big engine crane though. On a GTE you'll need the front of the car to be raised a bit to stop the bottom of the gearbox grounding out. If you've only got a small / standard size engine crane you may st...

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...

More on Electrics After the alternator sparks incident I pushed on with the wiring and after a bit of time connecting stuff up I was finally in a position to start testing: http://www.industrialbritain.co.uk/forumstuff/scim/1012a.jpg I've also renewed the towbar wiring connections. I've gone for 4....

No overdrive, so what would you do?

I'd buy it and if you don't get on with it I'd then fit a 5 speed type 9 conversion. As others have said the 4 speed manual does have a nice gearchange.

A 4 speed non overdrive car already has a cable clutch pedal box so theres one less thing to deal with.

Selling my dual fuel, A4LD automatic GTC. New MOT.

Andy, I've just flicked through you for sale thread, I'm not in the market for a GTC at the moment but with my imaginary buyers hat on I was left wondering if the way you've presented the changes / improvements you've made over the course of this thread might inadvertently put off potential buyers.....

SS1 Rear Skirt

Yes its my intention to take a moulding from Phil's spoiler. Once the tooling is made I will probably produce a small quantity for sale to offset the costs. Unfortunately the spoiler Phil has kindly lent to me has had a hard life, Including being bonded to a car and flow coated with multiple layers ...

SS1 Rear Skirt

I have one of these skirts on loan from mr reviver, It has unfortunately been cut in two to accommodate a large exhaust. Intention was to take a mould from it but this is probably lower down the priority list than moulding the rear spoiler which has taken over a year so far, (although progress has b...
