Yellow 5 or 5A on You’ve Been Framed

Spotted tonight during a dash-cam clip. Look like fairly modern alloys. Anyone on here?

1974 Dealers list

Couple of dealer ads, also from the September 1974 issue of Fast Car. Interesting to see the reg numbers listed in the Crown Motors ad. Quick search found that 3 reg's no longer exist, while 2 were taxed up to 2004 and 2008 respectively, so may still exist somewhere. GTE-Dealer2.jpg GTE-Dealer1.jpg

1974 Dealers list

Brilliant Darren! Hard to believe they're over 46 years old. Interesting garage name as well. :)

Error code 21 and power transistor

The pulley cover on mine can be put on multiple wrong ways, but I’m not sure if it’s the same with yours. (I’ve got the v shaped belt while you’ve got the flat version.) For a bit of piece of mind, you can remove the dizzy cap and check the rotor arm is pointing towards lead 1 (i.e. at about 10 past...

And while you’re dabbing paint on the correct mark, dab a spot on the point of that pointer. Makes it easier to see both when testing with a strobe.

This is the one were you remove the distributor and turn it hearing the injectors click etc?
Yes, that's the one. There's another way of testing it (with multimeter). Both methods are mentioned in this thread.

Error code 21 and power transistor

dizzy or AFM first? If you've checked and cleaned the AFM, I'd be tempted to leave that for now. Just ensure the connection is firmly in place. If it sounds like it's running on 3 cylinders, could it be a blocked injector? I'd do a quick dizzy test. (I'm sure i've linked to it elsewhere.) It isn't ...

Likewise. Crank angle sensor in the dizzy failed on me with similar results. Some approaches to testing it are documented in this thread.

Although, I am favouring the cheating way of cutting the old one down the middle Downside of this approach is, if the existing belt is incorrectly fitted, the new one will be too. (There is a thread in which the bad running was due to an incorrectly fitted belt - a notch or so out.) Similarly the p...

Finding/seeing the pulley timing marks (so you can dab paint on) can be a job in itself with everything in situ. You'll definitely need a torch. Not sure what other peoples approach is, and I'm not sure if it's recommended, but I put the car in gear, handbrake off, got a piece of rope on the tow hoo...
