Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Pete, great photos, if a bit sad. Any idea what is the reddish car?
No info on the reddish car at all, I'm afraid.

SS1 main beam

I'm pretty sure my main beam behaviour isn't right, but I'd like confirmation. (I know headlamps been covered before, but I can't see a definitive answer to this question.) Lights behaviour seems to be OK - up to a point. Headlamp switch position 1 (off) - aux lights used for flash (as expected) Hea...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Nice seeing my old coupe on your page (JTS 842G). Last seen on ebay in May 2016. Also interesting to see RRE 212G. Not sure if I've shared these photos before, but they were taken in the early 2000's in Aberfeldy, Perthshire. A number of years later I tried calling a local business (whose sign was i...

Hello from the Midlands!

Welcome from another recent SS1 purchaser. Quite fancied that car myself, especially as (when Stoddy had it) it was fairly close to me. Enjoy, and keep us updated with progress.

A bit of French history

My Ti didn’t come with much in the way of history, but some came to light recently, by way of the following service slips, found down the recess below the heater motor. Seems the car was in Champagnole in eastern France, at least between 1994 and 1996. The documents also confirm that the odometer ha...

Ti starting woes

Cheers Alan, the car didn't leave the garage today, given the incessant rainfall. (Yet to find out how watertight it is - if it is!) As for alignment, the passenger door is not bad, but needs a good push to get fully closed. Something is stopping it closing cleanly, and I've yet to discover what. (O...

Ti starting woes

I was starting to think this day wouldn’t come. Finally got the Ti out for a blast. Brilliant! Still some jobs to do - straighten up the bonnet and doors - but at least (and at last) it is drivable. And just in time for winter! 😀 AC0BD0CB-2303-4919-853A-086F40292732.jpeg 90C7BEC6-4110-4868-B992-CC8B...

SS1 1800Ti Starts and Stalls approx 9 mins later.

Glad you got this solved JIm. When I read this thread, I thought the problem sounded remarkably like the problem I've been facing the last few months. In fact, I'd also started to think it was temperature related. My car would always just stall for no good reason, and it would fail to re-start. Fitt...

Ti starting woes

Hard to believe it's been so long since I added to this thread. Just been taking things easy the past month or 2. Anyway, I'm happy to say I think I can bring the thread to a close. After numerous red herrings and multiple blind alleys, it looks like it's solved. The culprit - the crank angle sensor...
