Cruise control

Been given a loan of a car with cruise control. My question is whether CC is likely to be more economocal on a long motorway drive than my Scimitar-trained right foot on the throttle?

Windscreen transport Wiltshire-North

Hello, bit of a long shot! I've been offered a windscreen by a gentleman on here (you know who you are, Drew!) but I'm having trouble arranging transport for it. It's a bit far for me to collect, and regular couriers won't touch windscreens, so I'm wondering if anyone is planning a trip between Trow...

Idling mixture

Due to a senior moment I started the GTC's engine without setting the autochoke. Does this mean that the idle mix is a bit rich? 2.8 Cologne engine with a Weber 38DGAS.
Or is it just the warm weather?

Steering not centering after new rack

This may be a red herring but when I was changing steering wheels on mine I didn't get the indicator cancelling ring quite lined up with the prongs on the shaft and that made the wheel noticeably hard to turn, so that I had to centre by hand if you see what I mean.

I replaced those with 6mm studding bent to a right angle so they didn't rotate then nuts from below.

TCR 5 or 5a

I just saw a programme on Frontrunner channel of classic touring car racing, with a red and gold 5 or 5a taking part. The driver's name was Alan Hurst or Hershey I think and he finished 11th or12th.

XJS electric mirrors wiring

I thought I'd just finish this thread off with pics of the finished job, I found that there's room between the door body and the door card to hold the wiring IMG_0808.JPG not my finest GRP work but it's hidden... and the switch where the joystick for the manual mirror would go -hole also enlarged a ...

1982 GTC project gumtree

I seem to be in a one step forward and two back loop at the moment, after finding the way to put the screen in I thought it would be easy to pop it out again to tidy up the front of the dashboard top. (Yes, I know..) It was easy, but I broke the screen putting it back again! Fitting the doors was go...

6a windscreen

Thank you sir. I'm near the home of golf in Fife, and I was hoping to find something within a day's drive of here. But I'll bear your offer in mind.

6a windscreen

I don't suppose anyone has a spare 6a or GTC screen they'd be prepared to part with? I can possibly arrange transport depending on location!
