SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

Just had a thought - isn't the tall rubber the one for the rear wiper? That would also explain why you got an oval washer which I don't think applies to the front. So Matt may be right that he's sold lots..... I don't have a part number for the item, from the parts book it seems to come as part of t...

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

Send a photo to GW and see what they say!
I'm a bit worried by the subject as I need a pair for the GTC. Plenty on eBay but all for Minis and MGBs

Cruise control

Interesting stuff. I'll give it a try if I find a quiet bit of road, otherwise I might need it when right foot gets cramp from being too long in one position. I've been known to use the left foot on the throttle in the past!!

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.

SE5 Heater Matrix bolts

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.
