jump starter

Hi I am sure someone here will know the answer to this. The new generation of small booster/starter packs all have a little box right in the middle of the red +ve lead. What on earth is this? My guess is that it might be some sort of diode pack but I really do not know and I would love to know. Than...

Scimitar GTE books

Hi Since I no longer have my Scimitar (wipe my tears away!), I have a few Scimitar related books for sale. I was going to list these on Ebay but I thought I would offer them for sale on this forum first as I would prefer them to go to real Scimitar fans. Frankly I was staggered by the “Buy it now” p...

Re: inline coolant filters

I fitted a Tefba in line coolant filter some years ago after a blocked heater matrix change out. The beauty of the Tefba is that you can clean it without dismantling things, they come in many sizes. I also fitted a filter on the inlet to the heater matrix as I really did not fancy doing that job aga...

Re: Fuel smell

Thanks for that Derek. I have to admit to a bit of worry there. I only use petrol for starting and then switch to LPG but even so there is still ethanol lying in the pipes.

Re: Fuel smell

Wow that is worrying. I replaced my plastic fuel line with copper more than 10 years ago now. So far without problem; gulp!! Surely work hardening would be more of a problem on brake lines though?

Re: 5a rev counter

Thanks Roger, I must confess to being rather pleased and smug. Especially when I was seriously considering send one of them off for repair at goodness knows what cost.

Re: 5a rev counter

Sorted!!!!!
After an internet search on the most common failure points on RVI rev counters I bought two 2,2 micro farad capacitors changed them out and now my counter from the car and my spare are working perfectly.
Result for a massive outlay of 22 pence!!

Re: 5a rev counter

I now have the rev counter open and ready for repairs, if I can figure out what is actually wrong with it. Is there any easy way of telling if the actual meter is still working i.e, can I apply a voltage anywhere to actually move the pointer if it is still ok. Everything else checks out apart from t...

Re: 5a rev counter

Surely someone out there has done the RVI to RVC conversion. As I said any info would help 100%.
