6a turns over, fires up and stops when key is let go

This doesn’t use that type of tacho, Philip. It is a little confusing as separate tests have given 12v both sides of the ballast resistor and only one side. Could be one of those ballast failures where it’s just touching (the wire itself) but as soon as there’s any current draw or vibration it goes ...

My Purple Project - SE5a 1973

2134 is superseded by 2192; 2192 is OK up to E10, 2240 is OK for 100% Ethanol by the looks of it, as well as having a higher pressure rating.

Replacing girling servo with lockheed

I think I picked up one of the studs on the back of the servo (just visible) but can’t remember where I bolted it to :lol: might have been a hinge bolt but they aren’t in the same place anyway as this was a 5a.

Replacing girling servo with lockheed

Not sure why I keep doing this to myself....

Out of all the bubble 200's, the BRM (and possibly the Vi) are probably going to be investing in. Sort of how there are the Vitesses and "all the other SD1s"..

Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

I couldn't find a supplier for skyhooks either and "wireless" coolant doesn't work too well :lol: Great fun when you're dangling things in free air with one hand, trying to guess what selection of hoses and bracketry you need.
