Jag mirror mounts

I have a pair of Jag mirrors for my MB - and will fit the "normal" mirrors to our Coupe when they have been re-cond. However the door mounts that came with the mirrors are flat and I need something more like the normal mounts to square the mirror on the door. On Ebay there are mirrors for sale from ...

TR6 Steel wheels on a 6a

A search on the site seems to confirm they fit without problem - don't know what size tyres you can use with them though

Starter solenoid

The push on is from the ignition switch to energise the solenoid and the screw terminal is the connection which gives 12v to the ballast resistor/coil +ve ( effectively shorting the resistor out ). You can of course connect a relay across the ignition switch which energises when the starter is energ...

Advice for a respray SE5a

Did my Coupe with water based paint and found it very forgiving and much easier to apply than cellulose or twin pack - you still need to put lacquer on top though and I have used Max Meyer which I also find to be relatively easy to use. My previous attempts with twin pack and cellulose were shall we...

Off side SS1 door morror

It might be easier to get at the screws if you can get the mirror off - plenty of sticky stuff remover might help but of course you risk breaking the mirror.

Vented Brake Discs & Stub Axle Bearings

The inners of the bearing can be removed and a bit of the inner metal where he two halves come together can be ground off and then the bearings can be fitted as "normal" bearings - done it.

PAS tie rod/steering arm removal ?

Nothing to stop you filing a couple of flats on the rod then you can put a spanner on it ( adjustable ) or a pair of mole grips - you can then apply more pressure on the nut. The rod has a big enough diameter to allow for a couple of flats.

POWER STEERING

Can they not put you on to another supplier mark ? - they should know who were their competitors and someone must be able to make money out of it - there are a lot of classics out there.

POWER STEERING

The hunt will now be on to find something else that fits or can be made to fit - not going to worry me for a while as Mark re-conditioned my spare rack some time ago.

GTC mirror adjustment

I no longer own a GTC but I also had the same mirrors as you have - they were adjusted by intermittent use of the toggle - a click at a time. The white/brown wire sounds like it is for heated mirrors. You can work out what connects to where on the toggle switch by using a PP3 battery instead of risk...
