Oil pressure

The 2.8, 2.9 and early Essex run at around 50psi - the later Essex runs at a higher pressure. Your 2.8 is fine - relax

Rain today forecast on the west coast of the south island - but not cold so we grin and bear it.

Pedal box

I have a pedal box but I'm not sure if its for a 5 or 6 but as we are in NZ at the moment it will be a while before I can check - still if all else fails. Live in Newcastle by the way so not close to you.

Is a Coupe rear bumper the same as the SE5? - again!

The V6 bumper is shorter than the 5A bumper - I have both - the turned end of the V6 bumper is also not as deep as the 5A bumper. Don't know about the bumpers fitted to the 5's - I don't have one of them.

Engine lifting

Always used rope myself behined the crank pulley at the front and behind the sump at the rear. Never had a problem with any engine type - the rope "bites" against the metal so does not slip.

Hello! New member here

That's what we called a fusable resistor and is put in the circuit instead of a fuse. Not qutie sure why though - probably just cheaper. Not at home at the moment so I cannot measure the value you need but it will be a low resistance. The ECU switches the earth leg of the pump supply. If yours is in...

I hope it is the linkage as worn syncs is a gearbox out job - easier to do on some of our Triumphs, GT6 etc.

That is a very nice looking car - not that fond of the 2.8 engine myself - the 2.9 in our MB is much better. The T word is fine by me having had nine of them - only rust let them down hence our move to Scimitars - we have four. Currently in NZ staying with friends on holiday which is why I am mailin...

Insurance again!

We have been with AF for years but currently changing to Classic Line as AF seem to have lost interest in cars as they have other insurance to offer. Classic Line will insure cars not garaged which others will not do over a certain value.
