Positive pressure in GTC fuel tank

Surely the roll-over vent will be normally be closed and normally opens only to let air in - drilling a hole in the cap is not the answer as if the tank is full it will/can let fuel out - especially if parked on a up-hill with the rear downhill.n I had my 6A for 27 years and it was always the same w...

Positive pressure in GTC fuel tank

Never heard of a tank being deformed or going ban with pressure - I assume it helps fuel going out of the tank to the carb.

Positive pressure in GTC fuel tank

The fuel pump will create pressure - that's what it does for a living Fred - plus the returned fuel will have expanded due to the engine heat - try the suck blow test on your cap.

Positive pressure in GTC fuel tank

The cap has a one way valve which allows air in but not out - try sucking and blowing the little hole in the cap for confirmation - My 6A and my GTC did the same "blow out" when I went for fuel - not noticed the same effect with the MB though but that has a different fuel system - Injection.

Original rear lights are a pain so keep what you have got they are better.

Igntion relay?

Sounds like the top right relay David posted pictures of - again you need to know what wire colours were connected to it to determine what it was used for even if you have to trace the wires back.

Igntion relay?

The wire colours are the easiest guide to what the items are - check colours against the wiring drawings.

I put a fan heater in the car in the winter to warm it up/defrost before venturing out - cheaper than running the engine for a while. Used Scimitars as my only mode of transport since 1983.

Alternator/Battery problems

Charge voltage sounds ok - to check if the alternator is draining the battery disconnect the alternator when putting the car away for a few days.

Coil supply wire- now bought a meter!

As it starts ok with a lead from he battery it sounds like it has ballast in circuit - perhaps the ignition circuit has been modified and it has a 9volt coil fitted as well - my Coupe has. You could run a wire from the battery +ve via a relay which is energised when the engine is cranking ( white/re...
