Se6 brake booster

More details as to why you think the servo (brake booster) is faulty may help........is hose to servo in good condition and not blocked/ cracked open? etc.
You may just need a repair kit. A word with Nigel at QRG may be productive. Mark Wilson Yorkshire may have a spare?

GTC COLOGNE TEMPERATURE LESSON LEARNED

Hi all just thought I would share todays lesson. On way home at moderate speed up to 65 mph I saw the temp on the gauge start to fall from its normally steady 90 degrees. Otherwise all else seemed well. Investigation at home: Water level in overflow expansion tank ok. and all hoses feel at usual hea...

“Best” inductive heat gun, impact driver

Note that the SGS air gun in the kit has 4 adjustable power settings. (remember wolfrace nuts should be tightened to 50 ftlbs)

“Best” inductive heat gun, impact driver

An Austin 7 club member of high standing and well respected for his ability and knowledge looked into induction heat tools and eventually bought a 'mini ductor'. He recommended it after trying it out on nuts and studs. I bought a MINI DUCTOR II+ MD800P INDUCTION TOOL with mixed coil kit, heat pad an...

Lockheed brake master diagram

The middle switch can either be a hollow that the pin drops into or a ramped lump that lifts the pin
I got the different one when I last changed master cylinders......vague memory that some changing od switch/wiring was required?

How many turns...

Or even 2 layers of builders damp proof plastic sheet + slight dampness of water between sheets. As Jim says first centralise the rack and take that as the non negotiable starting point (is there not a bolt you can take out to put a pin in to a hole on the rack when in centre position?? on some rack...

My SE6a Over Heating Cure

Just in case anyone did not understand the reference to aircraft engineers having nothing to do with motor cars......Bristol built some very good vehicles as well as their fine aircraft.....also the other manufacturers mentioned.

My SE6a Over Heating Cure

Just a reminder to all....The GTC cologne engine thermostat has two valves. When below opening temperature the main through-the -radiator valve is shut but the extra disc at the bottom .....the second valve ....allows water from the pump to flow in the by-pass hose to the engine so that water is onl...

Radio relay and electric aerial.

That's interesting as it appears you have the limit switches outside the aerial and use a DPDT relay to reverse the motor. I presume all that is actually contained within the aerial housing? Unusual if it is as most aerials have an earth and two feeds, one up and one down. :? Conversion to the stan...

1982 GTC project gumtree

ard126k.....if your crown and pinion are intact and not toothless would it perhaps be better to rebuild with new bearings? Any unknown replacement axle may have suffered at previous owners hands. Aparent overtightening may actually be due to an application of Locktite to threads and shaft/flange. An...
