New member in South Wales

Welcome mate!

There's a couple of us in South Wales. We're a rare breed. Myself and the gentlemanly Terry H above are from the Newport area.

If I can help at all, let me know :)

Sounds like the Battery Control fuse is the common factor?

Try another fuse - they aren’t all created equal, unfortunately.
Battery control fuse; gotcha'!

Everything else on the car works very well. Just the above has stopped working :) typically prior to the build up to MOT :lol:

Hello chaps and lady chaps! Hope you're all well. Just a quick and very daft query as it got too dark outside.. Flora'a fuses have always been fine, so never bothered touching them. Tonight I noticed after some reading that some of her fuses are the wrong ampage. The whole fuse box was a bit groggy,...

SE5 front wheel bearings

I found exact Timken replacements after having a lot of trouble with some others I had purchased. A bit of digging and you can find the part numbers on eBay :)

We've seem some absolutely horrendous attempts by other businesses. Many bring us their "retrimmed" parts for us to strip completely and do correctly. My favourite restoration recently was a MK1.

Hi Will :) hope you're well. I got them off eBay for £40 a pair. I'm sure you can get them cheaper, but with so much to trawl through on eBay I just picked the most appealing ones :)

Thanks Mike! How's your car doing? Yes indeed, still a great deal of buttery goodness going on. I was gutted not to be at Curborough this year; quite glad though as it later developed that a wheel bearing was about to be very mischievous! Suspension rebuild has been a lot of fun, and a fantastic bit...

Morning all! I've been away from here for a good while, but working on Flora has always remained a constant. Had lots of career developments keeping me far too busy! I'm currently rebuilding the front suspension; had some interesting developments from 45 year old untouched components, but all going ...
