Wiper switches

Thanks all, for following up on this topic. Of course, nothing is standard on 660XYB!! To begin with, the wiper motor is mounted under the dash by the passengers knees!! If I get a chance I'll look at the motor terminals - this gives a clue as to whether it can self-park or run at more than one spee...

Wiper switches

Interesting.
What does the switch give you? Multi-speed? Self-parking?
Mine's a simple Lucas toggle switch, On/Off: wipers are single speed, non-self parking. Perhaps I should consider improving them?, but that might need a change of motor.

Sparkless

Instead of the wire going to the distributor (points or electronic ignition) disconnect it at the coil, and with a new bit of wire connected to the coil, then if you earth the wire and then "Un-earth" it you should get a decent spark from the king lead to earth (i.e. take the king lead out of the di...

What discs are these?

Had a quick look under the Porsche 911SC, they are vented disks, but the dust shields are in the way so I couldn't photograph them.
The book says they are 290.0 mm dia., 20.0 mm thick, can be machined down to 18.6 mm and the wear limit is 18.0 mm
Hope this helps.

Diff unit oil seal

When I did this a while back (under the car), after getting the nut off and pulling out the flange, I didn't find a way of extracting the old seal in one piece; is there an easy way? Bit late for me, but I'd like to know.... (I wanted to compare the old and new, just to be sure I had the right repla...

Porsche rears are the same size, are they ventilated?
Do you still want to know? If so I'll have a look tomorrow morning.

Gearstick gaiter/boot

Hi Jim,
My need is exactly as you describe - keep out the smell, etc.
The middle shiny ones seem like they'd do the job - I assume they are both the same: let me know what you'd like for one.
Cheers,
Philip

What discs are these?

The rear discs on the 911SC incorporate the drums for the handbrake - don't know if this is important. I could go and take some measurements if required.

Gearstick gaiter/boot

Thanks for clarifying things, Jim; I await your dimensions with interest!
Roger - my stick is practically vertical in neutral, and fairly concentric with the tunnel aperture, so provided the rubber boot is flexible I think it will be OK. Worth trying, anyway.

Gearstick gaiter/boot

Having seen a few pictures on the Forum of the cabin of the Small Sports Cars, I'm thinking that perhaps the rubber gaiter will fit the Sabre Six (remembering that it has the Moss gearbox, i.e. a bit non-standard). The aperture in the clamping ring on top of the tunnel is 90 mm and the height up the...

About the new black EFL90 FORD oil filter

It looks like you need to take the filter apart to really know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTNJLEV8CG8 Apart from FRAM I didn't recognise any of the brands, though. But then again, unless you can be sure that any two oil filters are the same, it's a bit like testing matches - this one lights......

Greenham Common meetings

Thought I'd pop over to Greenham Common this morning, an opportunity to see if the oil and water leaks are finally cured. A word of warning - don't get there too early; cafe opens at 9.30 so we thought it would be good to arrive before 10. Apparently every Saturday the populace of Newbury turn up fo...

fibreglass preparation

I agree with Jim, but as the "U" clips can't possibly go around the 3/4" thick floorboards (!) I'll resort to Chris's suggestion - using SS self-tappers into new holes. Thanks for all the contributions. BTW, here's a tip you might not already know of: When screwing self-tappers back into previously ...
