Top and Bottom Hoses

GTC 404 has run with Evans waterless fluid for approximately 6/7 years as well as a full set of silicone hoses and stainless pipes plus a Radtec uprated aluminium radiator etc. In the 3 years of my ownership I’ve checked regularly the fluid level and never needed to add a spoonful. As Andy mentioned...

GTC 404 Project continues...

It is down to losses in wiring and corroded connectors along the way. You have two choices, recalibrate the gauge in situ or run a direct (ignition relayed) feed back to the battery. Thanks Andy As a separate point I’ve recently trickle charged and reconditioned all of the batteries on my classic c...

I suspect you'll need either a parallel resistor or a normal bulb for the alternator or you might have charging issues... Hi Jim The point you make here has always puzzled me. Particularly as it was never questioned or queried by Martin. However, I’ve always found that compared to my other two GTC’...

SE6a Electric Windows

Thanks to everyone that offered advice. I’ll delve further into the cause when I have a little more time and some better light after I finish work. Viewing the pictures posted by Chris has just jarred my memory that I have numerous nos window switches in the garage (safely stored somewhere :lol:) - ...

SE6a Electric Windows

Are your window switches illuminated? If they are, the bulbs are in a kind of spring clip holder which sticks up above the switch, which will foul on the panel when you try to pull them out. In that case, you really need to get at the back of the switches, which might mean taking the console out? I...

Also try cleaning the switch out with a switch cleaning spray. This can be the difference between a slow raising window and a quick one. The drivers side window on GTC 404 has stopped working - fortunately in the raised position. Tried to take out both switches to swop them over to see if it’s just...

MOT Online History check

I’ve found it can be very useful for various cars on eBay. Particularly for MX5’S with corrosion issues. Unless the number plate has been blanked out for some unknown/known reason. :lol:

Grabbing a list together of "watch out areas" please gents

Fuel hoses - genuine Cohline or Gates. There's a lot of fake stuff (or downright dangerous non-branded hose) floating around eBay. AJL sells the best stuff around. Discovered this not saying when I discovered it. :oops: BC49A853-F292-411B-A983-8D8C30ACD371.jpeg D6A1B6DD-41CB-4CDF-B774-9D3DBAF3200A....

Plug gaps

Cheers old and slow. 77,000 miles. 300 miles last year :oops: 5000 since 2011. Now the iridium plugs are fitted I’ll give the car a good run and check one of the plugs (that is apart from number 1 what a pain). I could possibly pick out a colour match for many of the oil fouled plugs and many other ...
