For Sale - 1983 GTC Auto with LPG Conversion (Previously Owed by Bill Sims)

Nearer a dozen IIRC - this is possibly the only one with the build number too?

For Sale - 1983 GTC Auto with LPG Conversion (Previously Owed by Bill Sims)

Lots of GTCs with GTC numbers (and a few GTE with GTE plates too). I imagine prices rocketed when Bentley used the initials? Isn’t there a new Ferrari GTC4 too?

ATTEMPTED SCAM on my SST TODAY

This scam and variations have been around almost as long as PayPal. Offshore worker, consider it sold, paying extra to remove the listing, etc, etc, etc. https://www.theguardian.com/money/2011/oct/29/paypal-scam-fraud-email-refund-account https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/Access-and-security/Scam-...

Am I inhibited ?

Never heard of anyone fitting an alternative, although I don’t think I’ve ever heard of one failing either? Have you tried the club traders? I’m sure there will be plenty of s/h ones available if you put a wanted ad out.

SST & Sabre Records

Thanks Ben, 2198 was an incomplete car bought by GW. He presumably stripped it for spares as I was offered the chassis by a third party many years ago, but passed it onto Viv White who bought it. Not sure but I presume he took it to France with the rest of his cars when he moved.

Big End Shells bearings

Only you (and your budget) can decide where to stop - gaskets only or machining, crank bearings, piston rings, oil pump, oil pump drive, water pump, camshaft, camshaft bearings, clutch - £300 or £1300?

Low revs and you “might” get away with it - I’ve heard of bent valves at tickover cold.

AUTO BOX ?

If you’re 100% sure that it’s not overfull (which is what it sounds like to me), then the TC is at fault. I’m not sure if it can be repaired (because I’m not sure where the oil could be draining from) or if it needs replacement - but sealing the box to stop it leaking isn’t a proper cure IMHO.
