6B coil

Hi all.
Can anyone tell me the correct coil for a GTE 6b using the Duraspark ignition module.
The Cologne engine supplement just says 12 volt ballasted. My auto electrician would like
more detail to order the part. I'm in Australia & prefer not to import one if possible.
Thanks, Mark.

3 rail gearbox.

Hi Richard.
I had that page that Scimjim put up (thanks mate).
I'm wondering if the other bushes eg 32 & clips 36 etc. are available & helpful.
If you could keep me informed of your progress before I buy anything that would be great.
Anyone with other words of wisdom are of course welcome.

I have the SE6B/SE8B parts book & think I need, in section G3. See below. My O/D switch works fine should I just leave it alone? The gaiter item 6 will it fall...

Radiator options

I rebuilt mine mine using different header tanks & a very slightly wider & deeper 3 core. Fitted with the factory Otter switch but mounted higher in the header tank to activate the larger Spal thermo I could fit. The higher positioning of the Otter switch allows a lower water temperature in the radi...

You might have fun finding the sizes thou...

A SE5A manual wood have one to I assume. this locates the levers before you start, just did ...
