Electrickery-mystery gadget

Check what colours the wires are connected to it and look at the circuit diagram for them - is there not a part number on it

number plate lamps

I think they are the same as the 6's Jim but only seem to come with bA9 holders now whereas the originals had T10 bulbs and the BA9 LEDs are longer so they come into contact with the glass.

I always wanted a dolly sprint but glad I did not get one as the 1850HLs we had were more than prone to rust. Bought our first Scimitar in 83 and still got four various models.

wiring loom

Put the motor back on the engine today to see what is happening. The solenoid does pull the dog into the ring gear but it does not go fully in due to the damage of the ring teeth and it sticks when it is in so the solenoid does not pull it out of the ring and its not far enough in to make the motor ...

number plate lamps

One of my number plate lamps failed so I bought a new pair ( Triumph ) only to find they use a BA9 bulb whereas the originals were T10. The LEDs for BA9 lamps holders are long and therefore touch the glass anyone know where I can get the same style lamp holders that use T10 lamps.

GB out yesterday ( had to remove it to get the engine out ) and engine today - not tried a motor on it yet but it looks like the flywheel ring has lost its chamfer ( worn away ) and the front end of the teeth have flattened out somewhat - tomorrow morning hope to try a motor on the engine to confirm...

inner 5 3/4" headlamp replacement

The inner lamps are main beam only so you only need one connection for the supply and use the bulb body as the earth return. The lamp holder should have a place to connect the earth to. Did you buy two - my MOT man does not like there to be different brightness side to side of the car.

2 rail box front bering cover

Took the GB out of the Coupe today so I can get the engine out to find out why the starter does not engage the flywheel - however found the GB front bearing cover tube has broken away from the cover - nothing to do with the starter motor I think. Anyway does anyone have one lying around - I think I ...
