Installing relays in a 5a

Thanks for that Roger have just read the thread, very interesting. Having gone through the car I realized that someone had spent time and money on it at some stage and was glad to find the timing gear had already been done! Rebuilt the carb over the weekend as it is not running properly but think th...

5a Brake reservoir cap with float switch

Has anyone got a brake reservoir cap for a 1974 5a as mine is cracked, it's the one that has the fluid level switch in it, or where I can get one from.
Cheers

Installing relays in a 5a

Thanks for all the info it will be a great help, will crack on with that after I've overhauled the carb. The car has a rssoc sticker on the back so someone on here may have owned it. Its cream 1974 reg KTU886N.

Installing relays in a 5a

Evening all
I want to install a new fuse box in my recently purchased 5a as the original has some burn damage but also want to install relays for the lights and fan. Does any have any wiring diagrams to show how to fit the relays.
Many thanks
Tim

Service for my new 5a

Great thanks for all the help I have just got some steel gear off ebay for the princely sum of 50 quid. How do is set up the timing to install the new gears, I've got got an Autobooks manual but its doesn't really tell you how to set it up. Is the workshop manual I can buy on the site here better?

Service for my new 5a

As of today I am now the proud owner of my first GTE, a 1974 Se5a. It has been sat for a few years but does run, albeit a bit rough, so I need to service it, clean the carb and sort the timing out, are there any cheapish electronic ignition systems that are any good or should I just stick with origi...

Have you renewed the MOT as I would have to drive it back home and do you think it would make the trip back to Kent or woul...
