Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Incidentally, there are 771 entries on the list. Allowing for duplicates, changes of reg number etc, that is about 75% of the cars built. As to how many still exist in the flesh ... I'll let someone else work it out :mrgreen: I notice a couple of problems on the abbreviated list, there are zeros whi...

KLN 122D probably chassis 0267

Dual circuit brakes

I have used silicone fluid in other cars without a problem, but the brakes on the Coupé don't like it. I had problems with the pistons sticking which could literally bring the car to a halt when the brakes warmed up :cry: (On a GTC when the brakes overheat the fluid boils, which has the opposite eff...

Dual circuit brakes

Thanks chaps.
I spent an hour or so this afternoon in and out of the pit bleeding the front brakes.
There does seem to be a bit of pedal now :?
Do I continue until the fronts feel decent or should I have a go at the rears ?

I'll need to buy another bucket of brake fluid.

Dual circuit brakes

Fluid out of both unions, still no pedal. It is many years since I bled brakes (last time I took the car to a garage, it's a job I hate) Stupid question, does it make any difference if I start the engine - and therefore the servo ? The months of imprisonment have made my brain even less efficient th...

That's interesting Jim, yes 0034 is a vacant number and would be much more reasonable.
I'll change it, with a question mark.

It would be great to find KGO, unseen since 1976 (and even then no photo) !

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

I've noticed an anomalie in the list, chassis 0134 appears with two different registration numbers and no explanation. It is KGO 328D according to Matt. It is a relatively late chassis number for a B registration, I wonder where the reference to BNP 456B came from ... No photos. Chassis 0133 is vaca...
