Ians GTC rebuild. Now she runs, and stops.

Sadly it means the car will not be at Curborough this year. Sorry Guy. That's a shame, but better that it's running well than causing any further issue. Still there's next year... which should be a big birthday for the GTC :D It's touch and go whether mine will make Curbs too, as it may be needing ...

Also saw the ex Mark Hawkins GTC (but didn’t catch the owner).

South Cerney 2019

Jim, what is this car?
I thought I was pretty knowledgeable on most cars, but this one has me stumped :?

Column multi switch and window switches

And the stalks are Vauxhall, but if the only problem is a broken clamp, it's easy enough to repair - my approach (in this link) was slightly different to Chris' :) Thanks Roger :D In preparing everything ready for MOT, I discovered wipers were not working again. Traced it to the column switch, whic...

Relay for rear fogs GTC

Thanks Roger.
On that basis, back to my original question - what rating should this relay be considering it has battery supply through the switch and the coil :?

Not sure why the ignition relay has 5 spades, there’s no reason shown on the wiring diagram?
Good point Jim. Walkers sent me a replacement which has 5 spades :?

Relay for rear fogs GTC

Two 21W lamps are 42W of course. I=W/E so 3.5A. I think any relay would handle that as would just a switch. That's why Reliant never fitted a relay. Melted terminals are due to high resistance connections caused by corrosion or poor connections. Andy, there is 2 further bulbs for the front fog ligh...

Relay for rear fogs GTC

The only original relay under the dash is the ignition relay, but that has 5 'spades', not 4. The mainbeam relay is 30amps, as are the two I've added as per Roger's wire diagram for relaying the headlamps. I think 30 amps should be fine for the auxiliary lights, but just asking for a second opinion :)

Relay for rear fogs GTC

Resurrecting an old thread... Please can someone tell me what rating this relay should be? I've finally got to the reason the fog lights are not working, by changing the relay with a spare. Why I'm asking about the rating, is because the one fitted is rated 40amps continuous, and it looks like it's ...

wanted SE5a opening front quarterlight windows

The fixed ones were a Scimpart (Don Pither) kit, to get round the problem that the rubber seals were unavailable - and also that the levers were easy to seize and the hinge pivot also likes to break :( Now, thanks to the effort of a Scimitar owning engineer extraordinaire (Australian Coupe owner, Vi...

GTC at Brightwells

It is on the register, though I have filled in some gaps :) It appears to have been originally registered in Jersey, and more recently it's been in Ireland for a few years. I had an e-mail a few days ago from a club member advising it was entered for auction. A low mileage car too, according to the ...

GTC in Bristol Classic Show Auction 23 June

Peter, thanks for the VIN number. I'll update the register. It had Peter Misy's name against no.110, but no other details - which surprised me - but then again, there are members and long time owning non-members of Scimitars who haven't got in touch with the registrar's :D
Regards,
Guy

Parts question

Inlet manifold is NOT from a Scimitar. It won't fit a V6.
I'd suggest it's from the pinto, but I'm no expert on those old Ford's :)
