GTE AVO shocks

Full set. Front ones with springs. Bought these for a GTE I had but hadn't realised they needed smaller diameter springs than the standard ones. Got a set for the front and fitted the shocks but took them off shortly after until we could get rear springs. Sold the car and have had these in the garag...

Coil supply wire- now bought a meter!

Have to go and help a friend with a motorhome problem tomorrow night so will take the Reliant and get it good and hot and see what voltage it is getting to the coil then and that would prove or eliminate the switch . According to eBay a new one is only £12 odd. Thanks for your suggestions.

Coil supply wire

Will try that on Sunday. Out autotesting the K Series Midget tomorrow but may be something to do with the auxiliary rev counter fitted on top of the dash which isn't working although the standard one works fine. At least I now know what the problem is!

Coil supply wire

Been away all week but back now to trying to stop the hot starting problem. New leads, condenser, points and coil and still the same problem but tonight a solution but not a permanent one!

Coupe in eBay ad for a fire engine!

Interesting to see my friend Roberts rally car was up for sale a couple of years ago. We had some adventures, very hairy moments and accidents in it! He developed it into a quick car and I remember on the first big rally we did in it, the Galway International, chasing Geoff Crabtree's 911 down one l...

Iconic tourist pictures of a Coupe.

Well 150 mile run round some Circuit of Ireland stages today and, mainly, the car went well. Had hot starting issues which my memory is now telling me is why I put it onto electronic ignition, but when I brought it out of storage, it wouldn't start until I put it back onto points! Also misfire under...

Unsieze spring platforms

Thanks boys. Yes they do have a thin locking washer and have soaked them with WD40 but after going down to signing on tonight with the car, we have decided to leave it alone until after the event as not bottoming out and, having had three very late nights (early mornings!) this week, the prospect of...

Unsieze spring platforms

Swapped shocks round and that seems ok but need back up a bit. Had one shock off and couldn't get spring platform to move. They are Spax adjustables and would have well over an inch of threads available but despite taking spring off to wire brush threads and soaking in wd40, couldn't get them to mov...

Front shocks on rear

On the assumption a pictures tells a thousand words, below are the two shocks as they were fitted. IMG_8151.JPG The one on the left(10 coils) was on the front and the one on the right (12 coils) was on the back. The car was high at the back and low at the front. Found the piece of paper with the inf...

Front shocks on rear

Thanks
Main thing at the moment is to get the ride height roughly right and can work with the AVO’s and spring rates later. Are 10 coil springs rears and 12 coil ones fronts?

Front shocks on rear

After solving my boot problems fairly easily on Sunday with your help, time to move on to the next issue! The car had been fitted with the stronger GTE axle but as you know it's a bit wider so the car sits high at the back and low at the froPart of the bodywork mods I got done was subtle flaring of ...
