Resistance is useless?

I found this little chap sitting in the line from the voltage stabiliser behind the GTC dash. That red part is a coil of varnished wire which measures about 2 ohms. Question is, what would its purpose be? Taking it out to be photographed doesn't seem to have affected the instruments at all. IMG_1356...

Leaky CV

There is sometimes a very slight vibration I can see in the interior mirror, hadn't connected it with the prop.

I suppose there should be some sort of gaiter/boot over the joint also, to keep the grease in?

Thanks

Alex.

Leaky CV

There's something black and sticky coming from the CV joint in the GTC's prop shaft. Grease I guess, so: should it come out, how can I stop it, and will it be linked to the slight clonk when I reverse?

Stuck distributor

When I had this problem I got a crowbar under the wide part of the dist. body, resting on a nearby head bolt. Applied upward leverage and at the same time tapped gently on the other side of the dist.

SE6A centre exhaust hangers (O ring type)

In my penniless days I used to use slices of old radiator hose to hold the exhaust up. Didn't last any longer but free!

1982 GTC project gumtree

And we're back! I finally got up the courage to have a go at axle rebuilding and so far (20 gentle miles) it seems to have worked. You can read all the intimate details at http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=39745 So I think that this is the end of the 'project' stage and the begi...

Asking about axles

Just to conclude the axle is now back under the car and I've gone about 20 miles (gently) with it and it seems OK so far. Not even noisy in Scimitar terms. Thanks for all the help and suggestions!

Challenging choke

Gee I'm cleverer than I thought!

turning it a/c has helped but it's still not quite right. Time for the lid off and blow through some jets I think.

Challenging choke

Afternoon All I'm having trouble with the autochoke on the GTC. It doesn't seem to be closing the choke flaps far enough, so that the engine isn't getting a rich enough mixture. This means that the revs die away until the antistall kicks in, then go up again. Makes for tricky manouevering in the gar...
