Ti wiper problem

Failing to stop sounds like an issue with the parking switch?

GTE Pedal Boxes

If you found a dual circuit master cylinder which fits in the original location/pedal box, there are dual circuit servos which look like 2 “normal” units back to back. Pipe one circuit to one half, and the other circuit to the second half. The one I’ve seen is this one: https://www.carbuildersolutio...

So what’s wrong with the original type servo? Even if you go dual circuit, you can get remote dual circuit servos..

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Saw (and heard) an electric Range Rover today - complete with swirly disguise vinyl wrap. Guessing it’s a hybrid, this far from base? Theres an RnD centre at Burford (or might be Barford - they’ve got a few), so not that far? Current development phase is underway of plug-in variants which should be...

Steering UJ wrongly phased Coupe

The issue is the bolt will only pass through with it in one orientation?

Been a while since I stared at the column UJs and splines but don't some parts have a groove all the way round and others just a slot (so fixing the rotary position)?

Ignition light staying on

It'll be the regulator or rectifier circuit at fault - sometimes replaceable depending on the unit currently fitted (I'm assuming it's the 17ACR).

Found this with a quick google which is pretty good: http://www.lotus-europa.com/manuals/mis ... /17acr.pdf

Brake servo

Officially, I believe so (brake servo missing or inoperative) unless the vehicle is modified for a specific purpose such as Motorsport - but they are looking for other supporting mods such as a roll cage, harness and seat changes to accompany it.

Being driven mad

When you say it stopped after 2 mins but you had spark, where did you have spark? At the coil or at least one spark plug?

This is Mikey logic - there may be a totally sensible reason why but then again this could be a sledgehammer and nut situation with a bit of bonkers thrown in for good measure. Remember this is the same guy who decides only a few days before Curborough to rip out his whole wiring loom and redesign i...

GTE Pedal Boxes

Chris (Dark Star) fitted an SS1 pedal box to his Coupe bit that was to get a cable clutch. You can fit a hydraulic master cylinder to that pedal box (albeit backwards) - Craig’s Sabre has it. I did a mock-up and it’s feasible if using one from a Transit Connect (cheapest I found as it was a mock-up)...
