The case of Old Number ... er ... two ??

Sounds to me as though they just need a sensible judge to bang heads together! Wonder what gearbox is actually in the car now ? I'd guess it's either an original one out of another GTO, or a (partial or full replica of a GTO one, or perhaps one from another related model (the GTO was after all an ev...

Over heating se5a ?

The Yellow peril had had the same thing happen before my ownership, and there was a little piece missing at the front, which had been replaced with some kind of "chemical metal" stuff. It had also had the bolts changed for studs and nuts, which means you're not screwing the thread in and out each ti...

How do I get an electronic speedo to work on my 5a.

But someone has told me they can be an MOT fail? :? :? Not sure why as they are permissible in IVA builds. As far as I can see, the MOT Testers Manual doesn't say anything about method of operation, only that they must work. I suppose if the car was tested statically, it might be possible that an u...

Silverstone Classic 31-Jul - 2-Aug 2020

Interesting question. Firstly, Club discount codes are published in Slice and on the "Special Deals" page on here (accessed from the homepage, and only available to logged-in RSSOC members - which would include you, of course :) ). Nothing has appeared there as yet, as far as I can see (though I've ...

Couple of engine questions....

The two adaptors, of which David posted a photo in his earlier post, both appear to have the same thread on the block side (to my eyes anyway) whereas the pipe side is different? Probably unwise to be too emphatic about the outer thread on what is only a screw-in adaptor after all?

Ignition Query

If it was an Essex I'd agree, I'm not sure of the normal pipe routing around the cologne engine?

The parts list just describes it as "Shield, coil and distributor" so take your pick! :lol:

Ignition Query

The “the tank to nylon pieces.” are the rubber pieces of pipe which join the stubs on the petrol tank to the nylon pipes along the chassis (which you seem to say are new?). I'd be surprised if there's anything wrong with the nylon pipe other than a superficial coating of dirt. If you insist on repla...

Th photos are now directly posted, so I've chopped-out the middleman. :) My new pipe as in the second photo, came from Graham Walker, one of the Scimitar specialists mentioned earlier. (though IIRC yours isn't a Scimitar installation, so you might need a different length?). And then there's the ques...

The earlier photo is one of mine, uploaded before photobucket decided to adopt a self-destructive business model, and vandalised users images. I've now replaced the images on the original thread , and I've also quoted my post below for completeness: Well, I've come up with a couple of photos which m...

I would not glue it,then what do you do when you have to remove it next time? maybe a clip made for exhaust systems (not the U-bolt type tho.)
Presumably you're thinking of the Mikalor type clips?

Over heating se5a ?

Before you get too excited about it, it might be worth confirming what temp. it actually is - if you can get hold of an infra-red thermometer and take the temp. at a few places (by the gauge sender, around the thermostat housing, top hose, etc) to see if the gauge itself is really telling the truth?
