TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly

Yes I'd agree with Jim, the rules of the game have changed since the early days of the forum, and it's now so easy to upload them direct, that (especially if you have them handily available) it's much easier that way and cuts out the middleman. :)

Binnacle fitment

I may be wrong, but by "instrument binnacle" I assumed you meant the one in front of the driver with speedo/tacho? As Richard says, there often is a gap at the top, especially if the crashpad has warped in hot sun. At the bottom it should line up with the square-section cross tube which supports the...

the other has wiring loom going through it
That'll be the L/H one with the wiring for the rear lights etc?. I think there's a multi bullet connector in there, which was outside and exposed to the weather on early cars, which caused problems until it was moved inside the box on later cars.

Yes, two storage compartments under the carpet in the rear are standard - they would have held the toolkit (or valuables that you wanted to hide?), but people have adapted them for other uses; mounting an electric petrol pump is one popular one.

Coolant pooling on top of inlet manifold

Whether the manifold is water-cooled or water-heated is a bit of a moot point - many inlet manifolds have water running through them (my cvh in the SS1 does for example) and it provides a "hot spot" to evaporate the fuel better. There are a few places the water can come from - the hoses going to the...

GTC Electrical Diagram

I presume this is one of the diagrams that Peter Freeman did, and which are available to download on here?. If so, I think Peter (a long-standing Club member) deserves a credit for the time and hard work that he put into creating them, for the benefit of all. :D

wipers

Roger The Rialto one had been fitted with new brushes and was less than half price of a well used 16W motor, plus I had a spare 14W brush set left over from a previous car. Richard, with hindsight, I suspect my last post was ambiguous. I realise the Rialto motor was your best choice in the circumst...

Se6/6a used a 14W with a 130 deg gear, so I would have thought it would work equally well?
