window regulator

I've no idea how the 6 electric windows work, but my '81 911 SC has electric windows that have a scissors-sort of X system of lifters, and a motor gear/quadrant arrangement, I think.

Gauges removal.

SE5a running problem

NTDWM but apparently some of the new rotor arms are Chinese copies and the central rivet is too close to the metal spigot, the spark tracks across when damp (so I've been told).
