Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Jim, that's impressive research, do DVLA really go back to 1977 ? DVLA records go back to whenever the first cars were registered - if they were around when the system went computerised in the 70s, or have been registered since. For example, here’s a 1933 Talbot we saw in Malta this year 94F48D37-9...

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

I saw (black/silver plates) 401 on a Freelander this morning - obviously not a UK registration.

I also thought I saw RR11DHC on a what I think was a new RR Dawn DHC - but it doesn’t appear on DVLA so I must have misread it?

GTC corner weights

It won’t be exact but not far off. Here’s my SS1 corner weights - although the whole car was lightened, it was fairly symmetrical apart from the gel battery in the passenger footwell.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

When I was a registrar, I used to look at the 5 numbers either side of every registration I received, just in case the dealer had block booked them with DVLA. I’ve done the same with the list Chris provided previously and have the following - I haven’t checked to see if they’re already on the regist...

Ford's SS1

Or fit a catch tank?

Is there a circlip on the back of the ignition barrel that allows you to pull out the innards and swap over (if that’s all that’s wrong with yours)? Edit - ignore that, just read through war and peace to see that it was smashed :D

I wonder if FDV 655C should read FDU 655C too?
I did have that thought too, so checked both :D

DU was Coventry, DV was Exeter.

Is that for the crack it is possible to repair that?
yes, cut it open, remove rust, replace with new metal if you wish (some have filled it with GRP) and glue body back on - simples :D

have you just replaced the seals recently? plenty of room for improvement on the alignment - but it takes ages!

bad news on the cracks - that's the steelwork corroding and expanding behind the GRP.

20psi coolant pressure?

The first question is - why? Do you have a problem with localised boiling? 50/50 antifreeze boils at 106 (ish) deg and pressurising it to 14psi brings it up to 125 deg - the average temp in the block is 90 deg, so what's the max local temps? Overall, if it was designed at 14psi, I'd be reluctant to ...
