The latest points and leaderboard is attached, where you’ll see that Jes Firth in the TVR class pedalled the Griffith 500 hard (o...

pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

The jaguar XJ41 1980 Jaguar XJ41 & XJ42 Prototypes When the E-Type finally ceased production in 1975 it was replaced with the stylish, but large, XJS.

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

Driving back from the workshop at around 7pm I passed an immaculate blue Sunbeam tiger, a very brown 4th gen Toyota Crown (the one with the cool fins across the bonnet wrapping round to the side repeaters) and a red “well used” chrome bumpered MGB GT - there can’t have been a car show here on a Tues...

Now what have I done!

Sorry - totally missed the GTC mention (I thought you’d sold it?) edit - wrong Peter, that’s Peter S :oops:

Almost certainly ignition switch then, although I have had a loom fail (the one between the module and coil that has the eureka wire in it).

Nothing to do with coil - again, it wouldn’t fire at all if they were off. The coil power comes from two sources during starting, firstly via the starter solenoid (white/yellow to ballast, then white/yellow to the coil) during cranking - then direct from the ignition switch (white to ballast, white/...

The brown/red from the inhibit switch replaces the white/red on manual cars. The problem isn’t at the starter, it’s between the ignition switch and ballast resistor - or it wouldn’t fire at all.

Originally, a vehicle simply had to have a current MOT and tax to be eligible to lose its registration. More recently DVLA allowed numbers to be transferred from vehicles that had recently been placed on SORN. I’m not sure that DVLA have published the details surrounding transferring plates from MOT...

TR6 Steel wheels on a 6a

They look very similar to Scimitar steel wheel nuts? My TR6 steel nuts are 1/2” UNF, are you having to redrill the wheel?
