Few more bits sorted and the first proper drive last night, temps seemed to stay at or below 90 deg however the fan cuts in (for about 15 seconds) when driving slowly - normal? Was happy that the overdrive works, however the gearbox grumbles and the brake pedal is very hard. Feels like the servo isn...

Looking at that cam again, is it possible that it's just worn away? I was told by the previous/original owner that this car had covered around half a million miles and he used to drive up and down the country doing press photography so would have kept cameras in the boot. That's a LOT of tailgate ac...

I wonder if yours has been replaced at some point?.
I did wonder if it had been replaced. The latch operates without much effort so I doubt it will snap (for now anyway) :lol:

Is it a moto-lita steering wheel? Aye 8) Cracked on trying to sort the latch out, there are no spacers listed in the workshop manual so instead it made sense to re drill the actuator spindle and re position the cam. The hatch closes properly now, I just need to get a new tailgate seal. IMG_1557.jpg...

I offered up the hatch latch and found that the cam on the turn knob doesn't meet up with the striker on the latch. The lock was originally spaced with some very rotten wood which I had assumed was a bodge... but now wondering if it was mean't to be like that? Any suggestions please? :roll: Dashboar...

I had acquired 4 Cobra seats, some with rips and tears, and set about making a good pair. Here's the result 0F396ADF-9299-47E2-BFA6-C3558C0C3BB5.jpeg IMG_1383.jpg IMG_1389.jpg Turns out there were 2 different types and I've made the best job of it I could at a very minimal price. A huge improvement ...

The keen eyed may have noticed that the previous photo was a silicone hose set for a 6a not a 5a! Unfortunately wrong set sent by the supplier but they soon exchanged them for the correct ones. However... I found the heater hoses were a very sloppy fit on the heater matrix and inlet manifold stubs. ...

Just wondering where you got your stainless pipes and hoses from?
Silicone hose set was QRG, and the stainless pipes were s/h from another forum member a couple months ago.

I think I have 1 spare s/h lower stainless pipe if that helps you at all?
