  1. Saggy That looks remarkably like a Dragon class. A very pretty boat. And I am now depressed... Paul

    Super, Steve - much appreciated. Thanks Paul

    Hi Steve Now that sounds like a solution rather than a bodge. You wouldn't happen to have a link, would you? Cheers Paul

    Dash lamps

    Chaps As part of the winter project dash refreshment, I'm replacing the old 789 lamps with LEDs. However, I see that the lamp holders' threading amounts to two pressed 'creases', one on either side. I also see that the edison screw on the (reputable-source) LEDs is fractionally shallower than the outgoing 789s and the ferocious spring loading is simply pushing the lamps past the holder thread. Are there any natty tricks for increasing the 'crease' grip on the lamp, without having to remove each and every holder? I've tried pinching the holder onto the lamp thread and have so far ruined one lamp holder and one led lamp. Thanks Paul

    Richard Side-by-side comparison with a 219019 casting. This one is skimmed and measured at just over 9:1 (the crease in the combustion chamber touches the face approx 2/3 across the water way - red line). Shape looks pretty similar, though. Paul

    Chaps A bit more advice, if you can. A previous owner had evidently fiddled with both of the big dials. It seems that the warning light lenses had broken away from their stubs, which are still buried in the rubber light hoods, and glued them messily to the dial face itself. The gluing has made quite a mess of the contact faces and I would like to replace them, but I cannot find a source. Any ideas where I might be able to buy all four (main beam, turn, ignition & oil pressure) in the right colours? I've sent an enquiry to Caerbont Automotive, but I think they sell complete instruments rather than parts, no? Cheers Paul

    Hi Bruce In a similar vein... Leonard Renkenberger's ancient 6-TECH document on 74tr6.com concludes with the advice not to pull the choke out immediately on a cold car, but to let the engine do a few turns on the starter and get the oil circulating before ignition. Much to be said for that. Cheers Paul

    True, Don, but the figures are small and I'm finding that dodgy eyesight (excellent long distance, but slow to re-focus on near objects) is a hindrance. That and a touch of pedantry, not easily assuaged by the gainsayer my post attracted. Cheers Paul
