  1. Update Huge Thx to David Ferry who very kindly was able to send me the front end of a wing that a local welder did a fine job of attaching. Now just need to do some fettling.
  2. As the rest of the wing is in good shape I like David's idea of cutting the front off an existing wing Dave I hope that I have sent you a message through the forum, although I have never one that before so hope you get it
  3. The current situation provides an opportunity to re-visit my 14 year old fibreglass & filler repair to the front of my o/s front wing. It held up really well & I had forgotten how bad the wing was - see photos. Now wanting to do a repair in metal rather than filler. Does anyone make a repair panel for this area & if not has anyone got any suggestions Many Thx in advance Paul
  4. Having got an alternator & thin belt conversion my ammeter is redundant. I would like to convert it into a clock keeping the Jaeger logo to match. Has anyone done this or got any suggestions? I'm happy to scan & print the logo on a black background but not sure where top find a mechanism. Thx
  5. I recently posted ( 3 weeks ago) how the ballast resistor on my Lumenition ignition had failed & I replaced the coil with a Lucas gold one and did away with the resistor All was fine until today, when she died. After a bit of diagnostics the lucas coil has failed (It wasn't that old). I'm now thinking that I may have too high an output form the alternator that has burnt out the ballast resistor and now a perfectly good coil. Any suggestions as to my next step please.
  6. Thx Steve That's what I was hoping to hear Paul
  7. Hi A very nice AA man got me on my way again today by diagnosing that the 1.5 ohm ballast resistor on my magnatronic ignition had failed. I had a spare lucas coil which we fitted, by passing the resistor and all seems fine. I was never a fan of the bloody great resistor anyway so am wondering if anyone has any views on running on the current setup.
  8. As Stuart suggested it was a stuck o/s calliper Managed to free it off but the question is why would it decide to stick halfway through a journey Hmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!
  9. I'm with Roger on his logic but can't think how changing the rear shoes would affect the front brakes I also agree with Stuart that a seized o/s calliper would explain the results but what would cause a calliper to seize that had been performing perfectly?
  10. Always had quite a lot of travel in the brake pedal so recently replaced the rear shoes. This seemed to make things much better Was out for a run in the sun yesterday when the brake pedal became very firm with very little travel and a huge pull to left when applied. With more pressure applied n/s front would lock up completely. Clearly something has affected the brake balance fairly majorly I was planning on taking the car to our agm tomorrow so only have tonight to sort it. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to where to start Thx Paul
  11. Hi Kevin Please can you tell me how to book Rgds Paul
  12. Hi Quite keen to attend the track day at castle coombe. Are there any places left and if so how do I book I've been to the tr register shop but can't find any mention of it Paul
  13. In case anyone experiences the same problems it was all due to end float. None between 2nd & 3rd bushes and loads on the 1st gear bush At least thats what I hope as haven't driven her yet

    gearbox again

    Problem found Quite obvious after the event I had managed to bend the end of the output shaft when hitting it with a hammer to remove the rear gbox case bearing Lesson learned

    gearbox again

    Hi Guys Thx for the responses I haven't rebuilt the O/D and it was fine before reassembly I guess off it comes again Anyone got any suggestions for keeping the 2 parts of the O/D that the Gbox output shaft slides into aligned as it was a real pig Thx Paul
