  1. Just to clarify, there are no certificates for the cars. But drivers get an award on successful completion of the event. or in the case of DNF, some drivers get a "Best Endevour" award.
  2. Is there any reason CT did not get an early bird discount to be used before the end of March?
  3. Is there a CT discount code for this event? I can't seem to find it. Duh! Just been directed to it, in the Members Section of the Forum!
  4. Looking at the engine bay photo it does have PAS. Nice looking car, but I think it was a 2000 MkII that has 2500TC parts installed, as the if the year is correct, it would have been a 2.5PI which has different trim details.
  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/202885190127 No personal involvement.
  6. I might be wrong, but I think the early Herald indicator is different to the others. My understanding is that that if the sidelights are on; when you indicate the sidelight flashes on or off. This is because both sides of the bulb get 12v, same as an ignition warning light. I believe the bulb has two poles on the base, but only one filament. Earthing through the bonnet and then the hinges is problematical. If either function is used on its own, then the bulb earths through the other bulbs. Anyone got a working 948 who can confirm?
  7. Thanks Wendy, that explains it. Its a double pole bulb! No earthing through the case.
  8. Does anyone have any pictures of an early Hearld Front indicator unit please? I think it works by one wire to the bulb coming from the sidelight feed and one wire coming from the indicator feed. I am just a bit confused how the bulb does not earth through the casing to the bonnet. Jessica has these on her Coupe, and wants them wired up 🙃
  9. If that is on idle, then great. You should see 45-50PSI at 2000RPM.
  10. I don't need the whole assembly, just the strut tube. However, I'm happy to take it all if it is still assembled.
  11. Anyone know what fluid to use? Used to be ATF-F, I was looking for the Carlube one pictured below. My local autofactors supplied a Dexron Type II - III fluid, is that ok?
  12. A But usually at the time of supply discuss; do you want it back, would you like a replacement would you like cash.
  13. "As he stared at her ample bosom, he daydreamed of the dual Stromberg carburetors in his vintage Triumph Spitfire, highly functional yet pleasingly formed, perched prominently on top of the intake manifold, aching for experienced hands, the small knurled caps of the oil dampeners begging to be inspected and adjusted as described in chapter seven of the shop manual." — Dan McKay, Fargo, ND Please keep replies to this clean, but this made me laugh!
  14. I can't find the photos, but Pete gave the gearbox the once over and we replaced the bellhousing with an aluminum single rail one from Moss. It is lighter to refit... 😅
