    Change from 11ac to 18acr, is it a good idea?

    No, you can just leave it where it is, or unplug it and throw away;)

    Change from 11ac to 18acr, is it a good idea?

    Yes, easy enough to do. You need to find the 3AW warning light control unit (aluminium can looks exactly like a flasher unit) on a series 2 it is located behind the drivers glove box near the door. From memory you unplug it and join the brown/yellow to the brown/black (I think it's brown/black...

    Advice for buying a p6

    This car has spent a lot of time on ebay and had no interest, personally I think it is only fit to be a parts car and I would suggest walking away. As members here have rightly said, there are better examples around for the price. You would be better off spending a bit more on a car that has...

    LUCAS halogen headlamp conversion problem

    That's correct Tom, the inner and outer bowls are different. Inner are H1 main beam only, outers are H4 dip/main, hence the different spacing so as not to mix them up. The problem I have noticed with some, not all, aftermarket Chinese replacement light units is that they supply dip units with an...

    LUCAS halogen headlamp conversion problem

    Hi Tom, the problem with a lot of these new style replacement lamp units is that they are dip beam H4 lamps with a H1 bulb adapter for the main beam. Unfortunately, the spacing legs on the dip and main beams are in a slightly different position

    LUCAS halogen headlamp conversion problem

    Hi Colin, I wouldn't recommend cutting the tabs off the lamps, they will rotate over time and throw your beam pattern out. Just cut the bowl location slot out a little. I do it all the time, there is only the upper slot to do and it only needs cutting slightly to the left. The lamps will sit...

    My 3500S Restoration Project

    Annoying after you have come so far, but at least you have identified the problem and it is a relatively simple fix:) I wish you every success once all is back together, and I hope you will have trouble free motoring and enjoy the fruits of your labour

    LUCAS halogen headlamp conversion problem

    Hi Colin, is it just one 'tab' that doesn't line up or is it all 3? I used to have this problem when I did the 'double dip' conversions on the Jensens. Fitting H4 lamps into the inner bowls meant that the spacing on the top leg was incorrect, I just simply cut the bowl ledge a bit wider to allow...

    Rear Brake Calipers Removal

    I prefer the dining table, much more room. Mind you, the kitchen table is always closer to the sink I suppose, ideal if you have greasy parts and fairy liquid;)

    Odd temp gauge behavior - NADA V8

    New thermostat. And yes, the path from the intake manifold tower to the radiator inlet is clear. gbvona has already considered these Penguin, he hasn't mentioned checking the coolant level though;)

    1 1/2 Early V8's on ebay

    Fibreglass I think the seller means, personally I don't like them, never look right and certainly don't fit too well.

    And a very Happy New Year to you too Tony. I had a 1973 3500 auto when I was 18, I also had a 2000TC when I was 16. The P6 was mine and my Dads favorite cars, and we both aspired to own an S but neither of us could afford one. When I lost him, I decided I would get one, I just wish I had done it...
