    Thanks, guys, just wondering if there was something obvious to check, hadn’t started car in a few weeks. Am I right in thinking it just uses ATF, any one in particular?

    Warning light

    Thanks, Harvey & Tom, I’ll have a look at your suggestions tomorrow, weather permitting. Oil pressure light works ok, the choke warning light was removed a couple of years ago during the “sorting it out” period. Mick

    Warning light

    Hi, all, just moved the car out of the garage and noticed the warning light on the dashboard wasn’t lit. Hand brake was on (honest!:p) and there is plenty of fluid in the reservoir, any suggestions? Mick

    My 3500S Restoration Project

    Apologies, I don’t wish to hijack the thread but how easy/difficult is changing the shock absorber bushes, I’ve got some new ones ready to be put on. Mick

    Hi from Worcestershire

    Looking at that photo has reminded me, I’m looking for a tailpipe finisher like that for my V8, any suggestions who sells them? Local motor factors aren’t very helpful..... Mick

    1 1/2 Early V8's on ebay

    So you really wouldn’t know the wings are fibreglass. Shame about the front valance though....

    Nothing wrong with that, I’m the same although I will have a go at some very basic “mechanic-in”. My enjoyment is from driving it and listening to the glorious soundtrack! Mick

    Mine has 4 fibreglass wings, to look at them you’d never know, as cobraboy says I’ve no rot to worry about. Shame about the doors though....;) Mick

    New Distributor, won't run for long

    I had similar,multiple, issues, last thing we changed was the fuel pump. Along with carbs overhauled, new plugs, leads, fuel filter and coil. Plus we replaced the oil which contained lots of petrol from all the attempts to start the blasted thing......! Runs like a dream now.
