Can't give you much tech advice as it's not my strength, but from what I have gathered in the past I'd recommend you to search 'Ballast resist(or)' in the Electrics section of the Forum. Quite a lot of similar issues.
Best of luck
That's tough, Richard - for that to happen on so short a timescale is totally bizarre - talk about 'not fit for purpose'.
I wonder how many other poor sods are having recurring problems after fitting this stuff.
I checked the eBay listing and it looks fine, I'd have bought it.:oops:
The 024 battery seems to be the one that is generally used for both front & rear mounted units.
My 67 TC is like yours so here's the size. The dimensions of mine (which is a good fit in the tray) are 10" x 7" x 7.5"(H).
I got hold of a black cased item 'cos I feel it looks better than the...
Interesting - I'm retired now, but between 2000 & 2003 I used a 1955 Sunbeam 90 for a daily 30 miles.

A Google search produces only Rover references, other than as a family name when shorn of...
First frost of the month this morning and the Mitsubishi wasn't going anywhere -battery flat as the proverbial!
So - jump on pushbike, cut across town to garage where Jumbo (1967 2000TC) was sleeping, fairly prolonged cranking but then rumbles into healthy life.
Drive back home, jump Mitsu and...
Are there any fans of "our" V8 engine looking for a winter project?
The engine in its original format in its original (somewhat tatty) body.

When I made the original post in this stream I really wouldn't have expected it to meander across to Mods & Rockers!
Ah well, Happy Days - in 1964/65 I had a Norton 88 with twin Amal carbs. (and a black crash hat with a yellow scorpion on the front )
Come to think of it, that was probably as...
