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.
It handled it really well, with impressive reliability, but I couldn't keep up with the corrosion and eventually the body was shot (1950's Rootes 'quality') and I sold it on, 'for restoration'...
I have to admit that I didn't really expect much in the way of an answer to my query, so thank you Horselogger and Demetris for the swift and erudite
(For those Anglophones like me with no Greek language knowledge, Horselogger said 'Thanks')
Just an idle query about this paint colour - does anyone know where the name, used in the 76-ish production era, comes from?
It appears to be the only paint name in Rudiger's listing that is 'invented'.
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.
Would make a striking summer cruiser to attend P6 events!
But hurry, the auction is this Saturday.
1964 Buick Convertible
It is actually a 1962 Skylark...
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...
Interesting point - I've rechecked and the cheque receipt is dated July 2nd but the invoice is in fact written 1st August 1967.
So the proud lady was able to drive home on the first day of 'F' suffix with everybody saying 'Look Look it's a new car!'
She had driven there in her Wolseley...
You turn the lights on with the dash switches and select main/dip with the LH column switch.
The headlight switch - to the right of the ignition key - only turns the headlamps on & 0ff and the sidelights have to be on already. This one does not select Main/Dip.
This function is on the...
It looks as if you will have the bits you need, but if that isn't the case then I have a sadly rusty, but functional, centre hinge that you can have.
PM me if you need it and it can go straight in the post. I've got a few pics as well if you want them.
Not too helpful I'm afraid, but my '67 TC does the same as regards the tach/speed readings.
As I know the transmission is standard spec it's definitely due to a faulty tach, which I ignore.
I realise you've checked it and would suspect the clutch, but your nose would soon tell you that was at...
When considering mirrors, think about whether you have become accustomed to door-mounted mirrors on your daily drives.
Wing mounted mirrors were common in the 60s /70s, door mounted less so - everything I drove in that era had wing mounted..
My '67 TC has its original mirrors fitted to the front...
