    P6 manual gearbox detent springs

    Hi Harvey. As you may have seen I have put this query on FB this morning. By reading your reply today, I was reminded of the lock bolt. I will have a look at that this week. Thanks again, Harvey.

    Pre-engaged starter motor wiring.

    I have a few hundred photos of work done since 2016. Spent 17/18 months just cutting rust out and welding new plate in. It truly is a labour of love!! The floor and chassis of the car was virtually non existent. Minstrel spent 2 years parked on the kerb of a urban road. Had more water under the...

    Pre-engaged starter motor wiring.

    My wife Ann only paid £375 for the car! The guy just wanted the money back he had spent 5 new tyres. The pics dated 02-03-2016 were taken the day I brought Minstrel home. The first 3 are what the front of Minstrel looks like now. The ones dated 30th April were taken 2020 after I had sprayed the...

    Pre-engaged starter motor wiring.

    When my wife bought him for me she named him Minstrel as he is Black & White. Lol. I like the series Life On Mars but the Mrs didn't. Lol. I had some good times as a teenager in the early 70s. Also owned 2 P5's in 1973 too. I had a taxi firm. I had both the 3.5 Coupe and 3.5 Saloon. Even to this...

    Pre-engaged starter motor wiring.

    Good to hear, Dave. Can be a pain when you think you've fixed something only fort something to do with it goes wrong. Lol. Now just got to get my starter motor sorted and hopefully get Minstrel back on the road.

    Pre-engaged starter motor wiring.

    Morning. Yes. If you look at the photos you can see where two wires had melded together causing a short. I think they had been like it before I got the car. There was also some badly repaired wiring I had to replace as well. Have not had any problem with it since I repaired it........touch...

    P6 manual gearbox detent springs

    As Minstrel keeps jumping of of 4th gear I have been told it is probably the detent spring that needs replacing. So now I am looking to replace all three detent springs in my 2000SC manual gearbox. Are these easy to replace? I know I have to remove the console from the top of the gearbox to get...

    A few new problem with Minstrel!

    Thanks for the explaination, Pete. I know what to look for now. Lol. Its annoying having to keep asking. 20 years ago I wouldn't have had to ask. I had a serious car accident 2001 that left me with brain damage to my memory both long and short term. Also left me with 4 plates on my right hip...

    A few new problem with Minstrel!

    I used Minstrel to go to work yesterday for the first time. I only work 6 miles from home so didn't travel far. Had no trouble at all on the way to work apart from slight misfiring. I need to tune the carb better. I think Minstrel is running a bit weak. However, different story on the way home...

    My 2000TC 'Minstrel' needs a lot of TLC..

    Sills. I may not have described the sills correctly but most of the time the pictures tell you if the sill is internal or external. Also the the photos show how bad the rust originally was!! All of the welding done here was done in 2016
