Re: Number plate recommendations?

Thanks for the idea geo. I don’t know of any local auto jumbles, but perhaps I’ll come across one at a show next year. I believe you're in Scotland? Try some generic listing sites, such as this one: https://www.scotlandautojumble.co.uk/classic_car_events.shtml I love a good browse at an autojumble....

Re: No spark

Myoldjalopy I suspect your are right about the timing comment. When I fitted an Accuspark, I had to turn the distributor a considerable amount anti clockwise from where it had been with the points setup. So if he has not moved it the timing is probably way out for the points now, and it will be ver...

Re: red insulator pads - wiper motor

It might be that the other one is for a different design motor housing, that used the same brushes.

But I suppose the obvious question is ... Well what was in there before you took it apart...? :wink:

Re: Number plate recommendations?

Do you have any decent Auto Jumbles near you (once they open again)? I've never checked their prices, because I'm not in the market for plates, but I know the Newark one has a Plate maker or 2 on-site. I'm sure they're going to be a bit more cost effective that a larger business. Might be worth a lo...

Might be worth getting to know him, these people are getting hard to find. I knew an old boy once, now sadly gone, wouldn’t throw anything away and was very resourceful, he was a one off and I learnt a lot from him. I've spoken to him a few times. It was about the 4th or 5th time we spoke that he b...

We have a new neighbour who moved in about 4 weeks ago. (House with Blue X) He's in his mid 70s. This is a Google Earth of were we live, a small cul-de-sac area just set back from our actual road.

Re: New member saying "Hello"

Not a genuine - a replica - We wonder why it was done .... I does make us chuckle when we look at it. I have Basil fitted with embossed POLICE signs front & rear and a Winkworth bell and Spotlight on the front. Give him this sort of appearance.http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BGmS3PwGWG8/SfW5uCw5U3I/AAAAA...

Re: Something for series 2 owners

That is a strange listing, as there can be no excuse for running the car without the services being done. Even the free first 500 mile check-up. I too was struck by that. Perhaps the as found in the loft of the sellers late grand farther and was unopened. Is actually an indication of the grandfathe...

OK, so now know there is a supply.That's progress.

So with the Shopping Centre company 'intu' calling in the Administrators, the Nottingham Post has done a piece of the building of the Broadmarsh Centre, which is currently in the midst of demolition/rebuilding, so probably going to be an eyesore for years in the current climate.

Re: No spark

Irrespective of whether the car is -ve or +ve earth, before going to all the trouble of changing it over to Points, the question remains, is there actually a supply at the coil when the ignition is switched on? Yes, there's a reasonable probability that the Acuspark unit has failed, but since we don...

Re: No spark

Have you checked to see if you've got the LT (12v) side of the coil circuit correct? All the talk has been about the HT side so far. Is there 12v to the coil when the ignition is switched on? The Ecuspark/Points switch the earth on and off. see here: https://www.minimania.com/images/LucasPointsIgnit...
