  2. Gearbox and Overdrive ready for refit The od solenoid lower fixing is a 4ins 2ba screw with tube and nuts . Might be a tad long and will adjust length when fitting . This will ensure the solenoid will never fail 🤔 Won’t be refitting till mid august though as we will be away Paul

  6. My GT6 Mk3 has four connections, numbered 1,2,3,5 on the Lucas switch (Pt no 1575A) as per the photo of the switch module in the original post. The Haynes Manual wiring diagram also shows a 5th connector numbered 6 that controls an anti run-on valve, this is not fitted to UK cars? The diagram states "Not all items are fitted to all models". The Haynes wiring diagram also shows connectors 4 and 2 on the switch connected together on the switch confirming Doug's post.

    Spitfire 1500 horn

    My 1300 spit has a horn relay, maybe it shouldn't. Had a problem when recomissioning the car a few years ago. Even when connecting the units directly to the battery one sounded like a strangled cat. Finally managed to find that the culprit was crud on the contacts. Mine also had adjusters on the horn case which were also crudded up. You can strip down the horn units, I have done it. Inside they are very simple. I have photos somewhere. Drill out the rivets and replace with suitable bolts. Fiddly, but worth the effort. Have a look here.. https://forum.tssc.org.uk/topic/2580-horn-unit-faulty/?tab=comments#comment-23941 ..there may be something that might help.
