  1. ok gentlemen a big thanks to your replies and now not so worried about doing the job myself as had visions of stripping off outer skin and welding stiffener into place - turning out an easier weekend that what I envisaged TSSC forum to the rescue again Thanks Gordon Corbett
  2. woulld be obliged if anyone can tell me how to fit one as just discovered that my passenger door as not got one - piece of wood stuck at bottom to stop window disappearing. Had a look at previous items but did ot come across any advice Thanks Thanks the estimator
  3. Thanks for all help given - local sail repairer has had a look at hood and taking on the work so thanks again for all the replies Gordon
  4. OK Pete - Sorry have been away dealing with family funeral and while away the firm that was to sort my hood (new windows) cancelled on me (diff entry) When I come back this weekend will check all available advice (was not aware of letters and numbers on diff) In meantime thanks to you all that answered Gordon Corbett
  5. Thanks Dick as have a sail maker in Inverness-never thought of him Thanks Gordon
  6. Hi to you all - windows appear to welded/stitched into hood and they are split along bottom join. Know of any firms that repair hoods Thanks Gordon
  7. Sorry should read form not form -lack of proof reading Gordon
  8. Does anyone know of a form that will replace the side windows on my hood - vitesse mk 2 Thanks Gordon
  9. Thanks Scrapman Will contact my local vauxhall garage and get them to check the rpm BUT also going to try out previous suggestions as well> For info the engine gearbox chassis numbers all match the DVLA/Heritage info so hence of the opinion that most likely that parts of an earlier herald/vitesse used Thanks again for all help given
  10. Hi Pete etc etc Thanks for all the advice given but will get gearbox cover off and try and check the ratio. With regards to the dizzy it was a new dizzy from the club along with a new cable and already have swapped the rev counter and while his runs almost 1000 revs slower in his it jumps up to 4000 revs at 50 when in mine and my rev counter in his runs at slightly less that 3000 revs so hence reason i am not looking at rev counter Going to follow some of the advice given - because not an exchange unit sellers are asking around the £800 price which is outwith my pension Thanks again for all help given
  11. Thanks Pete but no mini wheels - when that car was renovated by a Halifax they replaced most of the parts with Herald parts ie dizzy, fuel pump, brakes etc etc but confirmed that it is the original engine according to the DVLA /Heritage sheet so really the car is as normal apart frpm slow/noise etc etc but will check out ideas given first week Thanks once again
  12. Pete Yes rev counter showing 3.55:1 and no the clutch is not slipping. The car drives very good and is responsive : when ttravelling from shows and sitting at 50mph (con via sat nav) the revs are just over 4000 and engine sounds as if should be going faster. Last trip I had vitess saloon in front sitting at 50 for few miles - his revs were short of 3000 and mine 4000 + Thanks once again and will check all answers out
  13. Johns New cable runs of a new dizzy I got from the club and was running at same revs before changed the above Gordon
  14. Thanks and I do live in the north - when travelling at 50 mph my rev counter is showing just over 4000 revs and this has been verified and drivers of vitesse at car shows confirm that they rev below 3000 at 50mph. Will accept any ratio as long as the diff is right for a vitesse mk2. Will also check out chic dog Thanks for all help given as I am a doddery 70 yr old but enjoy the vitesse so much 1540 hrs Speedo checked via satnav and is ok and my mate that has a mk 2 saloon tried his rev counter and readings showing the same as my own in my car over 4000 revs at 50mph. Thanks for all excellent replies and will try and have ratio checked via John's way Thanks
