  1. I don't have an 'er indoors so the garage ceiling still needs painting a year after the leak. Doug
  2. Well done Colin! And on to the next one. You haven't done a Stag yet? Doug
  3. Nigel, Uh, no, my MK3 had it when I bought it in 1978. So it would only have been 5 years old. Although I do believe late MK3s were built with bits out the spares bin. Doug
  4. Joanna, This is what it looks like, the centre box is barely wider than the pipe, but it does make a difference. My brother has the semi sports on his Spitfire and it is LOUD I prefer the standard system which is loud enough to turn heads. Doug
  5. Due to my recent interest in engine mounts I had a look for them, they're in the on-line shop, but not it the catalogue. That's odd, what else is lurking on-line? Doug
  6. My new system replaces a similar system bought 40 years ago, it was guaranteed for life, but where I bought it from I have no recollection. Probably Rimmers. They don't last forever the baffles and welds deteriorate. Doug
  7. Is there an echo in here? "Last year I had to replace my ignition switch because it wouldn't connect the 6v on start up." Nobody listens to me! Doug

    Actually that ain't funny, that's exactly where I got it! Doug
  9. You got in before me Nigel! I also have a Bells system from the Club Shop, however mine is standard and has the additional centre box as originally fitted. It did rattle at first but, I re-aligned it all and no problems. Doug

    I once worked for British Airways on their computer systems at Heathrow. I frequently had to visit Load Control, a wooden shed like building on the tarmac. One time Concorde took off, the noise was incredible and the whole building shook. When I went outside to my car, a mini Countryman, I found the shock wave had blown in the windows on one side. Now THAT was loud. Doug

    Bloody is! My brother has a semi sports exhaust on his Spitfire and at it's MOT it was 1db below the limit. It is LOUD and he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! Doug
  12. Rich, I've had sludge in the fuel line, rubber slivers and a rogue fibre washer floating about and occasionally blocking the tank outlet. However all these caused rough running before engine death. In this case I would suspect something electrical, loose wire, dodgy connector or electronic ignition. Do you have a biased ignition system? Last year I had to replace my ignition switch because it wouldn't connect the 6v on start up. Doug
  13. I got loose carpets from Coverdale, they could do the colour I wanted, Chestnut, an original Triumph interior, but not available anywhere as a moulded set. Comments on here talk about how good is the tunnel fit, however my observation is that the original GT6 tunnel carpet simply drapes over the tunnel and is not at all fitted. Doug
  14. Yeh, I've had that, a heavy load, but fortunately no beeping. Tyres were at their regular pressure so I put in another 5lb all round, but the light didn't go out till I unloaded. Then I looked at the manual which indicated the tyres could go up to 50psi. Don't think I'd chance that! Doug
