Re: Gauge lighting

Greetings... I replaced the gauge lights in one of my Morgans with LEDs and it was a big improvement. The light is cooler (whiter) and seems to improve the contrast. Gauges much easier to read.

Re: SI 330GT 2+2 cooling fan

Greetings... Some time ago, Cory posted a picture of the one from Big Brother. It was a single motor with a 3 blade cast aluminum fan. Little brother (my car) has no fan but I suspect it should have one. There are holes in the square tube that suggest there had been one. That skinny little blade in ...

Re: 330 MK1 brake reservoir

Greetings... Mine measure 2.5 inches just below the flange below the cap. The picture shows the mounting bracket quite well. The second mounting hole is just below and forward of the one you can see in the picture. This is on car 5769, a fairly early S1.

Re: seals/gaskets for around the wiper wheelboxes

Greetings... The wheel boxes come through the body work at different angles depending the angle of the windscreen. On my Turner with a very flat and upright windscreen, they are at a very flat angle-closer to horizontal. The Morgans have them at a bit more upright angle and my Ferrari has them at an...

Re: 330 Series 1 brake light switch

Greetings... I made up an adapter to use a switch with 1/8 npt maybe 30 years ago. I used a switch from 40's or so GM cars as it was the lowest switching pressure I could find. 60-120 psi. This is about the same as the one from Painless Wiring. I've since changed to one from RonFrancis wiring. It sw...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Greetings ... Never been a fan of resistor spark plugs. I'd try some none resistor ones. Also, check the resistance of the ballast resistor both cold and hot as well as the coils. If you put in new condensers and still have the old ones, try a change there as well. Also, hopefully you are using meta...

Re: Special Wrenches

Greetings... John, I'm in shock. You didn't already have the longer nuts? I have some 6mm coupler nuts that I am going to cut down.

Re: 1965 330 GT 2+2 Series 1 iterim car radio

Greetings... My 64 has an antenna in the right front fender. There is a ghost of the original silver paint under the mount. There is no evidence of a speaker in the rear. The car has no console so no speaker there. It had a radio hung under the dash and speakers in the doors added much later when I ...

Re: Fuel Tank insulating washers

Greetings... As I have the oil pan off my car (as well as lots of other parts) I shall take some pictures and measures. I'm assuming you mean the aluminum plates bolted to the top of the bottom plate.

Re: Sheet metal screws through firewall and footwell. Correct?

Greetings... On 5769, the carpet snaps are secured by what appears to be sheet metal screws on the firewall. The panels are coated with under coating and the pointy end of the screw sticks through maybe 1/8 inch. Not real evident due to the thickness of the under coating. The snaps on the floor are ...
