Quoted from efp


but wood rim Formula wheels were an official upgrade on spits/gt6s, and Moto-litas are classic albiet unofficial, enhancement, but anything else is to my mind a retrograde step.


Forget Formula.  Apart from the one at £300 on ebay I have a restored one for sale at £100 - for a small chassis car (i.e. Vitesse) but without the boss.  

Yes Formula are very nice and correct upgrade but Motoita are more practical as full range of bosses and styles.

Dammit, i've been drinking wine and i've bought that too!



It's dangerous to drink and surf the bay of evil!  


There are other opportunities for spares days, and even autojumbles, but that one in stonleigh is the main one dedicated to our trumps.

I mean i just made a fuel gauge checker from an old glasses case.
That's time consuming, unnecessary and cost money.
Exactly the sort of thing i love.

It should do the job of the fuel level sender so i can check the sender, wires and gauge without taking it out of the tank.
It's just a variable resistor (potentiometer) for couple of quid on ebay.

Spot on, Paula.

See: http://www.triumphexp.com/phorum/read.php?8,936993  GT6 sender almost certainly the same

Quote: "Full - ~32 ohms

Half - ~100 ohms

Empty - ~253 ohms"

That's a most professional-looking multimeter!

I just used a stick through the tank neck...


Acclaim - fully working and on the road
13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...
Mk1 2000 - it's still alive, just sleeping
Expert 815d - the slug

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.

I like it as it's analogue and very very cheap. I've had it a couple of years and it's a bargain too! £10!

Excuse if I'm being a bit stupid and have missed something, but that reading on the multimeter is showing 20 Ohms.  If you had the rotary switch on the X10 range then it would be 200 Ohms.

I'm only saying this in case you are trying to calibrate your glasses-case-potentiometer-tank-sender-test-equipment before using it, ending up with an error, and having to resort to using Ferny's stick.
