    Malcolm,

    At current exchange rates (.682 US$ to the ), that comes out to about $28,000 US$. Add another $4,000 for shipping (RO-RO or container) and brokerage, etc. and you're looking at $32,000 US$. That kind of money will buy an above-average TF, bordering perhaps on a show quality TF.

    I might suggest two things Malcolm:- T-Series cars fetch much higher prices in Europe than they ...

    See the thread, appropriately, "Engine Lock Wire" in the archives for the proper positioning of the two wires.

    Remember Jud, if you do go back to points, you'll have to re-wire the coil.

    Pertronix, 2 wires. Points, 1 wire.

    In the TD, (pertronix in a stock dizzy) I keep the points plate and a wire diagram.

    I am 6" 2", my wife is 5' 3" and we via for the use of the TD. I have the seat back as far back as possible and my wife has a pillow that puts her close enough to reach the pedals. We have owned and driven our TD since 1974, complete with 2 kids (they would probably hang us with today's laws about child seats) and a 90 pound German Shepard. If your potential buyer wants a really great car for f...

    I'm 6'5" and fit but that is with no under dash panel (that is where my knees go) and a extra modified seat cushion with a lower profile. Never drive the car with the top up as I would not be able to see the high mounted traffic lights that this state seems insistent on doing in contrast to other states that place at least one on a pole on the RH curb side about 10 feet off the ground. Biggest p...

  • prop03 May 2016

    Well... im thinking bad battrey

    i just got home and put a charger on it... the charger is saying its got 12 volts and is 70% charged

    but the battrey wont turn over the starter

    so im thinking the battry may have some dead cells

    then agian... if car gauge is showing 10 and the charger is showing 12 volts... it could just be some bad grounds

  • G Burgess03 May 2016

    Jerry,

    I'm just shy of 6'3", 220 lbs and I just fit.
    The first week I had the TF I almost ran over two older ladies in a crosswalk when I didn't see the crosswalk lights because the top of the windshield frame was at eye level.

    I barely missed swinging around them at the last second and stopped 15 feet past them. What really hurt was when one old gal shook her fist at me and yelle...

  • P Hehir03 May 2016

    Thanks for those dimensions Rich. I have two different sizes filters so I'll dig them out & compare measurements. One came from a local supplier who charged an arm & a leg, another from Ebay in the States which wasn't cheap & the third at a local swap meet for less than $20. I have no idea what they were originally fitted to. They all have the AC embossed cleaning instructions & one is about 2 inc...
