    I noted there is a difference in the fasteners on the bottom of the firewall between early and later TD's.

    TD 4139 (Nov 1, 1950) has a fastener nut that looks similar to a Philidas nut. The later TD has a cage nut.

    Who has a later TD that has the one like mine?

    I would agree in that I have not seen any rust in my car. It has lead a reasonably dry life.

    The "felt" in this area looks more like fine horsehair. I have not seen much that looks similar.

    Thank you all for your comments.

    I am still of the opinion that while felt is not waterproof that in itself is a good thing. What goes in easily goes out easily.

    Now if I was in a climate of constant rain I might have a different opinion.

    The fuel pump current draw should be evident audibly.

    Turn the idle down far enough and the generator will not produce enough output and the engine will stall.

    Looks like it was all things normal really, listen for and time the fuel pump cycles, mine is every 5-7 seconds with the engine at idle. With my electronic pump from the late Dave DuBois there is no mistaking what it is when i...

    You may well be right but I just cant see you being able to fully charge up in 5 mins.

    I'm gonna use 30-pound roofing felt (tar paper). Water resistant. Any water that is trapped should be able to drain out and evaporate. At least that's what I believe.

    How many if us have a petrol pump on our drive?

    As range and charge speed increase, there will be less and less need for street and drive charge points. Petrol stations will become charging stations. It's already happening. Give it time.

  • Nigel Atkins18 June 2021

    What do you mean by ignition light was loose, the holder to the gauge, the bulb to the holder or the holder was hanging outside of the gauge?

    Normally the light being on when the engine is running means the battery isn't getting charged (unless you mean running at slow idle).

    A photo might help, this where phone cameras can be useful as they're easy to position and even if it takes a...
