Re: 289 Ammeter Question

Hi Frank, I think you will find that most of us with Smith's instruments actually have a voltmeter fitted but with an ammeter card. Ammeters were better suited to cars with dynamos and voltmeters for cars with alternators.

Re: Full harness belts

I guess you must have warmer weather than here if you wear a t shirt when driving!

Re: Full harness belts

OK in a FIA or Le Mans, but a bit of a faff in a slabside. I remember 'convoying' many times with another member who had these and it took for ages before he was ready to drive off.

Re: Cobra rear lights LED conversion

I'm certain that one of our more 'senior' members designed and fitted LED rear lights to his 289 way back in the early 2000s.

Re: Drivetrain noise

Clutch release bearing? Does the noise go away when you depress the clutch pedal slightly?

Re: Inner tie-rod balljoint

The play on the offside is taken up by the steering shaft. As far as I could make out there is no bush on that side.

Heart 200

Following on from the successful NC500 route, a new 200 mile touring route in Central Scotland has been announced. Taking in many roads that I have travelled in my 289, it offers some excellent driving roads without having to travel to the North of Scotland.

Re: Kit Car Show Sunday 5th, Monday 6th May 2019

Perhaps the timing is wrong. Weather at this time of the year can be fickle so maybe the end of the month or early June.
