  1. Yesterday
  2. Complete Pinto and 5 speed box has got to be worth £750 minimum regardless of condition.
  3. I think the rule was, mechanical are more accurate but messy, electrical are easier but not as accurate, that may have now changed
  4. I have a supercharger here to go on, was supposed to have been this winters project, but without a garage I'm getting to that age where I don't want to be working outside in the cold.
  5. Yep it's coming to the right time of year, everybody is coming out of hibernation, the 2 litre boat anchor must be worth something to somebody I would have thought.
  6. Thanks for the advice will post on ebay
  7. Last week
  8. That's very kind of you - you could make a bit of cash on that engine alone. I'd put it on ebay as an auction starting at £50... anything you get is a bonus and much bigger audience than here.
  9. I have a Robin Hood 2B in my garage which has been there for a few years and is unfinished. All the parts to complete the project are there. It is rolling chasis complete wheels, brakes, suspension, engine & gearbox fitted. It has a 2 litre pinto engine in running order. I have decided that at the age of 75 I am unlikely to finish the project and could use the space in the garage. Clearly the new owner would need to collect.

    @richyb66 can knock one of those up in no time Crazy Scandinavians...too many long winter nights...
  13. Great looking car you have there - cool colour...
  14. Thank you for your reply Mr. Foz, I see here in New Zealand we have VDO Gauges. https://www.repco.co.nz/globes-batteries-electrical/electrical-accessories/gauges/vdo-pressure-gauge-electric-12v-0-1000-kpa-350010017/p/A1195484 Will try and find the sender https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009RUY14/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 Im tempted to buy as comes with senders, but would have to look at piggy-backing the factory light switch down the line
  15. My opinion is that electric would probably be easiest. VDO used to do a gauge and matching sender for the pinto which had 2 connections on the sender. One connection to the pressure gauge and the other one to the original dashboard oil warning light. I think they still do it - have a search on the web for VDO gauges and senders. Steve
  16. Firstly thanks to Nigel for the explanation I think I am getting my simple brain around the logic now, thanks to Phil for the offer as well I do work in the garage industry (not on the spanners) but plenty of access to parts. @richyb66 has offered to come and sort in a couple of weeks but after all the help and some further research I am now feeling quite confident I will attempt to wire myself safe albeit a simpler circuit to Nigel's. safe in the knowledge Rich is not too far away ! Fingers crossed
  17. If you need relays and cable I have loads that got stripped from mx5
