Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

It wasn't me for the pipe. I was after the trim off the AC panel.
I'll check my pipes condition in case it would be good to have one "just in case".

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Update. TB2 - I have acquired a re-soldered fusebox so hope to exchange that soon to see if it cures the window issues. Funny how the car seems to know when it is about to start raining and when the windows are down... New middle box fitted as it had started blowing. TGM - Sounds like an OSR rear wh...

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Wow! Every day is a school day. I''ll measure the charging voltage to check, but that article looks like a solution if I have, I mean he has (!) a problem.

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Strange. It has a big "Pb" label that you can't see stuck on the side. Plubnum - Lead - (I am a Charted Chemist ;-) Must look up this new fangled Ca battery stuff. Ah Interesting...

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Battery for Fastback is a: TAB 100, 73Ah, 680A.

My saloon also had a new battery but it was a Platinum Prestige 075E. 60Ah, 550A.
Why the Fastback needs a bigger battery capacity, who knows? Maybe higher spec electrics or something.
