            Just hoping it'll work when I put it back together. On another note, I now have 3 spare correct ECU's for the car. Will be testing them all soon, and the dash ..................

                    Tiny progress but progress non the less. After fiddling about with the black bulb holders that came out of the dash display I realised that these were not the correct parts. After buying John Wilcox last white bulb holder and bulb, the display lit up properly. But I only had one working bulb as unknown to me my spares had blown. After trying most of the next few days getting a replacement bulb and failing badly I went back to my EPC to see if they fit any other models and discovered another part number for VP models. Put this into my search engine and found a company who had the part number on their website. Bit more looking and they also have the original part number listed they I was after, so will be contacting them this morning. Unusual as their a Racing Bristol company. Looking like happy days atm and makes it worthwhile searching. Many thanks Johnny for the link to Ring bulbs but they didn't have anything suitable

                      If anyone asked which component was going to interfere with progress, you'd never have guessed at a bulb! Presumably they would be used in something else at the time, but might not be easy to find out what. If the dash panel was made by Pektron, it might be worth ringing them, they are one of the few firms from the era that are still going, 01332 832424 , I used to know someone that worked there, but they havé moved on now. Not sure if they still do the bits they made for Rover, but Rimmers still sell wiper delays that were a Pektron part, I guess the degree of helpfulness depends on who picks the phone up......

                        Was a company call Teesdale Racing, and they had one of each, little expensive but have to have them. If you look at their website they have many obsolete parts on file. A bonus find there http://www.inracing.co.uk/teesdale-c...-parts-centre/

                            Strange concoction though. Plenty of car parts and Bristol racing. John wilcox does know of them and has a good word to say, just a bit expensive at £7 plus vat each and postage.

                              Ford pinto tensioner modified for the car, as I've done this on two other cars it's quite a simple thing to do. Freeing off the rear brakes tomorrow as if it rains its difficult to push, then cambelt etc on Saturday with luck. That's not as easy as later models but all ready to go now

                                Bulbs turned up today. Had a couple of hours spare this morning so plugged the dash to my fast check to check it, Unfortunately it has a fault on it so I plugged in my spare and that works properly so changed it over
