Keeps going on and off and resetting itself back to 1.00am, often when going over bumps. Either a loose connection or dry joint I reckon.

Loose power connections. 4 pins on the back I think - ground, permanent live, switched live and "lights on" dimmer. At worst, the first 3 loose will cause all those problems and at best it's either of the first two loose.

The coupe's going to get a bit of love this spring/summer with some new front struts to make sure the MOT doesn't mention them again.

It'll also get fluids change - brake, gearbox oil & coolant - and a fuel filter if I can finally get the pipe nut loose :headbanging

In addition to all the usual service items.

And I'll hopefully get round to fitting the shortshift gearlinkage (also courtesy of 1234dist) with a rebushed selector yoke to firm up the gearchange.
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams...and now Turbos
