Mk1 boot floor form

Hello,
I am making up repair sections for my rusty boot floor. It appears to bend upwards about a third of the way from the fuel tank towards the back of the car. Is this the original form? many thanks

Re: Boot Floor repair panel Mk1 Saloon

I have another question regarding the Mk1 boot floor. I have started making up the repair panels and the boot floor seems not to be flat. It curves up away from the petrol tank towards the back of the car. Is this how the floor is originally or should it be flat.
many thanks, Tom

Boot Floor repair panel Mk1 Saloon

Several small holes have revealed themselves in the front left hand corner of my boot floor. I have tried all the normal searches for a repair panel without any luck. Does anybody have a section of boot floor I could purchase as a repair panel.. or any suggestions for the repair? Many thanks Tom

difficulty starting when warm

I am having some difficulties with my 2500S starting when the engine is hot. Typically at a motorway service station. After opening the bonnet and waiting about 20 mins it starts again. I would appreciate any suggestions what might be causing this and how to solve the problem.

Re: Missfiring

thanks for your comments. It was the points. I checked and adjusted them at the start of the problem, but should have just replaced them. I put new ones in and the problem went. There was quite a lot of oil inside the distributor I don t know if this was also a problem? Now it runs great again. Elec...

Re: Missfiring

I tried the red rotor arm but unfortunately it didnt improve the situation. The distributor does have a bit of braded wire so I will try this. (still on points) Is there not a potential problem of damaging the coil by bypassing the ballast resistor? Compression still to be tested.

Re: Missfiring

Thanks for your comments. Mike I meant condenser. It started off as a missfote on a single cylinder but now seems to be less isolated. I'll start with rotor arm and wire.

Missfiring

Hi, I am running a 2500S in Berlin. It has been suffering from an intermittant missfire which is becoming worse. It was a short dropping out of one cylinder and now it has become more of a splutter. It stalls and starts badly. Leads, Coil, Resistor, Distributer cap and plugs have been replaced. Do y...
