Phil you are a real Alfisti.

Still plugging on with the rear window lower edge.
If anybody is thinking of sealing up their rear window I can now say the best way is to remove the trim inside and out, take the glass out and window winder, remove what is left of the water trap box - then weld in a length of 1/2" square tube between the inner and outer sheetmetal (where the glass goes). Skim gaps with filler, prep and paint. A sheet of polycarbonate or Lexan is then cut to the size of the glass down to the inside, bottom edge of the trim. Reassemble.
In other words NOT how I have done it! (But to be fair my top edges were really rusted out anyway so it was always going to be a struggle.

Not quite sure what you mean Phil !

Did you leave the water trap box with winder inside ?

No Chris - but I had folded what was left of the outer top lip, down and into the inner top lip to close the gap(Page 29 on this thread shows how is was put together). So that the original glass could be used on the outside of the wing - with that wide strip of rubber along the lower window edge to "hide" the gaps.
I have now had to rebuild the top edge and have a new lip to hold the original trim piece in place on the outer bottom edge.

oh okay !

well you couldnt have known what you would want to do afterwards when you were doing it the first time. At least now you can re-shape that part of the rear wing as well that needed shaping

I suppose there's not much room to work from the inside of the wing now with the engine in and all Still got the other side to do as well ! Turns out you are getting busy right before the meet then Phil ! Keep up the good work

GGGRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I thought that I would have a change from bodywork rubbing down and sort out why the heater motor wasn't working.
1 Took the air box off to get to the three wires and check the earth connection - ok but still no motor working.
2 Take off the two water pipes.
3 Undo the 2 heater flap control wires.
4 Undo the 4 securing screws from under the dashboard
5 Wriggle the heater unit.
6 undo the Bonnet release rod to give more "Wriggle room.
7 Need to undo final heater flap
8 need to undo unit holding the heater flap control arms
9 need to remove two central gearlever/ashtray/radio unit sections to get to screws for 8!
10 Finally able to get Heater unit out - once the throttle cable is undone as I had threaded it through the heater flap wire hole!
11 Remove spring clips
12 cut through foam strips on join lines
13 Remove motor unit, spin by hand - still no joy with 12V electric connected.

GGGGGRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Examine heater motor to see if the brushes are stuck.
Cannot see how it comes apart
Wire mesh stapled to plastic surround.
Cut through mesh to get to motor splindle.
Remove securing washer by force.
Spindle still tight on fan hub - still not working

BIG HAMMER!!
bits fly off
Can see the brushes
One has no end cap and spring
Push it in with small screw driver ___----IT WORKS



So has anybody got a working complete heater motor and or heater unit for sale? Sud or Sprint as I think they are the same.................

I can imagine you with a big hammer smashing the heater to bits and then dancing the twist on the remains

I think I've got a spare heater, not sure if it works or not. If you have trouble finding one, let me know
.... and put down that hammer

Well thanks to Mark (Mark Alfa) I now have a working fan in the heater and it is now back in the 6C. I have also wired up the Radio/Tape unit that I had just had slotted in place to fill the hole in the dashboard! So I am slowly working round fixing the little (And not so little!!) problems prior to it's next outing to Duxford.

Well the wings are finally both sprayed - one side had a bit of a reaction in places and needed re flatting and spraying but now looks reasonable. Then I took out the bulkhead to access the alternator. There is a good connection to the big red wired terminal +11.6V but nothing to the green wire and there doesn't seem to be a connection to the dashboard red light (which does work) so if I have a positive to the lamp and then a new wire to the small alternator (green) terminal hopefully it will start to charge??
