Membership

Not wishing to ruffle any feathers but, filled in the membership form and sent off a cheque a couple of months ago not heard anything since. I appreciate this is a task carried out on a voluntary basis by dedicated people I am not complaining. Just wanted to know had the paperwork arrived ok.

Fuel injection or carbs

I've owned my fuel injected 411 for just over 12 months, it's been problematic!! My question is would most owners stick with the fuel injection or convert to carbs? I'm guessing keeping it factory is the best option but it seems parts and expertise are pretty thin on the ground regarding problem sol...

Re: Side marker lights

Could I ask where you got your lenses? The only ones I've spotted on eBay are Amber. I've got a mate on the case trying to find the base units if he finds any I will let you know.

Re: 411 1972 Wiper motor

Didn't know that. I don't think I would be up for removing the wiper motor, a bit to much Athritis in the hands. Thank you for the info.

Re: 411 1972 Wiper motor

I guess that seems obvious, should give more detail... The live feed from the fuse to the wiper motor switch has a male to female connector situated just behind the clocks in the dash. I'm guessing it's been done to aid the removal of the wiper motor should the need arise.!

Re: 411 1972 Wiper motor

Cheers Dave. Had to get my head under there anyway. Wipers not working but fuse not blown. Seems there is a live feed from the fuse to the wiper switch. This had become disconnected.

Unleaded fuel

Hi when I purchased my 411 last summer I asked the previous owner if I could run the car on unleaded fuel. He said it was ok due to this type of vehicle being designed for the American market, and they had introduced unleaded. Is this fact or fiction???

Re: Ignition problem

Will check to see if I have fuel pumping tomorrow and check for a spark. I can live with changing the coil and fuel pump fingers crossed I haven't trashed anything else. And yes the ignition was on for eight hours and it still turned over no prob.
