Re: Electrical problem

have a look behind the dash and check all the brown wires are ok, (not crispy and/or melted) in turn disconnect and reconnect each one. It could just be bad earths. Check both ends, at the instruments and the earth posts behind the dash.

Outstanding Broady. Thank you
Best of luck, and further bother and I will be happy to help. It all seems techy and complicated at first but becomes very simple quickly

Re: 2.0ltr on twin 44's

it is possible to lower the engine slightly as its an IRS, but you have to be careful not to stress the gearbox nose cone mount. The engine mount holes could be slotted if you just need a couple of mm or more drastic measures such as cutting and lengthening the mounts if its needed.

Re: Help - I kow nothing about my car!!!

it sounds very much like dirty old fuel. how often was the car serviced prior to leaving the UK? I would do as has been said, drain the fuel tank (remove the filter if you can) and then flush through with some diesel. Replace all of your rubber fuel hose. it will be perished if its been on there 6 y...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

I was going to try it the jig saw way. But as id done that previously with mixed results I decided to go for full pans with small mods at the front and back. Im pretty please the more I look at it. Once the welds are dressed and its epoxyed it wont look bad at all. Just not sure what to do with the ...

Nice. Sure you are making it look too easy, everyone will want to have a go. They are quite welcome! I feel like i've had enough of the 11pm finishes in the garage. One more evening this week and then im taking a week off! Well from manual work, I've got to study aviation legislation. And all the o...

Re: '67 Square continued.....

Going to build a complete spare engine, rather than salvage parts from the current one? The heads are repairable but you need to know the right welding men. Not many folk are interesting in trying as its so hard to do. I assume your heater pipes were just an interference fit? They should have hose c...

Hope you get it done before your knees and hips get creaky and everything stiffens up (or not as the case may be). I can report that WD40 doesn't work on seized-up human bodies! I am slowly seizing up, though its muscle ache rather than joints. From sitting at odd angles to clean up and reach vario...

Re: Master cylinder fluid leak

So I've visited the car today and noticed that the port has filled up with fluid, which is strange, even though nothing is connected on the gravity side (Rubber and elbow removed). So I suspect there's an internal leak allowing the pressure side to get to the low pressure side. I've also pulled the...

Cheers very much! This is a late car too. I haven't removed the engine and box as such, just taken the sub frame off the pan. It's loads better, with a couple of casters and leave the wheels on. You can the move rear axel, box and engine around as one lump. I'm rather fed up of it now. I can see why...
