Centre exhaust box.

Am I right in thinking it is acceptable to do away with the middle exhaust box and just have the end box on an otherwise standard exhaust system and standard engine? That is to say it will not result in excessive noise, tuning issues, an MOT failure or similar. supercass

Re: Clutch woes.

So to update. Have bled the slave cylinder, nothing seemed to come out out when I first removed the bleed nipple, but is now flowing. Had to start the car in gear (reverse) to get it out of my narrow garage. The clutch did go down once during this procedure and I thought it was resolved but no such ...

Re: Clutch woes.

Stupid question but do you leave the reservoir cap off overnight, Busheytrader? Theory via another forum (Sorry!) is that the clutch friction plate is stuck (the car has bee inactive for a while) and the old master cylinder seals were compromised when the cutch pedal was pressed, that the clutch fri...

Clutch woes.

Started the car to drive it out of the garage after working away as a key worker for many months. No movement on clutch pedal. Further pressure resulted in a noise which seemed to come from the bulkhead and then there was full and immediate movement but the pedal was sloppy. Nothing like it should b...

Re: Fitting an immobilizer.

Thanks for replies. It is only to be one point on a two or three point system, since I still have a manual fuel pump I have an electric valve which will be located in the fuel line as the second point. I'm aware that as modern cars get more difficult to steal thieves are turning to older cars. super...

Re: Fitting an immobilizer.

Thanks for you reply. Never thought of that. I seem to recall the wiring for the gearbox light finishing under the console but think I repurposed it. The part of the loom I have in mind is right under the car adjacent to the gearbox. Why would the cable double back though, that is what made me think...

Fitting an immobilizer.

On the five speed gearbox wiring loom there is a white wire with a red tracer which exits the socket via one terminal and is immediately doubled back via another terminal. I understand this is because it is the wiring to prevent an automatic car being started in gear and as it is not needed in a man...

Re: TR7 Headlamp Flash CCT & LED headlights

Don't the EEC regulations state that you must have a warning system to let you know in the event of an indicator bulb failure?

Re: TR7 Headlamp Flash CCT & LED headlights

Can someone answer this for me?
If you swap the flasher unit for a transistorized version which is not thus thermally controlled do you lose the bulb failed warning facility (i.e. the remaining bulb / bulbs flash at a slower rate or not at all).

Re: Rear Cruise Light

I believe indicators not flashing simultaneously is an MOT fail. I also understand the vehicle lighting regs only allow for one repeater.
