concur with all above comments but a ring spanner will 'just' go in rather than the socket,
Yes, I used a ring spanner, a long one for plenty of leverage :)

Voltmeter, Middlebridge.

Presumably should be fairly easy to confirm which type it is, as I would have thought a moving coil meter should respond much more quickly to inputs than the relatively sluggish bimetallic ones? In fact that does make me wonder slightly, when you say Voltmeter temperamental! is it possible that it's...

Correct Braided Clutch Hose Girling?

Maybe the copper washer is only on that end to stop it getting lost, due to the nut?

to heat or not to heat

Yes, the pipe is needed for correct function of the gearbox. It provides vacuum to the modulator situated on the side of the gearbox, which has a diaphragm which senses the manifold depression and uses that to control the gearchange points. (the coil is important too, as it helps to discourage any l...

Yes it is (I believe) Metro as well, but they're a bit old now and I think Land Rover is the most recent user, and seems to have been usually quoted in the past as a source of switches (especially at more modest prices?) :)

Manny's SS1 1600

Well, it certainly sounds like a new switch/connector are a must (I think from memory, the switch is Land Rover?). The dipped beams are not actually relayed (despite the number of relays in the lights) so a relay is a good idea to stop a recurrence (and it makes the lights much brighter too). It mig...

Oh dear..... :( I suspect, if you take the column shroud off, you may find that the scene behind the switch looks a bit like this:

Could you find a local hydraulic pipe specialist, who may recognise it, but even if he can't, may be able to attach a new pipe to the existing union?

Restoration of 1965 Elan S2

That's a bit of a blow :( - if you're paying that sort of money, you expect the job to be done right. Hopefully they will be aware of the potential damage to their reputation, and will decide to do the decent thing.....

12 degrees is normal for carb as well, that's one thing that wasn't done wrong by the garage (see project thread ;-) )
That's interesting, as it seems to contradict the data in the Cologne Engine Supplement which the Club sells? Does anyone else have a view?

Cologne engine 'running on'
