fuel pump fuse

Removing the relay put it to rights so I don't think its the cut out. I could connect the cut out the the rear window supply and run the pump with the rear window switch if stranded though

fuel pump fuse

There are a few - like the central locking but I could see none with the wire colouring of the pump fuse. The cable from the relays are also taped up so you cannot easily follow them. Obvoiusly a job for when I have the time to spare. Thanks for the thought though.

AM is of course more likely to suffer from noise - like the wiper motor and ignition system so you will have to be sure that your suppression capacitors and chokes are all fitted and are good

fuel pump fuse

I have a intermittant fault in that the fuel pump sometimes does not run. I am fairly sure it is a relay base fault as taking the two relays out and putting them back in gets the pump running again. I will take the bases out and have a look at them when time permits but at rhe same time would like t...

Wheel spacers

When fitting vented discs a 10mm wheel spacer is normally required. I would avoid spacers that are not "solid" but are only made too fit around the studs

V8 engine swops

Ran a V8 in our 6A for over 20 years. Made no difference to insurance cost biggest problem is the exhaust manifolds which you have to get specially made and the foot wells will lose space - only the drivers side for the 6 but both for the 5

As 5s rear SS bumpers can be used for the Coupe as well it seems to be a good idea if they can make them for the Coupe also..

Last year while getting the tax I clicked the box to confirm the car was over 40yrs old. I then had it MOTd as normal. This year I coud not see a box and as I have only done 800miles in it and still not got it back together ( not had the time ) does it need a MOT or as it was listed as being over 40...

1400 vs 1600

If I remember correctly you need to make sure the "new" box has a input shaft of the same length - just about level with the bell housing - some gearboxes have a longer shaft. Philip is right the gearbox aft mount is different as it fits further back - I just cut and welded the 4 speed box mount. Th...
