Almost became a doctor...

When I was young I decided I wanted to be a doctor, so I took the entrance exam to go to Medical School. One of the questions asked was to rearrange the letters *PNEIS* into the name of an important human body part which is most useful when erect. Those who answered SPINE are doctors today. The rest...

Starter motor removal

Much depends on what type of exhaust headers you have. Tubulars can be tricky; but I have always succeeded by first removing the nearside inner panel(assuming you have one). Then with the starter electric cable removed, you should be able to feed a socket on the end of a long extension behind the ma...

Essex 3.0 ltr Engine rebuild

I agree with Jim, having seen a lot of camshafts like that. It's usually because the engine has been stored or left standing for a long time with old oil in it. Old oil is contaminated and the impurities are corrosive.

Coil Earth

Ditto what Philip just said. I have seen several cases where the points have been wrongly assembled so either no current to the sprung point, or a dead short from the feed wire to the baseplate.

Rear axle hubs

So it's off? That sounds about normal to me. You will probably find there is an obvious high spot on the taper where the hub had been seized, you can rub that off with a strip of emery cloth;and re-assemble with a smear of copper slip . Some people will advise to re-assemble dry, but I reckon that's...

Why is my Fan so Cold?

Yes, there is an O at the top of the right-hand (temperature control) lever, and the difference between full heat and off is only about 1cm. Slight mal adjustment of the lever might cause you to shut the hot water off completely when you thin k you have set full heat.

Joe, that sounds exactly like my 6A. Peter, great minds think alike! I am in the process of fitting a small auxiliary fan unit, water-heated, in my footwell. How did you plumb yours in?

Essex block: get it decked?

In my non-expert opinion, that engine has been sleeved,which is why the rim of the bore looks OK. Ford sent quite a lot of these engines out after being sleeved in production, it was a way of saving blocks which had been badly cast. It is equally possible to have the sleeve relplaced, or to have a d...
