Ford 2.9i rockers/ tappets

Yes, when they’re overlapping (one valve closed and just before the other opens) on any given cylinder, the opposite bank will have two cylinders with a valve open and one with both valves fully closed - this is the one to adjust.
Goddit! Thanks

LED bulbs for dash panel instruments

I cannot find them although I have only had a quick look - let us know where you got them from - after you tested that they fit of course.

Which ever cylinder the rotor arm points to, adjust that one.
Would that be for inlet or exhaust valves?

Ford 2.9i rockers/ tappets

There are no locking nuts on my 2.9i engine tappets. Is that typical?
Whilst here shall be grateful if someone will give me the order for setting tappets on this engine (such-and-such rocker position gives setting position for so-and-so tappets, if you know what I mean).

Bogging at 4000 rpm

Thanks to the lists Chris has posted and the emails we have exchanged I have updated the Middlebridge drawings on the NE noggin site to identify the pin numbers I had previously been unable read on the original MB drawings. The only difference between Chris's lists and the MB wiring I can see in pi...

LED bulbs for dash panel instruments

yes it looks like a BA7 but the clock was the only place I left the original bulb in as a BA7 did not fit - the BA7 is less than 20mm long to start with - I said so in my previous mail. Hi Peter. Have sent off for BA7S type (21mm long) for the clock (may as well do the lot whilst about it). Good ti...

Hi Peter.
Bulb for dash clock seems oddball and not shown in the chart. Can you identify it? The body is approx 7mm dia and overall length is 20mm.

It isn't the bulb so much as the bowl and lens. I have found Cibies to be fine, Wipac Quadoptic not bad. Looking at the pattern on the wall, it looks fine.
Any further update on the LED bulbs? Have you tried them on the road yet?

no ballast resistor fitted to the MB's
"No ballast resistor". Does that mean it's a 12V coil not 9V or is it t'other way round?

Bogging at 4000 rpm

I recently had dead engine on MB50. Eventually found no power going to ECU and discovered a faulty cable (red) at the battery positive terminal was the problem. To the naked eye the cable seemed OK but in fact the wire strands were mostly broken and when it was replaced by a new cable the old gal fi...

Updating ignition?

As plug leads and coil seem like originals and are now best part of 30 years old I'm considering fitting new (then holding the old items as emergency spares) and whilst about it hopefully improving the ignition with better components. So:- (1). Is it worth buying best quality leads (8mm Magnecor cos...

9's for the gauges 7's for the switches - I have a MB as well. If you want to double check remove the glove box and you can get to the nearest gauge and clock no problem. Fitted LEDs to everything but the clock which is a different size so left the filament bulb in with its green cover.
Thanks.
