But the dizzie won’t rotate? But the car runs.... others will have more wisdom but it has to be catching on something
Only the dizzie body that is seized. Rest appears to be fine though may not be after I have loosened it.

Stuck distributor

So is the timing actually out ? My own stupid fault really. Car runs fine but I wanted to check that the timing was correct so highlighted timing mark and was going to check static timing first when I found the problem. BUT I could have left it and carried on but NO because it is wrong I have to fi...

Rereading your problem it seems 5he dizzie won’t rotate, then that being the case suggest the clamp bolt (3mm) is not slackened sufficiently
No the clamp bolt is loose and the clamp plate is free and moving easily.

Well, this car never stops amazing me and how much of a fight she can put up to stop me renovating her. I was going to run a strobe light to check the ignition timing. Set strobe up and slackened distributor hold down clamp. Check to make sure it could be rotated. NO the bloody thing is seized solid...

Spare wheel

Does anyone have photos of the spare wheel layout please.

I have the spare wheel only but need to know what the original spare wheel set up was, what jack was used and how was the wheel retained. I need to purchase jack etc to complete this part of my rebuild.

Many thanks,

Keith

Window motor and wiper blades

Ok Keith Glad to hear Dad is ok, got personal troubles myself. Ripping working motors out of working units is stupid, as the lift units would be scrap. Brand new units are only around £60/70, and after you have spent the time swapping just the motors what have you saved??.Yes I fully understand tha...

Diff unit oil seal

Yes. Make sure the car is well supported as you will have to pull hard on the big nut to get the flange loose. Mark the position of the nut relative to the shaft as it has to go back in exactly the same place. You may need a puller to get the flange off. After replacing the seal tighten the nut to ...

Diff unit oil seal

I am so hoping the answer will be yes.

Can the oil seal, diff unit to prop shaft, in my diff unit be replaced with the axle and diff unit still in place ? Please say that it is.

Many thanks for your time.
