Wiring diagram

For the record, I found Peters wiring diagram and colour system good to follow. Ours is a later 1.8, but everything in the lighting seems the same. Cheers again, Rob

Wiring diagram

Had a few hours on the headlight problem with no positive results so have give it up as a bad job. It’s probably inside the unit as Peter suggests as everything else seems to work. Just don’t fancy the prospect of dismantling the front end to get them out. Basically what we now have is lights that w...

Wiring diagram

After I’ve read the book on circuit diagrams I’m thinking of disconnecting one of the motors as it seems to take a bit more effort to wind by hand, and see if the other one lifts or not without popping the fuse. Lights work fine so we are getting power to them anyway. We’ll see how it goes. Keep you...

Wiring diagram

Cheers to you both. Might need that? Can wind the lights up by hand so assume motors aren’t seized. Managed to get the car through the test by leaving them in the up position. Will have a look and see if we can figure out why it blows the fuse when fitted. Thanks again, Rob

Engine runs fine. He has started to scrape off the paint so it looks rubbish but would be nice done. He’s asking a...

Coolant capacity on 1.8 SS1?

Hi all, going to replace the antifreeze on the SS1. Have no idea how long it’s been in there. Any idea of the coolant capacity to work out the amount we need mixed in? Will be using neat concentration not the mixed stuff. Cheers, Rob :D

Got the new tyres today, look like a race type pattern. We will be using the car on the road so will soon scrub them off a bit. Plenty of lanes round the dales to play on. :D

Hillclimb tyres SS1 1800

Somewhere on here I was advised which tyres were the best for the road class climb regs. Can’t find the post, we are nearly ready to get them ordered. Will be using standard 14 inch rims probably or maybe some spare Mazda ones we have for the Chevette road rally car which are also 14. Any informatio...
