Ss1 won't start query.

Hi thanks again for the help. Found the two fuses at the front of the fuse box, that's why the fuel pump powers up off the ignition switch with a earth wire at the pump.(If I wire it any other way it doesn't work. The fuse on the ecu circuit is good, I found that one of the relay wires under the rel...

Ss1 won't start query.

Hi Thanks for the help. As I said I hate electrics so am struggling a bit. I found the power resistor but what I have found is that the wires were out of the plastic housing / connector when I started looking at the dizzy wiring connector. Which is the correct way round for the wires ? (I may have t...

Ss1 won't start query.

Well I've spent most of the day trying to sort the electrics. Got the lights working but still can't get the damned thing to fire. Can't find any issues with the wiring but reading through some previous threads where is the power resistor so I can look at that. ? Thx Mike

Ss1 won't start query.

Hi thanks for the replies. I'll print the wiring diagram off and have a go tomorrow. I wired the earth at the pump as I only had one wire. Is the earth wire shielded ? If so I have a spare wire and will try connecting that. I'll cut the connector block from the dizzy and put a temporary connector in...

Rescue Mission Required

I'm surprised that motorhog have kept the vehicles this long. As he says there are £400 outstanding an fees are racking at £10 each plus vat each car per day. If you add in he wants £300 for a buying fee your looking at a bill in excess of £900. The easiest way would be for him to contact Motorhog, ...

The hoses are a standard m10 x 1.0 threaded end it's just the length that changes. As I need 2 complete sets it could get expensive !! I'll have to have a chat w...

Front brake hoses

I've checked the forum and can't find anything on the front brake hoses. What car did they come off ( metro ones are too short don't ask me how I know !).
Is there an alternative that fits ?
