  6. Hamish If this helps assume 10" BTDC mark on pulley (to the right viewed from front) is opposite pointer on front cover with ignition firing, this is before the TDC mark on pulley lines up with pointer , hence timing is set at 10" BTDC. Hope this makes sense. Harvey S, Maitland

    Headlight Bulbs

    Apart from sealed beam headlamps that are checked on main beam most headlamps are checked on dipped beam and provided the alignment complies with the correct beam image they will pass. It is only HID bulbs fitted in existing H4 halogen units that would fail under section "C" of the defects light source & lamp not compatible. Always remember no element of dismantling is allowed during a test. Complete L.E.D conversions should not be a reason for failure provided they give the correct image. Harvey S. Maitland

    suck or blow

    The majority of manufactures of modern cars have the fan behind the radiator ( assuming they have all done their homework ) this would appear to be the most effective position. Harvey S. Maitland

    Headlight Bulbs

    Just a point on fitting HID bulbs, Class 4 test manual section 4.1.4 Compliance with requirements states existing halogen headlamp units should not be converted to be used with HID bulbs, if such a conversion has been done you must fail the headlamp. Harvey S. Maitland DVSA AE
