  1. I’ve identified my solenoid is shorting (connect power, it tries to come on). I’m struggling to find a direct replacement and most others don’t look like they fit to the starter. Can anyone point me in a direction to fix. the part number is a lucas 76929a (assume this is part number)
  2. Thanks all for response, I’m glad it sparked further useful queries..... onto the next question ...

  4. Hi again, just curious if this is correctly wired as my starter comes on straight away when connecting battery, so unsure if The switch is incorrect or I have a live earth on starter, so confirming this first. there is also a white and pink behind the two white on the left.

Its now got to a point where you can start it without choke as long as you rev but it won’t idle. Its running so rich, I did all the checks I could do then got it to a garage.

    Rims for wheels

    My steels either need a refurb or Treat myself to a set of the pictured rims (they look like two different sorts). My question is does anyone have photos of them on their cars? Also are they prone to falling off? thank you
