    Horn fuse blowing

    It normally shorts out top section of the stearing coloum, as you move the stearing wheel it shorts out blowing the fuse, I have had smoke coming out of mine, I would lower the fuse, It became such a problem I used thinner cables on relays this allowed a permanent fix, Hope this helps , pink
  6. Thank you gentleman, the lady who hit me has cashed me out, what a bit of luck, lots of things to do I September so, a cover.up
  7. I went to see my son this afternoon he has a property on the beach with a garden veranda over the beach , below is a pathway this pathway has locked gates, the tide is comeing in fast, and is up against the sea wall , a family comes around the point, mum and dad and three young children one in a push chair, in a panick, realising the danger the father pushes his wife up the sea wall And passes the kids up, they cant get out (path on the wall) because of the locked gates, so we had to walk around and unlock the gates to let them out, could have been nasty, The sea is so dangerous Any way I settle back down for a chat and a cupa, the next min a lady next door comes round, and said is that your blue car out the front, i have just reversed in to it, I should have stayed in bed Her are the pics I felt sick I really did, any was at least she had the decency to tell me, So a little game, how much is it goi g to put it right Pink

  9. Love the write up Pete, a lot of helpful information I have an alloy sump, baught it second hand, never been a problem, apart from a slight leak from the drain plug, I no alot of people are going to disagree, but I always use silicone to fit the sump, also on the thread of the bolts, (and any item that requires a gasket, ) I use flat washers, lightly bolt it down, when the silicon has gone of I torque it down, I no people believe it could break of internally, and block an oil feed, but this dousnt happen as silicon is really difficult to remove, I learnt this from an old biker, who helped me with the restoration of old british bikes were there is a lot of movement in the casing, Just my thoughts pink

    Hi Johannes, thank you for your reply, what about modifications are they aloud , Hi hawk , think you have got that wrong, no way I would run tyres that were over 10 years old the rubber goes hard espeshially in the sun, risk to your live and others Cheers pink
  12. Hi Neil, your right it should adjust, but even when fully adjusted it still isn't enough, There is also a measurement Pink
  13. I have had this problem, blodey annoying, I cured it by putting a couple of washers between the servo and the master cylinder (were it bolts on ) Thicknes of washers, Approx 1/8 of an inch, this allowed more play for the tipet valve to operate , Pink
