  1. 42 in Euroa, where I keep my car. Just replaced the voltage stabilizer to make sure I have an accurate temperature gauge for the weekend.
  2. Yep, it was the voltage stabilizer. Now I can throw away the 1/2" dowel dip stick.
  3. Don't know if I'd be happy driving around with a pump that mysteriously came back to life. I'd keep using the old 984.
  4. My sliders allow much more movement on one side than the other when installed. I put it down to the production processes back in the '60's. Dedicated components weren't made RH & LH to suit the final installation.
  5. Water's getting into the gauge from rain or washing. If you have the skills to remove the gauge you would be able to replace the gaskets behind the glass. I purchased new gaskets from a UK Smiths/Jaeger specialist and followed instructions that were readily available on line. Unfortunately the link to the gauge repair instructions is in my home computer which I can't access at the moment.
  6. Cleaning in the engine bay might have disturbed the inertia switch that cuts off the pump's electrical supply. Have a look for a white cylinder next to the windscreen wiper motor- the button on top of it should be depressed.
  7. The dew point of the air in the gauge cases is higher than the glass exposed to cold outside air. Do you drive your car outside from a warm garage ?
  8. No. I paid a bit extra to get a filter from an Australian company whose filters I've been buying since the late '60's called Ryco. The filter I use is a Ryco Ryco R2132P .
  9. I was told the difference between the two CAV filters was in the adhesives used to hold the paper element in place- that was years ago when I was offered a supply of surplus CAV diesel filters cheap.
  10. And China's boycotted Australian lobsters, sending the price plummeting- I had two over Christmas.
  11. My mechanical fan provides adequate cooling during Australian summers, but I don't use the car much these days when the temperature is above 40 degrees Centigrade. But ,then again, I don't use my car where I could get stuck in traffic jams.
  12. I just make my hoses up out of high pressure Gates Barricade.
  13. Good luck. Glad I'm out of it.
  14. It may not be Brexit-CV19 is playing havoc with shipping worldwide.
  15. If you're fortunate enough to own a PI TR6 , there's nothing more useful for looking after your car than this forum.
