    trouble

    Not necessarily. Https just means you have a secure connection and that your browser is happy with the site’s certificate. An expired certificate can give those symptoms but that doesn’t seem to be the case here.
  2. Doesn’t the ptfe tape get scraped off when you slide the joint together? Is there a technique to it?

    Heatshields

    Yep. If you look at Ian's post you'll see he has altered the reference to the stabiliser bar from Stuart to Stef.
  4. I’ve used ep 80/90 then Penrite 40 then ep 80/90. No perceptible difference.
  5. Called the “lump” if I recall correctly.
  6. If I were you I’d drain it and replace with GL4. GL5 additives might be attacking the synchromesh teeth. That’s the opinion of many in the past. I’m no oil engineer though.

    Heatshields

    I think you’re referring to Stef’s picture Ian.

    Heatshields

    Just to add the opposite view, I've got a standard exhaust manifold (because it's better than many tubular ones) with an ARE heat shield and cold air feed. It's fine.
  9. I agree with Mike. A 1" hole won't allow you to see get an 8 point socket (you'll need that for the square plug) and extension onto the plug let alone get it back into place. With a 3" floor grommet in there it's a breeze once you've sorted out the carpet. I just lift up the tunnel section of my carpet and there it is.
  10. Royal Blue I expect Tony.

    Angela Merkel

    It looks as though we need a sarcasm emoji.

    Get one, get the other.

    Angela Merkel

    I don't think Farage was sacked, his contract wasn't renewed. Despicable man.
  14. My type 2s also bolt though the body into the boot area.

    ammeter

    That's true for a moving coil ammeter where a shunt is required to measure current. The TR ammeter is a moving iron instrument and all the current passes through a few turns of very thick copper wire. The resultant magnetic field deflects the moving iron which is attached to the pointer. Even with a low resistance shunt, maybe to extend the maximum reading, the meter is still measuring current directly, but not all of it.
  16. CV joint grease for me.

    Signs

    Here’s one from me.
  18. If you don’t care about animal welfare then you’ll probably be OK with chlorinated chicken.
  19. Here you go. The highlighted part shows how the govt will get around it when the US demands come in. They’ll just change the legislation and claim they’re following the science.
  20. As I understand it chlorination is an attempt to mitigate the effects of the appalling conditions the birds are reared in where disease is rife. No thanks.
  21. I read somewhere that a condition of importing such things as chlorinated chicken from the US will be that the source is not to be marked on the product. If that’s true how do you choose?
  22. Not wishing to complicate matters but after one heat cycle any air below the radiator cap will have been replaced by coolant drawn from the overflow bottle. This is why it’s correct that when cool the water level will be at the base of the radiator cap.
  23. That’s how mine is and how it should be I believe.
  24. While you’re looking into it make sure you have the correct type of radiator cap. It should be bidirectional, having a small valve in the centre which opens to allow coolant back into the radiator when cooling down. As Andy points out it should be a 7 lb cap and the overflow pipe should be immersed int the overflow bottle which should be 1/3 full when all is cold. Make sure that the pipe has a slash cut at the end so it doesn’t get sucked into the base of the bottle.
  25. Somebody has wired the inhibit switches to operate like an A type. As I have done on my 4A.
